Middle of June Already?!

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Summer is way too short! With our cold start to summer and school getting out so late, it is just now starting to feel like summer. I tell ya what, I'm taking a day or two off as soon as I get this class done. I feel like I need to kick back and enjoy the great outdoors.

Last night I went for a long, fast walk and found a little stray dog along the way. I stopped and tried to find the owner, and contemplated keeping the little dog myself -- he was a little sweetie! Eventually the owner drove up -- she was frantically searching for him. He didn't have a collar or tags. The topic of getting a second dog keeps coming up around here. Maybe.....

Today is a stretch and strengthen day for me, according to the half marathon training plan I'm following. On my last S&S day, I didn't do a whole lot -- maybe 20 minutes. So I'm thinking I need to come up with something a little more rigorous.

Happy Tuesday!

    I just read an article about strength training for runners. Here's the link.

    As for stretching, I've become a total foam roller fanatic. If you haven't tried it, it works wonders on the IT band.

    Always nice to take time to smell he roses, you deserve time to kick back.

    Glad you tried to help the little dog, you are a sweetie, nice the owner came along. I am forever taking dogs home always happy when they have tags.
