This morning Bayah and I went for a little run outside.
Adam is still recovering from his LASIK eye surgery and is very sensitive to light and therefore couldn’t get out to play with our dog. Bayah was dying to get outside and I didn’t want to stand around in the cold throwing her bird so I decided to take her for a run.
I normally hate running outside in the winter, especially when there is a lot of snow and ice on the ground. But I thought I could kill two birds with one stone- Get in a good workout and tire out the dog.
The sun was shinning and there was very little wind. I put on all my winter gear and laced up the asics and we were on our way.
There were a lot of slippery spots. You can totally tell from my running chart below where I slowed down to either walk across the ice or wait for traffic.
I mostly tried to run in the road and Bayah ran on the sidewalks which I was happy about because then I didn’t have to worry about the cars. Since I don’t run her with a leash she sometimes gets out a little far. But for the most part she does a great job listening and staying close.
6.3 miles later we were back home and Bayah was nice and tuckered out!
Not only was today a pretty good run outside but I recorded by 300th run on my Nike+ Watch. I hadn’t been keep track of my runs until I uploaded my watch from today. 300!!!! Just think, if I would have worn my watch every time. I never wear my watch on the treadmill. I bet there are another 300 runs on there. With a total of 300 runs and 1,870 miles that’s a lot of sweating.
And to think I hated running in High School. Never doubt yourself!
