Ways to Get Fit

Not many people don’t think they could be in slightly better shape.  In my quest to get in better shape (a long, hard, marginally successful quest) I often run into the boredom problem.  I need variety or I start to dread the workouts.

Today (7/31/10) I saw some dragon boat races at Rockett’s Landing.  What are they?  That’s why I included the picture.  It turns out to be a subculture of sorts.  This I gathered from walking around the shore as the races were ongoing.  I may be wrong here, but there seemed to be some real enthusiasts in the bunch.  It was a feel good event as well.  Many of the teams were made up of people who were out there to contribute to a cause.  But it occurred to me this couldn’t be something you showed up for on race day for the first time.  Some, or maybe a lot, of training was needed.  That training must be tough!

What’s my take home?  If I’m creative I shouldn’t be able to use the boredom excuse to avoid conditioning.
