Walking With Geese

| 9/9/2011 8:15:27 AM

A Red Pine Mountain Logo My joints are aching lately.  To be honest, my entire body aches as I head to the far side of my fifties.  Will it slow me down?  No, but I've been looking for that perfect exercise partner. One who will understand my needs. And, finally that perfect partner has arrived.

Who is it you ask?  What is it would be the correct answer.  Geese, yes geese.

If you want a cardio workout try turkeys because they run. If you’re into competitive events then use guineas. You will be challenged as they fly off ahead and leave you behind in a flurry of wings.

But geese; geese are delightful. They understand there is no need for hurry. We’ll get there sooner or later. And if we don’t, well we’ve enjoyed the fresh air. That’s my kind of exercise companion. Leave the turkeys and guineas for the always purposeful Mountain Man. I, Mountain Woman of the aching joints, have finally met my match.

Interested? Here’s a typical goose workout session.

First, warm up and STRETCH!

Rick, thank you and thanks for the recommendation. I'm going to look into both the magazine and the Zyflamend!

Mountain Woman, good story and pictures. Being on the other side of 60, I need to walk easier and excercise with the geese. For the joint pain I take something recommended by a health mag I recieve, Bottom Line Health. This comes from Bottom Line the financial organization. They recommend Zyflamend by New Chapter. I purchase from for $21.95 for 180 soft gels. Takes a week or so to really start to work, but it is totally all natural and it does work. My wife is an OR nurse who works 3 12's and has joint problems and she says it has helped her. Keep the stories and pictures coming. Rick

Cindy, I remember those days and they were so wonderful. Now that you mention it, walking with geese is like toddlers stopping to examine everything they encounter. Definitely not as magical as having children ask you every few seconds "what is this" but it will have to do. Thanks so much for visiting me and have a wonderful day too!
