How much exercise do you do each week on average?

  1. Do you have targets?
  2. Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week?
  3. Do you find your have weeks where you plateau?
  4. Do you track your fitness on a website?
  5. Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise
  6. Are you training for a competition?
My Answers:
  1. I have the target to increase my amount of exercise every week - some weeks it's more than others, but it has always increased so far. I'd also like to feel myself getting stronger.
  2. Part 1 of answer 1 above
  3. This week is my first experience of "the plateau", and it's driving me crazy
  4. I use mapmyfitness, and log my exercise every day (whether walking, running or cycling)
  5. I try to drink a lot of water until about an hour beforehand
  6. No, but I keep wondering whether I might like to
In terms of significant noteworthy distances, I run 5 times a week, I cycle 9 times a week, and I walk 6 times a week.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

1. Long term, there is a particular mountain outside my window that someday I'd like to walk up. I can tell you already though that it's not going to happen this summer, let alone this week.

Medium term, my goal every summer is to do whatever walk nearly killed me last summer, and have it not nearly kill me the second time round. I figure as long as I do that I'll be getting a little fitter every year, and The Mountain will eventually become a realistic possibility.

2. Nope. Or rather, yes but that's just a seasonal thing. I walk because I like looking at scenery, and the scenery this time of year is particularly gorgeous so I'm particularly tempted to drop the housework, get out there and do it. To me the exercise is pretty incidental.

3. Not really, but then see #2.

4. No, absolutely not. I weigh myself every month or so and that's the extent of my fitness monitoring. I do however repeat the same walks occasionally (see #1) and when I do, I perform a thoroughly unscientific estimate of whether they're getting easier or harder.

5. I make sure to eat something for breakfast if I'm going on a longish walk (say over two hours). Shorter walks, no, nothing special.

6. No, and can't really see myself doing so in the future either. Some people do enjoy it and more power to them!

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

  1. Do you have targets? YES - are they sane? NO.
  2. Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week? YES - until last weekend - where due to travel it was reduced to less but daily. And then I got a cold
  3. Do you find your have weeks where you plateau? YES - this is normal. Some weeks performance decreases. When this happens I take a few days off - relax - tell myself it doesn't really matter - and come back fresh again.
  4. Do you track your fitness on a website? NO
  5. Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise SOMETIMES. If i am running home I will have a health bar - oats and palm sugar type thing - gives me around 250calories - good for approx 3km of running. I run 22km.
  6. Are you training for a competition? YES - an ultra marathon in 3.5weeks. For which I will be jet-lagged. And hence the 57km last long training run this weekend.
Once this race is out of the way I will roll back into "gentle" training - not targetting anything specific until I know future work commitments.

I am pretty fit for a fat bloke.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

I am a sports junkie, so my "fitness" revolves almost entirely around sports.

1. my targets are to always be improving and avoiding serious injuries. the latter target is harder and harder to achieve with age.

2. I try to increase the intensity whenever possible, but not necessarily the amount.

3. at my age, I worry less about plateau and much more about fighting off decline.

4. no websites for me, other than perhaps youtube searches for new drills, etc.

5. I try to eat about 60 minutes before serious exercise, and always include a banana.

6. competition is the only thing that keeps me focused, although I care much less about winning or losing than I did 15 years ago and focus almost entirely on the fun side of competing.

Wow. 57km is a lot of running. I have so many questions about your post! Did you stop much? How long is the ultramarathon you are competing in, and where is it? Do you know the course well? How many days a week do you run on average? Is this 1 of many extreme competitions you will compete in?

In researching what an ultramarathon is, I just discovered the 24-hr race. Sounds brutal. People who compete in these things are amazing.

Do you have targets? Distance, for most parts, and it is not so much, a few kilometers of walk every day, a few kms running around a lake or on eliptical, weight training

Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week? When I focus on exercise, I would up ever few weeks

Do you find your have weeks where you plateau? I don't really observe my performance that much, it is more important how well I feel after it, and the next morning, I am more interested into involving different groups of muscles, in a balanced way

Do you track your fitness on a website? Nope, but I download routines online

Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise Water, nut bars, bananas, when I remember

Are you training for a competition? No, competition does not really interest me
I don't do sport for competition, but there are non fitness things I like to compete in, target shooting, golf, pool, chess, etc.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

Do you have targets?
Yes, to get back into the shape I was in 2 years ago

Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week?
Trying to stick to 5 days a week, which I don't always get in, and also increase running distances/time, amount lifted, intensity levels, etc. 2 days each week I cycle to CrossFit, and am trying to run 3 days a week as well. Also just started doing morning yoga, which I really only have time for 15 minutes but feels great.

Do you find your have weeks where you plateau?
Weight loss wise am in one now... Motivation wise can definitely happen as well.

Do you track your fitness on a website?
Sometimes on JillianMicheals.com,sometimes in myfitnesspal

Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise
Aim for 6 grams of protein before and 6 grams protein after any strength training

Are you training for a competition?
I'm not necessarily competitive but doing Bern Grand Prix next weekend, followed by the Dreilandlauf here in Basel at the end of May. Current ultimate goal is to be able to complete the Crossfit Open workouts in 2014.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

Do you have targets?

A half marathon would be nice. Last year i would walk every day nearly 10Km, swimming, yoga & visit a personal trainer a couple times a week (I got married last year )

That’s when i first decided to try running. I was useless!! I would have to run for 30 seconds and then walk for 10- 20 seconds and build myself that way. I was so surprised as I thought myself to be quite fit!?

The best thing about it though, was that I quickly noticed the improvements. It didn’t take long until I could run for 2 minutes and walk for 10 - 20 seconds.

Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week?

I took the winter months "off" and only started running again in the last 2 months. I quickly went from running 5 - 10Km but I constantly watch my time. At first I ran 5km in 34 minutes so the goal was to get it under 5 minutes. Now I aim for 10Km under 60 minutes but it kills me. I need to chill out and slow down then i know I would be able to go further for longer!

Do you find your have weeks where you plateau?

My motivation definitely disappears now and again but the gym is about 1minute stroll from my house so I still go there even when I really dont want to. Always feel great after

Do you track your fitness on a website?

I didn’t before but on another thread I found "my fitness pal" so I thought I would give it a go. It’s not too bad. My biggest issue is all the junk I eat so its good to see the calories.

I track my running / gym/ food consumption. But it doesnt take away any calories for sit ups which drives me mad lol.

Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise

No & I should pay more attention

Are you training for a competition?

No but I want to . . . . Might try the 3 countries one. Its 10K but I think its too soon for me!

mostly basketball and lacrosse, I try to get some manner of exercise 6x a week - at least 2x a week with sports (formal trainings or pick-up), 2x a week with weights (about 30 minutes) and 2x a week with either jogging (I aim for 5 miles at a relatively easy pace) or sports-related drills (90 minutes). in my dream world I would be able to spend 90 minutes a day / 4x a week simply playing sports, but I am far too old these days and my legs can no longer tolerate the pounding.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

  1. After injuring myself last year, my only real target now is to build back up to previous levels. Then I will look for specific targets.
  2. Yes, gradually
  3. Sure, if I've worked too long hours or had a cold it definitely affects me. Also, if I've had a few drinks the night before my aerobic ability is significantly affected.
  4. Sometimes. I quite like to record cycling routes so I can see where I've been in case I want to do the same route again.
  5. If I'm hungry, yes. Basically, I wouldn't get far with an empty stomach so if I already feel hungry I know I need to fuel up.
  6. No.

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

  1. Yes, but they change over time. I started out by going to the gym 2-3 times per week, just wanting to increase my strength and general fitness. Then my priorities changed and I took up running. Short-medium term aim being taking part in one or more 10k runs this year. Long term, a marathon.
  2. Yes, because I had a winter layoff. I didn't want to risk breaking anything on the ice that was all over the place for so long.
  3. Yes, of course. More when I was going to the gym and the results were easy to measure because it was always obvious if I could add another 5 kg or whatever to what I'd lifted the previous week.
  4. runkeeper.com
  5. No, but afterwards I do. If I'm out and about when I finish I'll grab something (preferably a fruit smoothie or something similar). If I happen to end up back home immediately then it'll be half a litre of milk.
  6. My runs, and the gym visits previously, are/were always a competition, if only with myself.
By the way Spellbound, and it's just my opinion, you may be doing too much. Your body needs rest/recovery time as well as exercise in order to improve.

Oh, hey Spellbound - what do you mean by "plateauing"? For me that means not seeing improvements over the previous week/month whatever. Others seem to have taken it to mean something different.

No.

I don't do "exercise". I ski a lot, of course, although that's coming to an end for the next four months now, and I've been cycling to work (25km each way) occasionally, which is good, and the feeling of being fit enough to be able to do it is rewarding, of course. (The motivation to start so early in the year, back in March, was perhaps helped by the temporary lack of a driving licence).

I've said before that the trouble with doing 'exercise' like going to the gym, or jogging, or whatever, several times a week, and an eating and life pattern that relies on this to remain 'healthy' is that it's basically unsustainable. A slight injury that stops this, or a life change that makes it temporarily impracticable, and suddenly the whole edifice of fitness is falling down around you. This is particularly true of those who end up eating more to maintain their ability to perform the exercise regime.


Better by far, in my view, to adapt your lifestyle to doing things in a way that helps keep you fit, like adopting pastimes that involve exercise, but whose primary rationale is purely functional, e.g. cycling to work, and ensure that your diet is such that you don't need special exercise sessions to burn up the extra calories.

Yeah, but you could still get injured cycling to work or your bike could get nicked!

Re: How much exercise do you do each week on average?

Do you have targets?

Sometimes I run a marathon or other event so may do longer/faster runs for a few weeks before that.
But my main target is to be fit enough to enjoy the runs especially the long ones where I take a map, a drink, some food and go off and explore for a few hours. I don't see it as "training" but just fun -especially early in the morning when it's quiet and you get to see deer and foxes etc.

Are you increasing your amount of exercise per week?

Yes and no. I tend to increase it over a month or so and then cut it back and start again but this is not normally planned but due to other commitments.

Do you find your have weeks where you plateau?

Yes but I either cut back or do something different which usually sorts this out.

Do you track your fitness on a website?

No, but I do log my times/distances on a spreadsheet. I figure it's one of those things that if I didn't do it, I may wish I had in a few years.

I suppose it's quite nice to know that 'm fitter, rather than less fit than I was five years ago.

Do you eat or drink anything special before a period of exercise

I do my long runs in the morning at the weekend and I have one or two bananas (depending on the duration of the run) just before setting off (i.e. just after I have woken up) and if it's more than a couple of hours, I'll have an espresso too (because I like coffee).

Are you training for a competition?

Not at the moment but having a competition in mind is good motivation.

1. Yes, I'd like to be able to get into my size 52 leathers (currently wear 54).

2. Depends on the weather and how much other stuff I have to do.

3. See number 2.

4. No

5. Beer

6. No.

I walk a minimum of two miles a day (1/2 mile to work, 4x/day). If I've got nothing going on over lunch (usually wrenching on my bikes), I can add another 4 or 5 km to my walk.

Tom

We're not all like that.

I'm well aware that you really don't burn that many calories when exercising and what I eat has got nothing to do with how much I exercise.

So if I don't exercise for a couple of weeks, there's no reason why I should put on weight - and I don't.

And, for me at least, running is actually fun. Actually running outside is fun. Running on a treadmill is not fun at all.

And, for me at least, running is actually fun. Actually running outside is fun. Running on a treadmill is not fun at all.
I agree, I run on a treadmill in the gym and it faces a wall.

The first few Km are hard (just because I am facing a wall and the most interesting thing to see it the clock ticking. Quite annoying really) but after a while my mind drifts off and its alot easier.
