None too warm here in TN right now – unlikely to top 60F today (which is roughly 16C for Europeans!). All the sun fun seems to be in Europe – since I got up I have been inundated with messages and pictures about the eclipse of the sun which was been pretty spectacular back home in UK – I even have friends who have taken their family to the Faroe Islands where the eclipse was apparently ‘total’. Rare in UK to get rid of the clouds to see the sun at all, but I understand that our place in Wales woke up to clear skies and a fantastic view of it all (according to my dad, anyway! – maybe he’ll send me the ‘eclipse tee-shirt, if there is one!). Dave’s just checking out the British TV “lunchtime news” on the internet and there are certainly some amazing pictures.
No eclipse for us in US for about seven years, as far as I know. But we’ll use the excuse to have ‘sunny’ fitness pictures today!
A nice twosome to start, doing things the way we like…
More of the Russian lads I featured last time -a somersault contest, although I have to say I wouldn’t accept that style in the gym!:
At the pool:
Leaving the shadow of the beach shower…
Posing against the wall:
Casting a shadow – and making a big impression with their strength and levers – at the street workout demo:
In a sun-dappled glade in the woods – communing with nature: just how it should be!
…or, indeed, practicing your aerial show au naturel in the sun…
Ready to wrestle in the Turkish sun:
Try the slack line!
A frankly unwise (but sunny) location for a train-ing run…
(definitely not a wise choice of route – and trains can run either way on many tracks!)
Back on the beach now:
(Everyone’s doing ‘sommies’ today!)
Pull-ups under a clear blue sky…
And, finally, catching those final rays of the day (and showing off your back muscle at the same time):
Yep – can’t beat the sun!
Can’t beat a good book either, if you’re into gay love and sporty guys doing their thing…
