Sneaking in Fitness when Life it too Busy!

The holidays are coming and sometimes it is just too busy to fit in fitness. What can we do? I say – sneak it in. If it is a priority for you – schedule it on your calendar. Make it a habit – schedule it, put your running/exercise clothes out and have them ready to go. If you are tired – just go do it anyway!

I run a lot of Sneak it in Strength training challenges and this idea can be applied to running, conditioning and/or strength training.

Here are my tips:

Ø  Do 10 to 15 minutes of strength, stretching or conditioning every chance you get. At work during breaks, during commercials of your favorite TV shows and/or before/after you come home from work.

Ø  Plan out 30 minutes of running 3 times a week. By the way you can’t have goals of running marathons and sneak in running – these goals require commitment and training, so you need more time built into your schedule.

Ø  Fit strength and conditioning in on the weekend.

Ø  Double up on your least strenuous days of the week – strength and a run.

In general, to keep up your running fitness you want to run 3 days a week. To get stronger and more conditioned you want to do at least 1 hour and 30 minutes a week – you can break this up as much as you need to do so.
