Yay! The glorious Spring weather is in its full swing. The wind is relaxes into its invisible undulations, making the branches heavy with leaves and flowers dance from side to side. I took a step outside, anticipating a deceptively sunny day with a bone-chilling breeze. Instead, I was hit with SUNSHINE! If you know me, you know I’m singing part of that sentence… just another way to express my happiness.
I decided then to finally venture through the fitness trail that was just minutes away from my apartment. This beautiful day begs for a fun outdoors workout!
The fitness trail started suddenly in a middle of a suburb. A friendly sign lets you know that the fitness/bike trail leads to the local park. The welcoming reception to the trail got me going. Although I am not a big fan of jogging, I couldn’t help but briskly jog to the first station. It was dedicated to push-ups! Yes, let’s get to the good stuff right away!
There were two bars sticking out of the ground, one a little lower than the other. Next to them was a sign, one of many that would be waiting for me. It showed the various types of exercises I could perform on the bars, as well as the number of reps for beginners and experienced fitness enthusiasts. I heeded the reps rule and performed 10 of each type of pushup. Not easy, especially since I was on the bar that was highest up from the ground. I was going fast with the pushups; in the future I’d like to go slower so I can make sure I’m maintaining my form. When I was done with the pushups I jogged to the next station.
