Right so my regular routine is to run (be it morning or evening) most days and use the gym at work (it's part of a conference centre so free; the company I work for rents land on the estate and as such we get to use the gym) and also use the gym at my fathers work (but I can only use that at weekends when we go to the gym together).
I live in the uk. Winters are nasty! The gym at work has just been demolished!! It will be rebuilt but due to some company changes we may be moving off site/losing the gym privileges.
I'm currently post op and hoping to get back to exercising early/mid August (running etc) at the latest.
I'm thinking a bit of forward planning is required here - I figure I have until say mid October/end of October before the mornings/nights are too dark (for one thing) and ultimately too cold (for another thing) to be able to run outside. I also (potentially) won't have the gym at work.
What to do what to do! I already know that winter is a MAJOR trigger time for me... dark nights, cosy houses, bars of chocolate calling my name etc.
I am looking into costs of joining a gym but I live in the countryside so there aren't that many around here and I do know that in order to ensure I go it's best to get one that I will GO to rather than one that's miles away etc.
So when the days are really short etc I can run on weekends, use gym at fathers workplace on weekends but what else? Weekend workouts just aren't going to cut it.
I was thinking exercise dvds but I'm limited on space (I could manage it somehow though anythings possible right?). I also need to go a bit hardcore with the training as I start my recruitment process end of this year/start of next year for British Forces so anyone have any suggestions on good high impact exercise dvds?
Alternatively any other suggestions/solutions to my problem?
Just trying to be a bit more pro-active in my approach - before the bad weather kicks in!
Thanks for any responses
