Here is a summary of my physical activity for the last six months. I am proudest of doing some kind of daily exercise for 5-15 minutes every day, usually at night. Sometimes I gut out push ups, crunches or lift weights after midnight, even 2 am. And this is in addition to all the sports activities. As of yesterday, it has been 115 consecutive days, an extraordinary and first-time achievement for an undisciplined guy like me.

The longest day of activity was six hours of exhausting hunting on the difficult-to-walk Scottish moors and hills. Next longest was one day in December of continuous tennis for 4 1/4 hours and then driving to a fronton for 3/4 hour of jai alai.

My record for doing major physical activity in a month was 25 days in November 2009. Beginning this past September, I was active the following number of days per month (and I AM counting just push ups or some crunches): 22, 19, 26, 31, 31, 29.

My record number of tennis-playing days is 18 in June 2010. Recent results are: 13, 11, 8, 11, 9, 14.
My record for playing tennis in a month is 42.75 hours. I just did: 30, 24.5, 18, 27.75, 22.5, 36.
I only played squash in January and February: 5 times (5.25 hrs), and 4 (3.5)
I only went skiing in January: 4 times for 7.75 hrs.
In October I went cross-country skiing (1 hr) and shoveled snow (2 hrs).
I went hunting in September, October and December: 1 time (6 hrs), 2 (8), and 1 (2).
I stocked pheasants once in December.
I went skeet shooting once in September.
I went fishing once in September for six hrs.
I completed two huge swimming laps in North America’s largest pool.
I played jai alai twice, in October (1 hr) and December (3/4).
I went to a gym in September and October, one time each month. Also did weights and machines three times in a friend’s home gym in January during a ski trip.
I did exercises at home. Push ups were done as follows: 3 times, 4, 11, 14, 7, 5. When I reached a record of 202 in late January (48 continuous plus 27 sets—mostly 5 each time—over 18 minutes), I pulled back. This was a big improvement from the total of 55 in one session over the previous six months. There is a six-week system for reaching 100 non-stop that I have tackled, but can’t get past the third day of the third week.
Bicycle crunches for abs were done over the six months too: 3, 0, 11, 13, 9, 3. My max in late February was 350 non-stop, but was only able to touch both elbows to both knees 220 times.
I have two recorded abs routines, a DVD and a tape. I did these as follows: 2, 0, 0, 0, 5, 7. These are non-stop, quick-exhausting programs.
I did bent over rows for lats: 0, 0, 2, 4, 6, 4.
I started work on quads for skiing and squash bending by doing squats, lunges and wall sits: 0, 0, 0, 0, 4, 4. My longest wall sit was just 175 seconds, considerably less than the 360 seconds (6 minutes) I reached prior to my ski trip in 2011.
I also just started bent over barbell lifts to build lats: 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 4.
