How Many Days Do You Work Out on the Weekend?

I try to get in at least one good workout every weekend, either by taking a lengthy bike ride, going for a day hike or climbing outing, or sweating it out in a two-hour yoga class that my studio offers on Saturday mornings.

How about you? Are weekends part of your workout routine, or are they days to chill and rest?

Weekends are when I get the MOST activity! I'm not very good at getting myself into the gym after work, so the hubby and I have been trying to make a point to either hike or ride bikes *every* weekend. It's been hard, but the more determined I become to do better the following weekend, the easier it is to convince myself to get into the gym during the week - heavy activity is *definitely* easier on me if I stay active in between!

Usually both Saturday and Sunday. I love the freedom of weekend workouts knowing that I don't have to be home at a certain time.

Knowing I'm more likely to eat a lot on the weekends keeps me motivated to work out on the weekends. When the weather's nice, the weekend is also the perfect time for long runs in the city.

NEVER EVER take a day off... unless I really must have to!

Usually both days. I am on a half marathon schedule, so the weekends are run days. I am thinking of changing it around, so I run only one day during the weekend.

I usually take one day off per week and sometimes it falls on a Saturday or Sunday, but this week Friday was my day off, so I'm working out both days this weekend. I actually like working out on weekends because I'm not as rushed and I have more time to enjoy myself.

It really depends. I don't have set workout days. If I'm not too sore or tired from the previous workout/day, I'll workout, doesn't matter what day of the week it is.

I like to do longer-than-usual workouts on both Saturday and Sunday, since I have so much more free time. That way, I can indulge a little during weekend meals out and go into the new week feeling accomplished. :)
