What other activities, hobbies, or sports do you do outside of riding?
I’m glad it morphed into the broader topic, away from asking just about what we do to stay in shape, because I am slow and uncoordinated and don’t play all that well with others. No team sports for me. And the gym? Nope. I’ve tried a handful of different gyms, having a personal trainer, taking fitness classes of various fitness-y activities, and NONE of it sticks. I can’t run. I don’t like to lift anything. Riding a bike makes me uncomfortable. I very likely will fall on my face if I try to throw, catch, or kick a ball. Being in any orientation other than where the horizon is a nice, flat, perfectly horizontal line (sky up/ground down) will cause me to barf or pass out or both. Even looking at mountains makes me feel lightheaded, although I do rather enjoy the novelty of that.
Why I don’t get motion sickness while riding a horse, but do on basically any other mode of transport, including escalators, I have never figured out. Riding IS my exercise.
I kind of like swimming, if this counts:
I read a lot. I’m mildly obsessed with fashion. Sometimes I play fantasy football. Day trips into the hill country are fun, because they usually involve wine tastings. I relish a seat at the opera. I’ll go antiquing. I like to know how things work, and where things come from. I would probably enjoy ghost hunting. I live on coffee. My day job? I’m a librarian. Total shock, I’m sure, after everything you just read.
