Do what you can for exercise. If you can't walk for 30 minutes, then walk for 10 minutes. Taking a 10 minute walk three times a day still adds up to a 30 minute walk. You can break your workouts up into shorter segments and still get all the health benefits.
Also, if you can't stand for long periods because of your gout, then consider chair workouts. If you go to YOUTUBE and search on chair aerobics, you'll find a number of different cardio workouts that you can do while sitting in a chair. Coach Nicole has a short chair workout you might try too.
I have gout as well and it does make the work outs hard trust me. I have been walking alot this week and my legs and feet keep reminding me to sit down....just sit down... I am trying my best to make it out of the 220's myself I was down to 200 before but I made a U turn and started back up the ladder instead of down for a while. I am glad to see someone else that is sticking to it and not throwing in the towel. I hope to see more messages from you on here, Good luck
