How Much do I Love Thee Park Workouts? Let Me Count the Ways

I found myself back at the little park across the street for my workout again. My park workouts are strictly for leg days, because I tend to use little or no weights waist down with high reps as I want to retain a lean, toned look for my legs. On upper body days, I have to hit the gym because that is when I lift heavy and need the free weights and machines. Oh the problems of being a T-Rex, I tell ya. Anyhow, enough of my pear-shape peeves. Pear shape peeves! I like that!

 

Back to why I love my park workouts. I love it because I am outdoors and lapping up every bit that is left of the summer. This sight was a gentle reminder that summer is coming to an end soon:

I love my park workouts because I get to hug a tree and stretch simultaneously:

I love my park workouts because it is quiet and serene. I am able to reflect and thank God for sights like this:

I love my park workouts because I am parched afterwards and look forward to post workout refreshment such as this:
