The Weekly Fitness Thread Tries Something Different

Don’t adjust your browser, there’s no anime in this week’s post, because this is Krellis filling in for Lutair. (I guess I’m #11 in the picture above, and Lutair is #20.) And like I told Lutair Monday, I don’t hate anime, I just don’t know enough about it to pepper my posts with anime GIFs and references.

Anyway, for this week’s theme, let’s go with stories of when you tried a different activity from your usual thing. So, for example, if you’re like me and (theoretically) a runner, what are some non-running fitness activities you’ve tried? I tried the elliptical once while I was rehabbing from an injury (I think I hated it more than the treadmill, and that’s saying a lot). I’ve tried to get into yoga a couple of times. It hasn’t stuck yet, but I think that’s mostly on me.

And if you tried running and didn’t like it, as long as you gave it a fair chance, I won’t be offended. It’s not for everybody. I sincerely hope you’ve found something that gets you moving and that you love. If it’s running, that’s great, and I can offer advice if you want it, but if it isn’t, that’s OK, I’ll still offer support.

Maybe don’t try boxing.

And while I might not have any anime pictures in here, I really can’t think of a better way to end this post than with what Lutair normally closes with: “As well as the weekly topic, feel free to discuss your progress, missteps, and goals. Remember that this thread is about encouraging each other to do better. Be safe, be smart, be kind; to others and to yourselves.”
