It was one of my new year's resolutions to run a 5km race in the spring and along the way Zack could be my running buddy. I have a proper jogging leash and everything and thought it would be another great thing we can do together. However, because of this god awful weather and icy paths I have ended up at the gym doing my training. Last night I had my first (what I call) my "Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout Breakdown". I struggled for the 30 minutes running and just broke down crying - thinking all negative thoughts - I can't do it, I can't do it. If anyone knows me I am overweight and built like a brick so it is quite the challenge for me to run. My husband is great support as he runs quite a bit and when I got home last night and saw Zack's little face I just dreamt of the day when him and I can jog along together. I know Zack would run forever!!!
One of the reasons I got Zack was that being a terrier he would need lots of exercise and it would keep me moving, but I need to up my anty too. What better motivation than to have a little scruffy terrier at your feet wanting to go out and "have some fun". I just hope this weather improves so we can get out together and I can put Zack's jogging leash to work.
