My mind wanted to run last week but my body apparently needed a full rest week post-marathon. I went for a run last Friday and my quad was still a little sore. I decided to rest over the weekend and start up again today. I felt fine today but didn’t want to push it.
I want to get in a good “base maintenance” week (not sure what else to call it) since I leave for Ireland in a week and won’t be running while I’m over there. Matt and I did look for races to do in Ireland and we found one – the County Clare Marathon – but it’s not going to work out schedule-wise. We were going to do the “mini-marathon” (as they call it) of 6 miles. A complete and total fun run. I’m bummed. It would be nice to be an international racer 🙂
So Saturday was our date day/night and we started off by going to a dog park in Radnor. Radnor is a posh suburb of Philly, also known as the Main Line. We (and our Honda) don’t fit in.
It was a beautiful day.
Hawk played around in the creek…
and looked for squirrels.
A photo shoot ensued.
After Hawk was sufficiently exhausted, Matt and I headed into Philly for drinks, dinner, and a concert. It was a good day.
How was everyone’s weekend? Any races or good training runs? Tell me about it, I’m in running-withdrawal!
