Nice work, hamster!

 

15 is better than none, melissa. Good job!

 

 

It was FAR too wet to think about enjoying a walk outside, so I walked up and down and around the floors of the apartment building for 30 minutes.

I went snow-shoeing for my usual half-hour, but we went farther on our new trail, so it was more distance than yesterday.

We walked 45 minutes today, part of it uphill and all of it on slippery snow.  Only one fall, too! :)

Hopefully it was a soft landing!

 

I've gotten inspired to go to the contact improv dance jam today. I'd prefer to not fall either.

No falling.

 

How nice to be welcomed back when I haven't been for more than a year and a half.

 

Let's call that 120 minutes of dancing and 45 minutes of walking (to and from the dance studio, I looped through the park on the way home).

No exercise for me today.... I feel like I fell off the "exercise wagon."  

 

I did go on about a 1.5 hour hike with the BF and dog yesterday, which was nice.

 

Before that, I hadn't exercised since Monday 3/3.  

 

I will get back on that wagon tomorrow.


Peace,
Kat

I snowshoed through mush last week, being a southerly cousin of yours, olga.

 

My pulmonologist told me today that I should ideally be doing 60-120 (!) minutes every day (!!!!) of mild aerobic activity (e.g. brisk walking or moderate cycling) in order to keep my lungs alive.  I asked him why I couldn't just sprint 30 minutes 3 times a week on my exercise bike; apparently doing so might kill me given that it sends my heart rate to 200+BPM.

 

Of course, as everybody here knows, I have 3 free hours every day where I could be exercising/hiking across town </sarcasm>.  In reality, I'm a PhD student whose spare time is counted in negatives.  I told the pulmodoc to deal and am awaiting his response. :smartass:


CAUTION: I'm a graduate computational medicine/allied health information student, and NOT a licensed clinician of any sort in any part of the world.  I can come up with lots of algorithms, generalities, and statistics but cannot provide specific medical advice for you!  You, along with your healthcare provider/pdoc/tdoc/etc. are the best decision makers for what is best!

 

Me: MDD, AD/HD, Asperger's/HFA/PDD-NOS/WTF, REM behavioral disorder/misc. sleep issues, some variant of PTSD... toss in hypothyroidism, post-meningitis-related Parkinson's disease/tremor, early stage pulmonary hypertension from a connective tissue disorder that wants me dead before age 60, and a few misc. manly hormone issues, and you'll get a few insights on where that PTSD came from.

 

Now on: Cymbalta, mirtazapine, oxybutynin, clonazepam, lamotrigine, clonidine, levothyroxine, metformin, Testim.  As Velvet Elvis implied, I sound like a freakin' maraca salesman when I go through airport security.

Likeminded, I understand the time crunch, but my GP is the one who told me to exercise daily(he must be friends with your doctor. :) )  He looked me right in the eye and said "If you don't, you are going to end up in a wheelchair, on an oxygen tank." :0  I'm not saying you need to do 2 hours a day---I think that's a bit excessive.  But you ought to try something daily, like a half-hour brisk walk.  But I'm retired, so I know I'm not as busy as a graduate student.

 

Melissa, rest that hip!

 

I mushed through some very wets snow today in 60ºF temps and was sweating bullets by the end.  I guess spring is on the way.

One of the other dogs got out this morning as I was leaving, so I was 30 minutes late for water aerobics, but I still got 30 minutes of deep water aerobics in.

To make up for the other time, I walked for 30 minutes at lunch.
