What Was Your Work Out Today?

    I am veering off the actual topic a little but wondered did you all do a lot of exercise (running, weight lifting, etc) before you got on your weight loss/gain journey?

    Yes, but as an adult it was broken up by numerous knee surgeries and limited by the state of my maltracking patellas before my two most recent surgeries. Rowing is new for me as of this past summer, but cycling is what clued me in, years ago, that maybe I should see an orthopedic surgeon because my knees should not be hurting when I'm riding my bike.

    Rowed on the water for about an hour and a half, this time with an advanced boat. Eventually we got hemmed in by the fog and had to go back to the dock but I made a lot of progress technique wise.

    Yes, I did about the same amount of exercise I do now. I started being active in my mid-40s, after cancer treatment. I increased activity level gradually. I lost 50-some pounds at age 59-60, after being obese for decades (and staying obese while regularly and vigorously active most days of the week). I'm 63 now, maintaining weight, and about the same exercise schedule I've had for a dozen or so years.

    On threads like this one, people who feel most enthusiastic, confident or proud of their workouts are more likely to post, I believe; and people who are new to exercise, feeling tentative about what they're doing, or are maybe not having fun yet, are less likely to post. This isn't absolute, of course. But I think it's important to realize that a thread like this probably isn't representative of the average of everyone here, let alone the average of the general public; it's the average of those on MFP forums who are willing to type a blurb about their workout.

    Saturday was rest day so I hiked our old pup 2.5 miles at a sniff every tree pace. It was great to be out in the snow letting him explore.
