Wind Sprints with Charley

Wordy Wednesday!
If you signed up for the Christmas in July, you should have received an email by now with your swap partner. Today, Sprinkles will have all the partners listed on her blog. Stop on over and see who is participating this year!

And, I am sorry about the problem with this post! When I created it on Saturday, I accidentally set it to post on 7/4 instead of 7/24. So those of you who get email notifications saw that I had a new post. But then I set it to a future date and you couldn’t see it. Here it is! Hope it was well worth the wait!

Well, I have had enough.  Enough of summer, enough of the heat, enough of being lazy.  Finn is not a fan of the heat but Charley doesn’t seem to mind as much.  So after reading this post last week at To Dog with Love, I decided Charley and I were doing wind sprints.

Our development ends near our backyard, so I decided we were going to use three points to run towards and then head back to our starting point.

1.  The basketball hoop

2.  The bend in the road

3.  Go around the bend in the road to the left of #2 back around to #3, back to start.

I was prepared with the Get Off Your Butt, Work Out With Your Mutt shirt from Slim Doggy.  That’s right.  Finn and Charley got it for me for my birthday.  Little did they know it meant they would be getting of their butts too.  Muh huh huh *evil laugh*

Ok, here we go…

I could probably add this on to our early morning walks from time to time.  I know Charley got a little warm because on our way around the loop, he just caught across the grass back to our house.  I really had no problem with that, it was super hot!

I also want to give a shout out to Jack Joseph’s Mom.  She’s been doing a monthly fitness challenge and her posts motivated me to do this too.  She doesn’t know it, but one day when there was just me in the office, I did ten burpees in the conference room.  It was awesome!
