Animal Magic

May 22, 2011

Hello! I hope everyone is having a brilliant weekend so far. I’m chilling out at Peter’s parents’ place in Lincolnshire surrounded by pets and wildlife. Peter’s Mum loves animals and has a whole menagerie of pets including Spike the dog:


Tesla the cat (named after some famous scientist dude):


Various ducks:


This one is Sullivan, who thinks he can beat up humans – he’s trying to attack my shoes!


They have also adopted a pair of pheasants


And we found a grass snake. This little blighter gets top marks for trying to take a bite out of Peter Smile


They also have unpictured guinea pigs and rabbits. It’s so relaxing being around all these animals. One day I really want to get a dog, they are the best company! All photos courtesy of Peter – my camera skills aren’t up to scratch yet.

Peter and Spike came with me on my long run this morning. They walked the route (approximately 4 miles) and I ran backwards and forwards for an hour. Spike did some of the running with me, but he’s an old man now and is suffering the after-effects somewhat. I fared rather better – my ITB didn’t bother me at all (the icing, stretching and massaging must be paying off!). The only bit that hurt was my left groin, which is a new one on me, but it seems to have recovered fine.

Thanks for your running advice – I’ll post a schedule later in the week when I’ve had time to contemplate it.
