The Pavement Pounders!


Pavement PoundersThe head of a Korean car company was once apparently quoted as saying that ‘those who need a gym after work aren’t working hard enough’. Personally I think that’s unfair to those who work behind a desk. I count myself lucky that I get some exercise during the day, although not as much as I used to, thanks to the demands of an administrative paperwork mountain. So flex those muscles, don those expensive trainers and hit the pavements. I’m afraid you’ll have to go on your own as I’ve got oats to shovel this morning…

Jim and Jan are joggers,
Running around the town,
Pounding the pavements,
Bits bouncing up and down!
At first the cause was dietary,
Then it became a craze,
Now it’s an obsession,
Not just a passing phase!
One day they might need surgery,
One knee perhaps two,
But for now they’re happy,
To jog past me and you!
