Winter is coming up and I am determined to stay healthy this year. Every year of my life so far I have had a major injury during the winter months. This year it is not going to happen - no pulled muscles, no broken bones, no surgeries, no nothing, nada!
Last Winter Mum got me a treadmill, which I work out on during the really hot and really cold days, when we can't stay outside long. Love it, love it! And I'm still doing my tricks (like beg, big wave, dance, etc.) for core strengthening; my stretching exercises. And I'm doing my hill climbing (Mum even broke down and got me a flexi last weekend at the trial - so that I could go up the hill further without wearing her out.) We don't like flexi's in our house, this is only for special.
But we wanted to go one step further for my conditioning. So Mum ordered me an exercise ball from eBay (great price, by the way), and we got it the other day. Mum needs to work up a plan for me to 'work out' on it, and she's going to reference information from Debbie Gross Saunders' website, talk with our outstanding vet, Doc Bonnie; and maybe even break down and get the 'Get on the Ball' DVD from Clean Run.
Me? I just can't wait to get on the thing. Hurry up and get it inflated, will ya, Mum!
