Happy Tuesday! Sometimes it seems like all runners talk about is…running (shocker)! But contrary to popular belief, we do things besides run. I enjoy lots of other forms of exercise, and a few other hobbies as well.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are some of your favorite non-running hobbies? You can write about this topic, or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
Here are just a few of my favorite non-running activities/hobbies.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, this should come as no surprise! I absolutely love strength training – sometimes I like it more than running. I love feeling strong after a hard workout lifting weights. Not only does this make me a stronger runner, it also makes me stronger overall.
When I first started going to the gym, Zumba was my first love, followed by Spinning (running started a few years later). Did you know that I was a certified spinning instructor? I even taught spinning at my gym for a year and then I realized that I much prefer taking classes vs. teaching them. What I love about spinning is that it’s a great cardio workout, builds endurance and it’s less stressful on your joints. Using the Peloton bike for the last year has really made me love spinning even more. Also I find that taking a spin class the day after a long run always helps to decrease my soreness!
Have you ever seen that show Extreme Couponing? Well I’m not that crazed over coupons BUT I do use them quite regularly, especially when grocery shopping. About 10 years ago I was unemployed and I really utilized coupons to make my money stretch further and that mindset just stuck with me. I think it’s a good hobby because it keeps more money in my pocket 🙂
