In the meantime, I will continue to rehab in physical therapy, cross training & foam rolling.

Speaking of foam rolling, I have a mood swing in the middle of a sentence every time I foam roll. It goes something like this: I love you, son of a nutcracker. Anyone else do that too?

Will (my PT) gave me the okay to start easing into some leg work at the gym. I feel like I’m in a good place right now and ready to start a more structured training program, but it’s so overwhelming. I’m not sure where to start. Guess it’s not a bad problem to have.

I had some time between PT and another appointment so I walked around El Estero Lake. It’s 1.25 miles around which was the perfect distance to catch some fresh air.

I saw someone cruising over the ocean. Their view must have been incredible.

It was all fun and games until the fog started to roll in. It’s oddly fun to try and beat it.

Oh and just in case you think this knucklehead is so cute, sweet cuddly and innocent….

He is not.

I caught this little 15 pounds of punk rubbing his butt on my yoga mat yesterday. He is such a dick.

The germophobe in me could not handle it.

My life tip of the day: invest in Lysol stock now.

What are you currently training for?

Does anyone else catch their pets acting a fool?

Do you have a coach or trainer? If so, please share your thoughts.

  1. Hi Jacqueline, I just started reading your blog. Thanks for the fun read. Does your pup run with you? I’ve got a small pup about your little guy’s size, he refuses to run certain routes (Fort Ord). I am thinking due to a past experience with some nasty dogs chasing us. But now he started to stop multiple times on our Cannery Row run. I am wondering if it’s too much for the little pup, we average 4-6 miles 3-4 times a week….thoughts?

    • Hi Sarah, welcome! I’m not running right now, but when I did Bam would run a little with me. We started alternating run/walking and he was almost up to a 5K then I got injured. I think it depends on the breed, age, temperament, etc.

  2. (You know) I have a coach, and I coach other runners! Yes, even coaches need a coach. It’s easily my best personal investment – over gyms or yoga studios. It removes the fatiguing process of making decisions for yourself, and helps prevent injury. It pushes you out of your speed/distance comfort zones, teaches you new types of training and keeps you on schedule! i’m much less likely to skip a run OR cross-training workout, because I don’t want to report back with a “0” to the Coach.

    And all of that said, I CANNOT wait until our workout dates include some run/walk intervals, and then eventually, your return to the sport you love the most. 🙂
