If you ever need to keep that pace slow again, give me a shout I managed to slow you down on that walk over the hills a few weeks ago, so I'm sure I could slow you down again, although admitedly my running is speeding up gradually now.
The only problem now for me is that I'm starting to ignore my heart rate monitor (thats what helps me 'keep it slow'), or rather my running buddy ignores it.
This thread has been going for years... glad I found it!
My kids have been banging on at me for ages about getting a dog and I've always managed to sidestep them. But we do all love dogs and I reckon we can fit a dog into our lifestyle now, especially as I'm back running again and the dog could become my running buddy.
The kids and I like Jack Russels (amongst others) but I wonder what they're like on running? Are those legs just too short or what? I'm no racing snake myself but I reckon I'll be back to half marathons (my best time was 1.32 yonks ago) as my standard level soon, although I might just do the odd 20 (I really enjoyed the Worcester 20 where I was pleased to do 3.09) but usually it'll be the 5-10K distance for daily runs. Of course, part of the idea is for the kids (read "teenagers") to also get the dog out for walks themselves, as they've promised they will (we'll see eh?) so in theory the dog could be doing my runs and also walks with the teens so that would be its 'standard mileage'. But if I get injured (been there a few times) I don't want to have a dog that will go stir crazy without its miles...
