I just reached a new goal in my running and trying to run a 5k with no walking. I was just able run 8 min walk 5 run 8. Its not huge, but man does it feel good to finally make it after missing that goal 2 days in a  row.

I know there are other devs out there keeping fit. I want to hear what you all or doing any share in the excitement of any milestones you reach.

Share away!

Very nice guys I know I couldn't do 80 crunches!

kinda wanna get a treadmill desk too!
I just recently upgraded to a vari-desk. It allows me to alternate between a raised standing position and down sitting position. So I try and stand as much as I can throughout my work day but I find after an few hours I really start to feel it.

I'm doing a couch to 5K program, I'm up to 3.5k.  I'm trying to exercise at least 6 days a week too, including weights, yoga and mountain biking.  So far so good.  I hurt all freaking over though.

A treadmill desk would be awesome, I didn't know they made one!

I started working out a little, about 30 mins a day. I generally feel awful and it seems to help. I do pushups at ridiculous hours, sometimes follow it with sit ups. I lost a ton of weight for no reason and now I'm like 48kg, need to gain some muscle mass.

Treadmill desk would be so neat.

Being fit feels great. I feel like I concentrate better and think faster when my body is fit. I do swimming a few times a week. (It's a great source of exercise, because it trains your whole body, but it takes a while, so I wouldn't recommend it for people who don't have time.

I do pushups every day, and usually crunches. I don't calorie count but try to stay in keto, so very low daily carb intake.

I've been slowly taking up swimming during the autumn / winter season, once a week or so. I casually biked quite a lot this summer too, one or two 20+ km trips per week. I do pushups whenever I remember about them. I also like to ride on the elliptical trainer bike thing once a week maybe.

I like swimming the most I think. It's hard to get up 7 in the morning and go straight to the pool but I feel really good after it. Then I get back home, eat and go to work. Luckily the pool's like half a kilometre away.

Every little bit counts.

Been going to the gym on and off (mostly off...) for the last 7 years or so. Currently working out twice a week, I want to finally benchpress 1.5x my weight.
Also started doing yoga once a week, my body is so stiff it's a wonder I can walk the stairs, so maybe I can finally change that.

During the summer I play a lot of football (soccer to my US amigos) During winter gym is my prefered route to keeping fit, by rowing and Xtrainer for cardio and weight lifting... And if Im in the mood for classes, I will do Kettle bell training or Cross Fit circuits...

But.... I'm a big guy who's a bit overweight and loves drinking beer and socialising soooo i mean Im fit and can probably run further than most people I know (maybe slower but endurance aint a problem) I need to sort my diet and lower my socialising calories a bit for any of this to make more than a cursory impact on my wellbeing :| and thats the harder part for me......

In 5 weeks time though I will be indie and be able to go to the gym at any time during the day, rather than after work and commute, so get to gym at like 8pm which is difficult to motivate for.. We shall see, Ideally I want to lose like 15-20kg (45lbs) in the next 6=-8 months... I have a feeling going indie and having to budget my money more tightly will automatically take care of the ammount I drink Tongue

Great to see everyone staying active.

Like most of you I have noticed since I started running that it does help with my game dev be it just because Im in a better mood or because my mind is clear. Either way I like the feeling.

@knifeySpoonie - Congrats on taking the plunge and going indie. I love my beer too and hope for your sake you dont have to back off them to much Tongue

I am also trying to get more exercise these days.  I think that because I sit at my desk for so long each day it is really taking its toll.  My girlfriend and I are walking the dog in the morning together for about 30-45min every other weekday.  I also decided to get a bike and use that to get to work.  Biking into work is about 35-40min each way.  Because I live in SF I hit some bigger hills on my way home.  I am lucky that the hills are worse on my way home so that I can shower.
Though it pains me to say it, I think the thing that makes me feel the best is when I stretch more.  I say this only because I am quite tall and even more inflexible.  I have been working on stretching more for about the past 3 months and I still can't touch my toes.
I am also talking to my boss at work trying to get myself a standing desk.  I think that will help a lot =]

i'm actually a bit underweight, but i do attempt to stay healthy by walking a lot and doing pushups,situps, and even pullups.

i used to go to the gym but i found myself getting lazier and lazier to the point where i stopped going completely

I play sports, and otherwise walk often or run. Much easier to stick with, and more entertaining, than the gym and home routines. The odd time I'll throw in pushups and squats to get more resistance exercise, but that's it.

I'm a little chunky. I'm gonna start a little regiment soon. Maybe I'll just do sit-ups.
