Fitness

Page started April 2016 with this intro: "Here are some exercises that I am doing to get fit and keep fit.  At home and in the gym at Olympia Dundee, also swimming lengths, plus cycling out and about near where I live if the weather is fine."

----------------------------
----------------------------

Another update! 28Oct19: have started back at gym doing some weights, rowing, cycling, because long walks in the cold weather can be more of a challenge, or that's my excuse ...

Today at Trottick Ponds catching up with swans and big baby cygnet:

 


----------------------------

Update 27Oct19: I'm swimming most days at the Olympia Dundee then going for a few miles walk, rather than gym or cycling, will do more of these after moving to Dundee, which I am hoping will be soon, have wanted to flit there since 2012.  I occasionally lift dumbbells at home, lunging along hall and kitchen.

Some recent photos and video after swim and on walks, mostly in Dundee:

Update 25Jun19: Got a gynae appointment at Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, on 17 May 2019 and a pessary fitted for bladder prolapse.  This was after 3.5yrs self managing the condition with pelvic floor exercises, fitness, swimming and cycling.  The pessary has bedded in well and I continue to have no problems with incontinence so feel very fortunate.  The prolapse happened in August 2015 when I had a physical and mental health breakdown after the years of campaigning and complaining, following my son's "unreasonable treatment" in Stratheden psychiatric Hospital February 2012.

Waiting for a gynae appointment re bladder prolapse, to get an intervention, so going easy on fitness and weight lifting.

24 August 2018: focusing on getting fit again

 ----------------------------

use 2.3kg dumbbells at home to exercise




















------------------------------

Update 14Jan17: physio exercises to do after pulled hamstring 14Sep16; will do gym and swim next week. Wintry weather means less cycling.



------------------------------
 
Update 26May16: with better weather I am cycling more, going to the gym and swimming less as it means travelling into Dundee to the Olympia which takes up more time.  I'm also cutting calorie intake so as to lose fat because of a physical health issue, recently diagnosed.
