    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    We used to work out at Lifetime Fitness in St Louis. The closest one in Florida is in Boca Raton, on the other coast, so obviously not an option here. I really liked that place.

    I work out at home, have quite a bit of equipment, light weights, a complete set of medicine balls, heavy duty stretch bands rigged up in the closet (just open the door and pull them out into the room). I also have a slant board, a Pilates ring and a little styrofoam thing for stretching the calves (bought it from the physical therapist).

    3 times a week I go to physical therapy. Those sessions are getting longer, sometimes up to almost 2 hours. 2 days a week I have hydrotherapy (workout in a 96 degree therapy pool, mostly on a treadmill), then change and do exercises in the gym. Once a week I work out in the PT gym.

    Have been working out feverishly, as I'm afraid the insurance is about to reach its limit, so trying to get as good as I'll be able to get.

    SR can answer for himself, but he usually walks a lot, between walks on his own where he can walk faster and those with the hounds, who like to stop and sniff and smell the flowers on the way. :D He also was riding his bike, til it had a flat tire.

    I swim, so I work out at the community center.

    I'm considering buying a bicycle this spring to ride around the neighborhood or to take out to one of the metro parks and their bike trails-I hate the stationary bike, and I stopped with the weights because my back started hurting. But riding a bike out in a nice park might be a way to step up my weight loss this summer, so I can maybe lose another size before my 30th class reunion in September.

    But my new car is a hatchback, so I probably wouldn't even need a bike rack to haul it out to Stoney Creek.

    Do yourself a favor and get the bike rack. The load-unload is difficult and potentially damaging to your vehicle. If you have a quick removal front wheel, it makes it easier to put in a car. My rear bearings went out on mile 20 something and I had to put it in the back of the Jeep. Had to deflate the front tire and remove it to get the beast in.:(

    What is "long?"
