Wednesday: 5 miles on the treadmill. I love AC.
Friday: 45 minute on the trail. This run was hard. Usually when I hit the 45 minute point my training plan calls for I end up just going a couple more minutes until I make it 5 miles. Not this time. I couldn't wait to be done.
|The pups ran around a lot on Friday, too! |
We were all very sleepy at the end of the night!
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: Running Streak Mile.
Total Weekly Miles: 12.6
Total Training Plan Miles: 63.85
I took Saturday and Sunday completely off. I was feeling a little achey and it was wonderful having a couple of days off. I had a 6 miler on the calendar, but moved it to Monday (and checked it off yesterday!).

This week has been a fun one despite the less than stellar runs. I had my sweet foster girl for the majority of the week, and I loved every crazy minute of having her. Guys, she is the funniest dog I've ever met. Before I took her to the adoption event she started her crazy run and hide the toys game. I found 12 toys in my bed when I finally got her to calm down a little. She really loved the huge zebra toy Maddux got for Christmas!
I got emotional as I said goodbye to her when she headed back to the boarding facility. I know that she had to go back because of my travel schedule the next few weeks, but I hated saying goodbye knowing that she hadn't found a family yet. Keep your fingers crossed for my girl! She's shy when you first meet her, but it doesn't last long. She is going to make a family very lucky! To find out more about Cream visit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue's website. Cream has asked me to tell her future family that she really loves toys and would like a huge basket like her foster brother Maddux!
How did your week in training go? Have you ever fostered? Does it ever get easier to say goodbye?! I think any dog I have over 24 hours is going to make me cry when I say goodbye!
