This week, the topic is: Fitness Trends
Well, I tried to think of one that I do participate in but I could not.
I guess I am a pretty traditional runner.
So here are FIVE trends that I will most likely never participate in:
1. Ragnar Races
I know that they are popular and everyone says that they are so much fun. But…
- I don’t want to run at night…by myself
- I don’t enjoy sleeping in a van or a tent
- I don’t think my body can handle all that mileage in one weekend
They always seem like a good idea but I have a hard time motivating myself to run a few times a week never mind running or planking EVERYDAY!!
3. Color or Themed Runs
I am a competitive person by nature and when I run a race, I want to do my best. I know it sounds like fun to have color or foam thrown at you, but it’s just not something I want to pay to do.
4. Warrior or Spartan Races
I am way too old and too clumsy to do one of these races. I know for sure that I would get injured. Plus I am sure that I could not climb the wall, jump over fire and complete most of the obstacles.
5. Virtual Races
I know that it’s fun to get the bling. Plus they raise money for great causes. But if I spend the money, I want to compete in a race with other runners. What I enjoy most at a race is the competition and the camaraderie among the runners.
Happy Running? Which trends do you participate in? Are there any that you would not?
