bc i thiiiiiiink that, during her self-imposed exile, valkyrie spends a disproportionate amount of time exercising. no combat training, no magic. she just goes for early morning runs and late evening hikes, for walks in the afternoon, and it makes both the dog and her so tired they drag their feet on the way upstairs to her bedroom. xena’s favourite part is playing fetch during walks. valkyrie’s favourite part is stretching and the way her muscles burn and when xena gets excited about snow or rain or butterflies or any number of things. on good days all that fresh air and running guarantees that valkyrie falls asleep as soon as her head hits the pillow.
