A few years ago, if I didn't train for at least an hour a day, it felt like a wasted day. Waking up at 4:30 to run or bike, hitting the gym over lunch, and maybe heading to the pool for some laps. In 2014 and 2015, an average week for me was about 8 hours of cardio per week.
Fast forward to 2018, and after 2 kids, a major health problem (and resulting surgery and 6 months of treatment), and I'm very happy just to work out at all on a given day. Even 20 minutes.
