I saw yesterday several people jogging with sticks in their hands — this is called Nordic walking and it seems to be a big hit in our neighbourhood. I’m seen them before here and there, but now the heavy concentration in a such small area made me think of the phenomenon. Some experts say that walking with sticks really helps you to get fit, as there is more exercise than in normal walking. Some others say that there is no difference. I don’t know, as I haven’t tried.
Maybe this is a sign that we are living in a neighbourhood of middle-aged people…
And now, something completely different. The weather has been nice for us again, and today should be very hot day in Finland. Mind you that “hot” in Finnish terms probably means “mild” or “cold” for some others. We are talking 27C here.
Unfortunately, I need to stay inside working the whole day — as I was working yesterday, too. There will be some barbequeing tonight, so all hope is not lost.
