Day 8 - Your workout routine
My workout routine is build around the two days I have scheduled for a proper gym workout - Wednesday and Sunday. On those days I spend a few hours there doing a thorough workout for my whole body. Usually I’m so sore the next day that I have a rest day except for a few walks.
If I’m not too sore on Mondays and Thursdays I have the same routine as on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. I try to do both morning and evening workout where I focus on one part of my body at a time. Arms in the morning, tights in the evening, abs in the morning, back in the evening etc.
Somewhere in between I also try to go for a run or a nordic walk whenever I have time. If I have an evening shift at work I may go for a run in the morning and then do my arm workout or if I have a morning shift or a day off I leave the run for the evening before the later workout.
The routine I’ve established the best is my morning walks. I go for a about a half a mile walk every morning when I wake up. It’s a lot more relaxing to enjoy my breakfast after I’ve properly woken up during the walk.
I don’t have a strict schedule so I try to go for what feels good. Right now my biggest problem seems to be that I have gotten so into the whole workout thing that I don’t dare to do anything else on my free time such as hang out with friends or go shopping. :D But it’s fine. When my studies start this fall I’ll be so preoccupied with them and the whole new life that I’ll have to tone it down with all the training. So let’s enjoy as long as we can.
