Though it's not my favorite form of exercise, I have to say that running is by far the most frugal form of exercise! All you need is a pair of running shoes (running clothes optional, we all know that!) and you can run anywhere. Maybe it's not that easy, but it is a whole lot cheaper than the annual gym membership I let lapse at the beginning of the summer.
You may have read that I recently ran a half marathon. I used a Hal Higdon half marathon training schedule to get myself in shape. It was a lot easier to train knowing that many have gone through this type of schedule before me. Having a one-page printout on my fridge kept me accountable and also gave me a place to take notes on runs and keep track of where I was going to run certain distances.
