It hasn’t been as great for my workouts. We used to live just a few miles from the athletic club. I could drive there in about seven or eight minutes. Now we’re on the other side of town. It’s not nearly as convenient, so I’ve been going much less frequently.
When a gym isn’t accessible, there are alternatives. One I like is to find some playground equipment to use to do pullups, dips, whatever exercises I can find a way to do. There’s an elementary school a couple hundred yards from our house, which has just what I need.
Yesterday afternoon, I ran over there to workout. When I got there, a couple young moms were there with their children. The kids were probably about three years old.
I started my routine of alternating pullups and pushups. After a few sets, I looked over to where the kids were playing. The little girl looked at me, dropped to the ground and did a couple pushups.
She’d been watching…and imitated me.
Who’s watching you?
