Wow. I know that's a fantastic routine because I had chemo/radiation x2 and 3 surgeries (not counting the biopsies) in 2012-13. At 74 I do only the 2.5 walk 5 days a week. It counts as cardio because half is uphill and increases my heart rate sufficiently. Whenever I started a weight routine at first I got edema because circulation is not the same after surgery. People are like Humpty Dumpty -- they can fall or be taken apart but not put together exactly right again.elisa wrote: ↑Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:32 pm66-year-old female , retired now for 8 years:
daily AM walk 2.5 miles
3X a week strength training for 20-25 minutes using mostly machines with some free weights
2X a week water fitness
3-5X a week Zumba
daily 20-30 minutes yoga/stretching
15-20 minute easy walk in evening most days
biking is my only transportation so generally several easy city miles a week
While exercise and controlling weight have always been part of my life, exercise became crucial when I began to recover from chemo/radiation in 2012. Key for me is a routine that I mostly enjoy rather than an obligation.
However, I am inspired by your post and will start up with the weights again. Maybe with all the walking the edema will not recur. Thx for posting.
