Adapting to a puppy and Half Marathon Aftermath....
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
I'm sure you all have read that we adopted a puppy on Saturday. Crunch is fitting into our lives very well. He is the sweetest little boy, and seems to have adjusted from being with his 7 brothers and sisters very well. I was very afraid that he would be horrible through the night - but so far, so good. He wakes up once through the middle, and then usually makes it to somewhere between 5:30 or 6....which is wake up time anyway.
We have only had a handful of accidents, and they are all our fault, not paying attention - or not just taking him out when he wakes up from a nap.
We have joked that we were going to change his name from Crunch to Hoover....because that is how he eats...LOL....but Crunch stays....although it may become Krunch because our last name starts with a "K".
So - Monday was my first day with Crunch, my niece, and post half let down....WOW what a day it was.
I woke up with some bizzare pains....a sore toe, ankles and a bruise on my left thigh that I'm not sure where I got that....and just generally feeling tight. Not too sore. As the day went on - the legs got tighter so by the time it was dark I was walking around like an old lady.
I really just wanted a nap - but with a puppy and a niece......not happening!
Today - I am not sore, not tight, and the toe still hurts - but all is good.
I think Thursday, I will get a small 3-4 mile run in. Next week I need to attack my new routine....not sure what it is yet - I'll let ya know.
Time for the puppy to do his thing....have a great night.
