post 1 had 147 posts.
post 2 had 112 that lots of exercise friends.

Now we have survival boost 3. Lets play poker with our cancer and take him to the cleaners.

See the first post here about the science of exercise.

This post started out as walking, but we are an open minded bunch and now we have many exercise types listed in the title. Just move if you can.

We also have the unique 100,000km 30 year clinical trial being run here. will anyone make this target, dare is say even earlier than 30 years. It would be just so amazing. Obviously we will all have to live that long to get an invite to the party.

In Sydney Australia, sylvania to sutherland. Bottle and all.
This is the walking post. I am walking to the naturopath right now.
I feel fine, with energy just bad diarrhea. Its good having a bag, I don't have to find a tree anymore. haha

If you have some energy and are well come for a walk with me today. A walk around the world if you will for 10 minutes to 5 hours whatever you can manage. going to do this everyday.

I used to hear " an apple a day keeps the doctor away "

Now I say to myself " a walk a day keeps the monster away"

search on exercise colorectal and recurrance, for details.

come on couch potatoes up and addem and move.

love to all,

Pete

ps I am out the door right now.

1. What is the relationship between physical activity and colon cancer risk?
Colorectal cancer has been one of the most extensively studied cancers in relation to physical activity, with more than 50 studies examining this association. Many studies in the United States and around the world have consistently found that adults who increase their physical activity, either in intensity, duration, or frequency, can reduce their risk of developing colon cancer by 30 to 40 percent relative to those who are sedentary regardless of body mass index (BMI), with the greatest risk reduction seen among those who are most active (3–7). The magnitude of the protective effect appears greatest with high-intensity activity, although the optimal levels and duration of exercise are still difficult to determine due to differences between studies, making comparisons difficult. It is estimated that 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day is needed to protect against colon cancer (6, 7). It is not yet clear at this time whether physical activity has a protective effect for rectal cancer, adenomas, or polyp recurrence (3).
Physical activity most likely influences the development of colon cancer in multiple ways. Physical activity may protect against colon cancer and tumor development through its role in energy balance, hormone metabolism, insulin regulation, and by decreasing the time the colon is exposed to potential carcinogens. Physical activity has also been found to alter a number of inflammatory and immune factors, some of which may influence colon cancer risk.

I'm feeling rather stiff now and I've had a soak in a hot tub already...we'll just have to see when I try to get out of bed ;-)

I've had a good harvest of mint, parsley, rhubarb, chard, bok choy, lettuce and spinach...raspberries, elderberries, onions and peas coming along well. I planted basil seedlings today and some cosmos yesterday. I'm trying to get the back half of the garden weeded so I can plant corn and bean seeds. Last year I never got to it because I was sick and this year that part of the garden is really over-run. As long as I only gaze upon the first half of the garden, it looks great!

Be well,
Janine

Wow, you must have the green thumb. I too worked all day gardening. It has been too cold and wet to see much growth. Yesterday, 84 degrees in Northern Minnesota and today cold wet 57 degrees for the high. What a shocker. Today, I am inside instead of outside in the cold rain. My nueropathy doesn't like cold or wet. Our normal is usually in the 70's for a high of the day. Hope the plants can take it. I know I am staying inside and drinking warm drinks for the nueropathy in my hands and feet. They said this has been the most extreme in 23 years.

Janine,
I envy your beautiful garden. I planted bok choy for the first time and I see some bugs eating the leaves. Have green pepper plants and tomatoes, and planting a row of onions today. It is sunny for the first time in a week. I pruned flowers and my small herb garden. Peas drowned out. Plan to replant.

My wife has joined me and the kids for our morning walk! (The kids are a Beagle mix and a Pekingenese mix.) She also joined me in the Zone diet. We now walk 3-4kms in the morning and another 2-3kms in the evening. We turned off the TV three months ago to be able to concentrate on walking and enjoying each other.

Best Always, mike

my golden rule from the extreme health nuts is if you are tired do n't exercise. let your body heal, recover and then walk.
i waited now almost a full month from operation to even a 3km walk.
today i did a 10km walk at the gym over 90 minutes with lots of lovelly ladies.
maybe review diet and give body a boost.

come on everyone, lets exercise.

hugs,
pete

I invested in a treadmill, because I have NO bag .... so I need...bushes, trees, Portopotty, just in case I wear a diaper. LOL.
Treadmill is great, pu I-Pod on it or my spoken book and "voila" I walk at my own pace. When the weather is good I try to go outside.
When will this potty thing end? It is now 6 weeks after my operation?

When I felt my worst, I tried to get out and walk a couple of blocks. That usually ended in me taking several laps around the block. (Fear of being to far from the toilet and house, etc...) I always felt better after the walk then before. I took naps after my walks because of exhaustion, but never regretted it. The dogs always slept with me too.

Get out and do your best. The fresh air, change of mind set, etc... is a world of good to one's psyche.

My prayers are with you for a speedy recovery, Pepe.

Best Always, mike

dear gracie and all exercisers,

keep us all inspired.

been to the gym with the kids twice over the weekend, did 10 25 meter laps one day and maybe 8 the next. just think that i am towing two kids. makes it a bit harder. my stoma wound has almost most totally healed.

went to the gym today, managed 5km on the treadmill with 3 loo breaks.

for me a reasonable treadmill workout is 7 mets in an hours. so thats only 4 good workouts per week to total 28 met houts which is the required amount to get the 53% recurrance prevention. a few extra mets won't hurt.

life is so difficult with the reconnection. i am obsessed with getting lean. i am 101kg today.loosing about 2 kg per week i think.

hug,
pete

worked up a good sweat.

on the treadmill i raise the incline to 15 degrees and 6km/h i get 10.5 mets/hour

just an exercise tip.

the guys next to me running flat about 10km/h gets 10.5 mets/hour

basically the same cardio workout calories burnt except up hill technique is kinder on joints.

this means i can get 7.5 mets by doing 45 min workout. so to get the 28 mets a week for the 53% risk improvement now means i have to do 4 x 45min workouts. gee thats a wopping 3 hours a week. not much in my books for having a shot at life.

hugs,
pete

My routine is pretty simple right now. I walk 5 miles a day, except the chemo days. (I need to translate how i compare to you guys with the meters and kilometers....I should have some idea, but really i don't.) Prior to all of this i would do water aerobics 5 times per week. My arm muscles have gotten smaller. I prefer to stay out of the chlorine right now.
With having a port, I'm not sure how much upper body work I can do.....never really asked. Would also like to add pilates or yoga, but again.....i forgot to ask the Dr.Doom colon surgeon if i should always avoid abdominal exercies due to maybe always having a weakened abdominal wall from surgery. ??
Anyway....I've always loved exercise....sweating out all that gunk. It's fascinating to see a lot of elderly people doing their thing at the gym. You can see the benefits of exercise, they really don't age from year to year.
GAIL -- did i see where you are from Santa Barbara? I'm jealous. Walking around there would be great. I get there about once every year or 2. Love it!
PEPE -- Having a beach to walk on daily makes me hate you. Just Kidding!
PETE -- Are you on a damn coast, too??? That in itself is therapeutic.
Later.

Im here Graci,
nice to know I was missed. The weather here has been so beautiful I have been outdoors. I am having a long overdue surgery on my foot on june 30 and I cant wait, I used to be an avid walker. I have pain in my left one but I took my 5 yr old grandaughter Hannah to the park and we got carried away. I climbed a hill and we walked 2 miles. My legs have been so weak. I felt so accomplished. I had to admit, I could hear Pete talking in my head to move move move. I am climbing my way back to good health.

Pete, I know our problems are not exactly the same but I have to tell you, and only someone on here would recognize the significance. Last week I was constipated. went a day and a half before I realized it. The toilet has been my best friend for a year and a half, all night long, all morning.
I had a stomach ache and my jeans wouldnt close. then it hit me

Oh My God, I am back to normal. I had a constipated bowel all my life.
I finished chemo end of March. someday my friend you will be able to go for a walk without spotting the closest potty. and I was cleaning a drawer and there were my depends, Nappies. Ha Ha, cancer take a walk, Im back

Now that it is summer break for me (I'm a kindergarten teacher) I have been joining Dick at the gym. We are doing the eleptical climber for 30 minutes and then weights. We have also begun yoga again. I love the yoga.
We have not been out on the water much as it has been windy on our side of the island. I'm waiting for some blue skys and no wind then I'll be on my stand up board.
Take care all.

Aloha,
Kathleen

Dick had 3 good days of surfing, today being the best. The South swell is up so he was in the water by 6:30 this morning. Then, we met and did yoga for 1.5 hours. Good day! (Tomorrow is chemo).

Aloha,
Kathleen
