Reuniting Run

Well.

Long time, no see.

That’s right. Nick and I went running today for the first time in over 5 months. I guess the good (and bad) thing about having a blog is I can look up exactly when we went last.

The weather was just beautiful today and we wanted to get Maggie outside for a while after work, so we gave it a whirl.

Nick had Maggie on her lead while we ran, and she did okay! We went about 2 miles running and another half mile walking back to the house.

And me? Well…I can definitely tell I haven’t run in 5 months :\ 

BUT – I’m so glad we went. Maggie needed 2 walking breaks during our run and I only needed one ;)  I ended up having a pretty bad side stitch about halfway through, but that’s also pretty normal for me.

Now that the weather is better and we’ll be running more often, I definitely need some better fuel!

I had some veggies + hummus at work this afternoon – good snack, but I think I need something more filling if we’re going to be running after work. My lunch also wasn’t big enough – I was pretty hungry today and didn’t have much else for a snack.

After we got back, stretched, and showered, Nick and I heated up some pasta leftovers for dinner.

Leftover pasta is the best! I think it tasted even better tonight – this recipe was definitely a success!

I think Maggie’s ready for LOST…

Nite!

  9. Great job on the run! I’m so impressed Maggie can keep up with you guys, too. I also went today for the first time in a while… OOF.

  10. Congrats on the run! I’m working on building up my running stamina, but I’ve been out of it a week and feel like its been 5 months. I’m dreading the treadmill tonight because I know it’s going to be hard!

    You should talk to your vet about running Maggie, though. I wanted to run my friend’s dog (back when I was in a little better shape last summer) but her vet warned them not to run them full out when they are under a year old because it could affect their growth patterns. That could have been just for her breed, though (pit bull mix).

  11. Yay for running! I love running with Andy. It’s starting to be fun.

    But I hear you on better running fuel. I need to work on that too.
