Today’s topic is: A new hobby I’m trying or would like to try
This is a tough one for me. Honestly, I’m too busy to even do my old hobbies! I suppose if you forced me to come up with something it would be jogging. Is that a hobby?
See… jogging a 5k is on my to-do list for this year. And that would actually require some training, real training. Yanno, like jogging nearly every day of the week. This is not something I currently do. I want to. Every day I’m determined to make the time to…and then something happens (today it was my panicked mom who is 86 years-old calling me that her car wouldn’t start and needing help). So, I have to figure out how to make it happen every day AND make it fun.
I do find that when I’m watching a TV show that’s particularly interesting, the time on the treadmill absolutely flies by. But if not, it’s tortuously long. I can’t run outside much of the year–I’ll walk in the winter, mostly, but I won’t risk hitting a slippery spot while I’m jogging. I break a whole lot easier than I used to. And in the summer, it’s too dang hot most of the time. So, I’m relegated to a treadmill.
Any ideas on making that more fun? If not, any suggestions on a good show or movie to watch? I’m not easy to entertain…
