I've been jogging!

I did yoga sunday, then went jogging with Cerb and Jas mon, tues, and last night. I feel soooo good right now. I haven't jogged in about 8 years. The last 3 weeks or so I've really been working out on a regular basis. I can tell a huge difference.

How is everybody else doing?

Hey girl, that is great to hear! Ive been walking/running with Tigger, short distances, walk some then jog, walk, then jog...ect..when I can. Right now we have 50MPH winds so its not fun to be outside at all lol.

Tigger makes me feel slow, when I am running he litterally just walks with a big stride...lol Does Cerbie do that with you ? hehe.

I have a Pilates CD that is collecting dust I need to crack into...lol.

I'm running almost non-stop after a puppy. Does that count?

I wear a pedometer and aim for a minimum of 10,000 steps per day. I've averaged 11,000 per day since October 2009. I walk for 20 minutes for my lunch break at work and then take Elsa for a walk after work and long hikes on weekends with friends and their dogs Walking is really so addictive. _Marie
Love me; Love my dog

Generally Cassie and I walk 3 - 6km per day. I can't jog or run because of my bad feet - broken them and never really back to 100%. Combine that with the amount of home renovation and landscaping I've done over the past month it is no wonder I've lost 13lbs. But unfortunately I have a ways to go before I get to my goal weight. Cassie loves the extra workout but I have to be careful coming into the summer heat as she gets heat exhaustion very easily.

i've had dobbies, a husky and now a crazy 8 month old lab! i had to use a pinch collar. i don't know if they are available in the uk. what i've done with all of them is put them on the pinch and put a long lead on them. i walk around and don't worry about them. when i see they aren't paying attention, i make a sudden turn in the opposite direction which will cause them to give themself a good jerk and make them look. at the end of the session, they are on a 25ft lead, walking with their head on my leg paying attention to everything i do. it took 3 good walking sessions with my lab for her to walk beautifully and ignore other dogs. we are now working on sitting when i stop walking but that won't be too hard.

if you can't find a pinch, try the correction collar. the pinch doesn't hurt them unless you abuse it, but they are causing the force to themself not you yanking on it. we met up with some people for a dog show this weekend and the lady kept yanking on the dogs correction collar. she'd sh*t herself if she collapsed the dogs' asaphagus. i stay out of other people's business when it comes to that though. she has 3 beautiful border collies and i guess if the other two were perfect and 1 was crazy, then she knew something she was doing was working for her. anyway, my experience with this came from one of our K9 officers where i was working at the time. my husky was horrible on leash so i used this method, well she actually came to the house with her shepard and showed me how to do it. it worked a miracle! i'm telling you it works. walk one way, suddenly and quickly take a different direction so the dog will be caught off guard and will put the pressure himself. he'll pay attention to you in about 10 min after that.
