My Exercise Personality! (THANKS BONNIE)

Mostly Fs: Hardcore Exerciser (Out of 8 questions 6 of them were F's - WOW - but I this is SO TRUE)
Pros: Hardcore exercisers are intrinsically motivated to do their best and reach their goals. Whether it's running a marathon, swimming a mile or dead-lifting twice your weight, you can do anything you put your mind to!

Cons: Because you are so committed to your fitness and your goals, sometimes you have trouble taking a day off or ignore signs that your body might be in danger of injury or overuse.

How to make the most of it: Keep taking on those big ambitious goals, but be sure to work in at least a day (or two!) of recovery each week. Never do two really intense workouts on consecutive days. You don't have to push it to your max every day--in fact, you'll improve your performance by giving your body time to recover. Try swapping a weight-lifting session out for some power yoga, or go for an outdoor hike instead of running sprints. Your body and mind will thank you!

    Most of my answers were 'As', so multitasker for me. That doesn't surprise me, even being retired, I'm still juggling my life.
