Cue: Long, sad puppy sighs; restless legs; and looking forlornly out the window.
Time to take James out on a run!
As mentioned, I’m trying to use the Galloway Method to train James into a running pup. We go for long walks two or three times a week, and we do walk/run intervals to increase his endurance for long runs.
Tonight we did 1.5 miles in 20 minutes. James actually broke into a sprint a few times (I clocked him at 7:30/miles!!) and wore himself out early, so a lot of the last 0.5 mile was just straight strolling. Rookie mistake, James!
Before our run, I had yogurt, honey, cinnamon, and Grape Nuts.
Which was a-maz-ing.
And dinner featured one of my favorite recipes!
I made a serving of Bean and Olive Dip (recipe on this page) but I mixed it up a little bit by adding garlic, black beans, and jalapeños. It was spicy!
With 1.5 servings of crackers.
And a big glass of red wine!
I enjoyed reading all the comments On Careers. We all obviously travel different paths, but I think the upshot of everyone’s comments is:
- Do what you love
- Be smart, resourceful, and logical in your decisions
- Get experience and network
- Be flexible and willing to pursue new opportunities
Sounds like a good plan to me! 🙂
Off to bed. I need to get my sleep on tonight and tomorrow because I’m doing TWO races this weekend – an 8K on Saturday and a Metric Century bike race on Sunday. It’s going to be epic, obviously.
