beside work or school. Sitting at work and sitting while playing FB is not very healthy. Is any of you good in sport.

I'm taking up sailing. I guess it's not much of a sport, but desperately needed time away from the pc. Used to play golf, didn't like it much. Soccer when we can get enough people together to play. Basketball, thought I don't like it much. Race cars once in a while. I swim a lot though, love water.

I run about 4km every day and go to gym 4-5 days a week. But I'm short on time now so something of the will be reduced(probably FB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif). Am I good at sport... dunno 'cause I do it on recreation basis (or maybe little above http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/93.gif).

Hiking, Fishing (Not really sports but what the hey). I tend to be sporadic sport wise, I've done alot of horse riding and some Hang Gliding. I've been getting lazy so recently decided to do something about it, I got on a horse for the first time in about 5 years last month.

I get on the bicycle on a fairly regular basis. I was out of action for a while and aren't "on form". Usually do 30-40 miles and average about 16 1/2 - 17 mph. My friends & I are gearing up for a 62 mile ride in mid July. My fastest ever in a flat sprint (with the wind) was 34 mph. Believe me, it didn't stay there long esp with the heartrate around 190 bpm and gasping for air.

Used to be a motorcycle racer a long time ago. Now inline speedskating. Train in the gym a couple of times a week. Ski when I can. By the way, the name ping-pong was the trade name of the first commercially available table tennis set and was made in America in the early 1900's.

For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

We've got a small baseball orginization here in Columbia MO. So this year, being our last year of high-school, and our last summer before everyone dissapears to college, my friends and i got together a baseball team, and decided, to feel real manly, we'd be the Flamingos. So every game we strut out onto the field, decked out in pink, all the players have their various pink items. We've all got Jerseys and Socks, but my friend Grant's got a pink hat that looks nice, and my friend Nick's got a pink yankees hat he loves...

That's an art i'm really looking forward to training in. Right now I want to concentrate only on hand-to-hand, my reaction time could use some improvement. After sparring with my Sensei this week that has become all the more evident. One second he's totally calm, the next he's jumping at me while striking wildly. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
Thinking back i'm sure he was only seeing how I would react to the situation (as he hit me pretty softly...nothing like the punches to the heart i've recieved in the past..strange sensation that is), but at the time it was quite intimidating. I can imagine what fighting my Sensei in Kendo would be like http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

I've played volleyball for 23 years now, but I realize that my knees and right shoulder is nearing the end of their carreer, as they ache longer and longer after each training.. the constant strain of jumping and smashing has taken it's toll.
In the winter I really enjoy skiing, and finally my son has grown old enough to get along, so I guess it will be quite some alpine and cross-country skiing next winter.

My Sensei always say that Kendo is the Art requiring most speed and reaction... but more important is to first win and then strike! Sometimes I feel a bit frustrated because seems impossible to became reactive as he is... You can really see energy, an explosion of energy when he strikes... not a bit before nor later... it's like a spark...

I hold the English national record for crawling home from the pub........ 4 miles I believe http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I attemped to take the German National record some years ago but passed out about 1/2 way home.... My Gibralter attempt was thwarted by the proximity of the Bars to my Barracks at the time..... Sardinian attempt resulted in severe sunburn and having to pull out of the competition.... Canadian attempt, near Hypothermia resulted in a taxi ride... Belize attempt..........well as the main river in Belize city Doubled as the main sewer I refrained from trying..... Swiss attempt did not count as we used bin bags to get down the mountain back to the hostel... Denmarks attempt failed due to the cost of their Alcohol... Dutch attempt was thwarted by Border police refusing to let us all crawl over the border crossing back into Germany...
Several others I better not mention, so I suppose i hold just the unofficial UK record http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Sports? What the hell is that?

No sports for me. My job is ridiculously physical enough. My sport is couch lying, movie watching and ice cream eating.

I lift weights a bit, do some push-ups and so on, buit I don't really like sports.

But we do play Frisbee with tire hubcaps at the logyard sometimes. That has to count. (Wear gloves! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif)

I play paintball but I hate people who cheat by turning up the power in their gun &gt;_&lt;

I can't run for no reason and paintball gives me a good reason.

cheaters can kill or totally screw you up in paintball...I learned my lesson not to stick around when someone cheating or sick the cops on em for intentially trying to cause physical harm.

In the winter I play hockey 2-3 times a week. In the summer I umpire fastpitch softball up to university level and baseball up to the senior level. This keeps me active.

The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

Ju-Jitsu was my main sport. I was British Champion until I smashed my knee while Mountain Biking, and had to retire (at 32). Oh and Mountain Biking, to get my fitness back after I smashed.....my.......knee.....while...Mountain biking....hmmm, there's wisdom for you! Weight train 5 times a week, not to build, just to tone.
I also fly kites, which in a strong wind keeps your arms strong. And as for MTB, as someone pointed out before, that is the single most expensive 'hobby' item I've ever bought. ‚£2500 for a Gary Fisher, Sugar. Which in the USA would be about $2500, which in the UK would be about ‚£1400, so go-figure the fairness of British taxation and import rates!
Cheers, Neil.

Well d'uh. Basketball players are too tall for the cockpits http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Besides, they would have the unfair advantage of seeing over the dashboard of the FW-190 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif

As for myself, I play free safety for one of our local American football teams.

I fence with sabre and foil. Not competitively anymore after racking up a knee in a chase and fight, and I'd rather risk having that sort of thing happen as an on the job injury than hobby injury. Great lifetime sport, as I get older I just get smarter and can still beat all those young college fencers that come to the club. Competed for 5 years and have been fencing for about 15 years. Other than that I have target shooting and playing with my kids.

The greatest fencer in France fears not the second greatest fencer, but the worst.


I often think the whole world is out to get me, but then I remember that some of the smaller nations are neutral.

Well.. its not really a sport more like skill. I road race and autocross, and someday run in SCCA Pro events. With a Mazdaspeed Miata Cup Car (once it's built lol). It's not a "cheap" sport to run in. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif

Softball (baseball for us old guys who drink too much), hiking, golf, the occasional hockey game.

Used to run every day and played hockey every week.

Any Hashers out there?
