Can I do it again?

It's been 6 days since Vineman and even though I know my body is not fully recovered, is still slow and tired...*sniff* I want to do it again!

Yes, I'm in the midst of a 2,000-mile roadtrip. Yes, I'm still exercising here. I'm just already feeling like I want to do another race! Maybe I need to look at my training plan and see where I can squeeze in races as training runs and such...

In other news, poor Max is not in a good way today. On his walk this morning, he yelped every time the leash touched his ear. When I went to check it out, I found it was very oozy and bloody and stinky - a major ear infection. He was in quite a lot of pain so we blew off our morning FAST run at the trial and high-tailed it over to the emergency vet. It appears to be bacterial in nature, no yeast, and deeper in the ear canal is clear. They gave him his first treatment and I've got drops for the next few days, as well as ear cleaner once the pain is diminished enough to attempt it.

And with all that, screaming any time his ear was touched, he still managed another double-Q at the trial today - that's 2 days in a row!

Poor doggie!

It took a year to diagnose Sophie's ear infection....she'd come from a puppy mill and had a very antibiotic resistant bug living in there. I hope he gets relief soon.

I don't know what I'd do without my fur babies!

Thanks for your comment on my blog.

Wishing you success in balancing your "addictions!"

Yikes, poor Max. Kiana used to get some chronic ear infections and one got that bad.

Sounds like he is on his way to a Double MACH!
