I've been running more, too. I did almost 10k the other day, which is the longest run I've done in ages. My standard run is about 7.5K but includes a crazy hill.
Good for you with the running too. Are you still going to the gym?
For various reasons I haven't done any exercise apart from walking the dogs this past week. Need to get back into the cycling, swimming and hilly walks again. Running is unfortunately not an option for me - dodgy knee and my specialist told me NO RUNNING after I started some and caused all sorts of discomfort and problems with my knee.
Have you been to the gym yet @fat_teacher?
Good luck getting back to exercising!
As I have mentioned elsewhere, your exercise program sounds fabulous, and is much more than most do. The range of activities is marvelous too, it means you are exercising your body in the variety of ways it needs. I do a lot of aerobic exercise, but not enough strength work, and not sure how I "can" improve the latter. I don't like paying for my exercise (!!) or traveling far to do the exercise but don't have enough motivation to do the strength exercises at home...
What sort of dogs do you have? As my avatar shows, I have 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I walk them for almost an hour every day, up and down the local hills, which they are not very keen on! Although they generally want to go out, they are glad to be home - and at the moment they are very happy sleeping in the bed where I am.... It's a bit cool out, but we will get moving soon.
Keep having fun with your exercise!
Last night I had to bribe myself: I allowed myself a small split of wine (1/4 bottle - 6 oz) if I completed the two mile walk after dinner, which got me to 10k. I suppose that's better than only getting 5k steps in.

I was never sure how accurate it was as a measure - I wore 2 different pedometers at the same time and they varied by nearly 4,000 steps at the end of the day. How are you measuring yours? I have been looking at fitbits and other similar things but I'm not sure if they would help. I don't wear a watch and am not sure I want to start wearing one again. I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on them.
I use a fitbit One and it clips to my bra. Aside from being cheaper, I think it is more accurate. They say that the ones you wear on your body are more accurate than the bracelets. It also counts stairs climbed I hate having things on my wrists!!
Meanwhile, other than a jog a week, my other exercising has fallen by the way side. I should at least be hitting the weights 2-3 times a week...
I am back into my usual exercise routine, but do still need to do some more strength work. @Esta, I think you mentioned some YouTube (?) clips you think are good? Could you please give me the link - ta.
