Day 13 Reach4Raw marathon training, rest day

August 12th, 2016 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We did the Wooftrax Walk for a Dog app today. I can’t seem to get it to work when the Couch to 5K is running, must be operator error (or my new downgraded phone and service, I’m not sure). Oreo had fun, stopping and sniffing along the greenway. Our mayor just announced a huge upgrade […]

Day 12 Reach4Raw marathon training

August 11th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Today was the first day I didn’t really want to train but I did it anyway. And look at that happy face after it was over. It was warm, I think about 80 degrees.  Oreo got to ride after the 5-minute warm-up, too hot for my furry girl. And here are the lying stats. I […]

Day 11 Reach4Raw training, rest day

August 10th, 2016 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We walked for about six minutes before Oreo laid down in the grass. Too hot, Mama! The only thing that got her going again were two squirrels racing up and down around a tree. She was on her 30′ leash, working on our recall. It worked about twice, then she got to five feet away […]

Day 10 Reach4Raw marathon training, “Hot enough fo’ ya?”

August 9th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Quite hot, but I used some tip money from a DogVacay client and bought an a-DORABLE skort and sports bra and yes, I JOGGED IN IT! That’s the new rule, over 50, you can wear whatever the heck you want. Those shirtless guys are just lucky I wasn’t THAT hot… 😉 Video link at the […]

Day 7 Reach4Raw marathon training – Rest Day

August 6th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

So I woke up with a headache, and I have a guest dog here through DogVacay, and I have a lot of editing to do today, and blah blah blah. I did a free run to the park and back, essentially walked a 22-minute mile. I’m a bit concerned that my new phone didn’t track […]

Day 6 Reach4Raw marathon training

August 6th, 2016 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today was the easiest day so far. I thought my phone malfunctioned because the training was over so quickly. Turns out the app worked fine, but my phone did actually die a couple of hours later. Hopefully I can figure out my new phone before tomorrow’s training. Here are the last two pictures I got […]

Day 5 of Reach4Raw marathon training, back at it

August 5th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

This is getting easier! Well, getting out of the house is anyway. I’m using the ramp for Oreo to get in and out of the SUV too, we’re both too tired to either lift her or for her to jump in. Tonight I’ve got my smoothie ingredients in the Vitamix in the fridge ready to […]

Day 4 of Reach4Raw marathon training, rest day

August 4th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

We had a rest day today so just walked at Oreo’s pace. When she got hot she got a buggy ride for most of the rest of the way. When *I* got hot she had to get out and walk on her own uphill, ha ha. We saw some people with New England Patriots gear […]

Day 3 Reach4Raw marathon training

August 2nd, 2016 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I finally figured out what’s wrong with my DoggyRide and its wobbly wheel and as always, it’s operator error. I’ve actually started going too fast to use the front wheel on its stroller mode and have to lock it into place for jogger mode. My triceps get a workout pushing down on the handlebar to […]

Day 2 of Reach4Raw marathon training

August 1st, 2016 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

It was rather a hot one today. Oreo only made it about .25 miles before climbing aboard her DoggyRide, which STILL has a wobbly front wheel. [Update: of course it was me, I didn’t have it locked in jogger mode!]  I don’t know why I thought not using it for a year would change that. […]
