Running with the pup

Sunday, January 13, 2013

It seems like every time we go out for walks lately my dog gets the desperate urge to sprint.  This is probably something that requires some training but today I decided that I'd let him run a bit.  I dug to the depths of my drawer to find some running clothes and put my sneakers back on for the first time in months.

I was actually pleasantly surprised with our little jog.  We kept it short and went slowly.  He was pretty much walking at a faster pace than normal, but I wanted to ease our way into actually running.  It may have been months since I've run, but my two a day walks with the dog seemed to have stopped me from becoming a complete blob.  The dog kept wanting to stop and smell things so I had to keep him close, but overall he did great.

We still have to work on the constant need to stop and smell thing and his debilitating fear of sewer drains but I see a good running buddy in my pup.
