Hi all, for 2012 we are trying canicross to get ourselves fit! Luna, Rudi and I are going for runs 3 times a week to build ourselves up and get fitter. We’re aiming to be running 5k in 10 weeks. We are now 3 weeks in and are running/ walking about 3k in 30 mins so far. The dogs are loving it, when it’s time to jog Rudi takes off and has to be urged to slow down in his excitement. Luna sets her pace and she sticks to it at my walk or running pace (that’s what Borders do). She’s a perfect running partner!
I’ve bought a new running belt with bungee lead for the Rudester as I already had one to start off with, so both dogs can run along and my hands are free. We’ve tried a few different places to run and different terrains to keep us all from getting bored. Will get some pics up of us all soon.
Food wise, Rudi is getting extra fresh fish in his diet and some extra protein, Luna has gotten fat over xmas so she’s a bit miffed her food ration hasn’t gone up like the boys 🙂
