So this morning like every morning I leashed up the dog and headed out for a run. Instantly we were hit with a wall of heat and humidity - wow it's like 6AM and already in the lower 80's. Clearly the outdoor AC isn't working right.
I thought about just walking but when we got to the stop sign where we start running, Bodie started running so I figured I'd see how it went.
Not too good. He needed a pit stop about a half mile into the run and stopping means all the heat catches up. I decided to walk for a bit but once I'm out there I'd rather keep running.
then the dog threw up
I think that was the point when I pulled the plug on running and just decided that it would be best to walk home.
end result - a whopping 2.7 miles in 42 minutes
not exactly a land speed record
In other news can I just say that I really REALLY hate those extended leashes - in particular ones that are say attached to a large German Shepard that is barking and acting like he wants to eat us while his owner is talking on a cell phone and making a lame attempt to rein him in?
Meanwhile I'm trying to train my guy to stay in a tight heel and pulling this pack leader all is ok I am in charge nothing is happening, no reason to try to protect mom bit that my dog trainer swears is the thing to do here.
Do I get activity points for an adrenaline rush?
