Hurting knees is my first sign of too much of load that I am carrying. I don't have access to a pool, I'm a little envious of that, but I find just walking, and walking some more - and I love Leslie Sansone's WATP DVD's - do the trick for me. Add some Fish Oil supplements and it's amazing what difference a few days can make. I wish you well! emoticon

I haven't done it yet, but I must try exercising in a pool. Keep up the good work and tips everyone!

Is there a way you can have access to the/a pool and walk or exercise by yourself on the off days?

I LOVE exercising in the pool too. The water will take a huge amount of stress off of your knees. There are many folks in my water aerobics class with bad knees.
