That's right running with your dog is a great way to get in shape, and you and your little guy will have a 'dog' of a good time as well! The news and Internet abound with the benefits of cardiovascular exercise, like running. You and your dog will look better, you will feel better, and it will increase your circulation, help lower your cholesterol, and a host of other health-related benefits.
So grab your running shoes, get a good leash for your dog and hit the pavement! It's time to go running!
Start Slow and Set Goals…
The first thing to remember is to start slowly. Rome was not built in a day, and neither should you and your dog go out running the same distance that you used to run when you played sports in high school. Start slow and respect your limits. Try a short run along the beach, a park trail, or some other type of scenic vista. Look for signs of fatigue in your animal, and when the both of you are tired—stop.
Try running a little bit every day, either before or after work, keep it consistent. Gradually increase your distance until you start seeing the pounds drop away, and you and your dog are looking sharp, sexy, and in primo shape!
