Fathers Day 2009

In spite of the crap weather Father’s Day was particularly enjoyable.  Dock installation was complete.  The weather was damp and misty but did not rain–for most of the day.  I had wonderful conversations with Samuel from Miami and Joshua from Fort Gordon, GA,  Judy cooked me breakfast, and Nathan led me through a Deck of Cards Workout.  The Workout’s rules are simple.  Shuffle a deck of playing cards, place it face down, turn over the top card, and perform either the displayed number of pushups(for black cards) or situps (for red cards).  If the top card is the 7 of spades you do 7 pushups.  If the next card is the jack of clubs you do 11 pushups.  If the ace of hearts follows you do 14 situps.  And so on, until you’ve run through the entire deck.  You math majors will have calculated this workout requires completing 208  situps and 208 pushups.   I switched from standard (on toes) to modified (on knees with calves raised and ankles crossed) pushups and varied the style of situp, but Nathan did, too.  I was pleased to complete all 416 reps.  Once you reach a certain age if you aren’t pushing your physical limits then you are losing gound.  There is no equilibrium.
