We took Puppy to explore the park after work that day and she had a blast running around and exploring the snow (a new thing for her). However, her poor little paws soon got too cold and she got lots of ice stuck between her paw pads and got pretty uncomfortable pretty fast. We are now on the hunt for some doggie-booties she can wear out in the snow.
As for running in the snow? I haven't tried it yet. I plan to get out there tomorrow morning, and will take it really slow and easy, just in case there are some treacherous patches. This morning I did a repeat of last week's crazy hard 'Oh No It Snowed' workout from Meg on Meg Go Run: http://meggorun.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/oh-no-it-snowed-workout.html
This was entirely appropriate today, as the snow is still here in full force (it hasn't actually snowed again but none of it has melted away - so beautiful!). This workout feels super effective! I was very happy this morning: I even managed to do a complete set of the 20 burpees in a row, and didn't stop for a break halfway! (I only managed this once out of the four times - the other sets I did 10 and 10, or 12 and 8). That's progress, right?
Have you been running in the snow where you are yet? Any tips for this?
If you live in freezing weather and have a dog, what do you do about their paws??
Thanks! Have a GREAT weekend!
