Dog days and dog years

Hi everyone! Another weekend has come and gone and I’ve run the farthest that I’ve ever run again. Nine miles yesterday! I have a 10 mile run next week and then two weeks of relative rest until race day!

This post is mostly about Indy though so let’s get to the important stuff πŸ™‚

wpid-20150315_152226.jpgIndy has really developed a love for people furniture but she also can really tell the comfy stuff from the not-so-comfy stuff. For instance she really doesn’t like the basement couch even though it comes with a matching chair. On an unrelated note, anyone want to buy wonderfully comfortable matching couch and chair?

That picture of Indy was from Thursday or Friday I think. Afterwards we decided to go out for sushi at a place we’ve recently discovered in northish Raleigh called Kai sushi and sake bar. They have a three roll special for $24 which is not a bad price at all and they have some unique rolls that they served to us on this excellent fish dish.

wpid-20150320_200158.jpgThis weekend was Indy’s birthday. She’s four years old now, making her around 28 in dog years. She still hasn’t settled down and found a man but that’s ok. She can live her life the way she wants to as long as she’s happy.We went for a long run/walk. She went about 5 miles with Amanda before they turned around and I continued on my for 9 miles. I hurt something in my leg around mile 7.5 and had to take my first ice bath when I got back. Amanda was very amused at my reaction although I didn’t see what was so funny about it.

We seared a steak for Indy as a special birthday treat. You can see her enjoying it below. If I had a premium subscription to upload videos you could see her inhale the whole thing at the end but alas, poor graduate students can’t afford such luxuries, especially after splurging on a better dinner for the dog than ourselves.

After her long walk and delicious dinner she couldn’t fight off the cuddles. I don’t think she would have anyway πŸ™‚

wpid-20150322_221621.jpgI added another picture with me in it too but the angle and lighting aren’t half as good as the first one. Also Indy looks slightly more depressed…. or maybe has a stomach ache from eating a steak whole. Next time we’ll cut it up some for her πŸ™‚
