Not sure if this has ever been discussed before but thought be interesting to see some of the odd-er things people do outside the sports realm that people might not have had you down for.
Im more a runner these days than a triathlete but besides the general outdoors stuff I’d say two of my other interests are in some ways an extension of this as the other stuff I quite enjoy:
I really enjoy baking, tbh its more I really enjoy cooking in general and food is something we take a general interest in but Im very much a sweet tooth person so enjoy baking a good cake or cookie
A general love of the outdoors is when not going as fast me and the wife spend a lot of time walking with a particular interest in looking for mushrooms (or mycology to give it its correct name!). I VERY rarely forage as tbh im too afraid of making a mistake and eating something poisonous but I have found St Georges but combining with hobby 1, one of my proudest finds are some authentic morel mushrooms which were genuinely one of the best food experiences I’ve ever had. I’ve been told they sell for over £100 per kg to the fancy restaurants in London as they have to be foraged but generally Im just on the look out for some of the cool looking stuff. Plenty of interesting colors and shapes besides whats to be found in the supermarket aisle. All in all I just generally enjoy nature and would enjoy looking for some of the colorful birds (of the avian variety) but they dont sit still like mushrooms do so can be harder to spot and identify:) My missus also enjoys other parts of botany but I dont really find plants and flowers as interesting as the mushrooms:)
So what about everyone else? anyone else got any slightly more left-field hobbies or collections?
