Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Outdoor gyms

Walking along by the river you see many joggers especially at lunchtime as the workers leave their desks behind and exercise their bodies. Not sure how often these benches are part of the keep fit regime though.




I think I prefer to just sit and admire the view.

  1. This is a lot nicer than the one near my brother's home in Texas. I'd much rather be exercising in London! :-)

  3. My imagination is working overtime, but nothing is coming to me about how they would be used. Best I stop thinking about them.

  4. HAhaha, they look like instruments of torture ... but then again, as I once read in a 'Garfield' cartoon - 'did you ever see a jogger smile?'

  5. They look like Mediaeval torture rack but in a way it is if you use them

  8. A good idea ! I saw in the Waterloo park that the city had installed some fitness "machines" !

  9. I can't imagine using that exercise equipment in full view in downtown London! It's a good idea, though and would be a break from walking.

  10. I am with you – sit and admire the view. I don’t think these benches would kill anybody, but why take a chance?

  11. I've seen those circuits in parks before, and while I love to walk and used to love the gym (and maybe will someday again) I'm not tempted at all do do bench presses right downtown -- and especially can't imagine doing that in my "working clothes."

  12. At first glance they remind me more of old town stocks and confinements rather than exercise....
