10k Training: Running Partner Down :(

First lets start with some good news. I honestly can’t believe this number, I’m VERY close to the point where I will stop trying to lose weight and start focusing on toning. I can’t wait!


The second bit of  fun news is I have a race this weekend! The Get Lucky 7k, I’m going to try and run 4.35 miles in under 40 min. Pased on my last few 5 mile runs and the fact that this course has very few (if any) hills I think I can do it. This is race 2 out of my goal of 4 but I think that goal might go up in distance and number of races.

Now for the bad news, my running partner Cooper (the cutest Golden-Doodle in the world) broke his toe. 

  Cooper and I went for a run on Tuesday of last week  (5.01 Miles in 52:23) no problem.  Then all of the sudden Friday night Mac noticed him limping and when we took a closer look the outside of his paw was bruised and swollen. After a doctors check up and an x-ray….yep broken.  He is in a splint for at least 4 weeks, and we have to limit his movement as much as possible.  His foot can’t get wet (kinda a pain when you go to the bathroom outside… and pain pills, which help keep him calm but also cause..well umm…problems.

Poor little guy 🙁

  1. Poor Cooper, hope he feels back to his feisty self soon.

    Good luck on the 5k this wknd. (I wish I could run but my doctor won’t let me). It’s awesome you are close to just being on maintenance. I can’t wait until I am at that point (but i am only 76 days into this all and not be too hard on myself). Can’t complain about the 13 pounds and 16 inches so far…
