Fun In The Sun - My Sunday Workout

While many of us rediscovered the wonder of exercising in the great outdoors, the summer heat can make the prospect seem far less appealing. Yes, this is the peak of the summer in Australia, but we still enjoy our outing and have fun.




Beaches anyone?


We go to the beaches at the first opportunity 


Most of us live close to beaches, but even if we don’t, we don’t mind driving a few hours to head to the best beaches on the planet. 




Yes, Australia has some of the best beaches anywhere in the world and the beaches are always high on Australians’ workout priority list. For a no-frills workout, we try doing our regular run on sand.

The extra effort and muscle engagement required to run on the sand means it burns more calories compared to running on a running-path. Then water sports such as surfing, paddle boating, and windsurfing are another great way to cool down and work up a sweat.




There are many reasons to give these water sports a go, but most of all they are low impact and utilize almost every moving part of our body, whilst balancing the whole time. We focus on core strength, balance, and the best part, any age can give it a go.




Go for a team sport


Activities like beach-ball, football, and netball all are good for a team sport, a great way of socializing and get your vitamin D. You can get a serious calorie burn with a whole range of team sports while it makes you accountable to others, which in itself is a great reason.


And another motivation to get out of your bed early morning and head to a beach.




It does inside out for me


Taking advantage of these beautiful, crisp early summer mornings by transferring my regular gym workout to the outdoors, which I do even when I am not on a beach, I go to the nearest park and take full advantage outdoors. This always includes movements such as body weight exercises.




Most bodyweight exercises are multi-joint exercises for me and therefore super-effective. A bodyweight exercise in particular always enhances coordination, balance, and mobility.




Now what I will do


I am in Canberra right, no going to beaches because of restrictions. I was feeling a little adventure this Sunday morning, so I grabbed my exercise mat, stepped outside, went to the park across the road, a vast green space with all the exercising facilities and equipment by the council.




I will go Bushwalking this evening in green


We have a team bushwalking plan in the spectacular scenery in Canberra that is an effective workout too. We have a plan to spend two hours in that area which is a perfect picnic area and enjoy the evening with our friends spending time in green spaces with lot of fun and joy.

The combination of workout and the fun activities  are a marvellous combination  and only a fool will mind driving some extra miles/km. I can assume hou anxiosly you would be waiting for an opportunity to hit the beaches. TBH the bushwalking plan you have outlined is no less a fun activity in itself.You will right now be there only or woud have just wound up i believe. That is one heck of an enjoyable life. Mind you the grass on the other side always looks greener. Ha Ha Ha

The grass on this side is really more than enjoyable. Actually, I drafted this post last Sunday but posted it when Sunday is still 3 hours away.  There is no doubt, I will miss all this when back in my city although I have some options open for me. I have plans to go live in the Himalaya by the end of this year if all goes well!

Necessity is the mother of all inventions.

We will always find ways to do things while avoiding the sweltering summer heat. In my case, I have walks of about 3km every day within my work (my house is within the facilities of an event center that has an area of half a hectare) and the sun and heat become unbearable between 1pm and 6pm. By the way, I've chosen to do some work after 7pm until it gets dark at 10pm because it's daylight savings time. I have never been to the beaches here in Chile, and I don't know if I will because they say they are too cold, but the water in the pools is the ideal temperature to take a dip in the evening.

Australians are different. It makes no difference whether it's too cold or too hot but you will find them on the beaches or in the parks. As a routine, I walk, jog and take the best advantage of this park just in front of my house with all facilities of the gym, swimming, etc. I am sure you leave no chance of enjoying your walks etc. By the way, I am getting a lot of time since I am lesser active on Uptrennd.

I have noticed that you are less active in Uptrennd :)

The important thing is that you are happy with everything you do and also dedicate time for yourself and yours
