Today was my day off and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I went for a trail run with Boomer. I was going to drive up to Lake Chabot but I slept in instead and stayed close. Boomer and I went to Garin.
Boomer tried his rabbit hunting skills. Some day, he will flush another jack rabbit out of one of these tubes. He's convinced of this anyway.
My leader, scanning the hills for what's up ahead.
We are heading down to that trail below.
We had to get through this family first. I just asked very nicely, "excuse me Momma Cow, can we scoot on by you and your little baby?" She stepped aside and we ran by. You can see Boomer in the far right of the picture. Evidently he ran by before asking permission.
Back down to flatter ground.
Cross the creek one more time.
Feeling pretty good, we extend our run and make a loop around Jordan Pond.
And, stop for a family photo. Boomer looks deep in thought, or spaced out here, doesn't he?
After 6.5 weeks of moving every day, I am seeing positive changes in my body and that makes me very happy. Clothes are looser around my mid section. My hips are more narrow and my butt is higher. I can feel everything is getting tighter. I've lost 1.6 pounds. I wasn't really expecting to lose weight, so I'm not concerned about that. If I do lose weight, I won't complain either. I'm using heavier weights in the classes at the gym and also two risers under my step instead of one on each side. As of tonight, Keith has completed six weeks of classes at the gym. He goes at least four times a week, sometimes five. He says he hasn't noticed any physical changes yet but he has lost three or four pounds. He's not complaining. ;)
