gardening!!! its exhausting at times but it really makes me feel good - i'm outside in the sun, fresh air, in the dirt (hello good bacteria) and i am planting things that will make this place better :) what more could you ask for?!
Speed walking for sure, with a good audiobook, I download a lot for free at MIT's open courseware website ( http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/ ). Also I do "walking" meditation.
Also freestyle dance in my living room :)
definatley tribal dancing and belly dancing very gypsy style bit flamenco to.....its so earthy....and so much fun......a good work out too....also zumba..yoga. bike riding all gets the blood pumping...You definatley do not need a gym......
In my opinion, I think that as a LFRV, it's a good idea to at least incorporate SOME form strength training, especially to maintain and gain weight. Because of my training, people have finally stopped saying, you need more protein! And now, at least they say, wow you look so much healthier, it must be all of those bananas you are eating! (regardless of what fruit I've actually eaten, even though sometimes this statement is true)
It's important to remember that endurance training is catabolic (with some exception), so if you choose to be an endurance athlete, no doubt that you will have very health organs, but you may end up with weaker muscles. However, if this is your sport then you're going to have to train it a lot.
While I'm building more muscle and getting better at gymnastics, of course I'm getting worse at long distance running and cycling, but I've chosen my sport, am sticking with it, and am getting the results I desire.
Stationary Bike, at least 90 minutes a day when I wake up, before work. This guarantees that I have done something for myself, no matter how the rest of the day goes. I can do it while it is dark or if the weather is bad; no excuses, ever.
Run or racewalk, at least 25 laps at the high school track after work. I reward myself for a good day or console myself for a bad day. Doing laps helps me practice maintaining a constant pace.
Sports -> soccer's my #1, basketball's fun too. and dancing. i like these because i'm not exercising just for the sake of exercising, not that there's anythingwrong with that, it just makes it easier for me to push my limits when there's other motivation involved, like "must get ball, must be faster, must cross in front of net" you get the idea lol.
zuzanna's workouts are pretty fun too (their really short but sooooo intense!)
