Friday Facts

Our one dog, Spiral, was hit by a car on Wednesday and is in hospital with a badly broken leg. He will spend the weekend there while they wait for the swelling to go down so that they can put the leg in a cast. We miss you Spiral!


I bought new running shoes yesterday. I went to buy another pair of Nike Pegasus 28, but bought the Nike Citius +4 instead. They are incredibly comfortable and fit my shape of foot perfectly. I’ll give some feedback once I’ve done some proper running in them.


I’m running the Sasol Half Marathon tomorrow morning. It is a 6AM start so I will be up early to get there in time. I have a non-running injury to a muscle on my left side just below my ribs. It’s been hampering my running like a broken rib would and I hope it will be fine for 21.1km tomorrow morning.


That is all from me at the moment, have a splendid weekend everyone!

Those are some nice-looking shoes...I'll be interested in what you think. Best wishes to your pup and good luck on your race! I hope the muscle behaves. Honeymoon injury, huh? Haha

I'm so sorry about your puppy. I hope Spiral heals very quickly.

Have a great race tomorrow! I hope the rib does not make it unpleasant.

I hope your dog will recover soon!

How can a race start at 6:00 am? In this perspective, you'll have a pre-race breakfasf at 3:30 am :)
I hope your muscle will go well. Good luck on the Sasol Half Marathon!

Oh no poor Spiral! Glad it wasn't worse, poor thing. Enjoy the new shoes and the race!

Hope Spiral is okay - and I love his name.

Are you cutting a hole in your new shoes?

HappyTrails said...

Heal well Spiral!!!

Good luck at the half marathon - isn't that like a sprint for you??? ;-)

BTW, I wear the Pegasus 28 on trail because the trail version fit my foot weird - it is OK, but not extremely stable.

Spiral is such a cutey! I love when a dog looks like a dog - no bows or curls, just 100% muscly doggy fun. I hope he's back to his usual energetic self really quickly and has no complications.

XLMIC said...

Awwww! Poor pup! I hope he heals quickly :) I can imagine it's quite stressful for you, too.

Wishing you well in your race!

Mark said...

Hope you heal quickly and your doggie, too! Interested in your review of the shoe.

Alma said...
