What’s for Lunch? Run, Swim, Bike, Crossfit, Yoga….

“1 out of 13 workers in England are out running on their lunch break”

That’s almost 10% of the populace! You can read more here

The Rise Of The Run-ch Break

I have seen several runners on the road at noontime here in Manila. Probably, it’s their heat training for BDM 102 this March 🙂

With the climate here in the Philippines, I don’t think we’d reach that number of people running outside at lunchtime like England. It will be extremely HOT and it might be unhealthy for the skin.

Noon is a good time to squeeze in a short workout though. You can schedule your own cross training, a treadmill run, spinning or indoor swim.

I’ve been doing noontime workouts at Crossfit recently and it’s been working well for me. The break is just enough for a 15-30 minute WOD (that feels like 2-hours).

You just need to pack your apparels before leaving the house.  If you need running apparels, you can check this site.

Pros:
You’re not too tired, nor sleepy.

You have a complete 8 hours of sleep.

You can still squeeze the run workout in the afternoon after work (if you have a training program specific for running like me).

You feel re-energize again to face work in the afternoon-saves you a penny from your usual Starbucks fix.

When something comes up at work in the afternoon, there’s no workout to miss.

Cons:
You got to pack so many clothes.

You will miss on the usual office chats over lunch.

You have to eat lunch quickly/better pack your lunch.

Check out the nearby workout options for you from work.

There’s really no excuse not to give your body the workout it deserves.
