What are you doing for excercise/fitness?
on: October 05, 2022, 02:03:06 AM
Hi All,
It is hard to say it but most of us here will be getting on a bit now :)


Anyone still doing sports or trying to keep any fitness levels up or are you way past it?


I do not play any sports like Rugby any more but I go to the gym 4/5 times a week - Mainly body building style program. (Not the skinny boy some of you met back in the day).
With a baby and 2 boys and having to go early mornings before taking kids school and work it is hard but trying to keep it up. I feel if you stop your body will start to really wind down too fast. That and keeping te mind active, always trying to learn new things every week.

Extremely tired all the time. Baby with feeding, teething, bugs... Not slept a full night for ages! :(

Make sure you're not overdoing it, especially with the lack of sleep. You don't want to burn yourself out, everybody needs some downtime.

I don't exercise enough for sure, but an autistic 5 year old with no off switch is enough to run me ragged most days so I don't feel like I'm not getting any exercise at all at least. If there is room when we move house next year I might consider putting in a rowing machine somewhere as that's about the only convenient form of gym exercise I enjoy and its a full body workout pretty much. I don't like running particularly even on a treadmill and I'm not nuts enough to go out all seasons doing it.

the physical stuff I do at work keeps me pretty fit, but no real cardio stuff

went swimming at a spa last week with my gf and was better than I expected

I've been looking for a pool which is open late... used to be one that was open till 10pm but it closed down years ago :-(

A rowing machine does a lot with fitness and muscle growth so if you do get one and use it - You will notice a difference.
I feel you with the kid. 2 Boys just keep each other going non stop and now near 1 baby...


I think I am at the point where sleep and the lack there of is just a constant.

Even as a kid I remember more pools shutting down or to run down than opening. If that is still a thing in the UK that is sad.
There are 4 in 30 minute walk to my house 1 outdoor and 3 indoor. 1 of them brand spanking new facility.
Plus a 30 bus ride and I am on a beach.
