Wednesday’s run: 3 miles (sort of)
Friday’s run: 5 miles
Today’s run: 3 miles
It was a long week/weekend. We adopted the most affectionate 2-year old Hound Mix from a local shelter last Wednesday, so in between runs I’ve been trying my best to get her and the cat comfortable living together. I took the dog with me for my 3 miler this week, and she was totally into it…for the first mile. Then her snout went to work on Every. Single. piece of ground. I should have known a hound dog would make for a sucky running partner. At least I only ruined a small run. Regardless, we had some nice bonding time.
Friday was fantastic – I ran straight through with about a 10 minute/mile average. My friend’s knee started giving her troubles around mile 4, so unfortunately I continued on while she walked for a while. But she made it. We got lucky again with some more gorgeous winter weather on Friday, so the chill didn’t bother me too much. My toes were only a tiny bit numb.
Today was bitter…and for some reason I thought just a hat, gloves, compression top and a tank top over it would be okay. Thankfully, once the sweat started dripping it proved to be alright. I passed a few doggies on my run, some kids playing, a man fishing, and lots of geese. I have some of what I’m praying is dirt on the side of one of my Nike’s…..I left them outside for inspection tomorrow.
Here’s hoping everyone had a fabulous run today. Stay warm!
