"Sport ist Mord"

Its true I am telling you. (In case you don't speak German the saying above means Exercise is Murder) -

I know its an advertisement but it underlines my point!

See I have been really good this last week. The doggies got a walk every day, the days I work at the office and restaurant - Grumpy took them and I rode my bike when I got home at night.

Sunday I was scheduled for Busch Gardens. I was to attend the selling alcohol training and then go to the shop and see where they needed me. However when I went to our store they had enough people and I could go home which was great. The weather was nice, not to warm and I decided it would be a great day to walk to pups down to the Nature Park.

Its quite a little trip (about 6 mile round trip) but we did good. It takes about and hour each way. We stopped at the doggy park to get some water and I let them run around a bit since no one was there.
However I found that Mac really does not like little yappy mini pincher - there was one in a yard and she nearly took my arm off. We took the same route again yesterday -

YES I walked 12 miles in two day are you proud of me!!!

One the way home we heard the little yappy thing from a block away so I went to the other side of the street until I thought it was save. What I didn't know was that there was some miniature collie in another house - that thing cam at us barking and followed us down the fricken side walk. It was all I could do to hold back Mac and Sassy.

See the reason we don't go to dog parks is Sassy plays very aggressive and she has no problems biting others. Of course the owners from that damn collie were nowhere in sight. I was so pissed. Luckily I finally managed to get my two out of there.

So today I am paying dearly for all the exercise. Not only do my legs hurt but my upper body especially my arms do too. I am not surprised after all I had to pull 220+ pound of determined dogs in the opposite direction they wanted to go. And of course I am working tonight at the restaurant and if I remember right we have a few big parties. Lets hope I will have the use of my arms by then.

I know some of you wanted to comment but the comment link is gone - not sure why but I am working on it

Jin said - Hey, I can't post a comment on your newest post? The comment link is gone.

I wanted to say I LMAO at the commercial!


GREAT job! All that walking!!!

I know what you mean about your arms hurting. I usually hold Bean when we take her to the lake front & her strength is incredible! I try to run with her, but I can hardly keep up (and I run fairly fast! LOL) so she ends up pulling my arms. They always feel like lead the next day! HA! lol

Jin - okay I guess they implemented some changes in the blogger. Now you can change the time and date of your post and you can set the comment function for each post separately.

I wouldn't dare to run with mine too dangerous.

Whoohoo, I am thrilled that the the comments are back in action. But now, I can't remember what I wanted to say. Dammit!

Dino aka Katy said...

Nicole - LOL well you wrote something!!

Hope your muscles have unlaxed a bit and you aren't too sore.

One of my friends went back to Germany the other day, he is in the Luftwaffe. I tried to talk him into taking me with him but no dice. I want to go back and live in St Goar.

jin said...

Ooooo...I like the new colours!!!

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - Yeah I know the feeling. I would love to go back sooner

Jin - yeah isnt' it pretty

Dan said...

Katy! 12 miles in 2 days! That's AWESOME!!!!! It's so cool that both of our current posts are about walking! How cool is that? Funny video. And great blog look!

Dino aka Katy said...

Dan - thanks. Yeah I thought it was funny that you posted about walking too.

Bubs said...

That's something to have big dogs pulling on your arms--I just started running with our new arrival, the 80 pound shepherd/rott/husky mix. Whew. It adds a whole new dimension to a simple 3 mile run having an 80 pound dog pulling on you and bumping into you.

Dino aka Katy said...

Bubs - I don't think I'd try to run with mine. Its all I can do to hold them just walking if we were to run I would end up face down being dragged after them ;)

Bathroom Hippo said...

6 miles a day..WOW.

I'm sure I've walked that much in total...but all at once nope. I've done 4 for exercise but it really hurt my legs.

Dino aka Katy said...

Hippo - well what can I say I am a sucker for punishment. Well actually I enjoy walking on a nice day - hanging out with the pups and all

Dino aka Katy said...

Angel - yeah I miss the gym but I am just to busy and its so expensive
