I was recently closely following the post, and all the responses, on excercise. Like so many others, it seems, I am not naturally athletic or sporty, but have always liked to keep active. However, that has now become harder, in part, I suppose, as I am getting older so also more tired.
For the first time this year I have struggled with breathlessness in cold weather, something I find really irksome as I grew up in a very cold climate (northern Scandinavia), but there it is. I am aware of all the ‘tricks’ like Ventolin before going out walking, warm up, start slowly, and scarfe over face and all that - though I would feel a bit silly doing warmups before popping in to the local Coop, just 3-4 minutes away.....
Anyway, it seems increasingly clear that in cold weather my excercising is better done indoors. So far I do yoga regularly - it helps my breathing, circle dancing, and very occasionally a bit of bouldering, but since a friend got into a considerable amount of back pain following a small, but unfortunate slip, I have got a bit frightened of it. Bouldering certainly can build many muscles in your body, and it is certainly not repetitive. You have to focus on what you are doing, so it is not boring. For me gyms are mind-bogglingly boring, so I have really struggled with it.
Just to fire up my imagination, please let me know what is your favourite indoor activity. I am looking for the less common, not so much the standard go-to like swimming and Zumba and all that. If it brings a smile to my face, so much the better! I look forward to all sorts of weird suggestions.........but no intimate details of a sexual nature please!
