Generally perceived wisdom is distance before time (unless for example you are training for something like the 1.5 mile army test!!) but being careful not to extend your longest run or the overall weekly distance by more than 10% in any week and ideally having a step back week every 4th week
Podds, that sounds like good news for the DG, tho I'm not sure what it means when something is 'heating by the 2nd intention'? At least they are keeping a good eye on him, and my understanding is that chemo is far less tough for dogs than people, so hopefully the worst is well behind him now.
Basically this is how a deep graze heals - i.e. from the bottom up and then sort of glazes across the top as opposed to primary intention which is when you pull edges together and stitch / staple..........
Great cycling Noggs - glad you enjoyed it - I think Mr P's pal has done that one (he's mega into his cycling and quite a decent cyclist apparently!) Enjoy Amsterdam - you've earned it
Fingers crossed for your eyes Tubbs (well permanently crossed really given how many battles you have with various hozzies etc)
Well the DG and I have been up to Potters Bar today to get his staples removed and they are generally pleased with him although part of the lower end of the wound which is healing by 2nd intention is slightly infected........however they're not too concerned and think it will heal clean eventually without antibiotics
I had thought that this would be our last trip up, until 3 months into chemo when he needs another CT scan, but the soft tissue vet I saw says I need to rebook with oncology so we are back up there on 15th Sept and hopefully they will then assess his wound as well enough healed to start the chemo
