I find it interesting that y'all like swimming but not running..and talking about that pushing too hard and vomiting thing because I used to be a swimmer and I would have 10-12 sessions a week, and usually all of us in the squad would throw up once or twice in at least 50% of the sessions it's killer.

Re: Ana's little posse: Introduction/Off-topic thread!!!

i used to keep myself fit with cycling and mountainbiking. i hated and still hate running because it's boring. on a bike you at least get somewhere. in order to make it work you really have to move with a lot of pace or uphill and i am lucky to be close to places where this is possible. plenty of people believe they are doing something for their fitness while cycling but in reality it's just like a little walk in the park.

nowadays i play touch rugby. it's fun and good for your fitness.

The issue with running is that it really boring.

I like cycling, but I'd have to go to the park to do it, and its not very close.. so I end up going to the gym. But mountainbiking is certainly more fun than cycling on those gym bikes.

Maybe that's it! But if you look at our volleyball team, for an example, most have light skin.. I think we are extremely mixed.. everyone has a big of african and native heritage, even if it doesn't show, because its so mixed with european heritage.

Funny, our coach was always happy when we threw up...because it meant we were working really hard Running is boring, but so is just continuous swimming freestyle back and forward...I think it's more fun if you break either of them up into sets of different things...keep your mind working

It does mean that you were working beyond your limits. It isn't good from a medical point of view though.

Sure.. anything that is repetitive tends to be boring.. best is to mix things to keep it entertaining.

yeah, but even with mountainbiking or road cycling you need to mix it up. if you bike on the same route every time even that can get boring. i have a gym bike at home and i usually train on it while watching a football game and that can be quite alright.

well, the first person people think about when someone mentions brazilians is pelé. and volleyball is nowhere near as popular as football. but yeah, brazlians are very mixed. it's just that so many people are unaware that european heritage clearly dominates that mix.

Yes.. I usually watch the news on TV at the gym.. or some novela. They always have the TV on.

Definitely... I would say the average common brazilian is much more like Kaká then like Pelé. But its all really mixed.. we have all kinds of looks here..

Re: Ana's little posse: Introduction/Off-topic thread!!!

speaking of different sports, today i saw some weird game being played on a basque tv channel.



i wondered if that would be that "basque pelota" game and google confirmed it. what a weird game. cajka, this surely must beat aussie rules football in that regard?

Re: Ana's little posse: Introduction/Off-topic thread!!!

Well whether a sport is weird depends on how familiar you are with it... my family once met two Americans who passed by a cricket club in Hong Kong (where I live) and asked why they were playing baseball with square bats.

it's certainly true and i guess most of the sports spread globally from england and the us, so sports developed elsewhere are not well-known, like basque pelota. however, there are even some olympic sports i consider weird (curling, for example).

Re: Ana's little posse: Introduction/Off-topic thread!!!

Curling You know how a lot of sports tend to have some sort of historical significance, related to the society of that time, like javelin, discus, or archery may be related to the military tradition of Ancient Greece... I guess the inspiration behind curling is doing housework.

golf is definitely among the most boring sports to watch, though i can see it being fun to play. curling is just weird.
