3 Mile Malibu Walk!!! BEAUTIFUL OUT!!!

I’m counting the 245’s not loaded but better as a positive. I just cannot load them to that platform height. I need to figure out a lower platform, I have used all the mats I can find to make that one lower! No clue why the video is sideways.

The 205 and 220 loaded very well and I am proud of those. After the 220 I tried for about 10 mins on a stone I thought was the 245 but it was 295! It was puzzling just how much that this did NOT move at all, but I went ahead trying it for ten minutes until I figured out it was the wrong one! It stayed totally cemented to the floor the whole time.

HA! Once I found the 245 I am happy I could lap, and nearly load them as many times as I did! Tacky towel for the stones 205, 220, and 245.


Me and Malibu’s first photo shoot!! :D!!!


Oh man! You almost had it! Grrrr!
The first photo shoot is a success!
Absolutely gorgeous! Both of you!


Thanks!! SO CLOSE!!!

Poor Malibu is very much like me and is a real Homegirl. HA HA! She gets nervous in other people’s house, however show her another animal and she’s instantly interested! Its so hard to get a picture with her! She either looks scared and depressed or is looking for rabbits in the other direction!

3 Mile Malibu Walk :wink:

I feel good! Its one of those gorgeous almost fall days and walking Malibu this afternoon was fantastic! It supposed to be 88 tomorrow but sooner than later I’ll be melting in glee walking my dog in crisp fall weather!! AHHHH!!! :D!!!

The medley was fun! A bit of a conditioning day today. As I am typing my traps are sore --I gotta figure out what exercise caused this so I can make sure to do it again!

ANYWHO–> the real deal is that my Mama gave me some special cake she made – Maple Candy Corn Upside Down Cake. YES. ALL THOSE. She makes her own maple frosting. And she added candy corns just for me!!!

Thought of that cake while I was pushing the prowler was inspiration…and now I get to eat it!



I think I got sore from the arm over arm!! I know this is a wierd view but I want it here to check to see my technique. I promise you there’s a prowler at the other end of the rope!

It’s gotta be this or the battle ropes that have lit up my upper back! YESSSSSSSSSSSSS that’s what I am aiming for!!!


Ha!!! YEAH definitely not the same!!



3 Mile Malibu walk !
