How do you fill the March sadness void? Here the Fit Feminist Team is trying new things

Sometimes McSweenys gets it just right. Take their March Sadness story. “The only way to play is to pick your saddest seeds and take solace in knowing all of this is temporary. There are no winners. We are all losers until April. But we and our bad skin are in it together. “

Me, I’m buying new plants to fill the void. (One of the McSweeney’s suggestions.)

But around the blog it seems we are also all trying new things.

Catherine is the new things rockstar, trying Parkour and Ariel Silks. Go Catherine! Go Catherine!

Me, I branched out to Orange Theory earlier this winter and Zwift. (Zwift stuck and OT didn’t but next winter, maybe.)

Cate tried out a local crossfit style gym near her house.

And then Cheryl tried a circus class.

There’s a class I’ve been tempted by at the university’s fitness centre. It seems to involve banging sticks together.

How about you? Anything new on your fitness calendar this March?

  1. What about axe throwing? Sam, have you tried it? I am thinking of having an axe throwing birthday party for myself this year, as there is a place in the area. See, we’ve barely scratched the surface (as it were…) of new activities.

    1. Axe throwing is fun! I tried it, but not in March, in February. Humbling, in a good way.

  2. So it’s not just me feeling this way, it’s a March thing?? Whew. (Despite some sun and signs of spring, feeling a sort of sadness void.)

  3. Good to hear that I’m not alone! Started handstand classes this month and facebook just reminded me that I went out to a trampoline park for the first time on this day 5 years ago.

  4. My S.O. put together a volleyball team that plays once a week (indoors!) at a local venue. Most of us are beginners, and we haven’t won a game yet – but I’m having fun learning and improving. Yesterday, I had several successful serves in a row and remembered to set the ball a few times instead of panicking and trying to bump it at head height!

  5. I dunno. I got in some baby bike rides outdoors. We had several wks. of very cold, snowy/icy winter….meaning -30 to -35 degrees C. here in Alberta.
