Meet Madison (#3)- Exercise

Hey there! It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another Meet Madison post! Today I’ll be talking about exercise in my life.

As you probably know, I really enjoy “racing.” I put it in quotes because I don’t race competitively. I’m slow and steady when it comes to running, and that’s just fine with me. I have completed two half marathons, five 5k’s, and one 10k. You can read about my races here.

Running is definitely my cardio of choice. Working out on a machine in the gym just can’t beat it! I do go in phases though. I get extremely physically and mentally exhausted from running, and it happens fairly regularly. You will see me get sick of running, take breaks, and jump back into it a lot here on the blog. My exercise routine all depends on what is currently happening in my life.


Walking is my second favorite way to exercise! Iย loveย to go for walks. Any time that my body doesn’t feel up to something more strenuous or I just need to clear my head, I go for a walk. It is peaceful, and I love getting the chance to relax and do some thinking by myself.

I do not strength train nearly as much as I need to. In fact, I barely strength train at all these days. It just ins’t very fun for me. That being said, I am definitely missing the benefits that it used to bring me. I miss toned arms and waking up to sore muscles in the mornings. I plan on getting back into it this summer when I don’t have to get up so early. I’m actually pretty excited!

I love to hike, and I also recently tried bike riding. As hot as it is here in AZ, I still love the outdoors! I have also done some yoga, but I don’t really enjoy it because I’m not flexible at all.

Overall, I am trying to find balance in my workout routine. I always focus on one thing, and I quickly get burnt out. If I can find a good combination of running, walking, hiking, and strength training, I am confident that I will be able to stick with it!

What are your workouts of choice?
