Right now...

5km run 4-5 days a week (treadmill)

40 situps, 40 pushups daily

daily weights - 30 benchpresses (about 40 kilos, yeah im weak), 20 dumbells each arm, just started doing leg weights.

Pretty boring, but I make sure I'm listening to music prettymuch throughout...

I do a 10km run every morning, swim about 30 laps or so as often as I can, usually daily. Kick boxing 3-4 times a week depending on my aerobics schedule. I try and do a mini marathon on weekends, about 20-30km's...oh and I usually do lifts daily, probably about 5 glasses of water? A few diet soft drinks when the water tastes too boring, I do sit ups on my recliner when I put it up to the sit position (at least 10 of these in the evening), I walk to the printer at least 5 times a day, walk to my car from the office, gear changes for my lower calf workout when I am driving, more so in heavy traffic, thats about it.

Next year I plan on finally using the mini tramp I got last christmas and I am contemplating buying an exercise bike.

The latter of course being the more realistic representation of my workout schedule, but I do plan on changing it as I am very unfit I think.

I prefer the "sit on the couch and drink beer" method of staying fit.

I used to work out 6 hours a day but I'm very much loving retirement. When I get back into it I will probably swim a couple of hours a day. Its the best thing for you really....full body workout, great cardio effects and its quite hard to get injured while in the water.

I usually do running M-F in the morning and weight training Mon, Wed, and Fri after the run but I felt off the wagon a few months ago.

As of right now I am just doing some Mountain biking when I can which has been really fun and way more of a work out than I expected *feels legs for soreness of Saturdays ride*. It is funny that you mention this thread today because I was going to go to the gym starting tomorrow after work.

Me too! I try to work out a couple times a week, but with school and everything it's usually more like once a week. I guess it's better than nothing. I'm also in a hip hop dance class twice a week, so I get some exercise from that too.

I run until I get bored. Sometimes it's only a mile but sometimes it's more. I run outside, I get bored too quickly on a treadmil. I totally fell off the wagon last week. I didn't run once! Over the summer when I'm not in school I run every day. Now I try to get out there 3 times a week. My disipline seems to disappear during the school year....
