Welcome from Minnesota to all you new folks!

In addition to the type of activity, I find how long I exercise at one time influences how I feel. Now, instead of exercising 50-60 continuous minutes like I used to do, I break it out over the day. For example, I might do 10 minutes of low impact aerobic dancing or exercising in the pool, followed by 10 minutes on my elliptical. On other days I might do a few minutes of aerobic activity followed by 20-25 minutes of strength training. In either case, later in the day I do 10-20 minutes of very gentle Yoga or similar gentle stretching. In addition, when I first get up and before I go to bed at night I do a very gentle (2-3 minutes) of what I call "all over body stretching". I start with ever so gently stretching my head & neck and working my way down through my shoulders, arms, legs, hips and feet all the time staying very gentle. This approach has really helped me manage pain and stiffness. Hopefully it can help others do the same.

Welcome. I am so glad that you chose our team. I did not run myself, but have several friends who lived for the race, the half marathon and more. I have knee issues and rheumatoid arthritis. I am walking a brisk paces and plan to do a Walk for the Cure and several arthritis walks. I also bought well-fitted sneakers that help.

My exercises include swimming, deep water aerobics, cycling. I do tai chi or yoga for balance. I find even 10 minute intervals will help me. Let's continue this talk. Try viewing some of the videos on Sparkpeople. I find them to be helpful in my selection of exercise.

Perhaps others in the team have suggestions. Best wishes! Sandy

I am on my way to better health!

Hi, this is my first post on any team... I identify most with Challegned by Arthritis group, because I am not able to run anymore (for more than 5 yrs) and I've not been able to find any exercise to replace it. I've gained 15 + pounds and every day I wish I could run... I am looking for support to help me choose to exercise everyday and maybe some suggestions to feeling better and being capable of doing more. Thanks for being here!
