Dipping My Toes in Workouts Over 30 Minutes
I just completed a hybrid month of Core de Force, which included a few Insanity, Hammer & Chisel and P90X3 workouts. The major difference between this month and the last year and a half is that the time to complete them was beyond 30 minutes.
Sometimes it was only a few (taking me to 36 minutes) but more often than not, when adding on the ab workouts I was looking at an hour. Adding in those additional 30 minutes took a lot of coordinating, especially as Dylan has been waking up earlier.
So Josh was waking up at 5AM to get his workout in. Dylan usually was waking up just as he was finishing, and I would get her up, diaper changed and then he would take her down for breakfast while I got my workout in. Some days this worked perfectly, other days we were rushing around like crazy people.
This also resulted in some amazing workout time with Dylan. She especially loved any time we were jumping. She is just learning how to jump and thrilled when she gets to do it.
It felt really good to get back into hour-long workouts, though I am not sure I can maintain that schedule with work and how busy our social calendar is (it is birthday season for us, plus travel to Disney World). I did see a significant difference in my body after this month. My abs were popping and I felt leaner so I might just end up taking my workouts day by day based on my schedule instead of following a specific program.
I haven't been "flexible" in my schedule like that because I don't have the mental capacity to map out my day and leave it up to chance. If I can figure out a time on Sunday to maybe look at my upcoming week and know which days I can do longer workouts. Any recommendations on the best way to do that?
