Figuring out how to run comfortably with the dog

I like to jog for my daily workout.

I’m not overly fast, but I have a lot of stamina.

I have no problem with long-distance runs. I recently had my son’s dog at my house for two weeks while he took a vacation with his girlfriend. The puppy is a two-year old, 60 pound Aredale named Frances. She has so much energy & always wants to play. While I’m trying to focus on work responsibilities on my laptop, she repeatedly offers me a squeaky toy to throw or bumps my leg for attention. I hoped that taking her for a run would get rid of some of that abundance of energy. Frances takes long runs with my son all the time. My son is several inches above six-feet tall & twenty-eight years old. I am just over feet tall & in my mid-fifties. For the first stretch of the run, the dog pulled me down the road faster than I wanted to go. I worried she might yank my arm out of the socket. I finally managed to slow her down to a walking pace. I then kept her at that slower speed until her tongue was hanging out. She was panting by the time I carefully increased our speed. I got us both up to a run again. She fell into my pace, & we ran together for three miles. It was really enjoyable running with the dog. It was a beneficial activity for the both of us. When we got back home, we were both breathless & wanted water. While I had the dog at my house, I ran with her every other day. Every time, we started out walking until she was ready to accommodate my slower running pace.

Cold weather is a problem for workouts

I live in a part of the country where the weather is typically moderate.

I can normally walk outside without needing a jacket.

Sometimes, the high heat & humidity can be an issue. I enjoy the chance to workout outdoors the majority of the time. I like taking six mile runs or riding my bike for a workout. Now and then, I play tennis with my son or kayak across the lake. I’ll sometimes bring my yoga mat, jump rope & free weights out on the deck so that I can breathe fresh air & benefit from the sun on my skin. I’ve noticed that I’m way more motivated when I train outside. I push myself harder & get a more beneficial workout. It’s an ideal opportunity to clear my thoughts, get rid of stress & concentrate on a more positive mood. There’s also lots of ways to switch up the workout & keep things exciting. For the last several weeks, the area has been dealing with an unpleasant weather front. The skies have been gray with strong winds, rain & temperatures down in the low forties. I am working out in my enclosed porch every morning. The workouts have become rather repetitive & discouraging. It’s a challenge to warm up my muscles & joints. I feel tight, stiff, and lethargic. I’m suffering a range of aches & pains & always want to cut the workouts short. Yesterday, I couldn’t face working out inside again. I dressed in layers of warm clothing, hopped on my bike and rode to the athletic field. I ran around the track for 30 minutes and then rode home. It felt awesome to be outside but I nearly froze to death.

Delivery of couch interrupts workout

I workout for approximately 60 minutes every day.

Since I work from a home office, I can arrange the timing of my training session to fit into my schedule.

This last week, I was told that my new couch was scheduled to arrive in the morning. I was provided a two-minute window for the delivery. The couch was supposed to show up sometime between 10:30 AM & 12:30 PM. The outdoor conditioners were especially chilly & wet, so I figured it best to complete my workout before the delivery. I hoped to exercise, take my shower & get some work done before I was disrupted by the delivery guys. I wore extra layers to workout because my home gym is exposed to the outside air and not temperature controlled. I was able to get warmed up & had just started a jump rope app on my iphone when I was distracted by a loud beeping noise. I immediately figured out that it was the sound of a big truck in reverse. The delivery people had arrived and it was only 8:45. I was obviously not prepared. I quit my workout so that I could open the front door for them. The job of unloading, unpacking & situating the couch in my living room took about 30 minutes. My whole body cooled down & my joints and muscles tightened up during that time. I was also damp with sweat, which left me feeling especially cold & aggravated. After the delivery process was complete, I resumed my workout. It was a challenge to motivate myself again. While I was thrilled to have new furniture, I was annoyed about the interruption. I should have been warned about the earlier arrival time.

Duct Sealing plus Cleaning for my A/C System

I appreciate to do things myself when I can.

  • I have hardly any tools left to do so now after simplifying my life plus moving into a new flat.

This arena doesn’t need much from myself and others in the line of handiwork as my owner handles most of the problems now. I do need to replace my shower head but I think I can afford that on my own. Or maybe I can take it off the rent but I’m not sure about things appreciate that plus would rather not bother the owner with such trivialities. He did say he’d spend my money for the duct sealing plus cleaning as my machine is starting to show some signs of wear plus tear. It’s honestly not a big task plus I think they can do it within a day or more than one. The local business on my street is quite slow so now is the perfect time to call him plus get a quote for cleaning my a/c, too. It’s been a long time since anyone has come out to service the machine so I think the owner won’t mind if all of us have that done also. I think my Heating, Ventilation plus A/C ducts are accessible from everywhere in my flat so they should be able to clean it plus service the tape easily abruptly. I’ll even help them with moving ladders plus taping if they want myself and others to assist them. I have an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C license plus worked in an air conditioning company for a few years so I think I am qualified to do the work.

The Calm Before the Hurricane

Our town is gearing up for carnaval tomorrow! I can hear more buzz in the streets plus notice more people on the beach.

It only lasts for more than four days plus then the town will be quiet again just as it is now.

It’s nice to have a change appreciate this once in a while though. Life can get quite episodic here with the same thing happening each day basically. My life is pretty much the same many days a week. I labor some each day plus have almost the same monthly regimen with eating plus exercising. I do better this way. My Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system also does better when I have a respected cleaning plus service regimen for it. It is almost appreciate having a pet dog that you have to clean plus take care of to keep it healthy plus functioning well. Ha, I sound crazy. I used to not even think about cleaning the air conditioning filters until I realized they were causing my dust irritations. I just thought it was more of a pain to do plus didn’t think of it as being unhealthy. I finally changed to a HEPA filter when I found out how much more they filter out of the air than the normal a singles do. They cost a bit more but if you spend my money a little more money you get to care about a lot healthier existence. And if you buy a washable HEPA filter then you will save money over the long run without needing to buy new filters every many months. I wish you luck.

Just Enjoyed the Best Brunch Ever

My supper this afternoon didn’t quite do it for me.

I had the proper kefir with an peach supper after my afternoon swim in the cold sea. Maybe it speeds up my metabolism afterwards plus I am hungry quite fast, but I was starving after my dip this afternoon so I made an egg plus saUSAge omelet. I fried some peppers in olive oil, along with more than one saUSAge links plus some spices, plus then added in pasta tubes plus eggs. They all cooked to a delicious consistency of lightly browned plus caramelized, plus I enjoyed every bite of it. I’m easily cheerful with my heating plus a/c plus how it cleans the air when I am cooking without the need for the exhaust fan above the stove. I am always running the fan to clean plus circulate the air in my flat so it is always being filtered. I have a HEPA filter that dislinks all particles plus smells plus only needs cleaning about once every other month. It has made my dust irritations a lot better for myself and others plus I was able to stop taking pills to free myself and others of the symptoms. I may buy another washable HEPA filter in a few months because I’ve had this a single for quite a while now plus I think it will need to be replaced a single day soon. They don’t cost that much if you look online plus make sure you get the respected size because there are many strange sizes plus some of them look the same. But please, go with a HEPA filter.

Keep Your House Warm with a Good Heating System

I’m enjoyable today before the absurd stuff starts tomorrow in my town.

It is the week of Carnaval plus this town is famous for having a lot of parties plus parades so this arena is going to explode with tourists overnight.

It’s a town called Sitges plus it is only about 25,000 people normally but tomorrow the population will easily go up by fifty percent or more. I don’t mind because it will only be for a few days plus then back to normal next week. I know I need to maybe dress up appreciate everyone else. I need to check my furnace today because my friends are coming to stay tomorrow night plus it could be a cold a single. I’ve had some problems with it in the past plus noticed that it isn’t heating appreciate it used to last year so it may be time for some service. I can call my Heating, Ventilation plus A/C provider to come check it out but I don’t think they will be able to come out by tomorrow so I may have to do some labor on it myself. I think it may just be dirty plus losing efficiency due to that so my first step will be to clean everything. It has a washable HEPA filter so that will be simple to clean. I may open the air handler plus take a look inside to make sure everything is clean. The machine has a heat pump so that is another opening of something that could be malfunctioning. I know I have my labor cut out for myself and others today.

Duct Sealing and Cleaning for my AC System

I’ll even help them with moving ladders and taping if they want myself and others to assist them

I enjoy to do things myself when I can. I have hardly any tools left to do so now after simplifying my life and moving into a current flat. This locale doesn’t need much from myself and others in the line of handiwork as my owner handles most of the problems now. I do need to upgrade my shower head however I guess I can afford that on my own. Or maybe I can take it off the rent but I’m not sure about things enjoy that and would rather not bother the owner with such trivialities. He did say he’d pay for the duct sealing and cleaning as my component is starting to show some signs of wear and tear. It’s legitimately not a immense task and I guess they can do it within a day or multiple. The local company on my street is quite slow so now is the perfect time to call him and get a quote for cleaning my cooling system, too. It’s been a long time since anyone has come out to repair the component so I guess the owner won’t mind if the people I was with and I have that done also. I guess my Heating as well as Air Conditioning ducts are accessible from everywhere in my flat so they should be able to scrub it and repair the tape legitimately abruptly. I’ll even help them with moving ladders and taping if they want myself and others to assist them. I have an Heating as well as Air Conditioning license and worked in an a/c company for a few years so I guess I am qualified to do the work.

Maybe it speeds up my metabolism afterwards and I am hungry quite fast, however I was starving after my dip this morning so I made an egg and saUSAge omelet. I fried some peppers in olive oil, along with many saUSAge links and some spices, and then added in pasta tubes and eggs.

Quality AC Service is Just a Touch of a Button Away

Remember when you had to open the red pages to find someone to help you? I guess the people I was with and I had about many red page books in our lake house and it would take about numerous minutes of looking through them to find the right company when the people I was with and I needed repair on something.

I used to advertise my painting company in the red pages back in the day until a single day when the FBI called myself and others because I was using their initials in my ad.

My company initials were FBI so I would use that as an advertising tool to catch people’s eyup. When the people I was with and I needed some Heating as well as Air Conditioning repair the people I was with and I would have to look through all of the ads then decide by their ad if they were a nice company or not. There were no reviews to look at online because there was no online back then. Now, the people I was with and I have all the local companys just the touch of a button away from being at our lake house to help us within a few minutes. Life is a bit different nowadays and it has legitimately streamlined the process of finding nice help with the invention of the internet. I can find the best Heating as well as Air Conditioning brand at the cheapest price within a couple minutes when it used to take myself and others afternoons of research to do the same. I am looking at getting a current heating component in my flat so I need to look around online to see where to buy it as the local company down the road doesn’t have any at the moment. Life is much better in some ways now.
