I do my big workouts in the evening. “Evening” here is defined as between 4:30p and 8p.
I do this for two reasons: I shower at night, and I teach yoga in the evening.
I shower at night
If I shower at night, then I can wake up in the morning and just go! Do life! By waiting until the evening to workout, I do not interrupt my daily routine of getting things done.
I teach in the evening during the week
My weekday classes are 6:30p to 7:30p. Being a morning person, this took me years to get used to, and I am not about to undo this habit.
I teach for two hours on Saturdays (8a Morning Yoga and 10a Vinyasa Yoga). On Saturdays, I generally do nothing else. No weights. No running.
However, I am an active lifestyle person. This means that I am not sitting down the rest of the day.
My Saturdays look like this generallyI tend to give myself about two hours of sit-on-your-butt time after I shower. Then, I have the rest of the day to walk my dog, ride my bike, and things like that.
