A Simple Running Log

Training for 8/30/16

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 9:18 am

This morning, I took Pepper out for this week’s middle distance run, which increased to 8 miles.

The fun started within the first half-mile. An irrigation system was spraying out into the road. Pepper tried to turn around and run back to the house at least five times as we approached it. Of course, he was wearing a harness with a leash attached to it, and he’s a shrimp, so he wasn’t getting his way. It took a while, but I dragged him through it.

There was a lot of traffic out this morning, even on parts of the route where I never see a vehicle. As we ran down one particular road, I was thinking how I could count on one hand the number of vehicles I’ve seen on it in seven years. Naturally, we got passed a minute later by a school bus, and then we came around a bend to see a Ford C-MAX parked on the side of the road, the driver standing outside of it, fixing her hair (??) like that was a normal thing people do.

Anyway, we made it home, finishing off the 8.4-mile loop. Turns out today is the first day of school around here, which explains all the school buses. But not that lady doing her hair in the middle of nowhere!
