Just started my seasonal fitness workout; some weights and some cardio.

The snow started flying here last week so winter hiking season has arrived. Hiking in the snow is my favourite way to exercise in the winter. And... this may be the year we buy the whole family snowshoes. wink

Why would weights and cardio be restricted to a season? I'm not a young guy, but weights, core and cardio is part of my workout all year. Adding specific activities such as bicycling, skiing, surfing, swimming et al may be seasonal, but typical gym physical conditioning should be a three days a week all year kinda thing.

I learned (the hard way, of course) that it is much easier to stay in shape than to get in shape periodically; delete the lapses.

For me a godsend is a stationary bike, especially on days like we are experiencing now - lots of wind.

A life membership at the local gym 15 years ago was the godsend for me. The first year was difficult, but as you said, staying in shape is much easier than getting in shape.

I agree! My challenge this year was an ankle injury that has kept me sidelined the last 4 months. I usually run 3 or 4 times a week, but have not been able too until last week. I am in my mid forties and recovery is going well, just slow.

I hate it when i get injured and can't keep my fitness. It is so frustrating to see your own strenght go down... I'm terrible at taking enough recovery time. Just don't want loose my fitness. Good thing, I do enough sports, that I always get enough other things to train for.

I sometimes find it rather interesting to see people not being able to do things, I take for granted. I just can't image how some people can let there fitness slip to some levels.

Chronic injuries or illness can do anyone in. This isn't so hard to imagine, is it?
