Well, I did 2 miles this morning. Hopefully I can keep plugging away at it.
My daughter Jen is thinking about a Triathlon she said there is one in York for beginner women.
GO JEN Hurray! I'll just sit back and cheer. Hilarious!

On our way home I saw a sign about a 5 mile walk/run in one of the small towns near us. I think I will drive over there and see just what it said.

If nothing else, the cooler weather is getting me out and about more. I have taken short walks the past three days. Lots of chores are making my feet sore, but the rest of the body feels better for doing the exercise.

The walk was this past Sat just hadn't taken down the sign yet. There is a web site with local events I'm going to see what else there might be for me to do. I know just how you feel Stormy seems like everytime I get on a roll to try and get a bit healthier something comes up. Even when I start out slow and don't push too hard or too fast I seem to end up with some type of injury.

I'm prob not as good as I should be...but walking Philly is prob doing me some good. I'm just tired though...so I think I need a break and then I can get back to working up to 13 mi by next Sept:) Gonna try to get there...but I think I'll take a break from regulated activities until after Jamie's bday on the 25th...then I'll go back to regulated workouts and walks. I'm just gonna do what feels good:)

Those really long walks are tough on the shins and hips. Even when I was your age and used to walk 5 to 7 miles daily, I had to take off at least 2 days week to let them recover. The longest walk I ever did was 28 miles. That was back in the 70's and i was young enough that it didn't even bother me. i think I wore Earth Shoes for that one. The only kind of sneaks around then were Keds.

:) You are right...my shins are killer. I don't know why they hurt so much from walking on the road and sidewalks...cuz I'm fine after 6 miles on trails...but not anything else. They hurt bad then:(

I grew up in the city Harrisburg. Back then we walked almost every where. Since then the most walking I did was when the kids were little and I would take them on pony rides. I would saddle up the pony and put one of the kids on it and start walking. Julie got her first pony for her 3rd Birthday and I fell and broke my ankle that same week. Just a small break and the Dr put on a walking cast. I kept going back to him because I was wearing out the bottom of the cast taking her for rides, we are talking 3+miles. Finally after 3 weeks and 3 casts my Dr said do you have a good pair of tight boots? Just go home and put them on. Hilarious!

I've been thinking that maybe I should go down to Josh's house and walk there. It's pretty flat and I could take Cody with me. He needs some leash training. He still pulls and wants to walk ahead of you.

Well Josh got hurt a couple of months ago. He was trying to keep to his regular activities but the injury just isn't getting better. He will be off work for a couple of weeks resting and going to PT. Walking Cody on a leash doesn't help with the injury so I was thinking yesterday that if I went down I could work with Cody and get my walking in.

Holly- go right out and get an EasyWalk harness. The leash hooks up on a cheststrap. It makes ALL the difference. Addy was impossible on collar and leash. Don't know why but EasyWalk works great! My friend also said she'd carry a pocket of treats and keep talking to the dog and give a treat once in a while. kept the dog focused on her more than on the trail.

Sounds good Sally. I have never had to try to train an animal to do anything. I only ever had poodles and they just always seemed to do whatever we told them to. They were potty trained by their owners as small pups.
