There has been a few posts lately about missing days off. I thought it might be helpful if we share how we use our excess energy on our non running days.
Personally I shake it up with swimming/hikeing/epileptic trainer and racewalking. I have tried cycling but I did not find the love. I will still get my bike out occasionally but I have to push myself.
By accident I have found a new exercise that I love love love as much as running and that is race walking. It uses 95% of your muscles, different ones to running and I can get my speeds nearly the same as my running. It is slow to learn and I am looking for a proper coach for form. It is one where you have to really work on your form to avoid injury so I am trying to start with good habits. As my husband and best friend say it's me getting my wiggle on.
Don't worry if your just starting and the extra energy might not be there yet but it comes as your body adjusts to exercise. Have a look for some future ideas.
So let's share, What do you do?
