More Stairs and Trails *Now with Extra Stretching! - Sundays in My City

The dogs and I went for another training run at the Snow World steps this morning.  Training? Yes, for Tough Mudder...again.

This time we ran up the path and down via some mountain bike trails.  Up 1/3 using the path, up 1/3 via frog jumping up the steps, down the trails. Up 2/3 via the steps and down via the trails.  This time I made sure to stretch before, after and between rounds. Last week I could barely walk for a few days; I literally hobbled because I didn't stretch enough!  Again, a good workout and the dogs love it there.


The dogs seemed to think my frog-jumping was silly and decided to just stand in my way.
Thirsty, I guess!
Tired pups!
The sun that was supposed to be out today didn't show up but it was warmer than last week. I'm sure we'll do it several more times between now and 24 August.

Steps, paths, trails...take whatever path interests you over to Unknown Mami for more SIMC posts.

  1. I hope you get in shape soon. We too have to prepare for our mountain walking this summer.

    1. I'm actually in pretty good shape but the Mudder is a whole different ball game! I need some extra shape for that :)

  2. I really enjoy taking my dogs on my photo hikes too. They seem to love the walks outdoors as much as I do.

  3. I loved the dog diary today. I almost did the same today, featuring my German shepherd. Great work!

  4. Looks like a great path and good luck on tough mudder!

  5. They are so cute, kudos to you for getting them some great exercise. Tough Mudder, sounds exciting.

  6. At least you have great companions!
    I gave you a shout out on Thursday -- http://www.astarinmyownuniverse.com/2013/04/12/travel-the-world-thursday-brunssum/

    Have a great week!

  7. Good for you!
    I wish I could run and jump but my left knee has been hurting for a couple of months - but slowly...I hope it will get better one day, snif. No white flours, no sugars though...
    Dogs are great way to get out!

  8. Wow! What an intense workout! It's so awesome that you have the determination and willpower to do that Tough Mudder race. A friend of mine did it, and he said it was a lot of fun but a lot of hard work. Good luck, and I love the photos of your dogs.
