Does Bschool give enough time to hit the GYM and burn flab!!
How are you folks managing.....
It has been very difficult to have a structured workout routine. However, I have found that as the semester has progressed I have been able to fit more time for the gym into my week. Either things are slowing down or I am improving my time management!
It's been pretty impossible here the first two quarters for people interested in banking or consulting. The recruiting schedule is just crushing. I'll signs suggest that things will be much more manageable after January. Banking and consulting recruiting wraps up by the end of the month, and those with jobs should have considerably more free time. And second years have plenty of free time on their hands. There are at least 5 country clubs that I know of within 10 miles, including 3 not more than two miles away, and a lot of 2Ys sign up for memberships. One of the local clubs offers unlimited play for students for about $400 per semester. I'm doing that next year for sure.
It's a really nice golf course. $395 per semester, all you can play. It would probably cost $75 a round in the Bay Area. There are a bunch not more that 10 miles away, and the weather is definitely nice enough outside to be playing right now.
We have a few descent courses around here but you'd have to be nuts or diehard to play golf in 40 degree (F) weather.
Our campus has a fully equipped athletic center, complete with four weight training rooms, racketball courts, pools, soccer fields, basketball, martial arts/yoga studios and even a sports bar with a 105" HDTV. It got pretty wild in there during football season.
Even with such fantastic facilities available, I can only muster 1~2 workouts a week because of team committments and networking etc. I'm not sure how they do it, but there are about a dozen guys that squeeze in a 45 min workout every morning.
The key to working out around here seems to be to read cases while running on the treadmill.
Another option is to just find time to work out. I have a classmate who does 45 min sessions during lunch break. Other people (like myself) are targetting jobs which are not so time consuming in terms of events and therefore have time to do other stuff.
She mentions reading on the elliptical machine, which, as cumbersome as it may seem, is not impossible. But running on a treadmill and reading is downright amazing.
By the way L, how has the weather in Boston been recently? Colder than when I was out last month or about the same? We've been pummeled with rain for the past week and still haven't seen the sun since Thanksgiving.
until i got hit by that car, i was riding my back to and from school every day. It's a little hilly, so with 40 minutes of biking a day, I was in pretty good shape. I think I was one of the few to lose weight while at school. I've only started biking again a couple weeks ago, though, and managed to re-acquaint myself with about half the weight I'd lost.
