Officially, on the treadmill, 10/week. But I do a lot of old-fashioned walking (one foot in front of another) for the chores of daily life.

I run 3.4 kms every morning before work. That’s about 2.1 miles and around 10.5 a week.
I get bored, so I podcast while I run.

…and knit.

I probably bike about 50 miles a week and walk 6 miles, although this varies quite a bit due to my schedule.

I bike (well, spin) about 50 miles a week. I will start to swim again this week.

I don’t drive so I walk a lot. I wore a pedometer for a while and I was racking up about 3 miles a day on a normal day, up to 6 or 7 if I was being particularly active. That’s not time set aside for specific exercise, that’s just the walking I do in my daily routine.

Lately my car is getting in more miles than I am.
I’ll just leave it at that. Although I do spend a lot of time wandering around doing my outdoor chores, but, the formal exercise has fallen along the wayside lately. I WAS walking 3 miles a day with jogging and riding my horse, forever..but, shift happens. lol

Depends on the season for me (I’m more active when it gets cooler generally) and whether I’m training for an event. I’d log around 55 to 60 miles a week all-in when in training for a run – I’m including the miles I walk to and from work as well. I don’t swim but I scull/row and that probably adds another 10 in summer months

I swim 2 miles a week and bike 20. I still need to do more…Does rocking in a recliner count?? I think it should!

Only about 6–8 running.

Ranks right up there with extreme hot tubbing. When the extra fat in my butt heats up I try to massage it up to my breasts. lol

The number of miles that I jog/run a week varies greatly. If I’m injured I don’t jog at all but always do some kind of alternate training. But I generally log 20 to 50 miles per week and have been keeping a journal since 1983. The record shows that I’ve run/jogged an average of 2.54 miles for every day that I’ve been alive and I’ve been alive for 22088 days so far. Or I have run/jogged an equivalent to slightly over 2¼ times around the Earth at the equator. I actually started running consistently in 1979 but that is off the record.

@gondwanalon That’s a great idea! I wish I’d have thought of it when I was a teen or in my twenties. I’d have something to go back and compare my present day to. Nice motivator to challenge yourself by, too!

I recently ditched my treadmill for various reasons and started challenging myself with my recumbent bike. Now, I’m trying to up my daily mileage. I’ve always walked/jogged 1–5miles per day. Now I’m trying to bike at a minimum of 8 miles per day and average at 105 miles per week.

Thanks for your answers @all!

Biking to work is the best way to get in some exercise while saving some gas money!!

I bike to school and go about 20 miles a day, 4 days a week. So 80 miles.
