Little Things #41: My favorite jogging buddy

My favorite jogging buddySo, I’ve been taking it easy and avoiding any strenuous activity. Why? Well, because of my knee. I had a knee injury that took about 6 months to heal, and I have been apprehensive to start back up again for fear of injuring myself again. I mean, you don’t really know if your body is ready until you just do it. But I’ve been a little scared.

Welp, I adopted a puppy. And he doesn’t exactly like to just meander around. Running is more his thing, and I decided to just jump right in! Well, with jogging. Actually, a walk/run/walk/run type of thing. So I’ve been taking it slow, and it’s going really well. I can’t wait to take on longer runs with this guy, it’s a lot of fun hitting the trails by my new home. We can’t actually do longer runs until he gets older, since he’s still developing and longer runs can put him at risk for developing hip displasyia. Well, good thing my run is pretty much his walking fast speed. So I think I’m good. 🙂

But I am not looking forward to running in the rain. Neither is the puppy. That’s what we have on the horizon since we are moving into an autumn in Portland. Lots of rain dumping on us. But we’re going to do it anyway. And he’s getting a raincoat (sorry, Everett!). Dogs in raincoats are pretty much the cutest overload thing there is. Everett definitely doesn’t agree.

    My dog is by far my best running partner. Her and I have logged a LOT of miles together. Running with two dogs….that is a whole other kind of workout.

      Oh my word, I don’t even know what running with 2 dogs would be like! I love that your dog(s?) are your favorite running partners too. They are the best!

      haha Jen, I haven’t been taking nearly as many photos as I should of my new addition. But that will definitely have to change with the raincoat. 🙂
