Monday: Rest day and wrestling.
Tuesday: 6 miles planned. Woke up to feels like 4 with a 12 mph wind. Was kind of excited, since i felt like I had a good combo of clothing for this kind of weather. Melly wasn't feeling well, so she opted out and I set out alone with Deuce. Since my phone is a wimp and likes to die in this weather, I had gone ahead and put my Christmas music on. Had in the back of my mind the dog that supposedly was attacking other dogs/animals out on my route. I was hoping it had been found and captured. Pretty sure I jumped at every sound I heard that was pretty much the crazy wind, until I got to one of the few houses on my route. I am pretty sure it was a dog about the size of a lab that jumped out behind us. Best I can tell, it was bedded down in the tall weeds around their mailbox. It looked black, but hard to tell in the dark with just my head lamp. Deuce headed out after it, as it was making screaming noises, but I called him off and he came back like a good boy. If I was jumpy before that, I was SUPER jumpy after that event. I did contact the humane society that is located out there post my run, and I did look on all of the wamego pages to see if anyone had reported a loose dog, but saw no posts. I also called the wamego PD, who referred me to the Pott County Sheriff's office who contacted animal control. I sure hope they found the poor dog!
Wednesday: Does grocery shopping with a 4 year old count as cross training? No? Dang it!
Thursday: Planned 5 miles. Was really excited to maybe see the tail end of the geminid's meteor shower. Nope. Woke up to clouds. It actually wasn't too cold this morning, no wind and feels like 24. Didn't see any signs of the dog, so hoping it got caught or reunited with it's owners.
Friday: I took the day off to take stella to KSU vet med and to do a thousand things on my list. Working out was one of those things. I purposely did not take a shower in the morning to force myself to not have any excuses not to work out. Was raining and icy, so no bike ride outside. As you probably guessed, no work out. I ended up going to bed super early and getting 12 hours of sleep! YIKES!
Saturday: 4-5 miles planned. Supposedly sunday would be the colder, but dryer of the two days, so moved my long run to sunday. Got up to snow and ice so made the right decision.
