I was an avid exerciser until my crohns hit me last october. I literally went 6 months without working out. Now I am back to it and do feel better for doing it. I can't say mine are overly intense yet but my doc recommened I start slow and he told me I had to begin listening to my body. He said it will tell me what I can handle. Gage how you feel a day after your workout. Are you energized or fatigued? If you are overly fatigued maybe scale it back a bit and see how things go. It is funny before I was hit with my first prolonged flare I took working out for granted. When I was really at my worst I told myself if I ever feel better I will never take this body for granted again and will say a prayer of thanks for every day I feel well enough to work out and so far I have kept to that promise.
