I woke up this morning to 18 comments on my previous post, an update about my progress in following my exercise plan. So thanks everyone for your unabating encouragements. I feel refreshed after this show of friendship and support.
Now, one comment really struck home, coming from Naomi at A Little Red Hen
very impressive, claude. I am unable to do regular exercise. we have health space in the complex but find the bike as boring as you describe.
On the other hand, is it possible that you are on to an idea i had a few years ago? that people form an online exercise support group…
And that last sentence has been running around in my brain while I was walking my 12,000 in misty, foggy Paris. So much so that I haven’t taken one single photo today!
I was on no idea whatsoever, Naomi, just seeking comfort with my friends, but wouldn’t it be wonderful, if we, elder bloggers who do need more exercise, from the ones who never walk to the ones who are expert joggers, marathonians and what else, what if we created a space where we could find encouragement and help. Nothing judgmental, but as Naomi described it, an elderblogger online exercise support group…
At the moment, I have no idea how to set this up. Maybe in the form of a cooperative blog?
Or a forum –no idea how to run a forum either– what about putting our elder brains together and coming up with something?
Any ideas and suggestions are welcome. If no one suggests anything, then I’ll know that now is not the right time.
