running vs biking

Friday, May 10, 2013

Tommorrow is the Iron Mom in Paducah. I ran the 13 miles the 1st year and last year I did half of it in a relay with my daughter. This will be the third year and I'm not doing it- boo hoo. It just doesn't fit into my schedule and I'm not in shape enough either. I need to find a good 5k and spend a little time getting ready for it. I've been biking which I really love but I'm less in shape for running/walking now. I use my bike to run errands and just for exercise. Lately I've had a dog threatening me on my bike on a road I frequently ride on. I see so many dog bites at work that it makes me wary. Yesterday I shot him in the face with a watergun full of vinegar. I think I may switch to ammonia because the vinegar didn't seem to faze him too much. And it takes some coordination to ride your bike and also shoot at a dog and keep your legs out of his range. That was a workout. I guess I 'm lucky I haven't run into this before. I've rode and walked for years without any problems.

    Be careful! Sorry you have to deal with a scary dog after you, hope the ammonia works.

    I hate to come upon a loose dog. Stupid owners! I never thought about vinegar or ammonia. Good idea.

    As for "Iron Mom" (cool name), time to start training for next year. Go for it!
