On some level, we don’t do fitness for reasons, or at least not the kind that make a handy list. We do it because we like it. Maybe not every second of it, but we like it. And one thing leads to another.
I love my bike. The better shape I’m in, cardio-wise, the more fun it is to ride my bike, so I end up doing spin or elliptical training or (trying to) run or swimming to cross-train. The stronger I am, the faster I can get up the hills, so there I am, lifting weights. Then there is that whole day-after feeling of tightness and I need to say hello to my Pilates equipment and my yoga mat.
But every time, what I go back to is the pedaling, the pure joy of being outside, moving, in the sun and wind. That’s why I do it.
Why do you?
