Great stuff, well done. Trail running (we call it cross country!) is a great way of exercising.

I would sooner enter one of the torture chambers of The Spanish Inquisition than enter a gym and indulge in this fitness mania. Lots of ways to keep fit without using one of those places !

Haha, I'd agree, except I don't know many cross country runners who are constantly running 15+ miles while climbing a total of 2,000ft minimum on rocks and stuff!

I suppose where you live might dictate how many you know. Here in the Pyrenees it is quite common.

I was obviously aware of peloton, but didn’t know they had an app. $13 a month seems reasonable to see if I can keep this up, so excercise bike, cadence sensor, heart rate monitor incoming and an old tv and I’ve got peloton lite! Really excited about this, and the classes look like they will keep me motivated. If I find myself using this enough, I’ll probably fork out for the bike and the full membership next year.




I've got a similar setup using zwift, sits next to my erg.

I'm 3 weeks into a million meter rowing challenge. Managing to most of it on the water in a single or 2x but erg is handy to top up the odd 5-10k meters a day. Bike is for a change...

I hate the gym too, but it's only $9 a month at my local one. I've tried running on the walking trails and it knackers my knees, which a treadmill doesn't and the trails out here aren't really great for running with the mud/ice/snow till later in the spring. Definitely lesser of the evils, plus don't have room to have decent gear at home.
I'd not really bother if we were curling, but I really don't see that happening this season.
