- Running - I go for 5km runs, three times a week. I started at the beginning of last year, when I downloaded a Couch to 5k app. I've never been a runner and it's still really challenging for me (I'm in pain from about 2 minutes in all the way til the end), so I don't think I'll be doing City2Surf anytime soon.
- Swimming - I go to the pool once a week and swim 3km each time. Swimming was my sport I was younger, so I find it much easier than running. I like swimming as exercise but it's just hard to schedule in a visit to the pool at a good time. I also wish I could listen to music while swimming, because right now I have to just get lost in my thoughts and my imagination can get pretty whack.
- 7 minute workout app - This one I do really sporadically on days I don't run/swim. 7 minutes sounds too good to be true and it is - you're supposed to do three in a row, which I don't, but something is better than nothing right? It actually makes me feel a little out of breath! And I don't even do proper push-ups.
As of today, I haven't run in more than a week because I just can't shake this cold I have. I thought I was getting better last week, so I went for a swim, but I must have misjudged badly because right after that a nasty chest cough flared up and I've now lost my voice (I sound like Marge Simpson). So I'm taking a break, which I hate, because in terms of running I feel like whenever I stop for a week I regress double that. Ah well, it's been raining a lot anyway!
How do you guys like to get your exercise?
