We had a fantastic warm week in Paris, which makes it easy to get out and walk some, even if it’s not fast walking at all.
I am pretty pleased that I have been going back to the elliptical, slowly working up to 30mn cardio, and being careful with warming up. I force myself to record everything I do, this way, I have to remember the warming up and stretching parts, which I never used to bother with.
Here’s my week, from Monday October 4th to Sunday October 10th
Monday: 15mn flexibility, 15mn warming up, 18mn cardio on elliptical, 3mn stretching, 15 physical therapy movements, 11000 steps

Thursday: 15mn flexibility, 3×15 thighmaster, 6×15 single leg raises, 5mn stretching, 10mn warming up, 31mn cardio on elliptical

Sunday: 20 mn flexibility, 10mn warming up, 30mn cardio walk, 6×15 squishing medicine ball with knees, 3×15 standing up from chair, 20mn physical therapy, 10,500 steps
Have to say that yesterday’s cardio walk didn’t agree with my knee and that I will have to be reasonable and stick to the elliptical, which doesn’t hurt at all, probably because somehow, my whole weight isn’t on my legs.
