Welcome to the walking, Yoga, and Pilates group. I am a runner, swimmer, and biker, and I enjoy aerobics and have to do weight training, until I became sick last May.
I have been in bed at least half of the day for 6 months after contracting a virus which caused the bronchi to inflame in my lungs. My chest hurts and I have great fatigue. My question became, how so I exercise?
I figured I could walk 10 - 15 minutes until I became strong enough to do more, and went to Yoga and Pilates classes as I was able. Some days I slept through it, other times I left after 30 minutes since I was too tired to do it.
I have done very little exercise in 6 months due to illness, but I have walked 1-2 miles thrice weekly, and did 1-4 hours of the other.
Those are gentle, easy exercises and they help get sedentary and ill people moving.
I can't wait to get back to strenuous workouts, and you can look forward to becoming stronger and increasing your activity level. You have chosen great activities to start.
