Decided that I was gonna take a whack at the 5k your way walk plan, since I have been walking since it is past the peek swimming season here. And no, I do not have a gym or Y membership, yes, I am looking and hoping I can afford one soon, and then I will try to do some swimming year round! Anyway...
So it went great today, except I took two of my sister's dogs, instead of just Brody I brought Riley along instead. Talk about a case of cannot handle it, Riley will have to try going along some, although before he goes again we are going to have to work on his recall abilities. Without him Brody comes back no problem, but if another dog is around who doesn't come back Brody assumes he doesn't need to listen either.
This weekend I also started in on cleaning the basement of our barn (as we call it the bottom barn) out so that I can try to find away to heat it and use it for walking/exercising this winter. Talk about getting in over your head! I will be putting enough exercise in just cleaning the bottom barn that I should loose some weight! Everybodies crap (and actual crap not stuff just being called crap), used goodness knows what, broken glass, and miscellaneous farm equipment strewn all over the place! Ugh! Have already started burning some of the old hay and box cut outs just to get them out of the w way so the real cleaning can get done.
Will have to get some pictures of how it looks now so that I can see the how the end result is different for myself when I am finally done.
