Changing Workout Schedule

I'm lucky to have a pretty regular schedule when it comes to exercise. This is partially because I have a weird and flexible working schedule. (Be a professor/writer if you want a flexible schedule!)

It's also partially because my exercise involves being enrolled in classes that meet on certain days. But Life as a Mom means that I sometimes have to switch things around.

Usually, I do TKD M and Sat., then ballet T Th. Plus, Brian and I often get together for a short workout on Wednesdays. (That's mostly a brain workout, to help us keep the many forms in our memories! It helps.)

Last week, my schedule was a bit different. I did TKD M and W, then ballet T and Th. By Thursday, I was exhausted! Something about 4 days in a row of intense workouts--it was almost too much for me.

Gentle reader, what's your usual workout schedule? Maybe "workout" is too severe a word. What's your usual way of staying active? Do you martial artists take class more than 2 or 3 times a week? And those of you who do other things--is anyone living up to the govenment's suggested 30-60 minutes of exercise a day? (And I believe walking to work/school--that sort of thing--counts as exercise!)

Would you like to have more time to be active?

Just wondering!

My only regular physical activity is TKD, so I do a lot of it. On average, I usually train for a total of 8 or 9 hours a week. For the next few weeks, though, I'll be training for about 12 hours (I'm taking a 3 hour competitive sparring class every saturday for the next two months). Other than that, I don't really have any other form of exercise, except for the spontaneous run on the treadmill or a soccer match with my dog. And yes, I do sometimes wish (especially when I'm sitting in Chemistry), that I had more time to work out. Oh, and I've posted a blog entry that you might be able to comment on, since its in your area. Have a great day!
