I have just been walking and doing aquaZumba for the past several weeks. This week decided to try jogging again and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I hadn't lost much of the stamina that I had built up. My jogging intervals are right where they had been before getting sick (3 minutes), but my walking intervals have been a little longer (1 minute longer for my recovery intervals).

I am also just recovering from pneumonia. I had just started C25K training when I got sick, so now I'm back to square one! I'm not ready to start running yet, but I think I'm ready to start walking and doing Pilates again. Ugh.

Do you go to a gym? If so, the recumbent bike (that's the one where you're sitting back in a seat) could be a good piece of equipment to try. Also the elliptical, if you keep the resistance low. Alternatively, things like mat-based pilates (I think there's a free video of it here on Spark) and yoga could also be good - they don't elevate the heart rate that much, but if you're just looking to ease back into movement, it's a good place to start.

I am recovering for pneumonia and I am cleared to workout, but need to take things easy or I will start coughing horribly. I have tried just walking, but what are some other good, low impact activities that I could try while I ease back into exercising?
