Beat the Boredom: Running Book Club

I know the title of this post seems odd so I am just going to start by clarifying that no, I do not think you should start a running group where you read as you run. For many reasons, this is not a good idea.

However, a great idea to beat boredom while working out is to get a book club together where after you all read the book, you bring the discussion outside during a group jog or walk. This way you'll all be getting exercise, you'll still get to talk about the book you've read and you'll be able to use the talk test to make sure you're working out at a good pace.

Time will fly by and since they say we're more creative when we exercise, you may surprise yourself with your own participation during the discussion.

I find that I'm most able to work through story ideas when I'm running, but the problem is that I can't run and type on my laptop (or use a pen and paper) at the same time. I think I might get a little voice recorder thing and carry that with me instead.

I'd never be able to find enough people to run with me for this to work. My friends would read the book, I'm sure. But they would probably not want to run 8 miles to discuss it.

Ha! Cute idea!!! If I only I could find a group of women that run in my area.
