I exercise nearly every day - it's very rare that I take a day off, but I do have frequent "gentle" days. 3-4 days a week I jog anywhere from 2.75 to 4 miles. I also do cardio/sculpting exercise CDs once or twice a week. I try to get to the gym and lift weights (30 mins, not strenuous) 2-3 x/week and I do yoga for about 2-3 hours per week. I'm trying to cut back on the jogging and put some time in on the ellipitcal machine, but I find it boring. Alas, my hip joints are starting to complain about the jogging.
Anyway, none of what I do is particularly athletic. I work out of my house, so my schedule is flexible enough to allow me to exercise as much as I want. But I don't work-out hard. I'm really just trying to stave off old age and disease. But truthfully, I've been exercising regularly for over 20 years, and I'm in much better shape than most of my friends. Exercise and my vegan diet have really made a difference in the aging process, I do believe!
