a different kind of exercisePosted: January 17, 2019
I have long gotten my exercise by walking. I have always had an audio program to listen to while doing so. First it was audio books and then lectures from The Great Courses. Things have changed, however.
I require surgery to remove something on my intestinal tract that does not belong there. My surgeon tells me that the stronger I am at the time of surgery the quicker the recovery. And the kind of strength he wants comes from weight training, not walking aerobic exercise.
Fortunately, my wife Terry knows her way around the weight room and gave me some solid training in the exercise room here at Four Seasons. So it’s a different routine. It’s not conducive to listening to audio programs as I need to focus on what I’m doing. But the work needs to be done, so I’m doing the work.
I want to be as strong and healthy as possible for my surgery.
