An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

My daughter (Sarah) had a take your pet to work day, today.  She borrowed Shiva.  So, we had no dog walk this morning.
I made up for it by hitting the asphalt.  I got out and jogged (slogged) 2 miles in 30 minutes.  Yes.  I know.  Pretty slow.  But given my weight and other health factors, I’m quite pleased.  I started like gang-busters last December, but I thought I’d broken my left foot (stress fracture) and had to stop in mid-January.  Turns out it was “only” a bit of arthritis and it seems there is nothing to be done about it.  The podiatrist made me up some shoe / arch inserts, but all they did was make my feet hurt like I’d been beaten with a cane.  And that was after only a 30 minute walk to the pool.  I tried the inserts again a few days later, but they were agony almost immediately (literally within steps).  I haven’t worn them since.
So, between the 2 miles and the 60 minutes of treading water, I’m feeling pretty tired.  Healthy tired, but tired.  Now I just have to see if I can keep it up.

 Waiting to go inside…  Is that camera still on me?
 Did someone say,
“Squirrel”?
 British gardeners
require constant
supervision…
 Hey Youse,
give us a treat!
 Just a little shade…
 In yer face training…  Are you ever gonna
get a life, Dad?
 The kennel never
said my new home
was a fixer-upper.
 I’ve gotta do
everything myself
around here…
 Yeah, the garden’s ok now,
but wait until I’m done with it…
 A quick pause
between
making trouble.
 That’s right – I’m gorgeous!  Not quite enough shade…
 She’s not fully trained,
but I like blonds.
 There’s like
NO privacy
in this house-hold!
 Squirrel???  Someone please
take that camera-phone
off him!
