Fast forward to mid-afternoon and I finally made it out on a run. The first 1.7 miles were with Maddie. She was so happy to see me grab her leash! The girl is getting better at running. Granted, she had pit stops at .25 and .5 miles, but all things considered she did wonderful on today's run. Maddie didn't appear to get tired until we hit ~1.5 mi. This is the usual aftermath of a run with me:
|Maddie goes in her crate to get away from the kids and to sleep in peace!|
I finished today with 7.66 miles at an average of 9:48/mi. I usually don't run in the middle of the afternoon, so I'm happy with the results. Maybe next weekend I'll be able to fit in a few more miles! I did enjoy a bell pepper and hummus as a post run snack (thank goodness for Sam's Club...I bought the pepper and hummus this morning)!
