1) Do what you can, start small, end big.
2) Work on it a little at a time, you'll get there!
3) If you're lacking time, try doing short exercise runs when you can. You'll find it adds up to more than you think.
|Baby Pom: Yay, walk time!|
JR: Are we going yet? It feels like we're not going.
Stop taking pictures already! *grumble grumble*
Mommy: *Ahem* JR, that's because you kept detouring to sniff every tree, corner, and post out there...
JR/Baby Pom: That was only the first block and plus, we knew you needed to mentally prepare yourself for the challenge. Anyways, then we would run a full block, walk a block and repeat, but increasing the running part. So, we slowly worked ourselves up to running 2 full blocks before walking a block. It was tough work for mommy but I think we handled it quite well. It took a lot of effort but by the end of the week, we were like seasoned pros.
Mommy would also add in random exercise points. For example, if we were waiting for Daddy at the car, she'd walk us to the end of the parking lot then run back to the other side and repeated that several times until he was ready. Hey, exercise can happen anywhere and every little bit adds up to a lot. If you're low on time, try doing short spurts when you can and you'll find those add up. Throughout the week, we'd switch it up. We'd jog the first 4 blocks, then walk a bit, then jog the rest or we'd jog in the end or we'd sprint like crazy at the beginning. It was a lot of random fun. We also added in a lot of chasing each other around the apartment. Well, most of that was mommy running around and us chasing her but it was tons of fun!
We did hit a bump near the end of the week though. It was pouring one day and raining the other days. But luckily, we only missed one day this week. That's quite an accomplishment, right? Mommy, we think deserve treats for that. *hint hint*
And let us tell you, there's nothing happier than a tired dog. First stop after we get home...water and then it's nap time. What? We have to rest up to prepare for next week's challenge! How did your week go? What were you able to fit in? Were you able to get your mommy or daddy off the couch? No? Well, go do it now. Don't forget to come back and join us on Week 2's Challenge: Play with Your Balls, it goes up on Friday. Why's mommy laughing?! Nevermind, wee have to go, it's treat time!
