Okay back to your regularly scheduled program (somewhat). I had a WIAW post all layed out for yesterday but my life got messy so I guess it can be a what I ate Thursday or something like that. WIAT sounds kind of ridiculous though so I’ll save it for Friday Favorites! Ah perfect. I’m glad I can use my blog to talk through my blogging rut.
Now that I’ve stopped swimming, I have more time for more things in the exercise department: ie weight training. I’m certainly not going to replace 2 hours of swimming everyday with weight training.
But it will give me something to do for like a half an hour or so. So please give me your ideas/tips whatever. Way back in the day, ie: not last summer but the summer before-I was really into weight lifting with my class and going to the gym. I was for a little while at the beginning of this summer but little ole stress fracture ruined that.
Moral of the story: I’m always looking for advice on weight lifting.
I’ve also been asked this question several times lately: Are you going to replace swimming with 2 hours of cardio at the gym/up your miles for running?
I can assure you I will not be transforming those 2 precious swimming hours into some other form of cardio. I will up my running milage eventually (when I figure out exactly what I’m training for) but nothing anywhere remotely close to running 2 hours daily. I kind of just want to give my body a break. I swam 2 hours because it was mandatory. I ran an hour a day because it’s mandatory. I didn’t do it because I enjoy staring at the bottom of the pool for two hours.
So in short, I may eventually up my miles but right now I’ll just be focusing on maintaining my running where it is. Plus we are going into taper next week for running so I won’t be exercising much at all.
Question for you:
What is your favorite form of exercise?
