Does anyone else take part in this amazing sport? I love it! Most people think its only for big dogs and very fit people. But it's actually extremely accessible! I hated running up until around January last year when I started to lose a little weight and felt better about running. I started just in the gym and then saw canicross on TV. We had rescued a very cute Parson Jack Russell Terrier (pics to follow) around October 2016. I had never thought I could do it and be good at it. Of course, trail running is completely different to road running - terrain is tricky and then adding an excitable little dog as well. I don't fit the usual category for canicross - my dog is small and I am not particularly fast....however, since my last competition last year in October, I have managed to take around 3 minutes off my time. However, I took part in two duathlons in 2017...it was alot of fun and definitely gave me some focus as to what I need to work on etc. Just a brief background on me...my life up till February 2017 wasn't the healthiest or most active. I was in bad place just with my work, friends, partners etc. But a change of job into a leisure centre, surrounded by very supportive and encouraging people meant that I now love exercise and it's a big part of my life. I have had a couple of back quibbles and twisted the same left ankle twice while doing canicross - but this has just made me realise I need to look after my body more as well as work it - all these things happen for a reason right?! I know I have gone off topic a little, so I will swing back to canicross - even if you are not that fit or you don't think your dog will like it - it's always worth a try - its surprising that once dogs in a pack start running, they will soon love it!
