Thats so good. I always feel better and breathe better when exercised or just going for a walk. I think sometimes we tend to hold back thinking we should just rest( i do), but its important to keep as active as possible and know our limitations.

Thats so true! N i did my usual half mile! Which surprised me. Thought I'd manage about 10😊

Well done. :)

That’s a good thing for you to have done it seems. Keep going. Xxxxx

Yes, thankyou, i try to go 3 times a week. But last weeks Weather, kept me indoors. Hopefully, Spring is on its way. 😊🌻

well done - I miss my swimming- I keep thinking I'll start again but don't find any time

You make me want to get back to swimming too! Have to get organised. Swimming laps opens up my breathing, or at least I believe it does. 😊

Hi Robin, yes i really believe it does. I,ve always Swam, and when i was diagnosed, asked the Specialist if the Chlorine would bother my Lungs. He said that the benefit of Swimming ie: working the Lungs out would far outway any damage by Chlorine. So do go. 😊

Hi when you swim laps do you have to have a 20 seconds breather before you do next lap I do the breast stroke Marian x

Hello Marian, no i don't stop. Used to have a breather when i first started doing so much. But used to it now. I do mostly Breast stroke too. Can't get me breath with the Crawl. πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈπŸŒΊ

Dubba61 that's great your swimming. I used to do 70 laps in the early morning while still dark outside. I really enjoyed it and yeah it really does help with breathing. I can't anymore due to gaining weight and smoking again. Keep up the great exercise. Your doing wonderful!!#

Thankyou, lovedogs. N wow! 70 that's great! Don't let the weight put you off going. My friend is 25 stone n she goes n swims like a fish. πŸ˜ŠπŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ
