Post your daily exercise routine

I've just joined the forum and one of my main interests is keeping fit. I train or run about four times a week and I've kept a 'progress journal' on the more specialised fitness websites.

I thought it would be a good idea for you to note a little each time about your own exercises routines, be it walking, running, swimming, weights or anything.

Perhaps we could ask each other for advice, tips or generally converse about our ways of keeping fit.

Shortly, I'll post my most recent outing to the gym.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Well I walk the dogs and I do an office cleaning job 2-4 hours week days apart from that not a lot. Still seem to be here though so it's not killed me yet.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Walking here 1-3 miles a day with the dog plus housework and gardening

I have to smile at the young people (and I know a few) who go to the gym regularly but their houses are a mess and could do with a good clean. I suppose cleaning isn't so glamorous as the gym even if you wear a leotard .

When I have cleaned the windows or dug the garden I feel I have had a good workout.

I recently dug all the soil out of my raised beds /put it on the lawn/tipped horse muck in the bottom/then put the soil back.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

I'm liking these replies It doesn't matter how little you do in the way of exercise, even a short walk is enough. The best response I got from someone summed it up perfectly: The calories burnt off should be more than the calories taken in. I reckon that way we can safely judge our weight to keep some sort of reasonable form

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Good idea Floydy, I believe that while ever you've got your mobility it will keep you young whatever your age. I've been a runner for over thirty years. Although older and slower now I get out four times a week with a longest run of around ten miles on a Sunday. On the non running days I try to go out walking, and use the exercise bike.
I always walk rather than take the car if possible, and love hill work.

I get up, feed the cats and dog, go back to bed, get up again take Floyd out for a walk, sit down. Get up do housework or shopping, go for a nap. Get up again ... all that up and down stuff wears me out by teatime!

That sounds great OldGreyFox. The main thing for me starting again is I never seemed to get enough fresh air. I'm beginning slowly with a mile or two but hoping to increase that soon. I'll always do my gym work too though - it's built into my psyche!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Well, I've had knee, shoulder and neck surgery. What I can do physically is pretty limited.

The only exercise I get is at work. Depending on the production schedule, I walk anywhere between 3 to 7 miles a day, going back and forth between the printing & ink departments.

I wear a knee wrap that's a real life saver.
