When Is Too Much Exercise Overkill?

exercising too much, exercise overkill or pushing myself

Nearly 2 hours of physical exercise today. Sure I’ll pay for it tomorrow, but I feel great. Image courtesy of photostock and FreeDigitalPhotos.net.

Today I did:

  • 30 minutes of yoga
  • 37 minutes of upper body strength training
  • 45 minute power walk

I feel great. I’m also exhausted. Normally I do one type of exercise a day because…I always do it that way.

Ugh. What a horrible phrase. “I always do it that way.” It’s like nails on a chalkboard. Just an excuse for not giving your all.

Perhaps I felt restless and just needed to move. Maybe those 3 episodes of Heavy I watched last night inspired me to do more.

Or perhaps it’s time to stop doing the expected and start pushing my myself.

I think the 2 hour workout is here to stay.
