Because things are constantly changing in life, I have to take workout changes and goals in stride, as well. So, it’s time to adjust.
I work 60-80 hours a week between my paying jobs and my volunteer work. That leaves me between 32 & 52 hours a week (beyond sleep time) to memorize lines, relax, play Ultimate on Sundays, run errands and workout. Not a lot of time…
So right now, I have to find an intense, but short workout that I can implement into my routine for the next 9-12 weeks, without wasting time (and gas) by driving across town to the gym. At least I can easily run around this neighborhood without any issues. The weight-training, however, is sorely lacking…but, I’ll make due. Body-weight training can be effective, especially when adding resistance bands.
So the plan is:
- Run 3-5 miles 5 times a week (M-F)
- Play Ultimate 1 time weekly (Sundays)
- Body-weight training after my run (M,W,F)–focusing on squats, tricep dips, pushups and some resistance band sandbag type exercises
We’ll see how we do…
