25 push ups well done ! If you do the 25 push ups for 3 days, then rest one day, I reckon the next day you will be able to do 26 push ups. I get good muscle exercise at work but the older I get the more important it is to get the heart rate up imo.

I used to run about 3 miles almost every day, but as the weather got really humid this summer, I slipped out of that. It's now getting nice and cool, so I should get back into that.

I just picked up swimming again recently and I swim about 2000 yards (I used to swim competitively and competed against Michael Phelps each year since I was 13--we're both originally from Baltimore).

My goal is to run 4 miles and swim 2 miles again.

Also I do 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, and 10 burpees every morning.

Today I surfed, walked the dog, did a few push-ups, played the guitar, and went for a bike ride. Of course, other than the push-ups, I don't consider any of that exercise, just life! That's also the reason I don't understand gyms.

I've heard that barefoot or minimalist footwear is better on the joints due to the naturally modified mechanics of the stride and foot strike. Then again, I stopped running when I stopped doing things to make the cops chase me.
I've heard that too. There has been far less tension on the joints when running barefoot.
