My quest to make James into a super running pup continues.
Because heâ€™s little, I know James will never be able to go miles and miles. But James is a dog with lots of energy and long legs, and I know he can safely work up to 2 or 3 slow miles.
I learned to run using this method and figure it will work for James, too! Weâ€™ve been doing long strolls of 1.5 to 2.0 miles, and today we graduated to the Galloway Method, which is walk/run intervals. We ran for one minute at 11:30 pace, and then we walked for two minutes. I tried to keep him in the grass as much as possible so his feet didnâ€™t hurt. It took us 20 minutes to do 1.2 miles. He got really tired towards the end, but I could tell he was having fun. Go James, go!
Iâ€™m going to try to walk/run him for a mile or so every day for a few weeks and see what happens! If it worked for me, I bet it will work for James!
Before my run, I snacked on some pita chips:
And dinner was a roasted veggie feast:
I had a serving of Kashi Pilaf:
And a bunch of mushrooms.
The mushrooms were marinated in this yummy balsamic sauce and then roasted for 15 minutes.
And a pile of roasted carrot and parsnip fries. I could eat these at EVERY meal. I coat them in olive oil and roast at 420 for about 20 minutes.
Off to bed! 🙂
