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.

Me too. Still doing PT for my double knee surgery. go easy

Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.

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?
