I hate when my posts get eaten: I never want to write them again, but here goes.
I'm currently Working through a different C25K, but ran this to show support for some fellow Beyonders 🙂
I joined my fellow canicrossers at a local beach for a run last night followed by pizza at a beachfront café. We’d already agreed that if it was too hot we’d just do a social walk instead. As it was, we didn’t need to worry, as you tell from the pics!
Merlin was very excited to meet up with a lot of other doggies, but not too happy when we let them run off without us, while we did our 5 minute warm up walk.
I’ve tried running on sand before, and my knees have not liked it, so I was really planning on taking things easy. I was wearing my trail shoes - as I’ve been told this helps - and the sand was wet and soft beneath us, which I was hoping would also help. I had a bit of a twinge on the second interval, but that was the only one I had, so I think I’ll try a few more interval sessions over the summer and see if I can build on that.
I’m so proud of Merlin, he ran past other dogs (including the main Canicross group as they stopped for a break) without wanting to stop and play, which is a difficult ask as he’s only young. The only thing that did spook him, was the board with the boots on it, which did look a bit creepy in the fog!
Collage do-hickey won’t let me put the pics in the correct order 🧐
