Hmmm... Your Gym Routine

V.I.P.
Since COVID-19 hit, I haven't been to the gym. It's been a real bummer for me as my gym time was my favorite every week. Greaet way to blow off some steam, stay in shape, and just listen to a podcast.

I do a bit of weight lifting on occasion but mostly I do cardio, that's my jam.

I go to the gym 3 times a week.

I'll do a sprint interval workout on the bike one day, totally kicks my butt. I do this for at least 45 minutes.

Another day I'll do the elliptical. I try to go at an aggressive pace to really make it hard on me. Again, 45 minutes.

The last day, I'll go for a run. 2-3 miles, however long it takes. Running is really hard as I've only recently gotten back into it.

I allow myself the freedom to choose what I want to do each day when I go to the gym, I'm not on a specific program. The key is that I commit to do each of the three above items once a week.

After each workout I will go and relax in the sauna for a good hour or so. I always bring 2 liters of cold water to stay hydrated and keep from overdoing it. I have to say, this is the thing I am most looking forward to when everything reopens.

I have a weightlifting system in the cellar of the house that I live in. But I haven't used it in years.

However, I don't want to get rid of it in case I change my mind and start weightlifting once again like I did when I was a teenager back in the '90's.

I've hardly ever worked out at a gym or fitness center before. Maybe I'll try it at some point.

I used to go to the gym a lot, then I became "poor" - the subscription here is very expensive, about 4x more than in the US. Now it's just on and off thing for me to exercise at home. I wish I have an elliptical - I liked that a lot as well as the Les Mills programs (my fave gym routine).

This month I tried doing those 30-day app challenges - I'm on my 12th day of plank challenge, it's killing me haha.

Years ago when I was in high school, a bunch of my classmates and I were at a gym in which we lifted weights to see which one of us was the strongest.
