Day 905... sneakers

Monday, March 17, 2014

I exchanged my clodhopper boots for sneakers after my morning walk with Cooper. I am much faster in sneakers. I did my normal 10 mile loop this afternoon... and it took my 30 minutes less time. I didn't realize the boots slowed me down that much. This means I can walk further next time, maybe do 13 miles. Won't be tomorrow though. I have the gaggle of girls walking with me in the morning, followed by a lunch date. I will walk for a little while after lunch, but not my usual 10 miles. It might be a good day to get on the rower. Wednesday I have an appointment in the afternoon, so it will be another short mileage day. That is okay. I walked over 125 miles last week, so maybe taking it easier this week would be a good idea.

I started my pantry clear out, but I still want a few fresh fruits and vegetables, so a grocery store trip will have to happen. That will probably be Wednesday's chore after my appointment. I also have to buy cookies for Cooper. I give him one every time he goes in the crate. He loves his cookies!

    WOOHOO TO NO BOOTS !! Even though I live in a VERY SNOWY area,, it IS the city,, so the streets and well the Sidewalks NOT AS MUCH are plowed ! And my sneakers are special made for me,, with special inserts formed for my feet exactly as they are,, which is NOT GOOD !! I have TRIED on boots, but they HURT WICKLY !! And since I can get away with it,, I LOVE IT !! WOOHOOO Also o ANY DAY I can when it's around 20 or above,, or 10 with NO WIND,,,I also will wear just a vest,, with a sweat shirt under it,, and MAYBE a log sleeve shirt.

GLAD you get to walk so much, enjoy the walk with the girls,, they UP SO FAST !! OH YEAH !

    A couple of times last month, I was able to wear sandals while walking the pups - then back to full shoes. I always push the season for shorts & T shirts.
