MY NEW TREADMILL,,, for a few weeks

I decided to consider walking in this field as MY NEW TREADMILL.... until my DH(dear hubby) plows the ground. The weather has been just that gorgeous fall weather us Midwesterners wait all year to enjoy. Ya know, cool in the 60-70's, sunny, dry, breezy.... yeah, just how we like it!

The soybean stubble is real easy to walk on and the ground is quite level (not like a picked corn field).

I have inclines....

and I have wind resistance..... see my hair blowing in the wind..

All the way to the tree line,,, no cheating. It takes me an hour to and from my back door, perfect!!! If you click on this picture and look on the right hand side, in the tree line, you can see a spot of blue, that's the Mississippi River!

I can sing at the top of my lungs.... and nobody has to listen to me....
(on pitch is not an option)....

I even can do my arm exercises while I am walking and no one thinks I am doing monkey impressions.

Casting Crowns is my choice of music. It is a perfect pace for me. I am trying to walk for 3 minutes, jog for 1 minute. I will increase my jog time, in time....
Everything in moderation I am told.
Anyone want to join me!!!!!


  1. Love it, looks like a great place to walk. One hour is really good. Love all the pictures. I do need to join you, that's for sure. Hopefully I will catch that bug soon since the weather is cooler. Have a nice weekend.

  2. I'll be there. Just let me know when!

  3. Hi Lori, was nice to see your bright shiny face and windblown hair. If I was there, I would definitely be on that treadmill with you. A perfect place to get in your exercise. I love nothing more than a brisk walk with a friend on a cool crisp day. Enjoy :) Tammy

  4. PS My chicken friend only stayed for a couple of days and then was gone. I hope she found her way back home. :/ Best wishes,Tammy

  5. How wonderful! And, your day out int he sun is soo lovely. Have a great treadmill and know that yours is soo much better than any indoor one! Oh - I DID see the river in the photo! Wow..great walk..

  6. Lorie you will be svelte in no time girl. Good for you!!

  7. That is a wonderful alternative to suburban sidewalks I am stuck walking on. I'd love to be out where I can't hear cars. And to have the river view - perfect!

    Even better - doing intervals. I am so impressed!
