When I'm home from college I dance like 2 to 3 times a week and while at college I try to swim or do the NYC Ballet workout or Jean Butler's new Masterclass video, but I've been kinda bad lately.

I always used to just walk, then last year I started marching in place with Sousa marches and little hand and ankle weights. Dorky, I know.

But lately I've been spouting blue state material in front of red state constituents and then running like hell. tongue.gif The endorphin high is amazing -- they make very persistent and devoted trainers. smile.gif

In other words you've been hanging out in the Politics forum tongue.gif .

How have Brothers Shamalama and MacEoghainn been doing?

I used to post there quite often. Then I decided to lower my blood pressure.

Ceilidh dancing 2-3 times a week and then keeping pace with my soon to be 4 year old is about all I get in. Some days I try and start with pushups and some ab curls but that is usually dependent on how late I'm running. I'd love to play rugby or ride my bike like I used to, dancing get the calves nice and worked out but I'd love to have my thighs from back then.
I will vouch for the water though---cut pop out for high school atheletics back in 90 and haven't touched it since. Now I see just how many empty calories my brothers, buddies and coworkers put into themselves and the difference on waistlines.

Hi Ya!!!

I am so happy to see all of you here.. I apologize it has taken me taken me so long to get back to this thread.. I am glad everyone is exercising! YES!

Amy- I take it you like to ride a bike? You and Mike should hook up- make sure he doesn't wreck ya!!! Just kidding Mike..Amy I do hope you get to do this with your kids- let us know..

Sekmet- you will let us know when the baby is born won't you? This dance is wonderful- it all will go great!

CC & Eventide-Tai Chi is much harder than it appears. It is a great martial art for anyone. I have slacked off for the summer and I can tell. It keeps your muscles and joints stretched out- your balance becomes unbelievable. It works on every muscle in your body. I remember when I first started it was my thighs that killed me. It isn't like Tae Kwan Do which is a lot of kicking- this is more forms over a 1000 I believe. The breathing that you are taught is great to use during stress and incase of attack. You learn self defense. You also learn a lot of blocking and strikes. You also have the discipline..

Eventide- I did kickboxing and I will say that was a heck of a work out! I continued it for only about 3 months as the class was so crowded..If you can do that you can do anything.. Sounds like you are doing great I have heard so much about Pilates but never tried it a killer huh? I do agree with you on the discipline that is part of the mental trainning, that has got to be there for the martial arts. I hope to start class back up soon.

Catlynelizabeth, its good to see you.. I've always wanted to take ballet just never had the opportunity too. I havent' been very good either! Need to get back into the frame of mind..

Stoirmeil, thats great that you used to walk and march and use weights.. Do you remember how that made you feel? I hope you decide to do that again.. Remembering the feeling it gave you is most important..let me know if you start back...ok?

Mike- you keep up the great work you are doing I am very proud of you!! You are even walking too? Good Deal! Do you know how far your going on your bike now? Its wonderful....

Keltic- its great to see you my friend. What do you mean martial arts with weights? If I may ask?? Does that mean working with weights during the trainning or like circut trainning? I am glad to know you are still into it..

talleyrand- its wonderful to see you too. And I am so happy you are still dancing..Any competitions lately?

I have been treadmilling with weights that is about it..will get back into Tai Chi as soon as I can..
I am so proud of all of you!!! You are an inspiration.... thumbs_up.gif

BTW, I walked tonight instead of riding my bicycle. There's a BP gas station with a McDonald's attached not quite a mile from my house. I walked there, turned around and headed back.

Without biggrin.gif .

When I go out for exercise, I leave my wallet at home. I take my drivers' license and a spare key out of my wallet and put them in a pocket. No cash.

Good lad!

I have just given myself the next five days off work, and the storm tail has blown out the last of the mugginess, so I am planning to initiate the walk in the early mornings again this weekend. I do need it. That other political sprinting activity is a lot of huffing and puffing, but really, a good steady walk is much better for the heart and blood pressure (as Mike has already pointed out. smile.gif ) We have a lot of moderate, long hills in this part of town too, and that helps a lot.

Mike, so you will get mugged for no money??? Just teasing.. that is a good idea! Specially if you work up an appetite and have to walk by the golden arches..Are you on concrete the entire time then?? Nothing dirt?
A country bumpkin ya know...LOL

Stoirmeil, so you are walking! Good.. I grew up in a real hilly place that was a real bummer when you had to walk up the hill in a blizzard all the way home...now I sound like my grandmother..LOL

My neighborhood is up on a hill. The only way I cannot go back uphill on my return trip is if I head out south. North, east and west are all downhill heading out. I don't walk north because of the forest preserve. There are wild dogs that live in there (I've seen several of them) and a couple of years ago, one person was killed and her friend, who lives in my parish, was seriously injured by dogs in the woods.
