Thank you DEBB520, I appreciate it!

Yes, I drink a lot of water and it is very hot and humid now during monsoon season.

I start with my jog at 4:45am each morning and am usually finished with my last dog walk around 8am.

Thanks again!

Just a couple of observations .. when are you doing the outdoor activities? I know it's quite hot there.

Are you drinking enough water?

I would check with your doctor re your routine and how you're feeling.
These are of course just suggestions ... I'm not a doctor emoticon

Sounds like your body is telling you it needs a little bit of a break. If you still want to be active daily, you can always cut the length of time that you are doing each activity.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to interact with you!

My name is Rick and Im 63 years old. I think Im pretty active for my age. Here is a normal day for me:

Jog 2.25 miles (I take Sundays off)
Walk a lot of dogs! (total steps per day including my jog is about 16k-20k)
I do about 20 minutes per day on the Total Gym

Lately, especially with the summer heat here in Phoenix, AZ, Ive noticed that Im feeling like Im over doing it. My body is telling me that my normal day activity wise is a bit much.

I was thinking about reducing my exercise to the following:

Run 2.25 miles 4 days/week
Total Gym (20 minute sessions) 4 days/week
Dog walking cut down from 7 days per week to 6 days/week

Do you think this is a good idea or am I going about this wrong? I don't really feel old for my age, but I think sometimes Im trying to be 20-30 years younger and bite off more than I can chew!

If you wouldn't mind Id love to hear your thoughts and I appreciate your time very much.

best to you all,

Rick
