Hey 👋 who works out here?

Hello everyone, 

So, I got myself in such difficulty…
the good news is that, I’m taking back up my favourite hobby, ice hockey, which I have been doing since I was 8, but left at 16 due to mum didn’t want to pay for me… so after working hard, and got myself a car, my new gear, I’m ready to go back! 

But, after a training session, my god, I never got so tired so constantly after hard pushing, and this was 2 hours of hard training. Bare in mind I was under 16 when I left, I’m playing with much older people and fitter people. (Stamina wise)

I can easily blame my work outs, I have been more lazy, I also have got a gf to try to spend time with as well as work most hours on weekdays, so far my work out is:

Thursday: Skating
Weekends: ice hockey training.

 I’m now cutting off sugar, I don’t drink fizzy anyway, but probably not enough water,

is there anyone out there, can help me get better in cardio or what are their routines to stay fit or more fit? YouTubing this gave me so mixture reviews, so I thought to ask a nice community here :) 

would really appreciate it 🥺😇

    @Sparrow94 hi and welcome to our community, my older advice would be to ease your self back into it at your own pace and don't expect too much too soon
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.

    Hello @Sparrow94 and a warm welcome from me too.

    Good on you for returning to a sport you love and I'm not surprised those initial workouts have left you feeling exhausted.  It will take time to build your stamina back up to the levels it was when you were younger - bearing in mind you're that wee bit older too!  So, don't push yourself as this might induce an injury and give yourself credit for taking your hobbies back up again.  At this point it's about enjoying the experience, and your cardio levels will no doubt creep back up after practice.  

    I used to run 3 x 5k's each week and absolutely loved it, but that has come to a halt as I'm now 6 months pregnant.  No doubt when I return to putting on my running shoes I'll be in the same position!  I'm hoping muscle memory will kick in or, failing that, good old perseverance!

    In terms of cardio routines, do you have any impairments that would need accommodating?  You don't have to share if you don't wish, but just not to direct you towards something inappropriate.  Also, increasing your water intake sounds like a fab idea!

    Oh thanks for the advice, I don't have major disabilities besides minor autism, which doesn't affect workouts and such, and oh nice! I never done running before, (besides the school fields and such) I would think people would judge,  

    I also started drinking more water, i suffer with acne on face, constant spots showing once i thought i got rid of them, and water is one of the fixes, 

    And congratulations!

    That's what I'm thinking, i went ice skating on Thursday, and boy, i felt so unhealthy to compare to how i was before, used to do a lot of ice skating and was really fast, but being back on Thursday, i just couldn't do it, was an odd feeling. so i will take it slow
