A Simple Running Log

Training for 5/6/15

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 1:44 pm

Today, I made myself go upstairs and do some proper strength training for once — push-ups, ab exercises, invisible chair-sitting and weights. Running feels so much smoother when I get in strength training a couple times a week, yet I seem to have so much trouble now making myself stick to it.

Then I took Pepper out for a run. It’s warm today and it was a little later in the morning than I’d intended when we left the house, but I didn’t think it was too bad yet. Pepper had a different opinion though. He was completely miserable the first couple of miles, which were in full sunlight. He seemed to perk up when we made a turn about two miles in and we were in some shade, and as we made more turns toward home, he kept getting faster, as usual. He seemed like he was feeling OK when we finished the 4.5-mile loop.

But when we got home, he just could not seem to get comfortable. The poor guy was panting his head off, and just looked awful. It’s not even close to summer yet and it seems like the window of acceptable running weather is already closing!
