Try to Fit Little Bits of Exercise In Whenever You Can – It All Adds Up!

Whenever I can, I try to do little bits of physical activity as often as I can throughout the day, even when I’m at work.

If the weather is nice, I take the opportunity to go walking. If I am on a coffee break (15 minutes), I take a brisk walk around the perimeter of my office building. If...

Fitting exercise into my routine

When I was working and trying to train for a century cycling event I would ride my bike to work. It was only 10 miles so I could get away without a shower. :) This wasn't much but it added up to 20 miles a day a few times a week, weather permitting. Then I could do longer rides on the weekend.

10 Minutes at a Time

I have always been a skeptic of the idea that 10 minutes of exercise at a time can be effective; I've always ascribed to the idea you have to do at least 30 minutes of cardio at once in order to see results.
