I took Sparky out again this morning. He may have improved...a little...tiny..bit. At any rate, our time was a little bit faster, so that's good. First mile in 11:15, so that's a PR for Sparky. After the next .7 Sparks fizzled out and wanted to just stop and rest. I thought I was going to have to carry him home, but he perked up after walking a little while. He runs twice as far as I do, with all the zig zagging. I took him home and finished the last little bit alone. So 2nd mile in 11:07 total.
I have heart-heavy work ahead of me today, so wish me luck!
