What sports are you good at?
The real question is what sports am I not good at.
Welcome to the forum Masha =).
I used to be a figure skater, tennis player, swimmer, ballerina, and really active in school sports --when I was a youth and teen — now walking and doing some Youtube exercise videos is all the “sports” I am doing! haha.
Born strongly left handed and forced to be right handed by old school parents who thought life would be easier for a right hander… Not understanding that our brains are wired to our bodies in a certain way, for good reason. Whacked out my hand eye coordination, in such drastic ways, it would take me all night and 20 pages to explain it.
Long story short, I could never hit, kick, or throw a ball to save my freaking life !
But if you want to call fishing a sport, I’ve completely excelled at that, to pro level… Several sponsors and all
The channels or couches?
none. don’t like mostly any of them, lol
I hike, bike, kayak, swim all for fun, ride my horses. Never ‘did sports’. I hate to run at any time and a lot of sports around were running things LOL not interested.
None. Yup the chic that can do this-
Was the girl picked last in high school gym class. I was not good at anything. I still remember being in gym class wishing someone would pick me for their team. Nope. But I think now in the apocalypse, I’d be picked for a survival team…
While I enjoy running I have cut back a bit to just one or two days a week from my old six day 30 miles a week. I like to tinker with things to see what happens (weight has remained steady with the reduction). My favorite sport and what I am best at is Skiing. I really enjoy tree skiing in powder. It is a thrill to be forced to pick a path that only reveals itself as you turn past the previous tree.
What happened Scott, are you having joint problems?
I don’t know what happened. I was running six days a week and slowed down a bit only to ramp back up to see if I could lose about five pounds more. The scale stayed at the same number so I decided why beat myself up every morning. My intention was to go every other day but that became once a week. First ski trip is end of January so I better get it back in gear.
Does child-wrangling count?
I am 6’0 with a 30 inch inseam (short legs for that height). I look good on a horse but the torso has few advantages in sport. Except for the “sack race”. I rule that world.
Lying on the couch!!
I’m not really “good” at any sport. Started out as a body builder, then realized that while I got bigger and stronger by lifting, I was never going to be a good body builder. You need – as with all sports – genetics for that.
Then I started biking, mountain biking and then racing biking. Again, to be good at those, you need the genetics I don’t have, and you don’t see many (any) good cyclists with large muscles. I also kept lifting, and trying to do both meant that one always suffered. Got bigger muscles? Go slower on the bike. Did more riding? Weights on leg exercises typically went down.
I also liked tennis, but you have to have genetics, including height for that.
I still exercise, now 5 days a weeks, 3 days body weight training, 2 days jogging with the dog. But I’m not sure I’m “good” at those either, though I do like them.
None but I like and do some and they do me good and that’s what matters.
I like walking most (it may be not a sport in the way I do it but it’s exercise :D) but the scenery should be nice. I am less choosy about weather but it should be below 25C (and over -10 or -20, I don’t know). I quite like cycling in the forest as well but nothing beats walking/hiking. But they are different, I need both and lifting too.
