5 miles through town

Thursday I started my run around 5:50, which is pretty late, even for me! I decided to run around the headlands since it wasn't windy out. I haven't run around town in view of the ocean in quite a long while. It was grey and cloudy, but pretty much perfect other than that.

The pup and I had a pretty scary and angering encounter with a dumb german shepard only 3 minutes into the run. I was livid with the owner, who was letting his dog run off-leash in the middle of town, and had zero verbal control over his dog who obviously had it in for my pup. I was furious, and have a huge walnut-sized lump on my shin as a result of the encounter.

I would seriously like to get to the pool sometime in the next week. I haven't been able to get in any strength training this week, or yoga, but two great runs!

  1. Yeah, i really hate when owners don't control their dogs. It's like "HELLO, i'm running/walking/whatevering here." At least you got a run in. I've been trying better this week to fit in strength training between my runs. It's not easy, but I know it will make my running stronger so i'm trying to make it more of a priority.
