It's been rather lonely on the trails this week. Sadie's healing okay, it seems. Earlier in the week she wasn't putting any weight on her paw and was bouncing around the house on three legs. I'd put my running shoes on and she'd run to the front door on three legs, tail and tongue wagging, acting like she was just fine. We've been playing catch with the ball today in the house and she does look like she's doing much better. I'll give her a few more days off before we test it on a run.
This week's a cutback week. I feel very strong. Like bull. I'm reexamining my possible participation in the Lake Youngs Ultra next month. I originally dropped it from my schedule so I wouldn't push my knee too hard in my return. I'm putting in good miles but I'm being a lot smarter about it than last summer. Anyway, the Lake Youngs Ultra is a 29 mile dog-friendly event and would be a good build-up run for my July races. The negative is that it's a long drive. I'll see what Sadie thinks when we get closer.
The weather is beautiful in the Inland Northwest. It's going to be a great spring/summer.
This week in photos:
Isn't it great to be a runner?
Those pictures are great! It's so beautiful there. I'm glad Sadie seems to be feeling better.ReplyDelete
I know I don't need a 29 mile ramp up to my racing schedule, but that's just me :D hee heeReplyDelete
Hope Sadie comes around. My doggie is nursing a gash also.
Have a good weekend, Scott.
Glad to hear Sadie is doing better. I've been debating LY vs. another local 12k. I'm leaning toward the 12k right now. Even if I did LY, I'd only go one loop. And, yes, it is a long drive, but, who cares?ReplyDelete
ROFLMAO! Leave it to you to make me laugh! "I feel very strong. Like bull." what movie is that from? I know it, but I can't think . . .ReplyDelete
Oohh those pictures are gorgeous!! I hope Sadie is 100% soon!ReplyDelete
Really nice photos! How many miles per week are you at?ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that Sadie is recovering alright! Great pics.ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful photos. It must be wonderful to be able to go out and enjoy country like that every day.ReplyDelete
I'm very glad to hear Sadie is getting better.
Oh MAN! I want to move up there and be your next door neighbor!! I can't believe how gorgeous those pics are...looks cool too...as in temperature cool, not neato cool... but it looks neato cool too!ReplyDelete
My brother checked the weather and today in Houston we were hotter than Death Valley...now there's something to brag about! hahahaha
Rock on bull! Weather looks perfect there in the NW. Good to be a runner is right on.ReplyDelete
As always I love the pictures. Glad to hear Sadie is starting to get better. Hopefully she'll be back out there soon!ReplyDelete
Wow! It's really green there! The eastern part of ND (where I am) is pretty green as well as we have had a lot of moisture this past winter and spring... The west is a bit dryer and a concern for farmers... like you really care. but It is really beautiful out there and it's hard NOT to get out there and enjoy it!ReplyDelete
How beautifully green. We already had a couple of 100+ days so the spring green has already turned to summer brown.ReplyDelete
I hope Sadie heals up well.
