    I was a distance runner and avid weight lifter before my diagnosis. My neurologist tells me that in order for exercises to really be beneficial, it needs to be intense. I am no longer coordinated enough to run and although I walk daily, it does not raise my heart rate significantly. Weight lifting still gives me periods of elevated heart rate, but it’s not continuous. I’m assuming these activities are still beneficial, but do I need to find new exercises that will be more intense for at least 30 minutes at a time?
