Re: What do you do to keep fit?
During the winter I play rugby! keeps you in tip top shape (apart from a few cuts, bruises, lumps and bumps) and then riding develops my core strength, which helps rugby, which then helps riding! etc.
Bit harder during the summer though because theres no rugby on, but I'm currently training for Tough Mudder (12 miles, 25 special forces military style obstacles, finish by running through a field full of dangling live wires - good fun.) Having something to work towards is a great motivator.
That means running 5 miles at the moment, going to increase to 7 eventually, introduce sprinting, and gym once a week, where I'll run the 1.5 miles to the gym, do an all-over workout (cardio, upper body, rowing), then run back!
Just in case anyone wants to have a look, I'm running it for help for heroes, and hopefully, if possible, for my local RDA. ---> toughmudder.co.uk/
