Hey Dharma-Dev The thought of going for a run in bedroom slippers makes me smile but........ hey when I started getting out of running shoes I used to slip a pair of old socks on when I was transitioning to barefoot running :-)
I forgot to mention Dog Mushing and Ski Juring - which is one person on skis getting pulled by one or more dogs on a long lead. I have about 4 friends who regularly have their Huskies pull them on skis.
We have the popular american sports: basketball, football, soccer, and Hockey is very popular. Frisbee is becoming bigger each year. But I dont care for those except for the occasional passing of a soccer ball.
Crosscountry stuff is the biggest. In the winter XC skiing is Huge, and a ton of 20+ Km runners up here. They keep going no matter the temperature. People are out on the roads on bikes and even more on our downhill trails we got going thu the woods and the hills. we turn out really good skiers at the University here and we have an anual 40k race on Autumn Equinox that runs by my house.
I personally like taking the woods trails down and up steep hills in a pair of bedroom slippers, but they get torn up real fast. Looking into better options for minimalist Running, the barefoot isnt such a good idea cus we have such untamed trails.
I've been doin 10k bike rides each day just commuting and havin fun goin about 80-100% effort. Dont know what it is but I can never ride the bike at a slow speed, just get too impatient.
Also me and my mates have a small stick fighting/ sparring group. The Yoga crowd up here is big also, and I teach classes twice per week.
Some of the runs you can look up to see the runners times in Fairbanks Alaska are: The Equinox Marathon, The Midnight Sun Run, Chena River Run, and lots of Nordic Skiing Races.
Theres maybe only about 5 dedicated people on Bikes in the middle of Winter. Im not one of them, but I do enjoy occasional rides in the winter. The commute for us on the bike is 30k per day with only about 5k of that being on hills. So we have big rides with out even trying.
Dude...studded tyres..that is dedication to getting out on the bike. Fairbanks Alaska sounds like a cold end of the world.
Dharma-Dev please share what is the the local sport scene is like in your end of the world, what is the main activity.
Checkin out the Raw Food Bare foot website its great. thanks for that podcast link.
May 4th today, up in Fairbanks Alaska, and JUST took the studded tires of my IronHorse Racing bike. The snow is still on the ground, very unusual, should have been mostly gone 3 weeks ago. looking forward to riding on the dry sidewalks and roads and hittin the trails when they arent pure mud - but that will have to wait a while.
Yeah that is true, for the timebeing I am thinking to carry on with 40 lap freestyle, coz I started swimming again after 6 years, I just want my body to adjust for now, I am thinking to mix few drills, different strokes and change in tempo :)
If you are swimming just to feel good in the water then keep it up. If you are swimming to get faster time or fitness, you will have to mix it up more than plod through 40 laps a day.
In saying that if you are doing 30 s per 25m you're doing well, but a combination of drills, kickboard, and intensity sets gives you great results.
Hi Watzzupsport Yeah it's nice to swim, low impact and a full body work out. I am doing 40 continuous laps of freestyle in a 25 meter pool everyday Feels so nice.
Welcome to30 Bananas a Day!
