Today was my favorite kind of weather to run in.

Low 60’s, light rain.

So it was a perfect morning for a run!

I was sore from yesterday’s two speed work sessions, my legs were toast, no pain, just sore and tired.

So today was going to be a recovery run(s) somewhere between 2-5 miles total.

He really wasn’t in to running all that much faster today either. Continue reading “Bennie Had His Own Plans – RunLog 8-13-14”

Tuesday Equals SpeedWork – RunLog 8-12-14

Yesterday was speedwork Tuesday, which means that I do a quick/hard 2+ with Bennie and then head to a local track and do some interval work.

Bennie Run

We started out quick and went faster. The Bean was ready and raring to go. When he sees me pulling on those Blue and Yellow shoes, he gets all excited. He is learning when I wear those on a run, we are going to run fast.

He LOVES TO RUN FAST.

After that part was over he had his tongue dragging, but had a big doggie grin and I was laughing too,  after I remembered how to breathe again – been a long time since I ran that fast 🙂 .
