I like to rest up on Saturday and workout on Sunday

We run errands on Saturdays, no time for rest or working out. So on Sunday I usually work out.

I prefer to get in some type of activity during the weekends - yoga, biking, walking, hiking to name a few. There is so much more time so why sit around and do nothing! emoticon

I prefer weekends in the AM. It seems to be much more tranquil that at other times.

I usually take Sat off and do something small but I always workout hard on Sunday!

I try to keep active no matter what the day because I have the tendency to slack off when I start backing off on the fitness minutes.

I like both. I'll sometimes take Saturday off, but usually get back at it on Sunday. I can also do a really long workout on Sunday's because I have nothing very pressing that day. And I figure I can catch up on my sleep during the sermon.

Both! I love to sleep in on the weekends and then head to the gym after some 'refreshments'; however too often my list of errands is too long to invest the time at the gym I lust for; so I choose sleep.

I LOVE working out in the gym on the weekends - in the mornings. At my gym, a lot of body builders are there on the weekend and they are GREAT motivation.

I also love working out on holidays.

I work out in the early am, so I love to run on weekends - I don't have to get up at 4 am (I start work at 7). I generally wake up early anyway, then I run or do a video or two or do some weight training. You don't have to worry about how long it's taking on weekends.

I work out only on Saturdays. I work out 4 days (5 days if my mood/body allows) during the week so I like to take my rest on the weekend. Saturdays, I do low-impact workouts (I've starting taking swimming lessons). Sundays, I like to rest. Honestly, Sundays are the only days I get to sleep in so I take full advantage of it. It's also my day to prepare my meals for the week so I can focus on that and get in some me-time (at-home pedicures).

I like working out of the weekends because I don't feel so confined to a schedule: work, school, kids, family, dinner, bedtime, etc. Weekends are mostly unscheduled which makes the workout more enjoyable.

I mean, I LIKE resting up any day of the week ! lol ...But, nonetheless, I usually workout at least 6 days a week.

Exercise gives me strength, energy and flexibility. Also, the more active I am, the more calories I burn. Therefore it is daily for me - seven day a week. Sundays are "choice day" for me. I allow myself to take leisurely walk or do stretching as opposed to a hard, long run, weight lifting, or an exercise class such as Pilates or Aerobics.

By striving to do it every day, I get breaks on days I cannot do it due to illness, injury, or occasional travel. It is hard enough to do it daily as it is due to the time exercise requires!

I'm always working out, be it a run or just walking around. I leave my ST for during the week. My long slow run is always on a Sunday.

It so depends :D
Some days everything is just right for a long cardio session, other times I can hardly get out of bed and even playing tag with the kids seems to be a heroic deed...

I try to workout one day on the weekend, and take the other day off. Now that I am doing a long run that takes 90+ minutes, Saturday morning is really the best time to do it. Keeping my weekday workouts to about an hour or less leaves me time to cook a healthy dinner, ride my horse, tend my garden, and keep the house from going to heck completely since I work full time.

With full-time work and a toddler, weekends are when I can get my biggest workouts in. It's also a great time for our family to go out together. It's important to me to be a good example for my son, so I try to exercise in his presence whenever I can. He's also a great personal trainer because he loves it when I run and gets whiny if I "just walk" for too long!

On Saturday morning, my husband plays pick-up basketball with friends for an hour or two at a local park, while I walk/jog around the block with our son in his stroller. It's about 1.5 miles around the block and the park's located in a canyon, so I go uphill for half of it and burn some major calories during my laps.

On Sundays, we do a more leisurely walk around the lake as a family -- although I'm slowly working on getting my husband to jog/run at least half the time.

Sundays are my day to take it easy. I like to rest over the weekend but if I skip a workout during the week I'll make it up on Saturdays.

I find it more difficult to workout on the weekends. There are too many things that need my attention, too many people needing my time.

I especially like working out on weekends. I have more free time then and can go to a state park or something for a change of pace.

I end up mostly taking Sundays off just because something always seems to come up.

my favorite times for the gym are Friday night and 8:00 Saturday morning. Very few people there, so if I want a full hour on the treadmill...it's all mine!

Sunday mornings I like to run at a park near the house.

I mix it up from weekend to weekend. Maybe do Sat and Sun. Maybe do Sat. Maybe do Sun, etc. I do try to exercise, at least walk on one of the weekend days.

I like resting up unless I do something fun like hiking, biking, or swimming.

I have to workout on weekends so I can get in enough exercise, I have a chemo schedule to work around. I usually have one or two days during the week that I am not able to workout because of the chemo side effects.

Rest up, in the form of extra sleep. But work out during the waking hours.

I love working out on the weekends, as I have more time. It gets a little crowded on Saturdays, but Sunday's early in the a.m...I love it.

I like to workout on weekends because I can do it when I wake up instead of doing it after work when I am exhausted.

I think I'm kind of a combination. This weekend I'm planning to rest up though and beat the heat inside.
