First of all, it is very foggy, and warm. We hope for clearing by mid afternoon- we love these autumn walks. Yesterday the stairs to the playing field were busy, the colours so brilliant. One fellow, does two sets running, add 2 walking, at 77 years of age. We have become staircase friends.
My speed up the stairs is not improving much, still worried about my knee, but I do love the exercise stations along the edges of the playing field, and the instructions provided. Pull-ups are a new goal.
What strikes me as odd is the new methods for —- everything. Looks like I must go online more and more, and I don’t like it much- yet. Today my husband had a phone appointment with a specialist...set for 9:45, changed to 10:15, and of course, the phone rang just after 9 am, and of course, he was indisposed. But seems his bloodwork has improved , though I have no details re RBC etc, and I like to know.
It’s “ see you in a year “ and bye bye. I also had a scheduled seminar for noon today , but received notice that the meeting started at 9 am ... what ? Then I couldn't join because I didn’t have the code... what code ? Oh boy, checked my secret list—no code.
I missed it. But not missing anything else today. We had seriously heavy fog and rain... and now it is lifting. Yay ! We will walk outdoors, so much better than following someone online. When the instructor, who is alone, whoops, and yells ‘ good job ‘ it makes me laugh. Seems nutty to me—- I could be sitting on my butt. Clearly , I am unimpressed - new Zoom classes begin this week... passwords required among other sign in details.
Maybe I’ll get used to it, but probably go it alone, just me and my step ( and weights, bands, and ball) and really good music. A friend sees his trainer weekly, and has a well equipped home gym...he loves it, prefers it to in person training.
My son also has face time sessions with his trainer. It works for them.
These uneven bars are interesting.. I do squats here , and a variety of leg raises ...
Meanwhile, I get my step out and do a set or two, all by my lonesome...and good weather is predicted... back to the playing fields asap.
