Who Let The Dogs Out?
I had a very busy weekend, was out of town on Saturday and so I didn't get my long run in. I only got 4 miles in. Very disappointing. So I decide to try to creep it in this morning. I'm actually on a taper week but was really shooting for 16 miles. 2 miles into my run I see a dog with no collar that decides I should be it's new owner. This is one of those car chasing kind of dogs. It almost got hit 10 times and the drivers gave me the dirty looks. I tried to shake him a few times but he found me and enjoyed running through my legs. Not so much fun for me. Threw off my whole run. I finally shook him when I went past a parking lot with lots of people. But the damage had been done. I only got 13 miles in today. I hate runs like that. I'm feeling a bit defeated. Lost my game-face... Hopefully my workouts will better throughout the week. I'll melt away my sorrows as I sit by the pool with my kids this afternoon. How do you get over a bad run?
