I would like to ask about low vs high fantasy, but I doubt many people would understand

Yeah, I play(ed) for fun outside of school. Regardless of that. I need to get my blood pressure down so back to jogging and the old prison workout for me.
It gets easier. Every day it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day - that’s the hard part. But it does get easier. Urgh, fuck jogging.

I also read EU/US comics and am a librarian.

No, and it doesn't interest me. And, yep, I know I'm doing nothing to discourage the disparaging views society holds re: otaku 🤣 But I'm still twenty-eight! Plenty of time left before health concerns force me to exercise! I hope...

Never really been a sports fan. I can "get into it" if I focus on the game being played, or if it's a story, but I've just never had any interest in getting involved in sports. That being said, I have been taking exercising more seriously over the past several months because I am tired of feeling so sickly a lot of the time, and a lot of the "body positive" propaganda I see being pushed I find to be disgusting and it scares the living shit out of me.

Sorry, that isn't the way life works. You finally "stop" growing and maturing by the time you hit 30, with the rest of you life being dictated by the physical choices you made up to the point. You can still became "healthier" after you hit 30, but it becomes harder to enforce that habit and you won't be able to reach as much of a "prime condition" as you would have had you been practicing even the simplest "basic health advice" up to that point.

Unless ballet or thru-hiking counts, I’ve never done sports except in PE. My fondest memory is when someone threw a football to me and I put my arms over my head and ran away 🤣

Yeah, but only for class (PE, etc), but I have played a little bit of table tennis, on occasion, when I've been in places where it's been available.
Also I've done a bit of martial arts training (physical, but not sport), which I'd love to do more, but sadly have only done a bit and very sporadically (barely ever, these last years, sadly), due to certain issues outside of my control. I'd also like to (though in a relatively safe manner) learn some parkour (again, not a sport), but what with the above mentioned issues...

Football (Soccer for Americans) and Swimming are my things.

Yeah, I play(ed) for a school team (high school, college, etc)

In school, only played for classes – loved football, rounders, cricket, hockey, idk basketball + badminton?

Instantly dropped any exercise as soon as it stopped being compulsory, but I started taekwondo in uni, which is more a 'team sport' during competition seasons.
I've tragically put it on hold for a year while studying abroad, so I'm definitely less in shape 🤣 Now, I just get the occasional yoga session, but after aborting a class this morning, I figure I'd rather go for a run. It's probably better to re-strengthen my legs and feet anyway.
