May Photos, Day 21—Where You Stand


21.  Where You Stand

This is my Gazelle glider; I’ve had it for years.  In keeping with the stereotype for exercise equipment, it has spent many of those years stuffed in a closet or standing in a corner gathering dust and holding laundry.  But no more.  Now that I have an exercise bike and have also started C25K, I don’t use the glider nearly as often as I used to, but I still try to jump on several times a week for at least a mile or so.

I’ve “walked” a lot of miles on this thing, and though I’m sort of getting to the point where I’d like to trade it in for a treadmill, that’s certainly not in the budget at the moment.  So I guess the glider and I will still be spending time together, and it will be where I stand for quite a bit longer.


  1. WTG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im keeping up with my walking too
    its neat dropping off my youngest at school and then carrying on with my walk
    Im still doing about 5kms a day :)
    and it kind of sets me up for the day :)

    1. My longer walks have sort of been dialed back now that I've started the C25K program. The days I do the program, my legs don't have much else left in them, and on my off days I'm sort of recuperating! I'm hoping in another week or so I'll be able to get back to more actual walking. I did go to a park today and strolled around, but only about an hour, and I was doing a lot of picture-taking, so it was a really leisurely pace.

      Glad to hear you're keeping up with your walks. I really do think it's one of those truly simple things that has such amazing benefits.
