That's what we have been trying to do more of.
For D, with the aim of building her bone mass, and for ourselves too!
Exercises are just not the same.
I used to walk a lot. 5 km or more 2 or 3 times a week.
But now it has changed to swimming.
No impact on the knees.
When I first started, I struggled to complete even 4 laps, though in my younger days, I used to do 20 laps almost everyday.
I can feel my stamina improving, coz I have no problem doing 5 continuous laps now.
And every visit, I try to do 10 laps, at a slow pace.
But this morning, a friend, whom I used to walk with, called for me to walk, and so I did.
We did our usual 5 km walk.
And at the end of the walk, I felt different.
I had no problem finishing the 5 km even though I haven't walked that distance for a long time, more than 6 months. I guess the stamina I built from swimming played a part.
I perspired, and it felt good. We never perspire when we swim.
But my legs are beginning to ache a little. Standing up after squatting takes a little effort.
Not sure if walking is a bad exercise due to the effects on my legs. But I like that sweating out bit!
What do you think?
