Smile Water Exercise and COPD

I have between medium and severe COPD and try to exercise often to manage the disease. My gym has an inside walking track and I try to walk a mile every other day (rarely do but try at least 3 times a week). I found I love using the water aerobic equipment and jogging or "riding a bike" in the water and using the water weights, the noodles etc. However, I find I am a little more "breathless" after my water exercises. It is hard to describe. I'm not sure it is the dsynepsia or whatever. Has any other COPDers had experience with water exercises?
