There is a paved LARGE motorcycle training course in my backyard. While walking back from the mailbox the other day, I put the unused pavement to use. It makes for a great walking course. 🙂
When not in use by the motorcycle guys and gals – the pavement is perfect for a total knee replacement (TKR) recuperation exercise. It is flat (except for one small dip that I discovered one day), paved, and I can walk it as many times as my little heart desires.
I find that walking around it at a moderate pace -for about 5 times- suits my needs fine. My knee loves it, and my entire body gets a good workout. It is even better when the sun is starting to rest after a busy day. Nice breeze, cool pavement, and quietness….woohoo!
So, for all the mornings that I am woke up by the annoying high squeal of a motorcycle horn (bummer), some good has come out of this course. (If you’ve never heard a motorcycle horn, you’re saving yourself a headache.)
