Yesterday I ran 40-minutes. I'm working my way up! It's slow progress but it's progress. Two steps forward, one step back. No more three steps forward and one step back! I've been mountain biking some as well, and I'm absolutely loving it! It's a great x-training tool for easy rides and bike handling.
The other day I was at the recycling centre and couldn't believe what can be recycled. You name it, you can recycle it! They had shoe bins, plastics, metal, mixed metal, lights, bathroom fixtures, housewares, appliances, E-waste, paper products, newspaper, cardboard…the list is long. Basically, if one were to take the time to recycle what they put in their garbage bins, it would basically be everything (except chip bags, VHS and the like). It got me thinking….we waste a lot in this society!
If you were to go down there today, you could literally find enough scraps of metal, wood, and old appliances to build yourself a lofty home! It makes me think of how much "things" I throw away that could easily be used by someone else. When I was there I saw about a dozen items that I could easily have used as well. But, trying to down-grade to literally a bike and bike box, I had to refrain myself from picking them up. At least, now I know how I can down-grade!
