We do not stop exercising because we grow old - we grow old because we stop exercising.

MEASURES FOR EXCERCISE
Running - I enjoy a solid 4-5 km run once a week. I prefer to run with slow pace, longer distance rather than speed. I enjoy running on a surface which is not consistent, thus challenges my stamina.
Walking – My target is 10,000+ steps a day, tracked using a mobile app. This is accomplished mostly by walking on trade-mills & open-tracks.
High-Intensity Circuit Training – This completely tailor-made high-intensity anaerobic workout comprising skipping, squats, walking lunges, step-ups followed by crunches within 10 mins.
Swimming – Swimming is fun, some swim for exercise, but I thoroughly enjoy myself splashing in the water. I never learned swimming through a professional coach, may that’s the reason why I enjoy every moment of it. I have swum in Olympic size pool with maximum 10-15 rounds non-stop. Swimming has helped me a lot to recover from intense back pains.
I aim to exercise four times a week, minimum (not too intense). My goals at the moment are more about opting varied training practices like TRX - Suspension Bands, BOSU Ball etc. so I track my exercise frequency using Beeminder.
