Walking the Dogs in the rain....

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Ever had to walk two big dogs in the rain, in your high heels? Funny question huh? Well, our house in up for sale and we had a scheduled showing. I left work early to get home to stage the house, put on my walking clothes and get my 2 labs out of the house. But when I got there the Realtor & her clients were already in my rush to get the dogs out, I just leashed them up and took off walking, in my heels, dress clothes and YES it began to rain! The dogs were very excited to get a walk so they took off, pulling me behind...I thought right away that my neighbors would think I have lost my mind...half way down the street my legs & feet are screaming at me and I am thinking, "why didn't I just get them in the car and take them for a ride?" Yep, I had lost my mind...but kept justifying to myself that at least it's a workout and maybe a good calf workout at that!

Here's what I learned...two days later...there's a reason we wear the proper clothes to work out; my feet & toes feel like they are broken and my knees & hips are very tight and sore. When I got home from work the other night the dogs looked at me like they wanted another round....yes, that will happen, but only with sneakers on!
