There were no beginners last night. But there were plenty of huskies that needed running, so the run leader took one along with his Labrador; one of the husky owner's friends took three! He is insane (and also a very fast runner). And the husky owner himself took two. My friend D had his pointer and his golden doodle, and another friend had her two staffies, both strong pullers! Taylor Beagle and I being a bit outclassed, D took pity on me and lent me his doodle, who pulls as long as he is in front of her.
What can I say? It is definitely the fastest I have run up hill, ever 😃
We had a nice trundle along the undulations at the top, and all was hunky dory. The problem came when we entered the downhill. I'm not used to actually being pulled downhill at any speed, the mechanics of it are really different, and part way down my right calf went 'twang'.
Luckily we were then just under a kilometre away from the end, so I gave D his doodle back and opted to walk the last little bit with a couple of the others.
I've attacked it with the foam roller, both last night and again this morning, but it's definitely niggling enough to warrant a couple of days rest before I try running again. Hopefully that is all it will need though.
