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 there...so 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!
