    Keep going,being fit is beneficial mentally as well as physically.I used to be super fit but several rugby injuries impacted badly on me.I've recently got back into exercise and already I can feel an all round improvement.

    Huh. Didn't expect a thread like this here but why not?
    We walk our dog 4-6 miles a day weather permitting. Like to track the distance with a pedometer app.
    Gym four times a week, generally weight training. Very physically active. Have to be to stay ahead of the growing list of s*** that's wearing out.

    I now understand some of the noises my grandfather made in a way I never did before .....

    Used to be a distance cyclist but gave it up after 25 years or so because of one too many close calls - keep your nose out of the #@!!%$ phone when driving!

    Curious what a Russian Twist is.
    Ran about a mile last night with the dog just to tire her out (nearly impossible) and my reward was having to jump out of bed howling leg cramps. As I remember from cycling water and a boatload of bananas helps with that

    Russian twist. (not good for you back if done improperly, or if you have an existing back condition)
