It’s that time of year again – in magazines and on TV the latest diets and exercise guides fight for space with summer holiday promotions, compounding the slight feelings of guilt from over-indulgence during the holiday season.
If you’re like me, you’ll check out the local gyms online and work out exactly how much of what type of exercise you’ll do on what day. All that planning makes you feel pretty good! And then January 2nd rolls around (pun intended) and you remember how boring you found it on the treadmill or stationery bike, and the classes you quite fancied clash with the school run or work. Basically, life takes over.
But, if you have a dog I’m pretty sure (I certainly hope) you have some time in your schedule for Rover’s daily outings. And he’s the most reliable exercise partner you could wish for – or at least the most unlikely to decide that staying in bed is preferable to going for a walk.
