This is Daisy, our one year old, 90 pound mastiff mix knucklehead.  She’s a really great stick-chewer.  She’s still learning how to be a good running partner.   She likes to stop and smell the flowers.  Frequently.

Today Daisy and I got up at 5:30 to start the Couch to 5K program together.  There were a few challenges.

First, it was 5:30 and we were both bleary-eyed.  The five minute warm up walk stretched to 10 minutes – Daisy needed a little more time.  ‘Nuff said.

Second, my sports watch needs new batteries so I had to count the seconds in my head.  I kept counting in time to my footsteps which may or may not have been spaced .5 seconds apart.  I tried to detach my counting from my footsteps but it felt like trying to pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time.  Also, I kept losing track of my count when Daisy (and then I) got distracted.

Third, Daisy gets distracted easily.  You do the math.

We both have some work to do.
