What after 5K?

    I love my breakfast-yoga-5k routine and I really don't want to go to 10.
    I run 5K 3 x a week
    1 40K mountain bike ride for cardio results.
    I think I have enough stretchy endurance type exercise in my life.
    I feel I have some room for more, though.

    I'm thinking about going back to the gym 3 times a week just to fill out a little bit until late spring because then I need my time back to take care of the orchard and the animals. I can't get out of that.

    I work FT on a irregular schedule and I own a farm so when I say there are time constraints it's not an excuse. I want to take care of myself and enjoy working out but I can't do a gym routine in earnest all year.
    I have to drive 40 minutes to get to a gym so one visit means half a day and I don't have enough half days in the season to stick to a routine.

    I don't have to bulky. I like a bit of a leaner look but not quite the way I am now which is just your basic skinny runner look.
    Maybe should I just max out the card and get gym stuff at home?

    Where do you want to go next with your exercisation.

    Considering your needs and busy schedule, I would suggest getting free weights and using them at home.

    Calisthenics and/or bodyweight routines might suit your situation, rounding out your program without heavy gym travel or expenditure. Lots of examples on YouTube. Haven't tried any myself but like the idea.

    Then don't.
