@emb123 I think stairs are the last thing that gets accomplished. I still feel good about it when I go up and down without having to hold the rail!

@debbraw What type of exercises will do in the water? I'm curious, wondering if it's something I might like to add to my own water routine. I do the class then do another 45 minutes or so jogging up and down the lane in three different ways. I do what is basically jogging, then I do a "faux breaststroke" with my feet still on the bottom, and then I go backward, raising my knees as high as I can.

@contentandwell JK – I used to do all of the water aerobics exercises – but just for myself so I could set the pace – not in a class. That would include these:
Water Walking. Using the water to add resistance, this basic cardio exercise can be progressed to provide an aerobic challenge. …
Jumping Jacks. …
Water Treading. …
Knee to Chest Jump. …
Side Shuffle. …
Scissor Jump. …
Butt Kick
Plus – lots of stretches
Finally – laps across the pool with a kickboard to strengthen my legs.
