This week may have been getting a little bit of what I need. Thankfully the fever was very short lived, but a low grade temp lingered. I wasn’t down and out, but I really wasn’t feeling like running in the beginning of the week, so I didn’t. Plus I was busy wrapping up Spring into Action, which I’m excited to share with everyone now!

Friday Intention: let’s see how I feel
It was actually a really nice morning to run for a change, and I was overdressed and the HS runners were running in the neighborhood again. I was working on some nice positive splits and then the last mile saved the day.
Long rant, feel free to skip: Unknown to me, Mr. Judy was also actually walking Bandit at the time. We’ve had some run-ins with one guy in our neighborhood who doesn’t like any dogs anywhere near his property; mainly because his dog goes ballistic. We’ve always made it a point to go past his property before we cross the street. This particular day Mr. Judy was actually on the street across from this property.
The owner came out, ranting and literally raving at Mr. Judy. With the dog off leash. Then he basically let the dog attack Bandit (Bandit was not harmed, thankfully), and after a few seconds deigned to call his dog off.
At which point the owner turned his ire on Mr. Judy, who notified the police when he got home. We don’t really want the police to go talk with the owner because he’ll most likely know who called them, although I don’t think he knows where we live.
Thankfully he is several blocks away. Unfortunately his house is on an intersection where we usually cross. Which means we have to stop going there completely (at least for now), which also cuts out about half our neighborhood from Bandit’s walks.
On the other hand one of his neighbors, who lives across the street (fence dog lady) has a habit of walking said fence dog off leash — I’m not super fond of her dog, either, but even avoiding that intersection we are still likely to run into her. It’s a no win situation.
ETA: we did run into her today. Dog off leash, although he is hooked up to a leash which he carries in his mouth. She said the neighbor is a sweetheart. Well clearly not to us. Her dog (which she held onto while we talked, mostly, but not completely) didn’t faze Bandit thankfully.
It seems like there’s always some nut job dog owner in the neighborhoods we’ve lived in. We had one where we lived in Austin, too.
Sunday Intention: easy time on feet
A wintery day with even a few snow pellets out there on the run. I just took it easy. I was dressed correctly for the weather, which always helps. The Robins are out of control! They’re everywhere! Right about now I bet they wish they’d stayed South.
Favorites of the week
Aside from the nutty dog owner, it was a pretty quiet week. There wasn’t a lot of movement, but I was very busy putting the finishing touches on Spring into Action and some other things. I had meant to go to my moms this week but between not feeling 100% and the stuff I needed to work on it didn’t happen.
There was sushi this week so there’s that. Hey, it’s actually only been a month since I had sushi!
Coming up on Tuesday & Friday: Tuesday I’ll review our Wildgrain trial box. What’s a Wildgrain box, you ask? You’ll have to wait until Tuesday! On Friday it’s time to cozy up with some hot beverages. Maybe by then we won’t actually need hot beverages!
