“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken” ~ James Dent

On a day where there was a genuine warmth in the air, I laced up my shoes and headed north along the Lochside Trail to stretch out my legs. My last key workout will be tomorrow, but today was all about active recovery. It felt great.

Oh yeah, I managed to cut the lawn, most of it anyway. That was until the damn lawnmower stopped working. I hate machines.

Training: easy 23:53

I'm a recent convert to a "reel" lawn mower. I love it! The 18" craftsman model at Sears is just over $100.

I'm with Lawrence on the human powered mower - if you have less than 3/4 acres.

Either that or a scythe.

Absolutely wonderful picture on the previous post. And yes, good friends are great at lifting one out of the depths. As I am sure you are finding out, your child can also provide the same benefits...though not during a run. Not yet, anyway.
