Arrow May Exercise Challenge

We're dancing our way into the Merry Month of May with this month's exercise challenge.

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: May Weight Loss Challenge - 3 Fat Chicks on a Diet Weight Loss Community

This month I will probably be doing most of my exercise in the pool as I'm having a lot of pain in one of my hips. It's been bothering me for about the last 5 years off and on. I had one of my hips replaced about 10 years ago and I think I have to get the other one replaced now. This month I've only walked once as walking is quite painful right now. I have been walking in the pool a few times which is much better than walking on land because there is far less pressure on your joints. I'm going for an x-ray this week and then will see an orthopaedic surgeon to see what he recommends. I'm going to keep working on losing weight as that helps to reduce the pressure on your joints.

May goals: 500 min; 12 days of exercise for at least 20 min or more; 3 interval sessions


01: 25 water walking/jogging/pool exercises; 25/500; 1/12 days
02: 13 min bike; 27 min water walking & pool exercises; 65/500; 2/12 days
12: 25 min water walking/jogging & pool exercises; 90/500; 3/12 days
13: 25 min walk; 115/500; 4/12 days

flower1: That's great that you have pool exercise to keep you going while you work out the issues with your hip. Do you have any ideas about how to do an interval workout in a pool?
