This morning I ran my usual route but ended up being told I have no business running where the dog walkers are. The problem is one guy who has a really large dog - its head is as tall as my elbow and it scares me. He has told me more than once (today: I've told YOU before!!!) to stand still with my arms folded across my chest and it will walk away - it only wants to play. (silly me for not knowing that!)
It was there again this morning so I asked him to keep his dog back when it ran towards me but it just started jumping up and around me. I tried the arms over chest and stand still but it just carried on.
He then gave me an ear bashing that I have no business running where the dog walkers go. I told him it was his duty to keep his dog under control. It is a very big dog. If I had to keep away from dog walking areas there would be no place to run would there!
Feeling a tad cheesed off with him. If it happens again I will take a photo of both him and the dog and take it to our local Police Station. I somehow doubt that he will take much notice though!
Still, I ran 5.87km in 10 minutes less than 2 days ago. 'Only 75 minutes'. Nothing to brag about but an improvement for me so I am pleased. Long way to go to 30 minutes!
