Professors in action!

Tuesday December 5, 2017

Professors must stay active to keep fit and release the stress of teaching and doing research. Their jobs do not provide much opportunity to maximize exercise and movement, so this week during exam season will provide a nice change of pace. A small group will join in a different exercise every day during the last week of the semester to finish off the calendar year on the right foot. The highlight of the week is a special triathlon on the Tuesday, in which they spent exercising for close to two hours covering over 15 km worth of distance!

  • 750 m front-stroke swim in 15 minutes
  • 10 km worth of cycling on stationary bikes in 20 minutes
  • 5 km treadmill run in 40 minutes
