Andy's Active August - Day 1

1 Aug 2009: Today's cardio was mowing.

About half of the three acres we (and the mortgage company) own is covered with grass - the kind that insists on growing. It's been a couple weeks since I gave it all a good mow. My neighbors were shaming me with their mowed lawns, and I'm a sucker for peer pressure (as I mentioned in my previous post).

We own a riding mower. Christy found it three years ago when we bought the house. It was used and needed a little love. But it was only $275 for a 42" tri-blade deck, 18HP Briggs and Stratton engine. And it was running. Most of our yard lends itself to riding mower mowing. The hill out front does not.

For the hill, I use a push mower. It's one that bags the grass, so it actually gets heavier as I go. Mowing the hill takes about 30 minutes. It's a decent cardio workout - as good or better as I get at the gym. The 90 DegF heat and humidity added to the fun.

So Day One is in the books. Tomorrow will be tricky. I don't usually go to the gym on Sundays, and I've already mowed the grass. I'll need to be creative.
