I want to exercise, but....

Monday, April 08, 2013

Many of you know that I would LOVE to be out there walking, bicycling, etc...

However, due to me being hit by a car, my ACL is torn.

How does one exercise with limited space in their house (and living with a cranky old man to boot), and not having the finances to be able to go to a pool?

Ideas?

I'm frustrated with my lack of being able to get active again.

    Any of the seated exercise videos that Spark has? They are free.

    Could you get pool exercise prescribed for you? Just thinking...
Does your local school have a pool open to the public? I can imagine your frustration in not being able to exercise. Hope everything else is ok. Did you find a job?

    I need to have a follow up with him. Right now, my ortho's first concern is SURGERY (boooo). So, I'm kinda playing it by ear. As far as the pool idea, thanks!

    Are there exercises that your doctor recommends while you are healing?

Are there lower cost options for using a pool? (I go to our local Parks Dept pool, not during open swim, but during adult exercise fitness class. It's the cheapest option in my town)

Hope you can find something that will HELP your knee and not hurt it!
