I am fitter than my dog!

I am fitter than my dog!

I was running 10k a while ago but allowed work to stop me running regularly and I lost a lot of fitness, motivation and confidence. I also put weight back on which is frustrating. However, today my chunky friend Max came out with me for a run-walk today and he did pretty well for an old fella. I felt quite encouraged that he was lagging behind and towards the end was worn out while I could have kept running! Great to be out again.

Great to hear you are out running again.

I was only thinking yesterday that you had gone quiet.

Keep running, keep smiling.

Hopefully your chunky monkey can continue on with you on some of your runs building back up to where you were and he'll become a lean svelte running machine, too 😁. He's a handsome old guy!
