Yesterday went back to the health club-first time since my knee replacement surgery. Had to use my walker/rollator but am determined to work hard and get rid of it. Met with Robyn-my trainer-she set up a program to get started on. Did head over to the cardio equipment. Could NOT get on the upright bike-felt too unstable in trying to push myself up on the seat. Did go to the recumbent-and had problems with that too. Finally a gal came over and helped-even just having the extra person there was enough to keep me at it-and not give up. So did a random program for 20 minutes. Must find out from Robyn which program I should be using.
Felt good-Has been several years since I've been able to do any sort of cardio with my arthritic knees (not enough flexion to make a complete revolution in the recent past.)
