My gym


Three days a week I have to report to gym to do my walking under supervision, but two days a week, I get to strap on my heart monitor and do it on my own. Today we hiked a trail in Swope Park (KCMO). I’m always amazed that these places exist right inside the city limits. It was a little difficult keeping my heart rate in the targeted range due to the steep inclines of this trail, but I much prefer this gym to the clinic’s treadmill!
It was a gorgeous day and the view was much better than the gym’s large screen TVs.


And although I was techincally doing this without the usual supervision, I still felt as though I was being watched…
