sorry to be welcoming you but this is such a great place.
I could not work out in my major flare and due to prednisone sore joints I have not been able to get back into my step cardio class, it can be hard for me to walk (once I get moving I can go faster, but I cant do all the stuff I did before.......hopefully soon!!)
I am in a mini-flare right now (compared to my major flare = ) and sometimes walking quickly on the treadmill I think gets my system moving. So lately I wait until I have to have a bm then I go on the treadmill, not a run but a fast walk. That has worked well.
I now work out during my lunch hour (I can take it whenever) so now it is easier than to say ok I have to have a bm @ 5pm so I can go work out......
