- Just Running for Fun
Dogs Love to Chase Me
- I can't believe it has been a month since my last post. While I am still reading all your blogs and keeping up with all your greatness on facebook, I have certainly lacked with the comments. There have been so many great races, well done everyone!!
I have been keeping my word and working on some strength training. The first night I was up and squatting and lunging, I realized just how weak I was! Even with all the running and biking and swimming, I still have ways to go. I have been really focusing on isolating each leg and working them as well as mixing in some upper body exercises. It feels nice to toss something new in the mix.
Running has been going really well and I am really enjoying being outside moving. There is just something so peaceful and fulfilling about running. Anyway, I had a most beautiful ride on Sunday. The weather was perfect, the legs felt good, the mind was in it. I did get chased by a dog…...again. This seems to be a recurring theme. I am pretty use to it now and I can stay totally relaxed and calm and have no fear of swerving into a car when I hear the barking and dashing. I do get upset at the owners. Care for your animal and keep them safe. These dogs can get hit by a car or even worse cause a horrible accident. Be responsible people. OK rant over.
Switching gears here. As the cooler temps set in for the long haul many of us runners will be heading indoors to get in some, if not all runs. There is a nice website called Treadmill Reviews that has some great treadmill workouts and exercises as well as informative treadmill reviews. Check it out.
Hope everyone has a great week! Happy running.
