I log my strength workouts in a book at home that I bring to the gym, so I always have those at the ready if I need to refer to an old workout, or to track progress. Writing them on the blog is just another record, a digital one, and maybe those posts also serve as an inspiration, motivation, or just a source of information for anyone looking for any of those things. I certainly hope so, but I'm not really sure who reads those posts after they go up.
Some weeks I get so busy that my weekly wrap-ups are the only thing I get to post all week long. I would hate if: a) the majority of my posts are just workout updates, or b) if I don't post my workouts, will the blog sit quiet more than I would like it to?
So that's what's on my mind right now. I am actually kind of hoping that I can keep with semi-interesting things to say about my workouts, and try out lots of new things to report on!
Today I did a boxing class and I would love to share about that experience! It was so much fun. And it was nice to be out of my typical gym routine.
I also think the hardest thing about letting go of running for a little while is that I loved the change in routine between strength and running workouts. I loved getting outside to run and then mixing it up with the time in the gym, too. Now, it's all sweaty testosterone dude-filled gym, all the time. I love to lift weights, but that environment gets a little old!
How do you vary up your strength routine so you don't get burned out on being at the gym?
