Spring is here! Now that the spring season has officially begun, it is time for a new fitness routine.
Although our weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area is still wintry, I am going to try and push through my spring fitness routine, and get outside more!
One of my goals for 2018 was to get outside more, so I am trying to integrate more outside fitness into my spring routine. Since this is our rainy season, I need to ensure I have an indoor back-up plan in place in case of inclement weather on an outdoor fitness day.
Monday: Outdoor hike for 30 minutes plus 15 minute stretch routine
Tuesday: Spin class
Wednesday: Swimming workout-about 4000 yards.
Thursday: 30 minute interval workout at home, alternating cardio drills, core work and strength drills. (my schedule on Thursdays is crazy busy-so I need to squeeze something in at home)
Saturday: Family Hike outside for 60 minutes
Sunday: Rest day.
The problem with my fitness routine, is that I need to add weights! So, as of right now, my indoor alternate workout for rainy days involves a one hour treadmill LifeFitness Course, and about a half hour of weights. This will help me integrate weights into my routine; unless we don’t get our weekly rainy days-then I need to re-evaluate this routine! Haha
As you know, in a typical fitness routine, there should be a good combination of cardio, interval, anaerobic cardio, core work, strength work (using body weight), and weights. This fitness routine addresses all of those components except for the weights; which I am hoping will naturally fall into my routine on rainy days.
What is your typical fitness routine during the spring season? If you like to workout outside, how do you incorporate weights into your weekly routine?
Thanks for stopping by!
