Working vs. Working Out
March 17, 2008
I did keep working, although slowly, and sometimes in a rather sloth-like fashion. I felt that I was not so helpful with my tiny loads, or even contributing much to the overall team effort.
1 hour a day on the treadmill does not prepare you for 4 hours of deep knee bends, or equilibrium changes resulting from your head being moved from near ground-level to regular height every minute or so. Luckily, I was grounded in my unyielding steel-toed boots, which kept me from dizzily tipping over more than a few times.
Also, please note, that 1 hour a day on a treadmill, wearing sneakers and shorts in a dimly lit, climate controlled home, does not equal 1 hour of constant ground walking, wearing steel toed boots and long jeans outside in the March Louisiana sun.
How am I going to prepare better for the next trip?
I guess I’m just going to have to wear those steel toed boots while I’m on the treadmill from now on.
