Yesterday we went to the Zoo. This zoo is a 15-minute drive from home and the only one in Holland that allows dogs in the Zoo. We wanted to see how Bella would react to the animals.
When we started the tour the first thing we saw were the brown bears, those were a bight frightening for her. But after that she wasn’t afraid except for the …. donkeys LOL. She wouldn’t approach them while at the tigers she was close to the glass. Below you find some photos I took yesterday.
My favorite animals in the zoo are the tigers, the elephants and the giraffes. What’s your favorite animal in the zoo?
Finally! I ran my first long run yesterday since May 7th. I was kind of nervous before starting: could I do this? I decided to run at a slow pace (actually it was faster than the pace recommended by my schedule) and run for 10 minutes with 1 minute walking break and this worked out very well for me.
I needed this run because it gives me confidence I can do that half marathon training again and a good long run was what I needed after struggling so much with my runs lately. Let the training continue!
Today is a rest day. My legs are still very tired from yesterdays run and walking through the zoo for about 3 hours.
