Safe and sound.

Milo is finally home. After his near death experience he is back home where he belongs - as though nothing ever happened. And much to our delight there are no complications from his encounter with the common brown snake. No sooner did he get in the backyard to say HI to Bella and Moose he was out marking his territory and the cheeky little bugger even christened the area where he killed the brown. It was like his way of saying "See, you didn't get me - but I got you". I am sure he was a cat in his past life with 9 lives as he has had some close calls - Milo is a risk taker. The only thing the vet said was that he may be a little flat for a couple of days but other than that he will be back to his old self - hopefully no more snake killing for this 12yr old Foxy.

Some more good news for the day - I hit a new distance PB. 12.06km in 1hr 10mins and I am pleased as punch. This sort of feeling just cant seem to get any better - I really don't ever want it to end. These feelings (even those that you experience out on a run that are painful) make you want to keep going further, faster, harder.

How do my legs feel this evening? Mmmmmmm, sore but that's ok - the poor things I don't think know what has hit them over the last 4 days - I have totally flogged them silly. Yesterdays Windtrainer session added extra sting as well.

Looking forward to tomorrows track session.

Your hard work will be rewarded.
