I’m in the midst of doing that 110 minutes or cardio. Gotta admit, some of it’s quite easy cardio, aka CLEANING. It needed to be done, it burns calories, therefore it counts. Win/win.
But the whole process has got me thinking about cardio and how much people do. On average I usually do 30-45 minutes of cardio about 4 times a week, except for times like today when I’m making it 110 minutes or the occasional hour long workout. This just seems to be what it averages out to over time, but I’m not super strict about it. I miss the like 3 hours of cardio a day I was doing when I was in Vermont, but I can’t seem to motivate myself to do that anymore, despite having the time and loving how it feels. Guess that’s life and the fact that I don’t have classes at my gym (fail on my part… I didn’t understand how much I liked classes). My current amount of cardio keeps my heart chugging along and keeps me from regaining weight, even if I’m not losing any.
It makes me wonder how much other people do. I read other blogs a lot (I’m like a professional lurker) so I have some ideas, but really it’s hard to tell how much cardio someone does from a blog unless they track their workouts (some do).
So, just a couple quick questions I would love for you to answer. If you don’t want your name attached just answer anonymously. I’m just really curious.
1. How much cardio do you do at one time normally? What’s a normal session for you?
2. How many cardio sessions do you do a week?
3. What kind of cardio do you normally do? Classes? Running? HIIT?
Hit me up and satisfy this burning curiosity I have to know what other people are doing.
