We’ve been getting Hadrian used to running on a bungee lead so that he can accompany us on some of our adventures.
Because he’s still growing, we only do short distances and are slowly building up. We’re also careful that he doesn’t put too much stress on his joints by bounding downhill so we keep him on a short lead on the descents.
He’s doing really well and can be off the lead if there’s no sheep around, his recall is good and he sticks fairly close by.
We’ve started out with a few trial runs along fell wall in Spring-like weather.
I enjoyed a slow and steady couple of runs out this week as well, Arant Haw and the final Wilson qualifier in nice conditions.
Today was Hadrian’s first summit- Winder, in some really wintery weather. He was an absolute star
Ed has also been doing lots of training with the pup and I refer to them as my ‘fell wall assessors’ as they have a favourite route up and along the wall at the base of the fell and are always keen to report on the weather and ground conditions!
I’m just about on track for #run1000miles but have not been getting wrapped up in the numbers. It’s been a really busy few weeks and I’m generally feeling tired so I’m looking forward to a break!
