Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

Picking what to do?



 



Alright, so we are either fit enough for exercise or we have received clearance from our dr. and are ready to start.  So what should you do?  What do you like to do? This seems like such a simple question but it is not.  If you have never exercised this may be even tougher.  I bet for most of you the first thing that came to your mind was walking.  This is a great place to start.  So how much so I do.  There are many questions that come along with this.  How many days a week? How long?, how fast?, up hill? down hill? What is best?  To be honest with you, forget about those questions.  What you need to decide is you commitment level.

The Surgeon General suggests at least 150 minutes of moderate to intense exercise per week or 30 minutes per day for at least five days per week.  Can you commit to 5 days a week of 30 minutes?  That would be great but many of you can’t do that right off the bat and will need to slowly work into it.  If you are just starting I would suggest committing to 3 days a week of 30-60 minutes of walking.  Remember this is if you are just starting out.  What if I am already walking and I want more you ask?  Well tune into the next Blog and find out!
