SPC - Crazy Legs


The theme for this month's Self Portrait Challenge is "The Body"

This is a photo of me on my torture device of the moment - my Nordictrack ski exerciser. I used to run, but my knee decided it didn't like running anymore so I have turned to the Nordictrack to keep in shape. I miss being outside, but it beats doing nothing at all. I think when I started exercising it was with the goal of looking good, but who cares about that anymore? The main thing I like about it is that it makes me feel better - less stressed out, more relaxed, and it helps me sleep better. It does often strike me that it's fairly ridiculous that nowadays we have to use special machines or make special efforts to get the kind of exercise that used to just happen in the course of a regular day's work hunting mastodons, but I guess that's the price that those of us with sedentary desk monkey jobs have to pay.

See others' take on the theme here.

That photo rocks. As of tomorrow (after my appointment) I am supposed to bust MY ASS. Maybe I'll take a pic of myself repeatedly flipping off the camera.

paintergirl - LOL!

I didnt realize that you had bionic legs. Knowing you are able to move that fast you would have no trouble hunting mastadons

Great capture of motion, JC. Kudos on at least trying to stay in shape, especially despite a bum knee.
