[pct-l] What do others do to get/stay in shape

I'm wondering what others do to stay/get into shape for section or 
multi-section walks (on a daily or weekly basis)? Assuming most people have 
9-5 jobs, what do you do? I've been walking either before or after work, at 
least a 4.5 mile up, over and down the ridge fire road loop 5 or 6 times a 
week; and if I can find the time, especially in the evening, try to do a 
longer 8 mile extension to the shorter loop once or twice a week. Sometimes 
I can especially go walking on a saturday or sunday - 15 to 20 miles, but 
generally weekends are taken up with family-time.From reading various trail 
journals (for thru or longer section hikers), I see more weekend warmup 
hikes, but don't notice much daily walking. Is this the norm? What works for 
other people? Your input, please...
thanks...  TheDuck
