This week has been one for the books. One of the most stressful weeks I've ever had. First, last Saturday Max and I were attacked by a big dog that was off his leash. This dog picked Max up and threw him around like he was nothing and slammed into my knee, sending me to Centra Care on Sunday (y'know, my favorite place besides Solantic). Luckily the knee is just sore and Max only got a couple of scratches (don't ask me how). Then I had to deal with animal control and the owner of the dog who lives in my building. Monday I got some news on my health. Chances are I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome but I need further blood work to confirm it. Tuesday I woke up to no air conditioning, which in Florida is a death sentence. So I spent the day dealing with that. Wednesday I took Madeline back to the vet because she was losing weight and not using the litter box. They gave her an enema and laxative and nothing happened overnight so we ended up back at the vet on Thursday. Even after IV fluids and another enema, nothing happened. So I took her to a specialist on Friday who had to give her anesthesia and perform a procedure on her to get it out manually (translation-mucho dinero). So needless to say an emotional week. I tried to meditate as much as possible, eat well and keep my running schedule but I'm sure the stress wasn't great on my heart. Luckily I'm going to pick up Maddy this morning and I'm hoping for a boring weekend of cuddling and healing. If anyone needs me I'll be hiding.
On the running front, not bad. Mile repeats Tuesday, hill workout Thursday and today was my first 5 miler! My heart rate went up towards the end of the run, but totally doable. Yay for longer runs! ♥
