W1R3 / week 1 - completed

Damn, I just finished writing to you and stupid technology deleted it. Maybe it was not optimistic / positive enough :P

So long story short: I did it with my dog (she needs to re-learn all jogging process). It was definitely a run, mostly faster than I planned (my beloved sled-dog). We need to work it out how to make those joint runs relaxing and de-stressing.

Keep your fingers crossed for my back, as it suffered yesterday a bit. And they were the reason for my last IC break.

Happy running!

I was sorting that out during last couple of months ;) so now it's getting better and better :) I just need to learn to run with dog again, the same as she needs to learn how to run next to me instead of pulling :P we will get there eventually. I think I'll be doing 1 run alone 2 runs with her - plan still under evaluation.

My doggie determination fluctuates. But I believe running is good for both of us, so it's worth trying and hopefully only initial effort ;)

Well done for getting out there, dear Iga! And with doggie too - wow! I admire your doggedness. ๐Ÿถ Did you feel good after the run? Take care of that back.

I am inching my way off the IC, and leg is starting to feel much better. Might even try R1W1 again this weekend. Failing that I have a physio appointment booked in for Wednesday with a very well respected running physio. I am hoping I will be able to cancel it, all being well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Afyer run I felt better. My PMS crying mood (of course without any reason) was gone :) I have my another chiropractor appointment this Friday.

I hope your leg allow you to run this weekend without even a blink.
