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.

  • Go you... and he did well too... keep ing up with you...he is a braver 'man' than I :)

  • He did it cold turkey with no C25K build up!!

  • Little monkey.. he looks good on it though :)

  • 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!

  • Well done you! And well done Max.

  • Ahh, I remember Max from a previous post - he is lovely! Keep up the good work :)
