I'll take no pain, thanks

I KEEP SEEING links and reading Facebook posts about people killing themselves to feel better. They are contorting their bodies into impossible shapes, doing upside down pushups and running marathons.

Look. If you are into this sort of thing, working out and pushing yourself, good for you. Just remember it's not for everybody, and everything is relative.

I walk a couple of miles every day. This is low impact exercise and it's good for my brain. I don't need some doctor with seven degrees and teaching a class a week to tell me it's good. It just is.

The cold winter weather makes it hard for Sheryl to get out and walk. Yesterday she finally walked a mile with Tucker, and she felt great after she got home.

See? No pain, just a little effort, and a lot of gain.

I'm thinking about getting selling the scooter and getting a bike. Pushing pedals is better for you and good for the soul. I'll wear my helmet, of course.

So. Push on, exercisers. If it works for you, it works for me. We can talk about when I get home from my walk.
