Off to the Pool, ah, er, Gym!!!

 Last week Sheryl's Physical Therapist began introducing her to weight machines at their facility along with other therapy. We asked her about going to the gym on our own inbetween sessions, and she said that would be really good for her. Well, since we are here at a military base, we have access to the base gym, and this one just so happens to be a really nice one. They have every different weight/aerobic machine you could imagine as well as many other activities. So we started going and hope to go at least every other day until we leave for the road next month.
An added benefit of the gym is the indoor lap pool, it's nice to jump in and have a relaxing swim after a good workout. Plus on these 100+ degree days it's great for cooling off. We'll miss this bennie when we leave here, but plan on taking advantage of the gyms at various bases web visit on our travels. The PT has also given Sheryl plenty of exercises she can do at home, so those will help keep her (us) limber when a gym is not available. Between the treadmills, weights and pool we have been getting quite the workout, and both hope to be in better shape before long.

That's it for today, we're just trying to stay cool and don't plan on being in this heat next year. Take Care and see you on the next go round.

That's a great looking pool. Good idea using all that equipment to help Sheryl's rehab. You paid for it (with your taxes) so enjoy it!

Hope you don't get too baked with all that heat and can get back on the road soon.
