    Used to, football mainly. Badminton too - got back into it last year then got knocked off my motorbike by an un-licenced cab driver which resulted in an old knee injury flaring up again.....
    Thinking about having acupuncture again now as that worked before.

    ok does horse-riding count? i tend to ride once a week and walk the dogs most days, so fairly active although avoid running at all costs! thinking about starting step aerobics though and i do swim a lot in the summer after work in the sea - great way to wind down as the dogs join in as well...

    I used to play rugby and go to the gym before taking on this job.

    I coach junior tag-rugby every Sunday to the under 6's and 7's (it's like herding cats!!).
    I coach the adult rugby team every other Sunday, and I play for the adult team on the Sundays we don't train.........
    but I get the most exercise from tidying up after my 3 kids!!!!

    /me looks suspiciously at amy.....

    what SORT of horse riding?

    If it's dressage I'm out of here, I used to go out with a girl who did dressage. Couldn't ask anything about her horse without a 2hour lecture on the ancestry of her horse.

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    I rock climb, mountain bike and blow things outta the sky with my big gun - all very stress relieving!

    None of this football lark - that's a girls game that

    *runs and hides*

    (which incidentally i'm also very good at but dont think hide n seek can be defined as a real sport...yet...and I just started Bonsai as a hobby too)

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    I live next to the beach, so in the summer it's quite easy to go down for a swim around 6-7am/pm when all the tourists have left the beach, is very nice and relaxing, I try and bodyboard when i get the chance, but nothing serious.

    Go for a walk along the prom quite often too!

    I'm also seriously considering getting some rollerblades again, as they we're amazing fun! (i last had rollerblades about 10ish years ago).

    The family got one of those cross-trainer thingys a few years ago, but it's just like that yellow pages advert "my life was really unorganised before i got this equipment" with all the clothes hung on it!

    I always find gym style exercise too boring, i prefer going out and doing stuff that's fun and not just a chore.
