Having graduated C25K in late summer I’ve been trotting along with consolidation runs, only managing 2 runs a week at best but varying my routes and getting out in the dark and the rain now the evenings have drawn in.
Thought that perhaps winter wasn’t going to be possible for me to increase my distances...
That is until Last week when I discovered a secret weapon in my gorgeous Labrador dog, first time I’ve run with him, we started up the hill and I immediately had concerns we were not going to make it back before dark, he set his pace and I couldn’t exactly drag him (he weighs over 30kg!) so I resigned myself to a slow run.... well turns out my 4 legged companion knew best and we nailed my longest run yet in a respectable pace.
Now, just need to teach him how to pull me up these Cornish hills!
Did my first 6k today with puppio in tow!
Maybe 10k is doable over winter...?
