My Actifit Report Card: August 19 2019


I do not post too often on actifit, but but I went over the 13,000 mark today and thought it would be a good time to post.

So why a photo of my old tractor? Well I had been busy today cleaning sheds, and restacking firewood so the seasoned wood would be able to be all on one side of woodshed and have room to put this years wood. That was a very good workout, but then brings us to the tractor photo.

Last winter I had a wheel clamp come loose and sheer off the bolts. My son in law got the broken bolts out of the clamp last week, so it was time for me to get it put back together.

So what does that have to do with fitness? Well the clamp was not lining up right and because the wheel would not move to get it lines up...i had it jacked up and on blocks. Seeing the wheel would not move enough to get clamps on I headed to my shop to get a steel bar to try and move the wheel in place. On the way to shop I heard a thud and when I turned around the darn wheel fell off...when things go wrong they really go wrong. That wheel has to weigh 600 pounds (275 kilograms).

No one was available to help so how on earth was I going to get it back up? Lifting is out of the questions so I started gathering blocks of wood and a round piece of firewood to use as a fulcrum. I gradually lifted the wheel a little at a time...placing blocks of wood under it and then would get a bigger fulcrum until I could no further. Then I walked to barn to get a heavy duty block and tackle and connected one end to the tire I was trying to lift and the other end to the other tire ( I have chains on the tires). To my surprise it worked and I was able to get it up...

It took another couple of hours to get it in place so I could start the bolts into clamp.

I was pushing my self to my limits. I could feel my heart hitting or exceeding my maximum heart rate for my age. My shirt was soaked with sweat.

I still have not finished but my body had reached its limits for the day...i left the block and tackle in place to keep the darn wheel from falling again until I can finish it.

Counting steps is one thing but one has to also consider the actually physical activity and the heart rate.

Well, that brings me to a close of this post. What a day, or at least some good activity leading up to an intense couple of hours that was not a lot of fun...but I did it.

Thank you for reading s slightly longer ar actifitst.

I will be doing more and more physical work now and get my whole body in shape, including my heart. I am lucky that for years I have been kept myself in pretty good shape. I am determined to my treadmill out for the snowy months to maintain what I gain from here into fall.

This tractor is my snow plow, although I use it for a few other things. It is only 66 years, which is one year younger than me.

I bought it 30 years ago and surely have gotten a lot of work out of it. I hope to be able to get it finished, started, and then start to prepare it for it's winter job.

Muchísimas gracias. Hoy probablemente volveré a superar los 13.000. Terminé las reparaciones de mi tractor, terminé de limpiar mi leñera, y luego dividí la leña por un rato. No empecé hasta después de la hora del mediodía, o habría sido un número mucho mayor.

Repairing a tractor can also be a healthy sport for you, sir.

Cultivating agricultural land using a tractor must be very fun. In my country farmers use plows with the help of cows. I think you enjoy your day farming and repairing tractors.

20.08.2019 05:07

Thanks you for visiting. Using animals such as cows for working the land is probably less expensive, and less repair work.

I think you are a great farmer. Stay healthy until old age, sir.

Do you work with this tractor yourself?

20.08.2019 05:56
1

Yes...It is my primary tool to move snow in the winter, and has been for 30 years. I am still able to find used parts for a 66 year old tractor. When something breaks I try to repair it myself, but for the more complicated repairs my son-in-law does the work and I help. I plow their place out when his snow plow is broke.

Hola Sr. @r2cornell. No sabia que una rueda de tractor pesara tanto, yo apenas peso 25 kilogramos!. Gracias a Dios pudo resolver todo.

Ya publiqué las orugas 😉

That's what I call to workyour heart out.
I wish my generation can get to your age (I'm not sure how old you are, but I'm guessing over 60) with the same energy, determination, and inventiveness.
I don't think many people in your possition would have tried that kind of effort alone.
Stay safe, @r2cornell

Thank you very much. Yes I am little over 60...I will turn 67 in October. My wife does not think I should have done the work alone, but I never tell her until I am finished. Today I finished the repairs and then split and stacked firewood. My numbers will be similar again today. I am trying to increase my activity a little at a time so when the big push to prepare for winter comes I am in better shape.

Thank you very much. Progress on the tractor, yes. Today I finished the repairs and was able to get it under cover. I will do more maintenance before the snow comes, but now it is under cover and easier to work on.

Ay corniel, leyendo tu post, en cuanto a tus actividades con el cobertizo , leñera tractor, etc. me detengo a pensar en la similitud del vaivén cotidiano de los seres humanos, es un batallar diario en las que nos sobreponemos para proseguir sin desmayar, lo felicito porque porque como dicen en mi país Ud. "echa pa'lante, no se duerme en los laureles", un ejemplo para muchos jóvenes...

Muchísimas gracias. Me crié en una granja y a los 6 años tenía tareas en el granero y otras tareas al aire libre. Esa mentalidad ha permanecido conmigo todos estos años. Mientras pueda mover mi cuerpo, seguiré haciéndolo. Mi hija y mi nieta han desarrollado una fuerte ética de trabajo, probablemente por observarme. LOL

Hoy probablemente volveré a superar los 13.000. Terminé las reparaciones de mi tractor, terminé de limpiar mi leñera, y luego dividí la leña por un rato. No empecé hasta después de la hora del mediodía, o habría sido un número mucho mayor.

13,000 mark is a big one. The highest I have gone is about 7000. This is a good mark for u on actifit. It means more AFIT tokens for you...smiles

Thank you very much. I am starting to increase my activity, so I am hoping to hit my goal of 15,000. I have a lot of work to finish up to prepare for winter. Hopefully I can stay active when the snow flies.
