Exercising enough

I used to wonder if exercising only three hours a week is enough. Now I am convinced it is.

I exercise on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. I train equally hard on all three days. But the after-burn (that nice and mild pain in the muscles) of Thursday’s kettle-bell workout lasts until Sunday. So if I push myself hard enough on Thursday, the seemingly long three day break between Thursday and the  Monday allows my body to recover from the worthy suffering.

I sometimes dilute the exercising gains by making poor food and sleep choices. Although I am aware of it and am making increasingly wiser food choices, I am far from eating sensibly. And eight hours of sleep a night continues to be elusive.

Nevertheless, I am convinced quality, not quantity matters for exercising too.
