Context

First I read this:
He spent time during the lockout working out in Arizona and lifting weights at Lake Forest Health and Fitness Center. The bulk of his grunt work occurred at his north suburban home, running laps in his backyard and completing drills in his front yard.
I had the funniest mental picture of a guy running in circles in his suburban backyard, maybe dodging a swing set or a Weber grill. Then I imagined a guy working out in the front yard next to the driveway, the lamppost, the mailbox, and maybe a flower bed.

But then I read this paragraph:
"I did it there because I have (10 acres) of land,'' [Brian] Urlacher said. "It's nice when you don't even have to leave the house.
Oh. That's different.
