I have no idea why Gio is upside down. I could flip it in Photoshop, but meh…He still looks super cute!
The past couple of weeks, Gio has been peeing all over the place. At first, I thought he was just being a jerk and needed a bit of retraining. It happens, right? One night I decided to keep him in the bedroom with me so I could catch him when he woke up for his late night pee session. Imagine my surprise when I caught him not only peeing in my room, but managed to pick him up and he continued to pee. Seriously. Picture that. Me holding a peeing Italian Greyhound.
At that point, I realized that Gio might be sick. (In addition, he was drinking tons of water.) I took a sample of Gio pee to the vet and he has a urinary tract infection and some crystals in his pee. He’s on antibiotics for 2 weeks (no booze for him!) and the vet wants me to stop feeding him that hippie ass holistic food with the Native American and wolf on the package. (I thought it was good for him!)
Anyway, my sister and I had a conversation prior to his diagnosis. I told my sister that I was afraid he wouldn’t be sick and I’d have to deal with the fact that Gio is just a thirsty jerk. The general consensus of my family is that’s what the issue was…until they found out he was, indeed, sick.
Today’s Run: 4.5 miles | 48:22 | 10:46 pace
My legs were tired from yesterday’s hill run. I wanted to do 5-6, but just didn’t feel like adding that .5 miles. Whatever.
Yesterday’s Run: 4.4 miles | 48:00 | 10:55 pace
This was a hill w/out. Here’s how it played out:
20 minute warmup
6 x :60 -:70 hill @ 6-7% incline
13 minute cooldown @1.5% incline (whoops)
This run felt great! I was a bit worried about doing a hill workout on the treadmill, but I didn’t fly off the back of it or anything. I wish I would’ve got a longer cool down just for hte mileage, but I had to get out of there. I can’t hang out on the treadmill for too long.
