In an effort to always keep trying new forms of fitness, Chuck and I went to the Golf driving range today.  It was a great experience and we had such a great time.  The best part is that we tried this three years ago and did not have such a great time.  I remember getting dizzy every time I put the ball on the tee and stood up and my arms felt so heavy that I did not make it thru my half of the bucket of balls. Today was great, we both hit a bucket and then shared another.  If hadn’t started raining and it was way past lunch, we may have stayed longer.  Next up will be golf lessons in September.  I would [&hellip

Phyllis4fitness has a new challenge, my excellent race sherpa and husband Chuck has become a devoted member of a Crossfit box. He is now at the box three times a week and he has learned a whole lot of new terms that I have to catch on too.  Luckily thanks to wonderful communities I follow, I am not totally lost.
