    I care for no AV's.
    30 minutes after every gym workout is normal for me. Now that the warm weather is coming, I'll be Mtn biking 2-3 times a week.

    I still can't keep up with the mtn bike crew :(

    7 days a week

    I usually do 15 minutes after workouts. I stay on 3.2 mph and go from a 1 incline all the way to 15.

    If I don't do cardio in the gym my gf and I go walking on the golf course in my back yard. It's a mile and a half with a decent amount of hills and slopes.

    Riding the stationary bike 5-7 times a week right now. When spring gets here I'll be back to biking on the dirt river bottom trails 5+ days a week instead.

    Change it up between treadmill and precor elliptical. Sometimes throw in jump rope. 3 days per week is just for conditioning and cardio.
    Though I usually also include low intensity cardio at the end of most weight days.

    3 days a week, switch it up between running steady 2 miles on treadmill and 15 mins of HIIT on eliptical

    depends on what i'm feeling that day/week

    It's lots of fun. National Wildlife Reserve is about a mile from my place so I bike over there and hit the dirt trails. Make the trip down the trail and back to my place and it's just a touch over 10 miles. You can continue on the trail and it goes down to singletrack and goes like 60 some miles south if you really want. Even has a river that you cross on a raft that you pull across with a rope. The local mountain bike enthusiasts put a lot of work into it. Really sucks that the city is now saying they wanna spend $200k to make a paved trail. Really stupid because it's in at the Minnesota River bed and floods almost every year (will wash out the paved road and leaves a foot or two of sand everywhere). Can't wait for a little more snow to melt and go hit the trails. I bike up the stairs at the end which is the equivalent of a 17 story building climb in just a matter of a couple hundred feet. Really gets your heart going.
