Trying to get the good old boy out at least once a week and today was his day. Irish will be 12 this summer, so we have to provide some modifications for his running. For example, on hot days we always run along a creek so he can cool off and get multiple drinks on the run. haha! Nature’s water station. Tonight I parked in the middle of the route I wanted to do. This way he would have water access at all times 🙂 We did a mile one direction from the car and back (almost all along the creek), and then a mile the other direction and back.. . with a few stops for a short minute rest along the way. He always goes out too fast for the first 1.5 miles and then ends up lagging behind the rest of the way! It was a hot day for us (about 85 degrees) so we were both glad to run easy.
First double-digit midweek long run tomorrow! I think Irish will need a recovery day;)
