New Loot!

After class today, I stopped by my local running store, and picked up a few necessities. First on the list? Shoes. My old pair has about 300 miles on them, so it was time to pick up a new pair; thankfully, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7 have been discontinued so that means they were on sale! Sweet. Next on the list? Socks. 2 pairs -- check. Shot bloks, black cherry -- check. New tube of body glide -- check. Sports bra (also on sale) -- check. The bra is an exact duplicate of one I bought a few months ago, and I love it. So, now that I'm all set up with loot, I'm gonna go...read. What? You thought I was gonna say "run"? Heck no, it's too hot out right now. Maybe later, but we'll see; today is supposed to be family walk day with Jerry and Scooter, but they may let me squeeze in a run as well.

Until then, I'm gonna follow the Scooter-afternoon-sequence-of-relaxation. It's kinda like the flow of sun salutations in yoga, but it's designed by the foremost leader in relaxation: My dog, and it requires very, very little effort.

Pose I: Super-dog pose. Legs extended out behind you, arms out in front, belly resting comfortably on the carpet. Chin to the carpet, and eyes closed. Breathe.
Pose II: Dead dog pose. Lie on your side, arms and legs extended in front of you. Head back on the carpet. Breathe.
Pose III: Aware that someone is taking your picture pose. Similar posture to super-dog, but lift head and chin off the floor and look up. Don't forget to breathe.
Pose IV: Someone is opening the refrigerator pose. This pose demands the greatest level of alertness without actually moving off the carpet -- careful; it's a pivotal balance between relaxation and interest. Again, don't forget to breathe -- you'll need it in order to hop off the carpet and scamper into the kitchen for a snack.
Videos are forthcoming from Yogi Scooter. He just needs to find the time to work on them; until then, there are toys to play with, bones to chew, and kibble to ingest.

Wes said...

Can you ask Scooter to demo the "Angel on the Bed" pose? I'm wanting to perfect that one. I got that snack down :-D

We have a Scooter in our family too and I spent the night with him last night. He is the best minding dog I have ever seen. Your Scooter is darling too...and really needs to go into professional modeling!

chia said...

Scooter is sooo cute :-). Instantly want him!

Woot for loot!

David said...

He just lies like that so he can rest his weiner on the carpet, you know. I would do yoga in a different spot if I were you! LOL

Nice stash of stuff you got! Always good to get your fav shoes on sale. It's almost as good as free beer.

Cute dog. Those pics make me want to crash out !

sRod said...

300 miles? I've aways been told 500 miles. Maybe the running store trying to get more purchases out of you! At least they were on sale--wait, they're discontinuing the Adrenaline 7? Crap, that's my shoe!

Erin said...

Makes me want to take up Yoga if it's that relaxing.

J~Mom said...

YAY for new stuff!! I just got new shoes too, I think we are on a similar shoe schedule. ;>P

teacherwoman said...

Wahoo! NEW LOOT! Funny thing.. I got new loot today too! Might have to post mine as well.

That sports bra... what brand is that? Just curious ...

I just got the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7 too! I was going to get the 8s but then I saw the 7 on sale. I go through so many pairs that when I can save a few $ I do.

Marcy said...

Pffftttt Lisa needs to shut her yap. You're not on HER schedule, you're on mine since I just bought a new pair also. And I also only get 300 miles out of them. Darn it!

Cute Scooter pics!

That was hilarious! Doggie yoga--Scooter is the perfect teacher for this practice. He's got such great form!

Crystal said...

Wilson favors those poses as well. They must be favorites among the canines.

I need some new shoes, too. I actually bled through mine tonight, not a happy moment.

New loot always makes me smile. So does doggy yoga.

Kevin said...

What's funny is that someone actually wrote a book called http://www.amazon.com/Doga-Yoga-Dogs-Jennifer-Brilliant/dp/0811841677

It apparently has pictures of dogis doing doga poses and then explains how to adapt it to humans

Way too funny. Scooter is a cute doggy

I loved the opening the fridge pose. Cool on all the new gear. i did shoes today too. It looks like a few of us ladies are on the same shoe cyle, weird.

nwgdc said...

L*I*S*A said...

I think that's an exercise routine I can stick with.

Non-Runner Nancy said...

Oh to be you, Scoot. How adorable!

Margo said...

Those are my shoes! Scooter is adorable! The pups definitely know what they're doing regarding relaxation time.

RazZDoodle said...
