- Dog intervals - That's what I call it when I end up taking the dogs for a run/walk. I consider this to be a form of speed work because it's essentially a fartlek run. We sprint when we run, with periods of walking in between. The distances end up determined mostly by the dogs. BTW, this is actually a good exercise for the dogs too (The inserted image is about dog intervals on a treadmill. We run outside, but the benefit to the dogs remains).
- Painting - I spent several hours painting a section of the interior of the house. I consider this to be a form of upper body exercise.The part I was painting required using brushes, not a roller, and took a long time given the actual dimensions of the walls. I definitely feel it in my arms afterwards.
- Yard Work/Gardening - Right now I'm working out the kinks in the irrigation system. In a few weeks I will be planing my veggie garden. Then there will be weeding. I consider this to be a form of lower body exercise because it requires a lot of squatting.
Do you log any unconventional training activities as workouts?
