Are you sure you "hate" running? I used to hate running as well, before I actually really started doing it. Start off slow with walking/jogging, and if you speed up feel free to slow down if you get tired. You can do it any time and you don't need any equipment (except shoes).

I used to switch between DDR, Zumba, and Wii Fit, and I want to get back to doing some of those, but I don't enjoy them as much as running so it's hard for me to keep up with it like I used to :/.

I do lots of stuff throughout the day that I'm sure keeps me fit. I have a GSD/Malinois mix that I have to take on a long walk daily...normally at least two miles...or he's neurotic. I also take him and the rest of the dogs (Corgis) on a daily walk around our 13 acres. They do much more than me, I just kinda hang back and let them run. I then have all the animals I tend to, fit some riding into the mix, cleaning house, chasing a four year old, lol...lots going on. As far as a strutctured workout, I do a kettlebell class. I try to get in at least 4 days a week. Kettlebells really keep your core strong and you become very aware of your body posture. I find it helps with riding because I know right away if I start to slump or bunch my shoulders up, two things that I have a bad habit with.

Yip, done the running thing - got a few t-shirts and medals as proof!! I looked in good shape back then too, but never got that feel-good moments that everyone always talked about. I never got addicted to it as regular runners always say they are, and hated every moment I was on the road. I only did it because it made me look good in the mirror! Now that I'm past 40, I prefer doing things that I enjoy!

I belong to a gym so I like working out there... I personally like doing cardio and then hopping on the circuit - which is a weight machine then cardio then another specialised machine, cardio etc... in bursts of 40secs on each. It's great fun, and by the end of it I'm so pumped I finish up with swiss ball activites.

However like others have said, I prefer the part where I don't have to get out of bed. I have all the motivation in the world when I'm AT the gym - it's just getting there where I fail.. hehe going tomorrow though!
