I want healthy feet and purple shoes!

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

So I'm pretty bad at tracking my exercise so if you looked at my tracker, you'd think I never exercise. Not true.

I have a 3lb puppy, Maximus, and he HAS to be walked. He is such a wild puppy because we live in an apartment and we can't just let him outside to run around. I've been taking him on long walks (he refuses to go potty outside so this is very frustrating.) Because he's so small, I get stopped like a zillion times by people who want to talk about their dogs and to pet mine. Because he's only 3lbs, I usually have to stop and carry him because he gets so tired - especially when we went 5 1/2 miles on monday.

Here is Maximus last night before I took him on our 3 mile walk.

Anyway, I've been looking into the benefits of going barefoot in walking.

There's lots of benefits to going barefoot and here's some links:
(This site has TONS of articles) www.barefooters.o

Because I want to be completely healthy, I want to get my feet healthy! Sometimes walking barefoot isn't safe if you're walking in the city in the street or is not allowed when you want to go shopping or out to eat (you can drive barefoot though!)

These are running, walking and rock climbing shoes for men and women. They're for people who are into the barefoot movement but want to avoid glass and pinecones and sharp rocks while running.

I really want to buy a pair of the lilac Vibram Five Fingers!

    hahaha.. those are nnnice!!!
    i walk barefoot at our 'dacha' - the summer house. we don't have any snakes or spiders around, so it's safe enough. of course, feet require some serious pedicuring after that, but it IS very good for you as it activates all the necessary spots on the feet that are responsible for various organs.

    your puppy is very cute. i'm thinking about getting a yorkie. i did wonder whether small gods like that can go long distances. have you ever run with yours? can it keep up?
