I am 49 and recovering from pelvic floor operation. (1 month on) my doctor has cleared me to exercise again but not high intensity work ( running, spinning, kickboxing etc). I should not particularly put pressure on/in my lower abdomen.
I have 2 weeks before I go back to work and can spend a maximum of 2 hours each day in the gym which also has a pool. I have been walking around 10k each day for the last 2 weeks.
What are your thoughts on what is best to fill this time with weight loss goals in mind?
What will be most effective?
Yesterday (1st day back) i cycled on a recumbant bike for an hour (normal bike a bit uncomfortable still) then did 15 minutes eliptical and 30 mins breast stroke.
Before surgery I was doing a spinning class (or equiv) + one of elliptical/ rowing/ treadmill/weights pretty much 6 days a week. I then cooled down with a slow swim.
I was just beginning to get running and had run 3 X 5ks but it will be 12 weeks before I am allowed to run again.
Your thoughts much appreciated ;-)
Come so far.....Gotta keep going till the end.....
