So, 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.
