Get fit in the countryside
We are told that getting exercise in the outdoors is good for us. But who wants the ‘joys’ of a hard slog up a mountain and not to mention rain, wind and bogs?

This excellent example was spotted today in the Wicklow’s on the way up Seahan. One careless (and thoughtless) owner who saw in their wisdom to recycle (dump) the said treadmill in the great outdoors so that others can benefit from its use (if only we can find a portable electric generator to power it).
