Like yourself @Jamie M I only started exercising at the end of April, feeling 100% better every time I go out on my bike. Keep up the great work :cool:

Thought it would be a good idea to open a new thread as to how much exercise we each do on a daily/weekly basis. I for one have resumed exercising on my exercise bike twice a day to help me stay as fit as I can atm & also to maintain a good bgls. My old back prevents me from walking too far for any length of time but I'm hoping to resume swimming soon, used to swim 1mile x 4times per wk (No back pain when swimming) Didn't learn to swim till I was 63! My right knee doesn't currently condone exercise so i start off slowly on my exercise bike then build up, a replacement knee could be on the cards! I also do stretching & floor exercises.

Type2 since April 2016
Diet & exercise only
I use these 2 free apps since not being able to go to the gym. The stretching one I do morning and night. The other I am working through the programme. Currently at 40 days. Takes only a few minutes

I also walk twice a day 2 X 3.7 km

Have lost weight since lock down and use these apps and not the gym. Will save me significant money.

@Wirralass does not visit much these days so she might not reply.

I am thrilled that from tomorrow I shall be back in the pool. None of the 4 pools in a group that I have a membership for have any plans to re-open. But a friend told me her pool re-opened 2 weeks ago and they are re-starting Aquafit from Monday. Just 10 people instead of the usual 30 but I joined and booked a place, after looking at the advice from CDC about chlorinated pools and COVID. I expected the places to be quickly booked but people are still very cautious. Ideally I would like to do all 3 classes a week, but don't want to be selfish if lots of regular people can't get a place. As long as I get one, then I'll check to see if there are still vacancies just before the other classes.
