    I did a modified MIL marathon yesterday: four stores, lunch and her house for tea. Walking around big stores is a safe activity for me in the winter. I did not set any records.

    Ann, that doesn't sound like a modified marathon to me, it sounds like a full blown one.

    Peg, I am with Agate, there was never a time I could run 5 miles. When I tried running I hurt in my side. However, I was a good walker and enjoyed it.

    Sunshine, good day for you as far as time swimming goes. Sorry there was a slight glitch in the muscles.

    Peg, I was pointing out how weak my one side is to a PT due to MS nerve damage, and that's what she said "it is what it is".

    It was a good response because it gave me license to "let it go", it is what it is, and we'll just do the work and what will be, will be.

    I'm still working on new year's resolutions, so haven't given up exercise for chocolate yet.

    When I'm waiting for my water to boil for my tea, or for it to steep, I do exercises now: wall pushups, leg lifts, theraband pulls, etc. That means I end up getting in a pretty good # by the end of the day (I drink a lot of tea!).

    It's just time I would have been standing there anyway that I'm filling with something more productive!

    Suzie Q,, chair excercises,,,, get a 5# pound weight and start with 10 reps,, and switch arms,,, start slow, and work up to twice a day, also increase the reps as you feel stronger..this helped me/ my dad.. and sister,, hope this helps you al;so

    Howie, that she could do. Lifting 10 lb weights would certainly build arm and shoulder muscles.

    Suzie-Q, I think what you are doing is a really good idea. I hate to say this in front of Peg but I have 2lb and 3lb weights. Please don't laugh. I have always had small arms. I wish they were a little larger, but not from eating. I never liked to wear sleeveless blouses because I felt it showed how boney I was in the arms. Not so elsewhere. I am just not proportioned well in the arms and shoulders. Another thing Peg has on me is that she probably was a very active athlete, possible even swimming which really helps to have strong arms. I bet Sunshine has great arms and shoulders.

    P.S. I have not been using any weights recently. But if you can't do as much as Peg start with 2 or 3lbs. They told me it would work.

    Years ago my doctor told me to start with 1# weights and work up gradually. I worked up to 3# but couldn't seem to get any better than that.

    "I think I can, I think I can." Maybe if I tried harder?
