Make-Do Mondays with AnnBack in high school, I was on the track team. My coach suggested I jog with light hand weights to gain arm strength simultaneous to the lower body work of running. Being a lifelong “make-doer,” I didn’t run out and buy the ready-made “heavy hands” that were available in stores. Instead, I rummaged through the odds and ends clunking around in the garage and found several railroad spikes we’d collected from the nearby abandoned tracks.I wrapped them with black electricians’ tape for a smooth grip.Decades Just a few short years later, I still use them.I wrapped two individual spikes for the lightest option.They fit nicely in my hands and can be used as weapons, if necessary.I also created a heavier option by wrapping two together.My running spikes complement my pathetic but functional humble make-do home gym.How do you make do?
