And a new one just begun

  1. I’m excited about getting back into cooking this year too and the cookbook blog is good motivation.

    As for exercise, I’ve loved the spinning classes I’ve taken and used to go regularly when I had a gym membership – if you find a good one, let me know! Running clinics are good too… you don’t necessarily have to train for an event, although that helps. I think most groups meet twice a week and then have a longer run on the weekends. I never used to like running with other people, but in the last few years it’s what I prefer.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. As for the regular exercise thing, I used to coach “Masters”, a 2-3 x week group for new and returning swimmers up at SFU, back when I went to school there.

    If you are serious about improving your swimmming skills, I highly recommend this so have a look around at the pools either by your workplace or where you live (convenience). UBC or the Vancouver Aquatic Centre should offer them and talk to the coaches that run them. At SFU we had a lane for newbies, and a lane for triathletes, so the workouts were tailored to ability. Good coaches should be giving you at least one tip/thing to work on.

    Good luck!

  3. Maybe not up your alley but I really really enjoyed belly dancing because it’s something that helps with your coordination, balance, and flexibility. It’s also *FUN* which was one of my main requirements for taking any kind of active class. Generally classes are taught in different levels so you can work your way up in difficulty. It also teaches you to do amazing things with your arms independent from the rest of your body. I really enjoyed learning to isolate different muscle groups and then move them in ways that most other things don’t allow you to. Plus? Pretty. 😉
