Re: Post your daily exercise routineI work part time, all standing, walking quickly also look after a very active 4 year old one afternoon/evening a week.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineAt 79 I don't do a lot of exercise as such, but not having a car I do walk as much as I can, and once a week I walk with my shopping trolley to our local Aldi to do my weekly supermarket shop ( cheaper by far than the local Sainsburys which is 10 mins at the most away), which takes me half and hour there and half an hour back.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineIn the past i had many hobbies to keep me fit and healthy most of them contributed to health problems over the years in some way or other. Eventually started walking lots and also swimming, both of these i highly recommend, in the case of walking having hobbies that you can enjoy at the same time boosts the enjoyment of the days workout.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineWhen I began this thread, I said I would post the occasional exercise routine. I know this may look rather double Dutch to some of you but it’s fairly typical of the exercise routine I do in the gym.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineHi Floydy, I used to be a Keep-fit fanatic and weights, but now at the age of 60, I have two discs in my back sticking out, sciatica, leg muscle problems and can't even get up a hill now, but I do try and walk for 1 hr. every day, plus I do a lot of housework, I do try and do some home exercises but I have to be careful of my back.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineI've had both knees replaced so I don't do the Gym, I swim 50 lengths a day Monday to Friday and walk a few miles daily with the dogs. I also ride one of my partners Clydesdales, but not on my own. I think my Surgeon would have a fit if he knew about the horses but I refuse to give it up, I just need help mounting and dismounting....
Re: Post your daily exercise routineSome great replies on here, thanks for the responses they are much appreciated.
Re: Post your daily exercise routineRan 6 miles tonight and now enjoying cold milk with sum vodka innit - nice . Wonderful sport is running / jogging but it ain't for everyone. So many aspects to running making it a sport you can continue to do throughout your life and not get bored (as long as you consider it from all angles). I'm looking forward to getting my BMI right down (body fat) which will enable me to run as of days of old - on my toes. Seems to make no difference how old you are as the challenges are the same, but you run a little slower (maybe).
