Went to see Haggis this evening. He is in good hands and is a wee fighter. They are treating the massive infection first. If the infection gets under control then they will attempt to reset his leg but it may take quite a while. He won't be running anytime soon! He is still in a bad place but the vet was impressed that he ate from my hand without the need of gauntlets. Both he and me have had the best sleep in a week over the last 24 hours!
I however have the alarm clocks set again for 5 tomorrow. 10k required me thinks.
Good news story for this morning. Went out at 5am (dawn for me) looking for a friendly stray dog who I have been trying to 'help' for over a week. I fed him scraps most days but for the last week when I have seen him he obviously has a broken leg but I have only been able to find him when I can't get a vet or animal rescue to come out. Came back to my apartment at 7am to find him outside! Anyway, after 5 hours of knashing and sedation (both for me), Haggis is now with a nice vet who is trying to save him and his leg. I will sleep tonight, enjoy a beer and I'm NOT running tomorrow morning!!
Emmy, I'm the same but have I'm blaming old age! There is probably a science about it somewhere but I think if I don't run then I kind of give the body a chance to stiffen up. I train for marathons but even when I have a 4 or 5 run per week program then the only way I can follow it is to do a 'dog walk run' on my days off.
Fantastic Ric!! Can't rival that but I was 40 a day until 21st Sept 2006....11pm if I remember correctly! Started running a few years later because I was then able. Lost a lot of weight and am so proud that I can now be an example to my kids who both run, 'because their dada does'. Good luck with your Cardiff runs.
