Question: Dear GreenTuna:
Since it's summertime and there are lots of fun things I'd rather be doing, can I kill two unpleasant tasks with one stone and count lawn mowing as an aerobic activity?
Answer: Summertime is the time for Mike's, cowbells, yellow shirts and other pleasant activities. Sadly, there are times when the mundane (see: lawn mowing) simply cannot be put off any longer. In certain cases lawn mowing can indeed be considered an aerobic activity. To the highly skilled, or those pressed for time, it is possible to power-walk, jog or even run like hell with a lawn mower. In fact, the last option is advisable when the approaching black storm clouds of death and 50 mph wind gusts lead you to believe that you are about to re-enact the Bishop's quest for the perfect golf game in Caddyshack.
