New Year’s Resolution: Get Fit, 3 Sports Around Retiro Park!

In my 2015 wishlist I have been very specific about increasing my sports and yoga practices, you know what they say: “mens sana in corpore sano”. But to be fair, it is tricky to start the year off on the right foot because of the cold season. It stops many of us from accomplishing this very popular goal; getting fit. However, Madrid offers new healthy and cool sports on regular basis, where the cold is not an issue. So here three suggestions involving the Retiro Park!

Celebrate San Isidro - Check here if you are a Genuine Madrileño

You are from Madrid (or you've already mimicked) if:
  • You drink tap water and you claim it to be the best in the world, which is absolutely true (I think I've unmasked myself). Hooray for the Canal de Isabel II!
  • For you, the "squid sandwich" bocata calamares is a normal sandwich. You eat it (or have eaten it) without a problem or remorse. Hooray Master Chef! The Callos a la Madrileña is another matter, can it really be the typical dish of Madrid? Does anyone truly eat it?

10 good intentions to start 2013 in shape!!

  1. Fix yourself realistic goals…! Forget about purposes out of your reach such as finding your perfect match (just heaven knows) or learning Chinese in six months… Don't frustrate yourself as of January please...
  2. Start a new healthy lifestyle and buy yourself a bike or Rollerblades for the week end at the Retiro Park.
  3. Read more books, watch less TV (but do watch series such as Game of Thrones, Homeland, Deadwood or The Wire – a piece of art!!!).
  4. Plan yourself 2 good trips during the year: a long expensive and a short economical or vice versa (depending on your possibilities). The trip preparation can be more exciting and rewarding than the trip itself. 
  5. Visit a non crowded exhibition or museum per month (Fundacion MAPFRE, CANAL, CAIXAFORUM, Museo Lázaro Galdiano, Museo Cerralbo, and more… check Blog!!). Your spirit will be gratified. 
  6. Take time to walk instead of using car or public transport. You will discover many hidden spots not reachable from a wheeled perspective. 
  7. Discover a new place in your city that nobody else knows… and tell us! 
  8. Start that new hobby you’ve been avoiding (though wishing) for so long…!! Knitting, Cooking, Zumba, Pole Dance lessons… 
  9. Plan some savings per month (less tobacco, taxis, clothes or drinks at night). You will spend it later on something great (the long trip). 
  10. Be grateful, there is always something to be thankful for! Especially if you live in MADRID. Enjoy the sunshine on any bench of any street…
