Summer Workout – Back/Biceps

10 Jul


We decided to to some unofficial training..I call it unofficial because generally speaking the gym frowns upon drinking beer in their establishments during a workout.

I don’t have any ‘before’ shots of the railway ties sitting in front of the shed..but they have been there for quite some time..first there was 2 piles of 25..then we used some as deck supports..then a couple of them to block off the side of the shed so Loki would stop whining trying to get at the groundhog who was under our shed for a day..( Loki looked for him under the shed for 2 weeks though..(Loki has a good memory but her deductive reasoning needs some work)


Anyway, the railway ties have been a yard fixture for 2 years so today A* and I moved them..we wanted the grass to grow and in the next couple of weeks we are going to try to erect something for the grapes to cling onto..something higher that is solid enough to last for years..

We moved them around 100 ft to the side of the house near the woodsplitting area..and some of them were very wet and very HEAVY as a result..what a workout. We spaced them a little more so they could get some air and dry it reminded me of Jenga and A* had to stop me from building a tower.

    you lucky dog – i would love some more railway ties, but not yours… they are HEAVY – you guys would have needed that beer just to contemplate the move!

    hope you are having a great summer and the bugs aren’t so bad on the mainland – cheers!
