that maneuver blocked the drive I was
attemptin to enter. Suddenly
realizin I was waitin, the fella
placed the biscuit of some kind he was
eatin in his mouth, turned to me and

I can only suppose he was
smilin behind that large hunk of bread

I suppose that some might

dont think the other driver was in this

How Much Exercise
Do Adults Need?
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What is the
amount of exercise recommended for a man or woman
of 55? I was always under the impression that 15
minutes of aerobic exercise three times a week
was a sufficient amount of time for heart health.
Am I wrong? -- R.K.
ANSWER: That used to be the
recommended amount of exercise time for an adult.
For readers, aerobic exercise is the kind of
exercise that is tailored for the heart.
Its exercise that employs the continuous
use of large muscles for a somewhat protracted
period of time, at least 10 minutes. Jogging,
biking, walking, swimming and dancing are
examples of aerobic exercise.
The latest advice for adults,
if their doctors say they are fit enough to
exercise, is to get 150 minutes of
moderate-intensity aerobic exercise a week.
Thats 20 minutes of exercise seven days a
week or 50 minutes, three times a week. You can
divide it any way you wish, but the minimum
amount of one session of exercise has to be 10
minutes. If you are a novice, take your time to
reach 10 minutes. A single session can be longer
if you choose.
Moderate-intensity exercise is
walking at a pace of 3.5 miles an hour, a brisk
Or if you want to devote less
time to exercise, you can if you make it vigorous
exercise. Vigorous exercise for 75 minutes a week
fulfills the requirement for heart health.
If youre up to it and if
you want even greater results, double those times
-- 300 minutes of moderate exercise a week or 150
minutes of vigorous exercise a week. I want to
issue the warning again. Get doctor approval for
any of this. Strength-training exercise --
weightlifting -- also is strongly recommended for
all adults regardless of age.
