I was just wondering about others in the forum who consider themselves newer to exercise, at least at this stage in their lives? What are you doing now, and how's it going?
I learned to love exercise in college, including some lifting, but have been much more up and down in the decade since then. I started with PB about a month ago now, and have gradually been adding more exercise back in. Besides all the walking - easy to fit in as the mom of a 2.5yo with several parks in walking distance! - I'm also:
- Sprinting at the park, 1x/wk
- Sometimes using the elliptical machine for a little easy cardio or HIIT
- Trying to work up to running an easy mile or so, 1x/wk - today I went for 1.5 miles, half-walk, half-jog
- Bodyweight stuff (pushups, squats, etc.) & a favorite stretching routine 2x/wk
- 20m of basic yoga 1x/wk
So a little something most days of the week... Never more than 20-30m. I'm just hitting the point that, while I can still feel the workout the next day, I'm not so sore anymore.
