For me, walking gets boring . . . so I try to change it up a bit, and keep the same level of activity. So far, I’ve found the following works to varying degrees:
Mountain Biking with my wife. When I go solo, I go too fast, and it quickly becomes cardio. When I’m with my kids, it’s really slow … . . so more of a NEPA lite. But, with my wife, it’s just right
Rollerblading with kids on their bikes. We explore churches and schools who have nice sidewalk mazes. See where they go, etc. Atlanta is pretty hilly, so there’s plenty of chances to sweat w/o losing your breath. (On my body, the line between aerobic and cardio is me losing my breath . . easy way to tell when I’m leaving NEPA and entering cardio)
I’ve tried swimming once, but it was very relaxing . . I think I need to walk / swim laps instead of just horsing around with kids.
What have you guys found / tried?
