Can't believe I've finished Week 4 already

As someone who never, never did sports, always the last to be picked for teams, characterised by my dear mother at various times as overweight, flatfooted and completely unco-ordinated, I can't explain how proud I feel to have finished W4R3 feeling barely out of breath!!! The dreaded W5R3 is a week away and I do believe unless I trip over, I will make it!

The dog is fed up however. Ball-throwing time has been reduced somewhat. He is taking revenge by stopping to do a poo at the wrong moment.

Dogs do have a habit of doing that; I run with 2 on a regular basis and I do wisgvthey'd learn to synchronise at least!

They always poo during running intervals. I remember jogging on the spot almost every run waiting for Marty to finish.

Well...as long as he does not substitute the erstwhile ball for the present poo y'all should be fine :)

Seriously though - well done and isn't it a great feeling :)

See you at Graduation! :)

Well done. We all dread w5 but you will get through it. I wish I could run with my dogs but I would fall over as I usually have one a long way in front and the other sniffing something a long way back. So only having to stop to pick up poo is really good

😂 I know the dog pooing at the wrong time thing! I had to do most of my run this morning clutching a warm poo bag in my hand!!! 😷💩

There should be alternative podcasts for dogwalkers where Laura says things like "now wave your bag of warm poo in the air"
