After looking at some pictures taken of me at the Calgary Stampede, I figured it was time to do something about my rapidly spreading thighs (and butt).So, I thought, I could buy a bike and ride it down our gravel roads with the dogs and we could both work on "legging up" at the same time.(please pardon the messy yard - we've been gone for 2 months and it will take a while to get a handle on it)
It was a success.
If you consider the fact that none of us can walk now a success.
My thighs and I will tell you that our roads are not near as flat as they look and the dogs will tell you they aren't as soft either.
Hemp tore more than a few pads.
Caution - graphic photo:It slowed him down to a trot for the first time in his life.
Fortunately, a good friend, Vickie, prophetically gave me a bottle of her new pad toughening formula just this past weekend.We will be putting it to the test this week.
Never fear though, with some booties on their feet, the boys will be back running again in no time. However, when we got home today, they ran ahead of me and showed me that they'd prefer more traditional method of transport.Me too boys. Me too.
