Since i left the army back in the 90’s and taken on a full-time desk job (IT Consultant) I must admit that i’ve gotten a little soft around the edges.
In my defense i’m a lazy shit – yes, that’s a defense because it’s obviously the truth. That is however changing and one of the things i’m doing these days is to take my young Rottweiler puppy with me on a nightly walk.
And, to say that the lazyness is being shelved, i’ve kept the walks up over the christmas period where i had 3 weeks off to enjoy the festive season.
In those three week i doubt i missed more than 3 walks – hell i even walked the dog on New Years Eve as we got home from the party – that was around 1:30am.
So i’m quite serious about actually shedding some of this “softness” and i’m sure it’ll help.
I want to do more – but i do have to be a bit careful as i have a dodgy knee (had a knee reconstruction done when i was younger) and the extra weight isn’t helping things. So, as soon as i’ve gotten rid of a bit of the excess then i’ll be taking on more active..errr..activities.
Not quite sure yet – i’m not a “sporty” person by aussie standards – that’s to say i don’t enjoy the typical aussie sports (Footy or Cricket) but i’m sure i’ll find something else.
Always wanted to take up some sort of martial arts – but am unsure as to what i’ll be picking – i know i don’t want an “aggressive” art..i’m plenty aggressive as it is and i don’t think it’d be a good idea to pick something that would errr…enhance that. We’ll see.
So, the nightly walk is approx. 4.71km long and i must admit, i’m probably enjoying it as much as the dog is now as well.This is the route I drag Rosie around on.
