If you don't have the energy to exercise a full half hour, break it up; try three 10-minute walks during the day Make exercise enjoyable; recruit a walking partner or listen to music with headphones while on a recumbent bike or treadmill Dress comfortably and drink plenty of water Warm up by swinging your arms or marching in place

The National Comprehensive Cancer Center Network (NCCN) RECOMMENDs patients aim for 30 minutes of physical activity 5 days a week. 

It is important to discuss with your doctor or physical therapist the type of exercise you are considering to ensure it will be safe.
