Here I am, sitting on one of the steps we often climb.
These steps are located at one of my favorite parks close to my house.
It is called the Lakefront Park. A dog-friendly park with a PAWSOME view of Lake Michigan. Dogs are welcome to play along the beach area during the months of September – May.
Here I am at the beginning of our stair climb.
How many steps? 72 steps
It does not take us a long time to get to the top.
To access the steps again, we have to go down a hill.
OH I LOVE this part. Here I come…sprinting down.
Then we pass the beach path and park …
and start over again with our stair climb.
Depending on the weather, we do this about 10 times
Did you know that Stair Climbing for 10 minutes a day will burn the same amount of calories as a 20 minute jog. Stairs are great for cardiovascular health and conditioning. It’s a PAWSOME lower body workout for you and your dog.
How do I climb the stairs? I am on a leash (6ft long)……mostly my mom keeps up with my speed especially in the beginning. I’m a Senior Golden DOG but I still got Speedy Golden Legs.
If you have access to stairs, try to incorporate stair climbing
with your daily walks and/or run with your dog.
Be Aware of Stair Climbing FUN …
your dog might develop “stair-obsessions”
After our stair climbing, I hang out here …
while mom does pulls up and stretches.
I also stretch by bowing/leaning backwards as I watch the morning sun.
I am very fortunate to have access to this wonderful park.
I wish I know more about these steps … history and building process.
I spend 3 times a week in this park and I Golden LOVE it.
This post was inspired by my friend George The LAD, who blogs on weekends (Saturday/Sunday Steps) about the different places in his town/city that have steps. It’s lovely to see/read George steps adventures, great photographs too. Click here to check out George’s blog and steps blog posts.
