What would a dedicated fitness junky do if they had all the time in the world to workout?
'Fitness junkie' seems to convey someone who's addicted to exercising and wants to exercise all the time. That would not be me. I relish doing what is necessary, and very little more, to attain to my notion of fitness.
I'm a firm believer in Minimum Effective Dosage, particularly for the busy individual. I certainly do believe that one can exercise so much that it becomes a detriment to progress. Therefore, I don't want to cultivate 'training angst'. Get in. Get out. Get on with your life.
Now, for the busy and antsy person who's got a little extra time on their hands, who can't conceive of not adding something in, I'd say add low-intensity stuff. Walk. Hike. Canoe. Raft. Maybe a little rock climbing for a rush.
