W6r2 new places new distractions

I have been running with my faithful little dog who has been a great running companion so far, obedient and well behaved, trotting along beside me like it's a stroll in the park. Today I fancied somewhere different after the surprisingly difficult w6r1 (where did that come from?!), went to a beautiful park and omg, flamin dog was a nightmare, she pulled, she lunged, she barked at passers by, I spent so much time trying to get her to jog in a straight line with me that I all but missed Laura's instructions. It was stressful and annoying and I forgot to think about the running bit, it was over before I knew it!

Does that count as being in the zone, running but not being aware of it?! W6r3 on Tuesday, still looking forward to it (sans chine) :)

  • Sorry but your post just made me chuckle, I can picture you being taken by surprise as your pooch decided to have fun! You did the run which is all that matters, onto run 3, good luck with it

  • Sounds like I could do with her to take my mind off the running sometimes! Good luck with R3 tomorrow x

  • Perhaps the your faithful companion was trying to help by distracting you. Give him another biscuit.
