  1. Sorry for the late reply - I was travelling. Ultimately what I want to do is resume skiing, resume playing soccer and basketball. Those are my real highs. Parkour also sounds like fun. I swim to lose weight, because that's what works best. I could easily live without it though.
  2. I don't disagree with you. However, "what you enjoy doing" is relative to your level of fitness. I used to love skiing, but I haven't gone skiing in 5 years because the last few times it was such an ordeal and I felt I was pushing my knees beyond what is safe.

I only did 2 rounds, and the next few days my muscles were so sore it's not fun anymore. (I generally like the soreness as a twisted kind of reward, but this level of sore was just beyond anything I've experienced). It would typically be every 4-5 days, with some running/swimming days and a rest day every so often. This past week I've upped the frequency to every 2nd day, with yoga on off days. These days I c
