I had plans of doing a lot more this weekend (another run, yoga), but had other commitments taking up time and I had to leave things off the to-do list to allow for my requirement of time doing nothing. I felt like I was totally slacking off, then saw on my daily mile totals that I exercised for 7.5 hours! I think training for a marathon (or even half, really) or a triathlon really skews one's concept of normal activity levels. Averaging a solid hour per day is really quite enough! It's plenty for general healthy and reasonable even for maintaining weight loss.
