Ms. M texted me at 4:30 a.m. It was a succinct text: "Let's go at 5:30."
What can I say to that but an equally succinct text: "Sure!"
It was beautiful out today - about 28ish to 30ish degrees F. The wind wasn't blowing too strongly either. Apparently I am the "runner of the week" because of my race this weekend, so I get to decide where we are running and how far we are running. We settled on a specific 3-ish mile route, which was my least favorite route because when we get so close to the finish spot, we had to make another little loop around. Talk about temptation! Anyway, we haven't ran my "more favorite" 5K route because the last time Ms. M and Mr. R ran that route, they encountered a pit bull - a mean pit bull that actually was all ready to pounce and attack.
The run was all right. It wasn't hard, but it was easy peasy either. I mentally checked out when we ran by the finish spot (before the add-on loop). I had the chance to call it a day or to stick with it and finish the 3 miles. I told the running group that we are going to do the add-on loop. Taper week has made me feel a little less than adequate. So, finishing this extra loop kinda help give me a little confidence boost. We finished the run in about 41 minutes ish.
Paddy went and got her second set of shots. She did well and she weighs 25 lbs now.
The vet said it would be OK to start her on some short easy runs when she is about 6 months old.
Oh I can't wait! Do you have any tips?
Here, I'm leaving you with a picture of her at 13 weeks old, 25 lbs, in my vehicle after the vet visit.
