A Simple Running Log

Training for 7/22/15

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 3:40 pm

A cool front came through yesterday, and today was much nicer for running — so nice in fact, I took Pepper with me to the cross country trail.

The parking lot was empty when we got there, but a pickup pulled in right behind us, and out of the bed bounded two huge dogs. Unleashed, of course. Their owner asked if Pepper was friendly. In hindsight, I should have said he will shred any dog who comes near him to ribbons, which is why I keep him on a leash. Because when I said he was fine, the guy let his two dogs run over and pretty much climb all over Pepper, who might be friendly, but he sure as hell doesn’t want to be friends. The look on his face clearly said GET ME OUT OF HERE.

When we finally got those two behind us, we started down the trail. The one thing I hate about the woods this time of year is all the spider webs. I found a stick to wave around in front of my face (yes, it looks ridiculous, but I don’t care — I don’t want a mouthful of spider web.) Of course, Pepper wanted the stick. So I gave him that one, and picked up another. Which Pepper wanted. Gah.

Eventually we got that straightened out and we finished the 3-mile loop, both of us carrying a stick. When we got back home, I went upstairs and did some strength training with the weights.
