Ran 5 miles, 9:28 pace- not great, but I’ve definitely done worse. I ran part of the way home after work. It was 86ish degrees but at least there was a breeze.
I also did a wall-sit and little strength training
I forgot to mention yesterday, Happy International Left-Handers Day to all you lefties out there (*cough Mom *cough)!
We celebrate the weirdest things, but who cares if it makes people happy 🙂 Wait, when is International Dessert Day? Anyone?
Do you ever run with your dog(s)? I do occasionally, but it’s not my favorite thing to do. And this is weird because I LOVE my pets. I am the crazy lady who talks to them and explains what we’re doing. I WISH I loved running with my dog.
My 2 reasons why I don’t run with my pup:
- Running with a dog makes you look like sluggishly slow. Or at least my dog. I’m JK, this isn’t really one of my reasons. But she does make me look like I am walking. Her thoughts: you run at a 9:28 pace, you basically are walking. don’t blame it on the dog, we get enough sh*t blamed on us. those holes you think we dug in the yard- those tree climbing, nut storing, tiny bastards…probably.
- My dog doesn’t drink from public water sources. Along the trail, there are certain water fountains that have dog water bowls- my dog does not trust these. She refuses to drink from any public sources of water. snob. This is a good thing, but also dangerous if I take her on a run.
- It takes her about 1.5 miles to behave properly on a leash (only when running). She will constantly pull, or stop right in front of you, or turn around to look at you and run into you, or poop 15 feet after we leave my yard. If I take her on a run, it will only be a 3 miler because of reason #2 (I worry about her overheating). If half of my run involves tripping over my dog, sometimes it’s just not worth it. I’d rather just take her for a walk.
Do you prefer to run with someone (human, dog, ferret, etc.) or solo?
BTW I’m actually excited for my 5:30 AM run tomorrow. Boy Meets World, don’t mind if I do.
