TOPIC 72 CONTRASTING LIFE STYLES Colorado is a fitness state. It is made for hiking, biking, walking, skateboarding, Alpine sporting, mountain sports. wherever you look there is someone working out one way or another. I have a theory about most of those I see biking or jogging and that is they do so because they are thin and muscular already. Not that you do not occasionally seeing someone as tubby as my hubby huffing and puffing. However, my sense is they get no joy. Now, I am neither a runner or a couch potato. I loved roller skating, bike and horseback riding in my youth. Love swimming once I learned how. Skied the beginner’s trails, skated. Once upon a time I ran. I even won a mile race for Golden Oldies. (I was the youngest having just turned 50 the age one had to be to enter.) Now I walk, ride my tricycle and walk in water (aquasize).
Still I loved this Nano Workout because I am also a bit lazy when it comes to some exercises. I do the Shopping Bag lift and in fact joke with the cashiers who are obligated to ask I want out, that having someone carry my bags would deprive me of my weight lifting exercises.
STAYING STRONG TIP Move Your Body is one of my Emotional Fitness Exercises. It matters, it makes you stronger, keeps you younger. Recent studies show that it can be broken up into ten minute segments. Other recent studies are showing that making Sprint training a part of any workup is another Nano Workout. Riding my tricycle gives me my sprint training, but as I type this think I will also make it a point to climb a flight of stairs once or twice a day as my sprint. The weather is not always right for riding the three-wheeler.
