Feral Friday: Who Let The Dogs Out?! 😨

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 9/12 – Day 5…6 Miles…💪🏼

Hi Friends. Well at least i now know why lots of blind people stay (trapped) indoors…Not 1 but 2 attempts of stopping my charity challenge through dog attacks!

The first one came at around the 1.5 mile mark, the yapping and growling made me jump. At least it was a yapper which meant it was a small dog so i stood a chance of surviving. I felt the thud from my right side as the dogs paws clamped the front and the back of my knee, trying to hold me in a death grip so it could sink it’s teeth in…But the momentum of me continuing to walk threw it off before the hungry, gaping, growling muzzle could do it’s damage. I’ve learned to keep walking as if i stop the dog can get a proper hold before the owner (i hope) can call off their feral dog. “Wow” i thought as i checked my knee for any scratches…There were none, yay! “What a walk this is turning out to be, lol”. 😀

Ten minutes later after i’d walked up the steepest slope the second attack happened…This time the growling didn’t start until the beast (it was another yapper) clamped it’s jaws around the top of my running shoes and tried to rag my laces off like i was a huge toy! The growling had started now and the sudden clamp onto my foot made me jump again…But like before i kept on walking and thankfully the dog didn’t have lockjaw and soon let go, but not until it had a last ditch attack up my hamstrings but it failed again, yay!

I’m so glad i get the chance to write all of the daily adventures down that i have on the trail…As you’d think i’m just making this up, lol! 🤣 I was glad i stayed out for 6 miles (2 laps) even though all of this happened on lap 1 and i did just want to go home and feel sorry for myself…But “No laps…No flapjack” 😋

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼
