    Biking did it for me. :)

    I'm still a shit runner but after this summer where I did lots of biking I returned to the gym and have never been better on the treadmill! :thumb:

    Plus it's fun and can be done the whole year round!

    Swim - Supports your body weight and is a good all round exercise.

    Anywhere you can fit more walking in to your day do it and up your pace a bit. It's a great way to get a bit fitter and build up your stamina without having to do a massive workout. I've taken to getting off the bus a few stops early on my way home and walking the rest :)

    Yeah i walk loads now. 30 mins walk to and from work each day. Just think when you go out, could you quite easily save abit of money and just walk to wherever your going.
