Yesterday, I blogged about trying the elliptical at the gym. I tried it today for 40 minutes - 2 miles. It really pushes my heart rate up, but it doesn't seem too hard. I actually go slower than I feel like I could, because the machine is telling me my heart rate is too high. My friend LindaKay suggested I clip my pedometer to the hem of my shorts - it seemed to count more steps that way.
Walked the pups this evening, after it got cooler again. They were really eager to walk. I have new neighbors moving in next door - of course, both pups went rabid barking. I keep telling them "No one is afraid of you!"
Along the walk, there are patches of high grass from all the rain recently. Both pups get into it and sniff like crazy - some of it's over their heads!
