    Swimming is probably my favourite form of exercise. I love swimming laps — it’s easy on my joints and I find it to be very meditative. I can’t listen to a music or podcast so it’s a relatively peaceful/contemplative experience. Do you enjoy swimming? Has PD affected your ability to swim or confidence in the water at all? Do you like swimming laps or do you prefer floating around in the water?

    I enjoy swimming. Unfortunately since I got the PD, I can’t swim as I did before (until my age of 59 I used to swim 40 50 mts laps, no stop, mostly crawl). Now, almost 65, diagn. 4 1/2 yrs ago, even when covered from L/C, I can’t swim more than 10 15 mts laps no stop.
    What is your swimming routine? Do you know of anyone with PD that can  swim even if  he’s OFF? Have you got any tricks to regain good rythm if s.o. got PD?
