    Loki does like to hang loose in heatwaves.

    I’ve not run (again) as I got home then went to the vet with the small furry boy. One more day at work then 12 days off...so you can blame me when it rains from Thursday :) I’ll try to run most days when I’m off though.

    Hope your head clearing run was good, Ringy xx

    Vet trip means his steroid is back to twice daily. He started back on his liver meds last week. So he will now have his heart, liver, anti hypertensive, anti clotting and steroids each morning...plus an extra steroid at night. Hopefully he will be encouraged to eat but the vet said she felt his abdomen guarding, so is wondering about his pancreas now too. She’s on leave for a couple of weeks from the end of the week - but I think he will probably need to have another scan when she’s back (she’s the specialist sonographer at the vet), see what’s worsening. I know she’s trying to prepare me for worsening, after all HCM patients do well to last a couple of years - but he’s only got focal HCM so maybe we get longer? The liver stuff is untested in cats really, so little research on it.

    So that’s us :) Thanks for asking xx

    Oh no such a worry for you. Everything crossed that it’s something straightforward that they can help with

    B95C4CA2-284C-4966-8883-620575847F43.jpeg Well a measly 2.1 miles for me today. It was just to hot. I walked the boys before hand very early. We are now going to not move for the day. I slept wrapped in a wet towel last night so slept really well.

    3.5 miles this morning but it was just toooooo hot! Don’t really feel like I’ve rehydrated properly all day. Think I might give it a miss tomorrow as I’ve been fit for nothing ever since...

    Awful wasn’t it I ran two miles then had a two hour nap. Today has not been productive.

    Deary me, I’ve had two days off due to work/Oscar/heat/needed a day off...so tonight we were booked to go out to dinner at 7pm. The restaurant called and moved us to 8pm (actually turned out for the best) so husband texted me and told me (whilst I was in the middle of a manic day) about the time change and said I had time to go for a little run now. So I did my little “bandstand and back” loop...2.5 miles of boiling hot headwind, then a tailwind like I was being blown along by a hairdryer on full blast! Madness.

    Tomorrow morning I shall run a few miles for you Ringy, whilst sending all the positive energy I can muster. Thinking of you xx

    Two runs this morning.

    1 mile with Woody as this was his first since he'd hurt his leg, all good and then 2 miles on my own.

    Wales is hilly!

    Good boy Woody :) hope you enjoyed it.

    I did a too hot run (got my timings all wrong for going out!), 4.75 miles. So not a Ringy kind of distance (nor speed) but that one was for you. Keep strong xx

    Another run for you Ringy, I’m carrying on whilst you are currently unable. So it’s much cooler, 4.5 miles but could barely hit my LSR pace...so much too slow for you :) I dressed up especially as well. Ahem.

    Hope you’re not too sore this morning. Kisses from Oscar Woo xx

    Well done! You really do have the most amazing smile!
    Pain is surprisingly not too bad, doesn’t hurt until I move the wrong way when it mostly feels like I’ve cut myself shaving. I’m being careful though, moving my arm gently to keep it mobile but letting hubby make me cups of tea etc!

    @Ringypie im glad you are doing ok and the pain is manageable. Good to hear hubby is on tea duty. @Mrs Funkin well done you. It is much cooler today yay.

    5 miles today for me. I had planned a longer one starting with me and Loki going down the river early but we slept in and it gets to busy later on. so I took the boys out then went out alone.

    Good news!! If I feel well enough through the treatment I can run!! Obviously not until my armpit has healed, and I need to be careful to not overdo it but I am glad! The oncologist said she wants me to carry on as close to how I normally would as possible.
