I beat people up.  That seems to be all the physical activity I need.

Always too far, Alan.  :D
I suspected as much. I bet the ash tray is a heavy one, too.

Exercises. What do you like? I take walks/jog and bike. Sometimes I swim. Now I want to work on upper body strength: push-ups, grippers for hand strength.

I like to take aerobics classes which involve dance--Jazzercise, Zumba, Hiphop. The music and choreography distract me from the actual exercising. I also like yoga, and have re-started the weight machines, which aren't fun but they don't take too long to do.

I do jogging 3-4 times per week, walking + I play some tennis. I also did ashtanga yoga which I liked a lot, but now I have problems doing it due to some back pains.

An early morning jog.  I am about to add a Wii Fit component to my work outs.  I will focus on the Yoga and the strengthening programs first.

For the past 15 years I've speed walked the three miles to work & three miles home five days a week. Nice countryside but soooo boring doing the same route every day so listening to opera really helps.

Must be doing some good as blood pressure/cholesterol levels are fine.

I don't run a car & the only time I'll consider getting the bus is if there's a thunder storm. Not frightened of storms (grew up in Africa) but I cross open fields & lightning would concern me.
