Interval Training...

Monday, September 07, 2009

Jogging down the straightaway with my manual lawn mower,

reach the end,

pause, turn around

jog down the next row with my lawnmower,

reach the end,

pause, turn around...

Worked up a nice sweat with my alternative interval training...green style! :-)


PS: one of the BEST perks to a reel mower...with my mp3 player (which I can't listen to when using the power mower...have to turn it up too loud) on, I'm just a-buzzing along...I'm sure I must look like I'm waltzing with the mower as if she's my dance partner...lol!

    I love this! I can just picture you doing it to. Awesome. I had a reel mower once. If the grass gets too high, that's a heck of a push!

    You are so cool! LOL. Would love to see that. (Your arms must be pretty strong; if memory serves, those push mowers took quite a bit to get going.) Smart, creative man!

    How about a REAL mower?! I'd just love to see my dad mow our lawn with one of those - no, he'd probably have a heart attack never mind (I think an acre w/one would be a bit much for him)...seriously tho, They're definitely great exercise, no!? And if you've not got a bag attachment raking up the clippings is an added benefit. You can even do the leaves with it I understand..and start a mulch pile. Just think of the compost you could have for your gardens!

    Too funny!

    I also have a reel mower along with a cordless trimmer. The last time I did the lawn, it occurred to me that I could use my MP3 to drown out the noise of the trimmer. Once I was done I kept it on while using the mower. All of a sudden, mowing took on a whole new dimension! I was rocking to the beat, pushing the mower back and forth, and probably looking quite insane.

    Yeah, if it's the kind that uses momentum rather than gas or electricity... Or 'old fashioned push mower' hehe.

    There are some really fancy nice ones available now.

    I have a Scott's but it needs a tuneup. It's jammed somehow.
