It good to see someone in my age group. I'm also going to the gym three times a week. My fitness center also has a joint tune up program that is endorsed by the American Arthritis Association. We do joint exercises in the water. Water is typically 86 to 87 degrees, which makes it easier to get in the water. I've been doing this since right after labor day. That's another of my weekly goals: fitness training 3 days a week and joint tune up. I'm also in physical therapy for my knees which I'm doing 3 days a week. I counting that as exercise! It has helped me. Probably another months worth of PT. I'm really trying to get moving. I know during the winter months I want to sit and curl up with a good book. At least in the spring, summer and fall I can be out in my garden.
