So, I moved into a new apartment complex and in meeting more and more people here, I feel like EVERYONE I meet that I talk to is training for a half marathon. I’m not really much of a runner, but I like to every once in awhile. I’ve noticed though that every time I try to run every day for my workout, I get sick of it in a couple of weeks and get burned out. Therefore, I have learned that variety really is key.
Now, I’m no fan of fad diets and/or workouts BUT, there is a workout video set that I was introduced to by my ex and that I AM a fan of, that helps with the variety – P90x. It’s one of those workouts that you do and don’t feel the next day, but 2 days later you feel it. Most fad workouts come and go, but this one seems to have people a little more converted than most. And most things you get sick of, but this one has such a variety of different disks, you don’t get as bored as easily. Here’s a little video taste of it:
I have been realizing the importance, as I had heard many times before, of having a variety to your workouts. Lately, I have been alternating between Zumba class, road biking, jogging, and my P90x workouts. I just do whatever I feel like that day, and I’ve noticed that I’m much happier. This might not make me a hard core 1/2 marathon runner, but as long as I look and feel good, who cares? Tust do something every day and it will be a LOT more enjoyable!
