[quote="Firestormm, post: 365511, member: 37] Exercise is something that I can only currently engage with through means of a walk outside - but even that I would not class as the kind of exercise associated with GET. Exercise to me in this respect always evokes images of specific routines involving aerobic exertion.[/quote] I think of walking as the standard GET exercise. I was devoting all my energy to walking about the place for a while... only a sensible thing to do if it was going to lead to recovery (which is what I'd been told). I agree with bio that I'd have rather put the energy into play (or even reading the CFS papers which justified manipulating patients in this way).
