Do what I do, always take stairs (not elevators or escalators) and part further out from buildings so you have to walk more. :)

Well, 2 or 3 times a week, there is about a half hour of lugging heavy equipment, an hour of running cables and stacking stuff, 4 hours of standing, another hour rolling up cables and taking stuff down, then another half hour lugging it around again.  I'm not really sure how much good that does.  4 or 5 days a week, I don't do any of that stuff, hence the push-ups and the treadmill.  John

But you sound like you are running around all the time with the band and carrying instruments all over. I would think that was a lot of work!

I guess just walking isn't anything like climbing up and down.  Maybe I should forget the treadmill and just start climbing up and down my ladder!  Still, if it wasn't for that treadmill, I'd probably have roots!  John

I have noticed I get sore sometimes doing things I always took for granted, even sitting in funky positions where my knees are bent oddly (I am strange, what can I say). For me I believe it is more age now than weather, but who knows. :)

Well I was wrong about when it would get cold.  When I got up it was nice out.  Almost 60, (16C).  About an hour later it had dropped 20 degrees to about 4C, and it kept dropping all day.  I just have leather and cloth gloves but I don't think I shoveled long enough at one time to hurt anything.  Shoveling the roof though, a lot of the snow got down into my gloves.  What surprised me there though, was getting a little sore from climbing up and down the ladder over and over.  As much as I walk, I wasn't expecting that!  John
