On running: "I am 52 years old, in great shape (still wear a bikini), and hate running. I have been an avid snow skier my entire life, and I am so afraid of injuring my knees that I go out of my way to avoid running (even to catch a plane)."
What she does instead: "I walk everywhere—about three miles a day—as part of my normal routine. At least four days a week, I work out at a club." Nanci's typical gym session: 30 minutes of brisk (4.0 mph) walking on an incline (level 15 on the treadmill) followed by 3-4 circuits in the weight room (15-20 minutes) and a 15-minute abs workout on the floor.
"In the summer months, I swim two days a week—straight laps, alternating front and backstroke. On weekends I ski, hike, take a bike ride... anything fun that keeps me active."
