Hi Ronny

It's great, Ronny, no problems. I mean, you're doing more exercise that 70% of people, I reckon and as long as you're feeling healthy and fit, you're in good shape and so just keep it up. There's no such thing, really, as "sufficient", because it all depends on the person and their goals. But what you're doing is great, so I'd give itthe thumbs up!
