    Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    Exercise is known to prevent life-threatening ailments such as heart disease. Despite knowing its value, are you doing the exercise required?

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    My exercise per day includes a return trip to college which is 25 minutes of power walking (8.5kph) each way with about 5kg of laptop/batteries/notes in my backpack

    Wonder if that is considered proper exercise though.

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    I don't dedicate any regular time to exercise, but i'm fairly active anyway. I walk a lot, I have a job which is physically demanding at times, and I go hill walking from time to time.

    Would like to have more time to do rock climbing, skiing and snow boarding, but you can't do everything.

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    I go to the gym when I can, but finding time is the most difficult thing.

    I do walk through london every day though and Bowl once a week.

    If i "dedicated" time to exercise, I wouldn't do it!

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    Normally its football for me twice a week (1h30min) + the occasional trip to the gym when I can find time.

    However during exam time that all goes through the roof.

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    Excluding bedtime activity Id say I get 45minutes per day, though it does take a lot of effort sometimes! Trick is to keep changing the sport/exercise so it doesnt get boring.

    Re: Headlines - Question of the week: do you take the time to exercise?

    I try to go a couple of times a week, maintaining basic aerobic fitness. It needs to be done once you get to the wrong side of 30 :|

    I usually ride a bike for 30 minutes, at a heart-rate of around 150bpm - translating to a 200W workload - that keeps it interesting but doesn't push me to a level that I feel I cannot keep for the duration.

    For me, though, it's more about keeping my weight in check than becoming the next Lance Armstrong or Miguel Indurain.
