Went to the track with a friend and ran 3 1/2 miles. Then we went out for a scoop of ice cream.

I walk every day, about 2 1/2 miles. I have to wait till sunrise, though, which is what I'm doing right now.

Fair trade off.
I quit my job and gained 19 pounds in 4 months. Would that be considered a fair trade off? LOL I need to get back into the swing of exercising in the morning to burn off more calories during the day.

Picking blackberries is, yes. Getting eggs could be, if the hens aren't willing to give them up.

Walked 30 minutes pushing my little one in the bike trailer then ran after him at the park. Hopefully I managed to burn over 300 calories. Sigh...

Have you exercised today?

I liked what Bucky Tom said about swimming. I have enjoyed aquatics all my life for recreation but four years ago when I developed rheumatoid arthritis I joined the YMCA and started joint movement water exercise classes. Now I also do shallow water aerobics classes and deep water aerobics in addition to swimming laps and lap walking. The water has made an enormous difference. As for today, I did an hour of joint movement aquatics and walked a mile on an inside track.

I like cycling, running, and hiking. I've been a cyclist most of my adult life and will go through stages where I'll get involved in long distance cycling (century & double centuries) with small groups or larger organized groups. Otherwise, I cycle recreationally, at least 3x/week. I'm a tinkerer so I like to build my bikes from the frame up.
I've also been hiking evenings regularly with the local Sierra Club here at nearby Griffith Park. Lots of fun there meeting and chatting with new people.

Red face Sands of Time ...

I hope everyone else who posted in this thread has exercised some since their last posts .

10 minutes treadmill yesterday ( I know but I wanted to stop at 5), quick work-out leg presses, sit-ups, crunches arms/chest/lats/shoulders. About 5th workout in last 2 weeks.

But have had great difficulty sticking w/ anything very long for the past 15 years . Soreness in feet, laziness - lack of 'getupandgo'
