Friday Five: Exercise

Sophia offers up this week's Friday Five!

1. What was your favorite sport or outdoor activity as a child?
That would depend on the season! In the summer I loved riding my bike, playing baseball with the neighborhood kids, and water skiing. In the winter I loved ice skating, sledding, etc.

2. P.E. class--heaven or the other place?
I suppose it was mostly heaven because we did some fun things like jump on the trampoline and play basketball. But the hell aspect was wearing goofy uniforms and doing warm up exercises to a song that had the words "Go you chicken fat, go"

3. What is your favorite form of exercise now?
Riding my bike. (Although I like hiking and snowshoeing too.)

4. Do you like to work out solo or with a partner?
I don't think what I do can be called 'working out' -- but if it's bike riding I mostly go solo and if it's hiking or snowshoeing I go with Hubby.

5. Inside or outside?
OUTSIDE!

Bonus: Post a poem, scripture passage, quotation, song, etc. regarding the body or exercise.

In the words of Grover (whom I truly love), "tickling is also exercise":

Snowshoeing? I'm impressed.

I had totally forgotten about skiing. Did that a lot as a child!

Pastor Joelle said...

OH MAN! I haven't thought about "Go you Chicken Fat Go" since, probably the last time we had to sing it!

It sounds like you see it more as play than exercise-- how nice!

RevDrKate said...

Ah, yes, the gym uniforms, weren't we lovely?

gym uniforms...trying to pull the sweaty t-shirt off first always gave me a galloping case of claustrophobia.

What a cute video! Of course, "outside" is nice for you in WA State! And I am also impressed with snowshoeing.

As always...enjoy your words and your sense of humor.

dolcejava perked up when i mentioned you & hubby are big time hikers... i think a hiker/blogger meetup in your neck of the woods will totally happen someday. but i'm not gonna wear a goofy uniform or uhm... sing "go chicken fat go"???

hotcup, that would be cool! We've got some great hiking places! (And "go you chicken fat, go" is not a song we frequently sing.)

I'm so relieved we never had to exercise to "Go You Chicken Fat, Go"

I was not a fan of PE. (I was the proverbial last kid chosen.)
