I have Bella spending a couple of days with us so I brought her along today. The weather was cool, a little overcast for the majority of the day. The dogs LOVE this kind of weather and the soft, moist ground. They were running up and down the side of the trails, hopping through the mud puddles. We spent 3.5 hours today, running around the Sequoia Bayview Trail, the West Ridge Trail and the French Trail. All four dogs were laying down in my car, with their heads down, on the way home. Now that's a good day!

I am amazed at how great my legs feel. With the Pilates and swimming this past week, I figure my legs have been stretched more than they have in the past two years. They don't feel tight at all. I always felt tight before. As a runner, I never took time to stretch. I'm thrilled with how they feel. It could be the rest they've been getting too, but they feel GOOD! They want to move super fast. They just want to go, go, GO. I must say I like it!
I did Pilates yesterday and swam 2100 yards afterwards. Repeat on the schedule for tomorrow. And yes, I'm happy about it. ;)
