Spring Jog: an arm workout in disguise
Thursday, March 21, 2013
I know I'm flooding you guys with blogs today, but I didn't get to post my strawberry one yesterday (because it took sooooo long). This one is actually for today, lol.
This week is Spring Break for us, so I was asked to walk my friends' dog while they were out of town. I love dogs and I'm training for a race at the end of the month so I thought that this lovely & large pooch would be a wonderful jogging buddy! I was so excited!
Well, today's weather was horrible for outdoor activities! Despite it being the 2nd day of Spring it is COLD and on top of that the wind is ridiculous, and I thought it was going to rain, as a few droplets hit my windshield on the way to the lake. Committed as I am, I stuck to my mission and started out on the trail with my buddy. He was too excited!!!
We started out at a jog, but he kept getting ahead of me so I had to tug his collar frequently. Like I said, he's a big dog! He's just a pup, but he's easily 4 ft on his hind legs already, so when I say tug, I mean TUG & lock that biceps, lol. Don't even get me started on the birds ; he was even more rambunctious as we crossed paths with the geese & I had to use both arms to steady the collar. Luckily the water was too choppy for him to be comfortable getting near it, so I didn't have to worry about that.
Long story short (kinda), I got a pretty good upper body workout to go with my jog. Thanks buddy!
