Do any of you exercise regularly?
What kind of exercise - and how often do you work out?

 1:26 pm on Nov 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Just out of curiosity:

1. Does any of you people ever exercise physically?

2. What kind of exercise/sport are you into?

3. How long have you been regularly exercising?

4. How often do you exercise?

5. What is your experiences so far? Do you feel better?

I myself have been going to my local gym for 20 years 4-5 days a week. I lift weights and use different machines to keep in good physical shape. This has helped me a lot in my daily life. I feel energetic and can handle stress quite well, and I think I owe it to the fact that I`m exercising.

I am 29 years old and have 2 children. This year is the first year that both of my kiddies are in school full days so I decided it was time to get in shape. Started in September (and I make my 18yr old nephew go with me to the gym) and already can see a difference. I really only need to lose about 10 lbs so I decided this past Friday to start a protein diet. This lasted until yesterday. YUCK! Meat and eggs...not my thing. I'll stick with the gym and forget about dieting!

Nice thread:)

Iv started going to gym again every morning before work, and then I surf every evening, depending on how good the waves are. Oh and I go clubbing every weekend as well and some times during the week. I like to think that dancing contributes to staying fit;)

I walk atleast two miles a day. The down side is that it is usually down to the donut shop at 6am to get the really fresh donuts. I can't remember whether I got addicted to the walking or the donuts first. Bear claw and a cup of coffee - breakfast of champions!

...drat, now I'm hungry already. Turkey sandwiches anyone? ;-)

I go to 3 different Jims 5 times a week. They give me all the exercise I can handle. (sorry, I forgot their last names)


 12:05 pm on Nov 30, 2002 (gmt 0)

Phew, that really knocked me out, reading this thread.....
Mivox - I lived for quite a while in/around London. Working in the (Wild)West End and City using the underground can be a great way of keeping in shape.
Time for lunch :)

nell! lol - Feeling a bit sparky today are we? ;) That was good.


 12:22 pm on Nov 30, 2002 (gmt 0)

LOL nell.

I'm just glad that you didn't say you go to three "Johns" each week. <cheeky grin>


 12:27 pm on Nov 30, 2002 (gmt 0)

Sounds like nell's feeling Randy.

I caught the running bug 23 years ago, and cannot stop. I run 6 miles on the week days, and anywhere from 10 to 17 miles on Saturdays. I walk 3 miles on Sunday, else I get injured from too much running. It's helped me immensely dealing w/ all the stress and 'sitting still' time while I was in college.


 9:53 am on Dec 2, 2002 (gmt 0)

Do you run around with a laptop? When do you have time to do anything else except running?


 12:17 pm on Dec 2, 2002 (gmt 0)

No, just these really cool looking sunglasses [lionessconsulting.com...] (or, at least, I think they look cool).

It doesn't take as much time as you think. I'm not fast, so 6 miles on the weekdays takes a little under 1 hour. I do it 1st thing in the morning, so there's no need to schedule it in later on in the day.

The Saturday long runs take up much of the morning, but that is how I like to spend my Saturday mornings.

>long runs take up much of the morning

I know exactly how you feel. It's probably my diet.

Sitting is one of the things about using a computer that drives me crazy. I try to go for long walks every day, do sit ups and stretches etc, and to swim at the Y every other day.

I say "try," because sometimes I get chained to the keyboard... was on a binge for a few days after Thanksgiving to deliver a site plan Monday morning, and it was frightening how much that kind of (in)activity took out of me. I was actually having muscle cramps from not moving enough. I should probably set a timer to force myself to take breaks.

When I visit friends, they wonder why I just keep pacing around and don't sit like everybody else.


 7:31 am on Dec 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

I'm actually a part time personal trainer. Provides quite the contrast for sitting, I started it for exactly that reason and have been working out for years. The upside? You wouldn't believe how many SEO client's I get while I'm training...after all, I have their attention for a full hour and being in a technology hub...they all push me for more information after I reply to the invariable question "so whats your day job...?".

> I know exactly how you feel. It's probably my diet.


This is precisely why I insist on a few minutes of privacy on the privy BEFORE I go for that 'long morning run'.


 3:40 pm on Dec 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

I like to go heavy -- free weights & some machines at least 5 days a week. but it is imporant to have balance in a routine so I counter that with 4-6 12 ounce curls 7 nights a week.


 8:47 am on Dec 13, 2002 (gmt 0)

For the past two years my son, who is 18, has joined me to the gym almost every time I exercise. He is really getting into this routine now. But for me, the most important aspect about this is that I keep up the good and important bond between father and son that normally gets weaker when the children get older. Through the daily exercise we have a common interest which makes it easier for me to communicate with him about other aspects of life. :)


 10:54 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)

I have added a new exercise to my hourly walk to the refrig (flapping my arms) to get another donut...every morning I struggle to get into my sweat suit (new Christmas present).


 11:20 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)

I run 7 miles a day.
At the end of the week I'm 49 miles from home.

I really have my ups and downs with excerise love it, but I do it for a few weeks, stop then start again.

Normally swim five times a week and work out with weights.


 12:26 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

exercise! Is that the latest way to reach the top ten in google:) Not even one push-up a day. Will any of you really miss me when I'm gone? Didn't think so.



 12:54 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

For exercise this winter I walk about 2 miles pulling a 200lb sled, drill 20-50 holes in 12"-24" of ice and plop a transducer down the holes to see if there are any fish. If none...repeat. If some...crack a beer and fish for 30 minutes.

Only on weekends. I tend to lose 20 lbs by Spring. (Even with the obligatory beer to 'lighten' the sled load :)


 2:14 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Push ups and situps only (I've got to work on that) but I also try to walk a lot (until my girfriend complains that the SF hills are too much that is). I sure wish someone would create a combo computer/treadmill! That way you would have to keep walking in order to keep your computer running.


 2:21 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

I do smoke.
Injured, intercostalls damage, numpty broke up a fight and took a bad knock in the ribs in the process, swear it was my brother rather than his opponent.

Normally, i run three times a week, 5 miles + per session.
On top of this dependant on the working week anywhere from 1 to 3 times in the gym, pure strength muscle+stamina, not mass, i'm feel good as i am.
Try to play at least one game of squash a week.
Starting Rock climbing in Jan, should be good, have the money to take it to expidition level, so very interested in it.

Need to do more swimming.

Other than that, if i don't train i get crouchie and feel yuckie


 2:25 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

I run 10 kilometers every other day. And race about 8 organized running and cycling events each year.


 4:34 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Beach volleyball 3 times a week, squash 3 times a week, and 5K beach runs about 4 days a week. Then there's the morning walks with my 2 dogo argentino pups.


 4:42 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Back many, many years ago there was a recommended exercise for tennis elbow.

With your elbow and upper arm as flat on a table as you can, you repetiveley lift a one pound weight.

True, true, it's all true!

Will anybody guess as to what a pint and its glass weighs (when full)?

Close enough for the exercise.


 4:52 am on Dec 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Love this topic, though not the fittest of the lot, but just an advise to help release whatever stress there - the perfect sport would be
One that requires focus & at the same time a great sweat out. So that during the game your mind is concentrated on it & not google. Compared to running , you might sweat but your mind is there in the office.
So I reckon playing chess in a steam room would really help :)
Or playing badminton - smashing the smitterines out of your opponents - that's even better :)
While for cycling sometimes cycling for hours on end under the hot sun, I wonder - wat am I doing with my life :(
so that makes badminton better or chess :) or soccer but you'll have to be dependant on the others. - downside

I walk 50 yards from home to work every day, and then in the evening I do one of the following:

- walk 40 yards to a pub
- walk 55 yards to a pub
- walk 100 yards to a pub
- walk 130 yards to a pub

After that, the maximum distance I have to walk home is about 100 yards.

yokelrobin - you are obviously not drinking enough because if I walk

- walk 40 yards to a pub
- walk 55 yards to a pub
- walk 100 yards to a pub
- walk 130 yards to a pub

then my return would be

- walk 60 yards back from pub
**** it I'll get a cab!

Man... I'm not having a good day today. I was trying to work out how to delete my duplicated message until I realised it was yours :S

One of the pubs is directly across the road from my house (narrow roads here as well :)), and 2 of the other three have a Chinese and an Indian between them and my house, so I'm forced to walk :)
