A Simple Running Log

Training for 10/14/15

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 2:48 pm

Today’s run went much better than yesterday’s non-run. For once, Pepper and I left the house the same time Clark left to go to work, instead of putting it off forever. The weather was perfect and the wind hadn’t picked up at all.

We ran the 10.5-mile loop, and it was one of the smoothest runs I’ve had in a while. I mean, yeah, there was the bathroom stop in the woods I had to make at about mile 3.5, but other than that, it just flew by. Pepper didn’t even seem bored near the end either. Instead of trying to lie down on the side of the road to chew on his stick, he ran the whole way without complaint.

It always amazes me how Pepper seems to be so much more concerned about totally inanimate objects on the side of the road, like trash cans, than he seems to be about oncoming traffic, something that could actually hurt him. Today, we were running by a tractor, parked and motionless, and Pepper almost ran into the path of an oncoming pickup truck in his effort to get away from the tractor that wasn’t moving.
