How Weird is My Dog?

8 09 2009

Good morning!

Is it really Tuesday already?  Someone pinch me, I’m only dreaming that it’s Tuesday right?  Because I don’t feel quite awake yet, it could be quite possible that I AM dreaming!  🙂

Darn…  the long weekend is over.  But the good news is that it is TUESDAY, outdoor run day! So I better type fast since I need to get ready to head out soon.

Labor Day Feats included a weight training workout and rollerblading with the dogs (blading while NOT ended up with scrapes or missing teeth – a feat indeed!)

Weight Training (Chest, Biceps, Shoulders)

TM warmup for 5 minutes, followed by some arm circles and general movement to get the blood flowing.

  • DB Chest Press pyramid 4 working sets of 12, 11, 10, 8 reps
  • Incline DB Chest Flyes 4 working sets of 15, 12, 10, 10
  • Uneven Modified Pushups (1 hand on floor, 1 hand on medicine ball) 3 working sets of 16
  • DB Bicep Curl (seated, supinating) 4 working sets of 8 reps
  • Side Lateral Raises 4 working sets of 10 reps
  • Upright DB Rows 3 working sets of 15, 10, 11

A lot of chest stretching occurred between sets. 🙂

After weights and still before breakfast we decided the dogs could use  something to wear them out a bit more than their usual walk (we loved how tired they were after the 5.5 this weekend.)  So we took Cesar Milan’s idea, threw our rollerblades in the truck with the dogs, and tried to find a somewhat ‘flat’ area nearby.  Flat is hard to come by in Highlands Ranch!

They actually did really well!  A few close calls with the leashes, but neither of us were tripped by the dogs which I really thought would happen!  Rascal runs dangerously close to the wheels sometimes but he made it home with paws intact!

And tired they were.  Here’s Riley taking a snooze.  She actually sleeps this way.  What a weirdo!  If you ask me that looks COMPLETELY uncomfortable, but she does it all the time, so maybe I shouldn’t knock it till I try it!  😉

Plenty more to post, plus yesterday’s eats but that will have to happen AFTER the run, as I need to skeedaddle!  I’ll be back on a bit later!

Hope your Tuesday is off to a SNAZZY start!
