WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED FORM OF EXERCISE — WALKING, YOGA, THE GYM, OR OTHER?
Those of you who know me well, or have read my blog for some time are probably laughing. Yes you are. I can hear you. It’s okay. I’m laughing too, but I need to answer this question for everyone else.
Walking is the safest form of exercise for me – but not always.
There was the story of me walking backwards home from school.
I was the last one picked for teams. I was also the one who needed emergency dental treatment because I forgot to stop when running across the gym in a timed test. I ran into the wall, cracking a tooth, fat lip, blood. I was concentrating on the running part.
I am the girl who fell off of the balance beam (and trampoline, and pommel horse) in high school, got her gym suit seat caught while trying to jump over the hurdles, trailing it behind me, and once, I accidentally let go of the badminton racquet, barely missing the teacher’s head.
Advanced folk dance in college; what was I thinking?
There was, of course, the dramatic fall from grace at Janet’s house, where I made a most memorable entrance.
Then, oh dear, the time we were cross-country skiing and I landed in someone’s tomato soup!
I know I told you about my right foot getting stuck in the heating duct . It always makes me think of the Tom Hank’s movie, The Money Pit.
I’ll tell you soon about how I left my imprint at the Art Institute of Chicago’s store.
So, what’s your favorite form of exercise?
