    are these sentences correct?

    Thank you.

    I would like to go to the gym pool every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month and to walk/do exercises in the park on every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.

    Yes, but there's only one sentence there.

    Re: are these sentences correct?

    I think it's more natural to say "the second and fourth Thursday" - the use of "every" is implied. Or you could say "the second and fourth Thursday of every month."

    This is personal preference, but I didn't find the original phrasing very natural.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: are these sentences correct?

    I would use "the second and fourth Thursday of every month" there.

    I would like to use the pool at the gym on the second and fourth Thursday of every month and walk or do exercises in the park on the first and third Thursday of every month.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
