@butterflylan17 It is smart to start out slowly. I had been doing water classes prior to my surgery so the group knew me there. When I resumed I went to class late every day to do a shortened version. I like to be there at the end because then there is a lot of stretching, so I preferred starting late to leaving early.
We all need to be empathic to ourselves. Yesterday I wanted to try out yoga in the morning but my back was hurting and I didn't want to start like that. I questioned myself, was I just using that as an excuse, but I decided it really was a good decision. We can only do what we can do.
I generally do water exercises on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Today I am just about to leave to do a session in the gym. I really hate the gym but I feel it's necessary, and at my age they say that it's important to do strengthening exercises. UGH
