Today I only exercised for 270 minutes and I feel nervous and edgy. I hate tapering! On the other hand, it is imperative that I hang close to the house. Weena (black and tan dachsund) broke out in hives and I have been having to give her childrens Benadryl. I have been around animals of all kinds...pigs, horses, cattle, dogs, cats, sheep, goats. I have even helped a wild doe deliver a set of twins in my front yard, but in 47 years, I have never seen a dog with hives!

Hope you had a great weekend and that the rest of the week is active, fun, productive, and safe!

    Wow if 270 is tapering then what is your training day like! emoticon Well you are more than ready! In fact you may need to do TWO tris that day.
Also, I hope that your pup feels better soon. POor baby. -Best RB1

    Hives are miserable for a human so i imagine it's nasty for her too. You call 270 minutes tapering....let's see that would be 4 and a half hours by my calculations. If I ever get to 4 and a half hours of exercise in one day I'll be taking out a full page ad in the local paper!

Good luck in the tri!

    Ah poor baby. I've never heard of a dog with hives either. Sorry you only managed to get in 270 minutes of exercise. I know how it feels when I don't get in more than that. NOT. You are super woman.
