Free Faux "Curves" Threw Me A Curve Ball
We have these great exercise machines in the park just acrosss the street, yes, even closer than the pool.
There are a whole bunch of them, state of art, rain-proof etc. The area is even fenced in to make it more private. So, I figured a few serious minutes on them in the morning would be a fine way to try to keep my body close to the shape it achieved by exercising in the pool. As you can see, there are also shade trees, and did I say that they are free for use?
It was too sunny to go walking by the time I got out of the house, but there was shade, good thing. The park was empty, just perfect. Or so I thought.
First problem was that almost all of the seats were wet and I hadn't brought a rag along. I did my best to dry off a few, sat down and then I heard...
Can you see that small tractor coming through? Just as I started to work out, it started to work. It was there to make a new path, since a family will be building in the area of the existing one. There went my privacy. I also didn't like the idea of breathing in the freshly turned earth.
I worked out another couple of minutes and walked home. Do "good intentions" burn calories and strengthen muscles?
