    That may be true, but many guys want to be in better shape than the bare minimum required to have a long life.

    I just started running again and my bare minimum is 15min. When I'm fully into it I'll usually run/jog/powerwalk over a course of maybe 5-7mi. The trick is not getting mugged/beat up in my 'hood, lol.

    its so ass-backward stupid down here. five years ago my tax dollars went to repaving and in several cases PAVING exercise paths in our parish's (county's) public parks and then they went and PROHIBITED roller skating. I got thrown out by the cops AND now i have to drive to the nearest park in next parish (county) which is a 15min drive. Complained to the proper channels in my parish and they actually told me to go to the next county. WTF??

    For the past month, I've included 25 min cardio into my routine, twice a week. I also do it before I do weights (in the past I did it after). I have to say, it's been awesome. I've also managed to reduce my resting heart rate to avg about 52 bpm.

    Time to move out of Louisiana my friend. Why is New Orleans and all its neighboring suburbs so opposed to people running and doing cardio exercise on public rights of wayicon_question.gif No wonder that metro area is sinking further below the water line, all those fat slobs putting pressure on the sandy, silty, swampy soils underneath the metropolitan area. Tell your public officials to get with the program.

    No one even has to tell me, I can tell from the headline alone that it's more NY Times filler.

    Time for you to get your news from other major city dailies like the Washington Post or the Chicago Tribune so you don't irritate some of the anti- New York Times group on here. How about getting news from the Seattle paper and putting it on here.

    I usually jog run around 45 minutes about until I sprained my ankle a couple Sundays ago. Weights have been easier though, got to increase my weight. I obviously it took a lot of me running but it makes me trim my legs thin and toned which I like.

    Running 5 minutes a day is healthier than not running, unless you're running on the interstate.

    I am going to start up a running routine very soon. My left ankle has had more than sufficient time to recover from a bad sprain that I got on Feb. 28th. Bicycling alone is just not enough for me. I need to run.
