2 hours 7 minutes of cycling this morning - in an unfortunate amount of fog.

Also, 30 minutes walking to and from the supermarket.

Hence running total: 2 hours 37 minutes.

I can't believe I lazed yesterday away completely. But this morning I've been to the gym and slaved away for a total of

one hour

It's a bit disheartening to know that in that time I worked off fewer calories than a mince pie! But my aim's more to get fitter than thinner, so I will not be disheartened, even though my plan to walk into town this afternoon has been foiled by the clock and a Smudgelet!

Running total - 2 hours (but it feels like more [Smile] )

Off the mark today with a brisk afternoon walk in the country. Only 55 minutes but it's a start. Grand to see the sun for a couple of hours after lots of fog/cloud/frost.

Oh dear, a rather shameful 40 minutes of walking about for today and yesterday. It will improve, the gym classes start next week! Plus my flatmates appear to want to go running - I'll have to try and encourage them out tomorrow...

Another 30 minutes walking into town from a car park just outside, and then walking back again afterwards, making a running total of an hour and a half. At this rate, I stand a chance of beating my previous record!

Just back from an hour and a half at the gym working out with a personal trainer. (It was included in the free membership!) But was really only active for one hour of that time as we talked a bit at the start and at the end.

Running total: 3 hours

1 hour spent thrashing the Smudgelet at badminton. [Snigger]
Then a walk into town - we were there an hour and a half but I reckon that, subracting all the mooching around in various shops, I can justify about half an hour of swift walking.

That makes my total so far three hours, I reckon. (I think doing the maths is going to be more of a challenge than doing the exercise!)

Walked/jogged to work this morning. 45 minutes Running total 1 hour 35 minutes.

Extraordinarily sensuous experience. Black velvet sky setting off the frost in the trees and on the grass. The air redolent (goes off to check dictionary...) yep, redolent with Winter Box, Winter Honeysuckle, Viburnums various and Daphne mezereum - and that's only the ones I could recognize! Long sections of the route well-lit and even with the flaps of my helmet down I could hear robins twittering under the sodium lamps.

Started out thinking "this is something I must do" and finished with "I must do this again". Tomorrow's forecast is minus 5 or 6 centigrade
but it's a leter start, being Sunday. I wonder..

Was wondering about walking round the shops, so following Smudgie's example Walking round the shops for about 2 and a half hours, is worth about 1 hour and walk to town and back was 1 hour 30 mins, SO that's 2hours 30 mins today and a running total of 3 hours and 5 mins.

1 hour 35 minutes

Did my long walk. Thought of stoppig off for a coffee half way round, but I'd put myself on automatic pilot, so couldn't stop [Smile] I think it could count as a bit of weight-resistance training - I were my thick coat!

Added to my previous score, plus three-quarters of an hour walking yesterday, my score is now 4 3/4 hours.

I'm happy - I think I may be getting close to beating my record for the last fitness race (though I see I have a bit more to do before I match last January. Watch this space)!

One hour in the gym this afternoon (though I failed miserably on the rowing machine - never had to give up after 500 metres before!)

followed by

Forty minutes in the swimming pool churning up and down the lanes.

Brings me to four hours and forty minutes.

Pls count me in even if I'm starting with a two day handicap.

25 minutes on exercise bike just now in front of the telly, watching DVD of Series 1 of The Wire. Plus 5 mins stretching, but that's not aerobic so under the rules it doesn't count.

Plan is to increase the exercise-bike-in-front-of-the-telly time by 5 mins every two days aiming at an eventual 40 mins daily (including 5 mins warm up and 5 mins warm down each time. I wind the resistance up for the centre part). Heart rate monitor on the bike clipped to my ear, I keep my heart rate below 130/min max. Advised for my age. Am aiming to do this five times a week. Let's see.....

Sadly too icy for my bike group's Saturday ride today. I don't do ice! Would have added 4-5 hrs. Another time.

Running Total: 25 mins

Right, yesterday I clocked up 30 minutes walking to, around and from the shops during my lunch break and after work. In the evening I went ten-pin bowling with some friends, however with all the sitting around while it was other people's turns, I reckon that probably only comes out at 10 minutes of activity, but I'll count it anyway if I may. [Big Grin]

Today has been a very lazy day - didn't wake up til 10.30, and didn't get dressed til mid-afternoon. But I've done 10 minutes walking to and from the supermarket.

So I make it 2 hours 45 minutes so far.

Now that I'm back somewhere with a working computer... Been very idle so far this year, so all I can claim is 5 minutes on Jan 1 walking back from the pub at 3am, and 10 minutes on Jan 2 walking over to visit one of Sandemaniac's relations. Grand total so far of 15 minutes.

This will undoubtedly go up slightly more quickly from hereon - I need to head over for a parental birthday later today, and work starts again tomorrow. [Frown]

I've been a bit more active than the idle Knotweed, but then I don't have a cough that sounds like a dying hippo.

So... 5 mins staggering from pub (does that really count, given that I'd demolished most of the buffet and several glasses of falling-over-water?)
1hr hedging (ie bashing overgrown jungle into a hedge shape)
10 mins walking to and from said rellies
2hrs vigorous gardening
15 minutes walking (-7 at the time - that's pretty parky for the South-East of England)
10 minutes bell ringing, and five minutes each way to get there and back.

I make that 3hrs 50mins

Church today - which meant hauling 6 crates of Traidcraft stock down the stairs from the flat and towing it up to the church in two goes on a trolley, collecting tables from under tower and taking back when finished, then reverse haul of crates. That lot took 55 minutes.

I could possibly count the jumping and down to keep warm while manning said stall and jogging from foot to foot during every hymn, but I'm not sure how much time I actually spent aerobically moving.

Yesterday involved a 20 minute run, then about 40 minutes of walking. So that's 1 hour to add to my total.

Today, I'm currently still in my PJs, but hopefully when I eventually get dressed and leave the house there'll be more to add...

I've had a weekend of parties. [Smile] But most of them were some distance from public transport (and in one case I rode my bike) so I still have some time to clock up here, even if I haven't exactly done much to improve my fitness level.

I reckon I notched up about 50 min of walking in six trips over the two days. Most of it was fairly brisk and I had to run to catch one of my trains!

I also cycled for around 40 minutes to get to and from one party.

I think that brings my running total to 4 hr 50.

1 Hour 59 minutes on my bike today. (I'm pleased to have done this particular route in under 2 hours, hence the anal timings.)

I was going to go out and get some gardening done this afternoon, but I don't think I can force myself out into the cold again - it took me ages to warm up after cycling this morning.

Anyway, running total: 7 hours 29 minutes

I'm back at work tomorrow and may end up posting weekly rather than daily. Also, I won't have as much time for nice long bike rides.

Walked all the way to work and most of the way back. 1 Hr. 25 min. which I think makes 3 hours in all.

The wind has shifted subtly so that the winter jasmine has been replaced by a strong reminder that ponies are not only for Christmas. Pity the poor little Thelwellians who have to muck'em out at these temperatures!

1 Jan - totally idle, recovering from New Year
2 Jan - walk, river/canal bank, 1 hour 50 minutes
3 Jan - run (sort of) about 30 minutes
4 Jan - walk to church and back, longer walk river/canal bank, 3 hours total
running (ha!) total so far 5 hours 20 minutes
Blackbeard has been doing quite a lot of walking lately, mainly because running has been altogether too much like hard work in present state of unfitness. Also it goes quite well with current state of weather, cold (about freezing - canal is frozen over) and clear. (Comet can laugh.)

And 30 minutes yoga, which I suspect I am going to regret tomorrow.

45 minutes walking round the Lickey Hills with friends this afternoon (followed by a large Sunday roast in the pub, but that's probably not something I should admit to at this point). Running total = 3 hours 30 minutes.

30 mins of yoga and 30 mins on the home gym, thus adding another hour to my total!

30 minutes walking. I'm being quite pathetic at the moment. But the plan for tomorrow involves the gym...
