Tom - Hmmm. Interesting. I guess 5 times a week doesn't feel like an excessive amount considering the community I'm working out with, ie CrossFitters. (The one or two more sessions are just extended skill work, not necessarily a lot of intensity.) When I look around at my companions, I don't feel out of place with my volume of work. But maybe that's not the best way to assess things.

I workout because I love it, it makes me feel happy, I feel strongly connected to my community, and it gives me a different sense of self-worth than I've experienced before. It's like any other hobby.

Anyway, good to get another perspective - thanks.
