Running Log Week 7

Finding the time to run during Week 7 training plan has not been easy. I was supposed to run four times this past week but in reality only ran 3, coincidentally ran on all three specified non-running days.  Last week was an atrocious work week, worked way to much. Worked just over 60 hours which was not conducive to running.  Oh well, there is always week 8 to be spot on again like week 6.  At least I was able to add in two bike rides, dog hikes, and several Meme training sessions. I am happy to report Meme is doing better with on leash walking and dealing with the vacuum cleaner 🙂

  • Tuesday 2 miles – Actually ran 3 miles on Monday at Nevers Park in South Windsor with friends.  Good run.  It is way nicer to run with other people than by myself.  My friends who are real runners are much faster than me.  I guess that is a good thing, I need to get out my comfort zone.
  • Wednesday 3 miles – I didn’t run.  I had to go into work too early to run before work and went for a bike ride after work.  I was delusional to think I would run after my ride.
  • Thursday 2 miles – I didn’t run. I hiked the pups instead.  I though about trail running with the dogs but Kodi doesn’t like to run anymore.  He lolly gaggles behind, well deserved lolly gaggling since he has arthritis in his hips.
  • Friday rest day – Ran my 3 mile standard loop
  • Saturday 3 miles – I didn’t run as I wanted to mountain bike with Darrell instead.  Once again I thought I would run later in the day, but the day got away from me after hiking the pups.  Fantastic ride though, wicked nice to ride again with Darrell, especially at Blackledge Falls.
  • Sunday long walk – Ran about 3 miles at Nevers Park with friends.

Total mileage for the week 9 versus the plan on 11.

    It’s me again, Tammy the Marketing Coordinator at The Uncommon Dog. We just finished another informative info-graphic that I thought you might be interested in. It’s titled “How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!”.

    If you love dogs, like we do, then you’ll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

    If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: Again, all we ask in return is that you link back to, in some way, from your post.

    Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we’d be happy to spread the word again about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.
