I’ve discovered there are some people who exist who are even sicker than me.
Hard to believe, but the folks who want to hear about my workout life I thought really may need to have a checkup. However, I’ve continued to hear requests about laying out what I typically do in my daily workout routines.
Well, here it goes. Love it or leave it. This is my little world.
Four to five days a week, I usually start at 3:45 to 4 a.m. with stretching and warm up for about 20 to 25 minutes. Then it’s off to run, swim, bike, lift weights or participate in a group fitness activity at my health club. Sometimes, I will do these activities at my gym and sometimes not. It just depends on what I have scheduled for the day. Prior to heading to my main activity, I have to stop at the local Kum and Go store for a quick jolt of coffee, the daily news and conversation with the “regulars” assembled at that time of day.
By 5:15 a.m., I’m generally fully engaged in the activity of the day. I may just do one activity, depending on the time that I have scheduled for the day. However, I might supplement my workout with some weights or other resistance exercise.
I try to have one pretty light day and one day of rest. Additionally, there may be days where I will do resistance exercises or swimming during my lunch hour. When I’m in full training mode, I may have some evening workouts planned too, but I try to minimize those with my family’s busy schedule.
That’s it! Pretty boring perhaps. However, I’ve found myself in a groove that serves me well, so I try to stick to it!
