This is very true... - regarding location for sure. I work downtown Chicago and the club that I joined for 18 months starting this month of May (at $18 per month - DEAL!!!) is nearby so that is cool - today I did one of the eliptical machines for 30 minutes on my lunch hour - not a "max" workout - but still better than what I've done for the better part of the last 20 years - nothing. (except for lots of ransom dancing/headbanging - whatever that counts for!)
Did you get your kids back yet?
Seriously though, 30 minutes when you can get it in is awesome. If you only have 30 minutes, make it as high-intensity as possible; a lot of research coming out is indicating that brief workouts of high intensity are equivalent or better than a regular length, steady workout. I'm happy because my yoga studio (to whom I've been very devoted, been going there for 7 years straight) is moving to a new location next month which will be a 15 minute drive from me versus the current 30 minutes. Yay!
Haha on my typo - good to hear your opinion on the length of time. 30 minutes was pretty exhausting to me but I imagine it will get better. The craziest thing to me is how beet red in the face I get - even though I'm beginning at a pretty low level - guess it shows how out of shape I am cardio-wise. 30 minutes is cool though - I can do just about anything if it's only 30 minutes and it certainly is no huge time grab....I'd like to do that elliptical machine at least 3x a week as well as a couple classes - if I do this all before I start work - that is ideal since I really don't want to be doing all that after work, delaying dinner and all that. Not doing any of that this busy holiday weekend, but will go again on Tuesday. Haha - posting all this here is making be feel I need to be accountable.
