    @Cormo Haha burpees? I don't think so, I'm about 260lbs, I don't even think my body bends that way anymore... we're moving on Friday and I'm planning on doing laps of our farm and signing up for the gym. I have a little routine I'm meant to do when I get up in the morning and before bed but I haven't really started yet. I can keep you posted if you would like.

    Thanks for the tips :)

    I have trouble sticking to anything/making routines.

    Yeah. I try to go to the gym at least 3 times a week, and on the days I'm not there, I dance.

  3. #23

    I try to gym it every day, combination of the cross-trainer, bike, resistance machine, climber, floor exercises and weights. I've only been doing it for 3 weeks but I really love it. :)

    Yes, typically 5-7 days a week. My goal is always to go to the gym after work every weekday (whether it is for cardio, weightlifting, or something like yoga or pilates really depends on the day and my mood) and then do "fun" things on the weekends such as hiking or running with a friend or a bike ride, etc. :)

    I exercise 5 times a week. I am an ultra marathon runner and try to stay around 40 miles a week, but that shifts during training. I just completed 3 road marathons (26.2) in the last 9 months. I also teach group fitness: kickboxing, RIPPED, and ABS/Core. About 4 times a week. I also cycle quite a bit.

    I just got accepted to train with one of the top coaches (a 4 time Olympic qualifier) who is going to get me to Boston. So starting i August, my ass is going to be owned.

    Exercise isn't hard for me. My motivation comes naturally. It's recovery and tapering that are the most difficult for me. Plus, I want to do everything so I have all kinds of bucket lists.

    That is awesome! Congrats with your new coach!

    Since you are an avid runner, I wonder if I might ask you for a tip or two.... :) I am guessing you were born a natural runner, I one the other hand was not. :( But, I'm trying. I'm stubborn like crazy and like to "conquer" things I am not good at. However, running never seems to get any easier. My legs hold up just fine, it's my lungs that seem to be the problem. Any tips for improving this?

    Lol. I'm not a "natural runner". I didn't start running until college.

    First thing I always recommend is fixing your gait/cadence. You might be working too hard. Bad form puts more stress on your legs and heart. Make sure your foot is striking the ground at 180 BPM.

    You are going to have to build up your aerobic capacity. What kind of distances are you doing? How many days a week are you running? Incorporating speed training 1 day a week is really going to help you. Do you have a running goal? For instance, is there a race you are looking at? I only do 1 long run a week, a speed work-out, 2 recovery runs, and something in between. I don't go for distance every day. I don't go broke for speed every day.

    I exercise almost everyday in the wee hours of the morning on the Wii or surfing youtube for videos and that usually ends up with me crawling the rest of the day because something cramped up. haha.

    The idea of going to a gym frightens me.

    Yes, I do exercise. I run five times a week for about an hour and will add Pilates onto that at least twice a week. I'd like to say it is because of a healthy mindset, but I am just aiming to look good naked.

    Aw. First time at the gym is frightening for a lot of people. It's a big step to walk through that door. But if and when you do decide to go, those of us who lead classes or who are trainers are very aware of this. We will help you to feel like you belong. And who knows maybe you will end up like feeling that extra support being in a group of people who have the same goals as you?

    I'm not trying to force you to go. It's good that you are finding ways to get in your exercise. But I think if you ever gave the gym a chance, it might end up being fun for you and inspire you more. I know I like to teach my aerobic classes with the idea that we're a team and it's a non-competitive atmosphere. I love welcoming newcomers and I make sure to really taylor it for them and break things down for them. They usually end up coming back again, and again. Many of them felt exactly as you do now.
