Re: How much do you train??
before having this stupid ACL accident, I trained:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday => 4 x 1,5 h
+ one seminar per month.
Then there was a long break, and then I started training only on Saturdays, but not as a regular student but as substitute teacher for our kids' professor who has also knee problems, but worse than mine.
Now I'm back to nearly normal (and participated again to a seminar!), but it turned out that in meantime the kids' school and music school schedules changed so that unfortunately I have to stay at home most Mondays to help them with homework.
But I think 4 x a week is fine. That allows you to have much fun and still not neglect the family (twice a week there is parallel kids' training...).
