Okay, here goes...

Softball, Hockey, Basketball, Tennis, Indoor cricket, Horse riding, Indoor rock climbing, Athletics, Sailing, Dance, Wheelchair basketball, Cycling, Swimming, Hiking.

I was always game to try something new, hence the long list. Not all of them were long term though. Maybe half of them were sports I did for longer than 2 years. I have always hated jogging/long distance running though. It was either fast or not at all.

Now - walking, and watching my kids play sport!

Biking (mtn and road) about 3500 miles per year.
Skiing - about 50 days a year.
Surfing - whenever the surf is decent.
Fly fishing - when the fish are biting.

As the saying goes; The older I get, the better I was!
April 1, 2007 - snapped left ACL skiing ("Tell me that was my binding popping!").
Summer 2007 - rehabbed and rode in PMC
October 10, 2007 - ACLr - Allograft

Took up skiing 3 years ago, only three trips but can handle most intermediate runs (pre TPF), absolutely love it, had a fantastic time in Berwang (Austria) in Jan 08. I really hope that I can can back to this.

Day to day sports
Running
Shotokan Karate (Senior Brown Belt)

I loved my running, I live in the country and did 900 miles in the year up to the accident, mostly along country lanes, got fit enough to do a sub 2 hour half-marathon (13 miles) late in 07, excellent result. I hope that I can get back to all my sports but have to be patient, for the time being I will be stuck to an exercise cycle but it is a start.

I've been a horseback rider for 14 of my 17 years. The responsibilities of living on a big horse farm added on to the fact I'm constantly traveling for horse shows has always left me with very little time to do much else, so that's my only sport. I run and swim a lot for recreation, but nothing else competitively.

Great topic!

I am in the same boat as suenosderosas. I ride and train American Quarter Horses, and that takes up every waking minute of my time. I am almost 6 foot tall so I like to play basketball, but never actually played on a team because I didn't have time.

I am still riding when my knees will cooperate. I haven't been riding any young horses or bad horses though. I don't want to raise my chances of falling off.
 When I do ride I ride:
               Western Pleasure/ Equitation
               Trail
               Some gaming
               English/ HUS and Equitation
               Jumping = I jumped 3 foot and that is as high as I will go. It was scary! lol!

Surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, backpacking, kayaking, fishing, biking, etc.

I was a forester back in the 1980s, and loved working and living in the woods. I did mostly Timber Stand Exams and Stocking Surveys, which included Botany and Dendrochronology.

Before partial knee replacement:
Daily stretching & strengthening exercises: plank, squats, pushups, arm weights
TRX training 2xWeek
Zumba 2xWeek (not really my thing but quick & practical cardio workout in winter)
mtb several times/week
biggest achievement: cycled 1300 km of Danube cycle path summer 2014

I did quite few sports in my life (tennis, volleyball, road & mountain biking, mountaineering, rock climbing, ping-pong, etc), but one ruined my right knee: football (or soccer in North America). I first fell on my right knee on hard-wood floor back in 2005 while playing indoor football, and then in 2015, I tore the quads muscles (probably due to dehydration), which probably caused some imbalance in the leg, once the muscles healed, maybe a bit shorter.
Well, looking for some regenerative solutions to my meniscus tear and mild arthritis.
