I have decided I need more exercise.

Apart from tramping the mountaintops and whacking a few tourists, I am a fairly sedentary person.  I need to improve my blood circulation and generally tone up with a view to living that little bit longer.  At my age I am only too aware that anything that can delay that fateful day is good.

I have searched for a suitable exercise regime, and have found quite a few.  Most recommend around thirty minutes a day of aerobic exercise, but that sounds a bit like hard work.  I am not one to enjoy a good sweat.

I persevered with my search and finally found what I am looking for.

It is going to be very tough going.  I am going to have to discipline myself to carry out this regime every day.  There may be days when I may feel like resting but I am determined that this shall not happen.  The sacrifice will be well worth while for an extra five years of lifespan.  I may even go that little bit extra to make it six years.

This is my regime.

Tough, isn’t it?

  1. Tramping mountain tops? How the hell do you get up there?

    Whacking tourists? Remind me not to tour your neck of the woods the next time I take the ferry over! What is your neck of the woods by the way? I gather it’s Cork, but I don’t want to write off the whole of County Cork!

    With regard to your latest exercise regime, does herself have sufficient frontage or are you obliged to take supplements?

  2. Matt – The joy of this particular regime is that it can be practised virtually anywhere.  All you need to do is to find the right equipment, which I am glad to say is found in most places.

    Sean – How does anyone get up onto a mountain?  As for the tourist thing – that is a blood-sport that is highly regarded in these parts.  Because of their proliferation in times past, they were considered to be vermin.  Then of course, George W put his imprimatur on it by declaring his War on Tourism some years ago.  It was probably the only good thing he ever did.

    Where did you get the idea I was in Cork?  It’s more than a grand spot, but I’m on the other side of the country in the wilds of Wickla [as we call it here].

  3. I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to look in on you in a while Grandad. Glad I did today. Hysterical. Had me chuckling in front of my computer screen. Would have liked to be a fly on the wall when that German researcher came up with the idea of starting a study on this form of “exercise.”

  4. Hello Grandad,   I stumbled on your site looking into Ireland and you are great funny read.  I really needed a good laugh. If I make it to Ireland, I am not much for the whacking and you might find I whack back, we could have an old people fight.     Look forward to more of your rambles.

  5. Denise – Too busy even to say hello?  Shame!  Welcome back anyway.

    Sharivander – Welcome to my wee spot.  You are more than welcome to try to fight back.  It would add to the sport.  Let me know when you are coming.  Heh!

  6. I most certainly subscribe to this form of exercise.
    Problem is getting the right quality of said mammaries on a daily basis.

  7. Just wondering then why you got rid of the nice photo you had of the boobies on your home page – miss looking at those and it was a handy source of viewing !!

  8. I’m well sorted since I’m being doing this exercise for nearly 3 decades. So I reckon I’m gonna live to 100 and keep enjoying those beautiful valleys of flesh in the meantime.

  9. Josh  I got tired of sharing them.  I am reserving them for my own personal use.

    Pete – The one problem with this regime is that you must never ease off on the exercise.  I know it’s tough, but stick with it.
