For the last year or so I have done the vast majority of my runs with my dog.
I find her a great companion and a incentive to get out there on nights I don't really feel like it.
Most of my runs with here are trail / fell runs-not the best preparation for road races but still the most enjoyable runs I do.
When I increased my milage for a marathon last may I did not do any of my runs over 13 miles with her, not sure at that time she would be ok with the increased pace (most of my LSR were 7:40ish minute mile pace) or distance.
I am now thinking she is better suited to the longer/ faster runs than me-she has no problem on a 42 minute tempo 10k or back to back 12 mile days.
I will start to increase my training for my next marathon soon (London) and think although trail running is not the best preparation I will keep to it and take my dog on the longer runs upto marathon distance I think-any one have experiance on this?
