    5 times a week. I want boulder shoulders and well rounded glutes so I get up at 5:30am and am in the gym by 6am following a progressive overload program. I love it. I live for my gym time.

    I dont work out like normal people. My working out is actual work.

    Shoveling or large rural laneway.
    Cutting,splitting and stacking firewood.
    Kayaking etc

    May-September I "workout " every day for at least a few hours. In the winter it's mostly just clearing snow(in the land of snow nonetheless) which takes two of us approx 60-90 minutes.

    I love to HIKE too.....especially early morning! :)

    My current workout schedule:
    • Monday -- 3 mile run in am; upper body & core strength in pm
    • Tuesday -- Leg Day strength in am
    • Wednesday -- 3 mile run in am
    • Thursday -- 3 mile run in am; upper body & core strength in pm
    • Friday -- Full body strength in am
    • Saturday -- Long run morning -- anywhere between 5-12 miles
    • Sunday -- active rest day (I'll always hit my 10,000 steps)

    This helps me maintain my 50+ lb weight loss and keeps me in shape for races. I have my fifth half marathon coming up next week. And it's also slowly helping me lose a bit more weight. :)
