Fresh pineapples, lemons and strawberries are plentiful the Galesburg woman A new column about the Involved and talented Galesburg woman. Whether she's a career woman or homemaker, she finds time for self-expression. Her lifestyle is that of the 70's. By Alice Brpckman J, C. Augustson has discovered at the tender age of 2% year$ that it is hard work keeping up with his mother, Carol Augustson, on her jogging excursions. Seems that all the rainy spring weather played havoc with J. C.'s pl^ns. On a recent and ready to. add their flavor and color to desserts.

Chill overnight. balmy day, Mrs. Augustson lookfed back to see what was keeping J. C., and found him stuck in the mud up to his ankles, just watching his mother iget further ahead. Mrs. Augustson is the wife of Skip Augustson, an industrial arts teacher at Gales/burg High School^ who shares his wife's entliusiasm for gardening and collecting art, but can't quite see himself as a jogger. Together with talkative J. C, who has no trouble keeping up his end of a conversation, and Jacob, born Sunday, and a spirited retriever named Suzy, whose specialty is golf bails, they reside at 1022 N. Academy St. As women's physical fitness teacher at the YMCA until recently, Mrs. Augustson experiences the joy really feeling fit and heilthy. For. her, physical" fitness has become a way of life and it Is easy to understand her happiness at being in peak physical siiape. She worked through her eighth month of pregnancy, and there was a touch of envy on the women's faces who huffed and puffed in trying to keep up with their leader, as she effortlessly directed the exercise class. Physical fitness has been an important part Of Mrs. Augustson's life since her cise from chores around the house, Mrs. Augustson said housework is more likely to increase fatigue, rather than help build strength. Besides, chores don't really give joy and pleasure to most women, but taking the time for active exercise or sport will. Best Exercise The kind of exercise which is most beneficial for increasing stamina and relieving tension is one which requires the heart and lungs to work strenuously by using lots of oxygen to bring about deep breathing. After a period of time^ a person's heart and lungs work more efficiently, because the heart pumps more blood with each heartbeat. The over-all effect is that a person is healthier, and he has increased his chances for a longer life. V Aerobics is the name for iixercise of this type, and Mrs. Augustson uses as her guide a book written by Mildred Cooper and Dr. Kenneth Cooper entitled "Aerobics for Women." The Coopers have devised charts which establish goals for any woman wishing to follow a program of Aerobics. The charts take into account an individual's age and height, and the Coopers recommend that regardless of a woman's age, medical super- youth in Chicago.

Her love of the outdoors is one reason she wanted to be a P.E. teacher. It always gave her a feeling of freedom to take a class outdoors for tennis lessons, when all the other teachers were inside, she related. But there is a more compeVing reason why Mrs, Augustson is an advocate of physical fitness — it is simply something she must do to feel good. She's more limber, has more stamina, sleeps better, but more importantly, she feels less tense, which she believes is vital for everyone, but especially for mothers with young children.

Ilie exercises involved in the Tennis is not mcluded in the Aerobics charts because it would be difficult to rate, since each player's skills would vary. Yet tennis is a type of Aerobic exercise since it involves running. When her husband was stationed in California with the U,S. Navy, Mrs. Augustson played tennis until seven months pregnant with her first child. Even now, she continued to jog through her eighth month of pregnancy, to reach her weekly goals of running IVi miles in 13 minutes at least four times. Tennis and jogging are good exercises for over-all shaping up, she said, but any type of running exercise is particularly beneficial for the legs.
