I get comments like ‘What’s all this nonsense about training naked?’… well, it’s what we like to do in our private places and I’m pleased to report that it happens in “high places”… well, with Northern Irish politicians anyway. Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams revealed in a radio interview in Ireland that he trampolines naked with his dog. ” Yeah, I do it naked. I don’t do it with any great expertise: it’s more the joy… the dog does it with me. It saves me taking him for a walk… we go out and bounce for a while…”.
Jeez! I’d love to post a picture at this point, but I can’t find the right one, so you’ll have to make do with these!
It does, however, have pretty much everything else that a fitness-mad young guy could wish for, and our newly-found friend young Joel duly passed through his ‘initiation’ on Saturday evening, naked of course as is the tradition. Pretty punishing stuff, too, and for his ‘mentor’ – he chose Dave as it happens, with me supporting Joel and Pete supporting Dave, and all four ended up exhausted, wet and then oily, reddened from a few ‘gentle’ lashes across the back, just to show you can take it – you know idiot stuff, with guys “old enough to know better”… still, we enjoy it.
We like to swim naked, too…
Joel hasn’t joined us in the Clinch River as yet, so that pleasure awaits him. I suppose we could have gone down Sunday, but somehow, everyone was a bit tired!
I wonder if I can get away with this image here?
And now, as I cannot think of anything else to say about either Gerry Adams, naked trampolining, or naked anything else, here are some other ‘fitness’ pictures!
Taking an upside-down view of things – as we so often do here!
And, as this has been a slightly surreal post subject today, I shall leave you – after the customary reminder about some rather excellent books to be purchased, with a funny pic which has absolutely nothing to do with our subject at all. But it creased us up, and hopefully will do the same for you. Enjoy!
If anyone has snow out there, be careful where you park your car…
