Throwback Thursday: What new hobby/sport have you picked up recently? #TBT

It's Thursday!

Last fall, couple of guys in my street invited me to play pickleball in a park nearby. We met up at the mail boxes at 11:30 and drove to the part together (only about 10 min away) and played until 12:45 or so, to be back home by 1:00 to go back to work. I had heard about pickleball and these courts seemed to be popping up all over the place but I didn´t know the sport. Anywho, I went along and had a...

We went for a couple of weeks but then winter set in. I couldn´t wait to start again this past sprint. We try to go every week now. It is so much fun!

I first witnessed pickleball down in Spain years ago... I kinda laughed at it. Pretending to be something like tennis or maybe squash, but not really either. More the fool me though, because years later Padel is now the fastest growing sport in the world - and I recently saw a Padel raquet in the local shops for four-flocking-hundred euros. Aiiiiii caramba!

The world finals recently were good craic as well! Fascinating. Amazing tactics and skill required. Fitness paramount of course.

I've recently caught the Daily Walk bug... seen it so much on social media in recent years, so when someone sent me an invite, I dive right in to see what all the fuss is about... as you can see from my Twitter post this morning, I'm on day 35 day streak. So far I don't really feel the benefits, but hey ho, the gamification is awesome, I'm always #1 in the rankings and apparently it could take up to 266 days before such benefits become reality... reversing many years of poor eating habits and what not takes time.

If anyone wants to try it out (the English version is exemplary!!) then feel free to do so (and help me gain a badge. Hehe!)

I just started 2 new hobbies! What an awesome question

1. Hitting the gym- I get anxious in particular social situations, but as one of my 2022 goals, I told myself I would at least make an attempt before dismissing it completely. Now I like it! Going to just stay active, especially WFH.

2. Google restaurant reviews- I love to support local shops and such, and have always wanted to be a sort of local guide. Especially for hidden gems or hole-in-the-wall places.

This one is not a NEW hobby per-se, but a twist on an existing one.

I have been an avid cyclist for the past six years, but my wife was not. She recently got more into cycling herself though. Since she is a school teacher she has off for the summer and tries to get out 4-5 mornings a week for a 20-25 mile ride along the Far Rockaway Boardwalk or the estates in Back Lawrence-Hewlett Harbor (both within minutes of our home).

When my schedule permits I join her. It may be slower and shorter than my normal group rides with the local cycling club, but it's always more enjoyable!
