Easy Five with Ivey (my dog)

I went for an easy five miler to keep my legs loose after the race yesterday. Ivey really enjoyed the run. Now that the weather is getting nicer, I'm going to make a concerted effort to take Ivey along more often. But, I'll have to watch how far I take her... Five miles is the upper end of her limits right now.

Run recap- 4.97 miles, 49:37, 9:59 pace

I felt the same way. In times past I know I have gone out the day after a race and really pushed it, but today I was happy to just let it ride.

Nice run yesterday. We need to hook up for next weekend?

I saw a guy running with his dog during the Chambersburg Half. Seems pretty cool that you can build up the distance running with your furry friend.

Wow... That's a long way for a dog to go. I guess they're like us though... build up and they're fine. However, you'd have to make sure to keep them hydrated. They don't have the same cooling mechanisms we do.
