Bikes are so last year – as maggie found out
Scootering is no longer just for kids! Adults of all ages are taking it up, and for many a mother this latest craze has provided fun and fitness!
what fun i have had since i took up scootering. although i have been cycling to work for years, jumping on to my microwhite machine has seemed like a much more exciting adventure.
at first, i couldn’t help but feel a little self-conscious with people looking at me. However, the thrill of whizzing down the street back to my house at the end of the day soon compensated for feeling a bit conspicuous.
i also discovered that you can incorporate it into an exercise regime as scootering burns around 140 calories for 15 minutes of exercise. by practising various jumps and turns, i soon had a good work-out regime built into my mornings.
nowadays, i scoot our dog tyson to the park for his morning run, and this has also turned into a bigger adventure – now we’re faster, we seem to be catching more cats unawares! Luckily he’s on a lead. However, because i don’t want to make my small dog run fast all the way, we scoot along in fits and starts, and have frequent stops to investigate various smells along the way – the dog, i mean!
scootering has lots of health benefits, so do encourage children and grandchildren to take up this fun hobby.
scootering to school, the park, the shops, all are good for getting outdoors, burning energy, and getting loads of fresh air. make sure children wear protective gear, though.
