Exercise is Good for Me!

After my bout with Pneumonia, reported in an earlier blog, I was in severe need for some exercise. So, I went about getting some, when it was not raining, which was not often enough in the last while.

So, I made a video and will try to embed it here:

And, hope it works. I'll try it and come back to finish the post...

Well, I first put in a link and that worked, but I wanted to embed the video. Was not too difficult and you can see it above.

Hope you like it!

Made some tea, and while there, I thought of another related piece of news.

I was at the shoe store with Dianne looking for shoes for her when I spotted some MBT shoes on sale. These have high rocker, turn up at the heel and toe. Yes, that makes them unstable, compared to normal shoes. This causes one to work harder to balance. Lots of muscles are involved, so they all work harder than normal. This is called exercise.

I love them. Not everyone does, but I love the deep cushioning. When I stand still, my posture does improve, just like advertised. Recently, I have noticed that I can't stand in lineups without my back announcing it is not happy. Not with MBT shoes, because you use the correct part of the foot and the body just lines up above it.

And, I bought a pair of 4 lb hand weights. Trying to get arm and chest and shoulder muscles stengthened.

Motorcycle news: Handlebars now properly bolted. Sidestand foot extenders (wider, longer) installed. So, a bit safer on soft surfaces - hot asphalt, grass, mud(?), etc.

OK, that's all for tonight. Well, on second thought, here is another video:

And, as you can see, I get some exercise here too!

1am - off to bed.
