Well, don't remember if you remember my past post about how to get fit for agility.
I'm pleased to announce that I have gotten serious. I'm down 5lbs (want to lose a total of 10) and have been dutifully working out. My treadmill has a wonderful "Intervals" pre-set run. It warms you up and then gets you walking fast, then running at a good clip for one minute, back to walking, then running for one minute, it repeats this 8 times in a 25 minute workout. Let me state for the record, I HATE to run/jog. It about kills me, but I do it and tell myself that I CAN run for a minute. It's really a tough little workout for this old lady :death:
I can already feel a difference when I run on the course outside. I'm not nearly as winded... and... I'm sleeping much MUCH better as well.
Hopefully the added endurance will help as I'll be running six classes a day (and most likely back to back dogs, and Ruger and Remington are in the same Gamblers, Snooker class!!)
Good for you...I need to do something too
so glad your version of fartleks are working for you
keep up the great work

That's fantastic! Congratulations. I know how hard it is sometimes (esp in the heat) to run 2 dogs in the same classes at AKC events. Definitely need to be in good aerobic shape esp! Anne
