You may recall a couple of weeks ago that I started helping a PhD student with her research. I was given an actiwatch to measure my activity and every evening I had a diary to fill in about my food and exercise for the day, plus intentions for the next day.
The actiwatch measured activity as follows:
Overall, I expected, going on the above, to be mostly in the sedentary range with the odd bit of vigorous for the digging I’ve been doing on the allotment. However, my activity profile said something completely different.
Sadly, the ‘vigorous’ digging turns out to be moderate activity. Never mind, at least it is not sedentary behaviour. And this is somewhat mitigated by the fact that driving my car was also classed as moderate activity. Better not tell that to the global warming sceptics 😉
