It was a great week here running dogs getting in four days of running.
Starting with 10 mile runs on Monday, 7 mile runs on Tuesday and finishing the week with two days running two teams 4.5 miles on Thursday and Friday.
The dogs enjoyed the runs and especially the two 4.5 mile attitude runs.
Short and fast!
After the 10 mile & 7 mile runs, I realized that we needed a couple of short runs that were just fun!
This was the first week since the long layoff the dogs ran a 10 mile run as well as four days in a week.
We are taking it slowly getting the dogs back to training at their pre-layoff form.
Slowly they are getting their speed back.
The Monday run run was fast and enthusiastic after a three day layoff.
Dogs need their down time, as well as their running time!
Lance had his first run at Lead running with Kira. He did great for his first time and will be running Point for the next several runs getting him comfortable running upfront.
Also looking at the potential of breeding him with Kira this Spring.
They seem to have the same gait when running and could be a good match.
Time will tell as I keep evaluating.
We had some more frigid nights with temperatures in the -20's and -30's.
Now two days off and then back to running Monday.
It is a lifestyle that I love!
Until next week.......
