I don't read while training. I don't think about writing. I do read books on fitness and health.

When I feel mentally alert and physically fit, I am more inclined to write. I know many write when they are depressed and I can write then,too, but I'm finding that being in a good place mentally means I have the energy and desire to write.

I agree with LOTUS, I have to be reading something - reading is a reward and a relaxation for me as well as a challenge. If my life gets so busy that I have no time to read, I'm NOT a happy camper. I also get cravings for more serious books, although I love light reading (murder mysteries!) as a pure relaxation.
As a child I escaped into books, and formed the habit of being a bookworm/couch potato. Getting into fitness has been a challenge to this habit -- I have to find time for both and it's not always easy! I do read less now that I am more into fitness.

Eureka! Go for it, LOTUS!

When I work out, I don't read but I do think about writing. I imagine what I'd like to write about, and how I'd like to write. Some of my most creative ideas come from working out!

Reading has always been down time for me - a proper relax, freeing the mind and chilling out the body. Also, a reward after a day of 'doing' stuff. When I am fired up with the reading bug, I find myself *doing* more and feeling more satisfied. Right now, I am frazzled, I am not reading any books (although I read a lot of news and interesting articles online).

Right, that's it - more reading. I need some new books - Amazon.co.uk here I come!

I read while I ride my stationary bike. The longer I ride the longer I get to read. Because of my schedule this is really the only time I get to read anymore so I make sure I ride my bike everyday.

The decisions you make today affect the choices you have tomorrow.

How does your passion for reading/literature fit into your fitness? Does it?
