My quest to make James into a super running pup continues.
Because he’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! We’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 didn’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!
I’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! 🙂
