Admittedly I'm quite willing to walk to places and not wholly because I don't mind walking, but because I hate looking for parking. And there are very few places that don't require you to drive around looking for a space that you can squeeze a car into. But I don't consider that exercise - if there's no pumping heart rate and a trickle of sweat then I figure it can't be that effective.
So I've decided to add some exercise to my life - that doesn't involve running on a treadmill to nowhere whilst staring at your red, flustered face in the huge mirror that indiscrimately faces all gym treadmills. Last spring my colleagues and I went to 'play' tennis a couple of times which I really enjoy. I played a bit whilst at school and had gone to one term of coaching when I was younger so I know the basics. The club where we went organize group sessions and they have a new group beginning in October which should be perfect, weather-wise and time-wise. The plan is to attend twice a week; now I'm just waiting for an email with the prices.
I think this is probably one of the best ways to inject some exercise into my life - through a sport that I enjoy. It will definitely be something to look forward to.
