Three Things Thursday

1.  The husband was taking our dog, Lucy, for a walk last night and a loose dog attacked Lucy and bit her!  She is OK with a few shallow wounds and some scratches.  The husband said he did everything he could to get the dog away from Lucy including trying to sprint away from it but the other dog caught up to them.  Eventually the husband started yelling for help and someone came to help from a nearby house and they finally got away.  He doesn’t know where the other dog came from exactly, only the general vicinity.  Thankfully Lucy’s wounds are not worse and the husband didn’t get injured at all.  We are treating Lucy at home and watching the wounds for infection.  So scary.

2.  In other news … my left shin has been feeling twinge-y lately.  Boo.  Last night it was aching after my run so I got out my trusty 5 gallon bucket and did an ice bath.  It’s feeling better and I’m hoping it stays that way.  I think all the jumping around while doing the 30 Day Shred videos last week aggravated it.  I’ll be having none of that so no more 30 Day Shred for me.  I’ll have to find a different alternative for some cross training at home.

3.  I just registered me and the husband for a trail half marathon in October.  This is one of two half marathons that we are doing back-to-back on my birthday weekend with our running friends.  Friday I’ll be turning 32, Saturday we’ll run 13.1 on trails in Napa, and Sunday we’ll run another 13.1 on the bike path in Folsom.  I’m so excited.  It’s going to be a lot of fun.  Bonus – we’ll qualify for Half Fanatics :)

 

How about some fun stats:

I love this feature on Daily Mile.  Since I started tracking my activities in January 2010 I’ve burned over 1200 donuts.  Booyah! 

 

Do you use Daily Mile?  If so, how many donuts have you burned? 

Anyone a Half Fanatic?
