For sample adults who had participated in hiking in the past 2 weeks (EXHIKE), EXHIKEMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent hiking each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in hiking, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you hike?" (EXHIKENO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend hiking each time?" EXHIKEMIN reports the answer to this last question.

As a follow-up, respondents were asked how much their heart rate or breathing had increased while hiking (EXHIKEBR).
