Thanks everyone, I've not reported it as I think I spooked the little fella by running from behind, and there was a loud river next to us. I will take dogs a bit more seriously when I'm running, but haven't got the fear. .. Thanks for reassurance about the fitness, I'll give it a couple days and then start gently. It's looking fairly clean so shouldn't take too long. Happy running everyone!!
This morning a dog went for me as I ran past and left a couple puncture wounds in my leg, one of them a bit deep & gaping, on muscle next to shin. They've been cleaned out now and a couple steri strips added as they won't stitch up dog bites.
My query is, has anyone had this sort of injury, and must I really go a whole week without a run, given the wound I can't even swim instead, any ideas how I can make sure my fitness doesn't drop terribly? I normally run around 5 hours a week and fear I might go a bit crazy without my weekend 'long' run - Thanks loads for any advice!
