I started VERY slowly. Like a 4 minute lap w/ resting at each end. That was 2 years ago this month and now I'm swimming 1,000 yds almost every day ~~~ well, not traveling, but normally.

Go TEAM! clap

Saturday: bike 15 miles (90 minutes) and yardwork (120 minutes)

Let the yardwork begin! Rototiller time... It is so nice out this weekend. I took the bike ride real slow just to enjoy the sun in early spring cool.

I had planned on going skiing this morning, but I got up late so I went running instead. 7.26 miles 1 hour 12 minutes, and 26 seconds. I should have run further, but I was tired.

Good job everyone, you all are an inspiration.

Lath,
I had 18* 3 inches of wet snow!!!

So I have spent far more time on the shovel this winter than I have walking.. but hay, it gets the blood moving..

Hey Team smile

My husband has driven us around the south west for 4,500+ miles. I feel mostly human when we're on the road, but as soon as we stop my heart gets really heavy again. What's up with that? ohwell

We've landed in western Colorado for a few weeks ~ I think... so today I swam 1,100 yds in about 40 minutes.

I feel like I'm 1,100 years old, but evidently my body is still willing to take me swimming.

I've been watching the action here daily. It makes my heart happy that you're all moving it so you don't lose it.

Go TEAM! clap

I started out dangling too, then worked up to walking laps in the shallow end and doing some deep end work. Eventually, I was able to do less and less in the shallow end, although I still "walked" until I started to spasm. Finally my FP and my rheumy told me to stop that part of my routine (I'm not smart enough to figure it out on my own).

The problem with me swimming laps is: first you have to be able to stay on top of the water. I don't float, I sink like a rock! Our instructor says it's a common problem for tall people. Maybe she was just trying to make me feel better? laugh2

Tomorrow, as with every Monday, my main goal is to make it to PT. Some days just making it into the building is half the battle... If I make it, I will post my time.

Wow Lon what a contrast. You are right. I'm sure shoveling snow is good exercise. Maybe our warm spell is heading east.

True that. I learned watching YouTubes. I'm not kidding. I even learned to flip turn on YouTube. yes

Erica,
Once I went on inhalers my symptoms got better!
In my case asthema was tightening my airways, not congestion.... I could be quite active, but I did have that first heat attack... when I first start out, walking, hiking, riding a bike, smooching, it felt like a truck was on my chest.

much better now
