This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

Kathy - Tromping with Leash Training

We have had a warming trend recently.  Pair this with lots of snow and you get really gloppy conditions on the hill.  Thus, we waited until later in the evening to take our tromp and we went down the road.  This is a perfect opportunity to do some leash training with the beast. Leash training falls to me on these nocturnal tromps because FL likes to have his hands at the ready to defend us from feral cats (and other more sinister threats).  The beast is doing great with leash training, she walks peacefully along with us and all is well. There were just a couple of not so stellar moments last evening, such as when we decided to chase a feral cat.  We suddenly lunged onto the shoulder of the road and started up the hill with great speed - I say we because I was on the end of the leash. Fortunately I was able to halt things before they got desperate (now just why do I think it would great to weight less than my dog?!).  The other time was not so dramatic - we just decided to walk on the far side of the road from the electric fence the beast met with her nose.  I was just protecting her from that dangerous fence you know! Great times!  Tromping and kettlebells - who needs a gym?!

Wishing you all adventures on your fitness journey!
