Lazy Sunday, Day 177, 32.1km (4/19/2009)

We left Dunluce around 7.30 am, a late start, D had, had a few big days and thought it’s time to have a bit of a sleep in and maybe a bit of a rest day as she is really struggling through the days with the high kilometres and the pain in her hips cause from the falls last week. We knew there was a roadside stop about 30 km away so we headed for that.  Before we headed out onto the highway D taught me a new trick to jump over the cattle grids that dot the road and are at the entrance to every station. It was great fun jumping over the grid as I feel a little unsteady when I walk over them so now I have a quick and easy option. Check out the photo of me taken my first leap over a grid. We run off down the road and got to the rest area called marathon, very appropriate, at about 3pm and had a late lunch. As we had some time to settle in and relax, D gave me a large bone full of marrow to chew on for a while, yum! D was giving a message on the rest area concrete table where she fell asleep for a while and the rest of the crew washed the caravans, whilst I also took a nap on the cool concrete floor of the rotunda guarding my D from harm. Soon after the generators were started and the air con went on in the caravan, I always know my place so I was pretty soon into the cool of the indoors for a VIP liver brownie afternoon tea snack. After the sunset the Maremma in me awoke, I could sense the presence of something odd out there on the plain and I was determined to scare it off with my vicious bark, as opposed to my friendly bark and it worked. With my D safe from strange dogs I could go to bed in peace. As I cuddle up on my blankie my thoughts are on D I am hoping the short day and the rest will do her some good the only trouble is we are now 2 days behind schedule and with very high kilometres in front of us it’s really going to be tough to slowly get those days back but I know D has it in her and we still have a long way to go so it’s best to try and get her in top shape again so we can continue in good health and spirits.

Running with you soon
