“I do pushups,” the 86-year-old told an audience at Berkeley Law, adding that she planks, “both front and side,” as well as does weight-bearing exercises with her personal trainer.
Asked how she is feeling now, Ginsburg said that compared with six months ago she is doing “very well.”
Ginsburg announced in August that she had been treated for pancreatic cancer and the tumor had been treated “definitively.”
On Monday, she repeated something she’s said before, that her cancer has left her with a “zest for life that you haven’t had before. You count each day as a blessing.”
Although her health has long been an issue, she does not let it slow her down.
In 1999, she successfully underwent surgery for colon cancer. She was treated for early-stage pancreatic cancer in 2009. Last December, Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung. She was back working out once she was released from the hospital.
