My current teaching schedule is pretty packed. I am up to 8 classes a week, and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I double. Needless to say, its hard on my joints and usually on Sunday I just do nothing! Well, I do cook the traditional Sunday Supper and catch up on laundry. Emma usually gets me outside for her constitutional and 2 of those are usually lengthy. But, David and I wore her out today. Let me explain?
David mentioned last night that a bike ride along the Little Miami Bike Trail might be a great Sunday venture. Especially since the weather guys were calling for high 70′s and sunshine. So after breakfast and showers, David loaded our bikes onto the back of my car. He slid Emma’s (What used to be Charlie’s) bike basket in the back seat, and off we went. We currently live about a mile from a bike parking/entrance area.
Emma had a look a panic on her face, when we started. And I am soo glad i put her harness on her and attached the leash to the basket, cause about 10 minutes into the ride she jumped! Poor Emma was dangling back in forth around my front tire. Of course it was break time and I had to let her stroll around and water the flowers for five minutes. Afterwards we strapped her back in and off we went. The official first 1/2 of the ride she sat straight up. And when we stopped and had lunch she was one happy puppy.
After the lunch break and burst of running I encouraged she settled back in the basket and actually laid down. I WILL make her love our rides, if its the only thing i accomplish this summer! We then drove home and had a lovely dinner of stuffed shells. Emma was too tired to even beg!
Later that evening Emma and I tagged along with David for a drive to his office. He had a little something to do there. Lucky for us, his office is in Dayton, KY and its situated right beside the Levy. Soo…we all climbed to the top and took an after supper stroll of about 3.5 miles.
Funny…but, i didnt plan to exercise and I did!! We had the best time, Emma got plenty of exercise as well.
