Furry Running Buddy & My Favorite Post Run Snack

I started off my run today with this old pup, my best running buddy ever.  Irish is good for 1.5 miles lately, so that’s what we did together.  Then I ran more on my own.  There was a time when he could do 7 miles but he’s eleven now and slowing down. Whenever I get my running shoes on he knows what’s up!   By the end of our run, he’s lagging behind and I have to coax him along…but he loves every minute.  When we run by the farm that has two dogs he speeds up though.  Wouldn’t want to look like a wimp in front of your own kind!img_1760

After dropping the dog off I ran my favorite loop until I had 8.1 miles.  My legs are still sore from some kettle bell/squat exercise I did on Monday, but this run felt good.  Effortless even.  That’s always a great feeling!

The Altra Intuition 3.5’s are my favorite road shoe.  Wide toe box, zero drop platform, and just enough cushion for a smooth ride but still allowing me to feel the road beneath my feet.

After my run and stretching it was time for my favorite snack.  I highly recommend this combo.  Lots of good protein and many healthy benefits from the flax seed.  I keep these four ingredients on hand all the time.  It’s also often my morning snack at work, and sometimes even my breakfast!
