I now concentrate on using the crosstrainer and low level bike as I was advised that they are kinder for my wonky left knee. I go 5/6 times a week and spend about an hour a time. I try to go first thing in a morning when my energy levels are high and then I also have the rest of the day to do other things. Okay this may be too much for a lot of people but it suits me and I think I actually enjoy it!! My husband reluctantly comes along with me 2/3 times a week - even he has said how he does feel much better - more energy and of course helps with weight.
Just got back from a session and now time for a nice cup of tea.....more tomorrow!
