Walking because you do not need special equipment, anyone can do it and you can do it pretty much anywhere. It also enables you to meet and interact with other people.

Dance--most recently line dancing. Line dancing is a low impact exercise that requires brain activity along with the physical activity which is a wonderful combination for deterring dementia. https://activities-for-seniors.info/health-benefits-of-line-dancing-as-activities-for-elderly/ 

It is low-impact, it is social, you don't need a partner and the activity between your brain and physical exercise is a real plus.

 

.I am a professionally trained dancer and recived my certification in Jazzercise when I was 65. I am 76 years old have been teaching line dancing to seniors for the past eight years in California and now in Chicago. I am currently teaching five hours/week (down from 10 hours/week for the past seven years).

I love doing Zumba at my gym!  It's an easy way to get over 5,000 steps in just an hour!  Today I was able to take a Zumba class in the morning and another at night.  I accumulated over 20,000 steps!  What I like most about the classes is the social aspect, the music, and the dance moves.

I’ve been riding recumbent bikes for 30 years. They’re great for transportation, exercise, socializing, and just plain fun. The key is variety. I ride them on trails, roads, around town, and take them on trips. Much of my riding is in traffic-free neighborhoods where I put on headphones and listen to podcasts.

I like walking the distance. Walking helps my knees.

@d489295p Contratulations - that sounds like lots of fun. I have a 1st degree (not black) belt in Karate and studied some taekwondo years ago. I'd love to start a "grandma-kwondo" here in our little town at the library which is also our rec center. Any ideas how to go about it? From an 80 year old runner-chicken/goat farmer.

Taekwondo.  I started when I was 52 and now I'm a 2nd Degree Black Belt Granny!    It's liberating and empowering.  And I've made a best friend.  Together we started Momkwondo so we could encourage the other moms to get on the mat !

Good luck - I hope you make your goal. I've been running for 39 years and never ran fast, just consistently. Best was 18 min 16 sec for a little 2-miler, but the half marathons and 10ks are slow but fun.

Running and Weight lifting.  Really trying to break 45 minutes for the 10k.  7 minute miles will put me at about 43/44 minutes.
