Three Things Thursday

1- Had a really good 5 mile easy run on Tuesday. Felt terrific. Then on Wednesday, I started to get body aches and chills, like I'm getting the flu or something. Today I'm feeling better, but not good, so I'm skipping my run in favor of rest. I hope to be able to run easy again tomorrow, or at least do my long run on Saturday. Otherwise, I may choose not to do the 11K next weekend and opt for a local 5K instead.

2 - There happens to be a local run on Sunday for the Humane Society. A few years ago I signed up to run with Bandit. We arrived at the venue on time, but never made it to the start line. It was simply a madhouse with all the various dogs going crazy. We ended up turning around, getting back in the car, and going home. I've thought (briefly) about signing up at the last minute if I feel better, but doing the 'humans only' race. There's no way I would try to bring either of my dogs to that after my past experience, though.

3 - This is a photo from the dirt levee road portion of the 10K last weekend, just to give some idea what I was talking about when describing the race. I found this particular surface to be relatively easy to run on (the single track, however, was another story all together). This part was nice and wide and not many obstacles, very similar to the acequia that I run on near my house. See the bright lime green shirt in the upper right back by the cones? That's me.

  3. Be patient with the single track. You will learn to love it as much as I do. ;)

  4. I'm sure the rest will cure you quickly. Technical single track trail is great but you have to train for it. Take care and have a great weekend.

  5. Too bad that humaine society run wasn't better organized. That could have been fun!

    Hope you feel better.

  7. there is a wiggle, waggle, walk here for the Ottawa Humane Society, but only a walk...the dogs get to jazzed up with everyone running. Their "bib" is a doggie scarf which their owner's tie around their necks...too cute.

    Hope you are feeling better!
