Pre Season Fitness

Spurred on by my fellow bloggers I too have started Chi on a pre crufts fitness regime. Not sure we'll be doing the 4.5km daily road walking like Johanna!

Any form of excersice needs to be balanced to produce all round results so with this in mind Chi will embark on a regime that includes swimming x 1 weekly, road walking x 2 - 3 weekly for 10 - 15 mins at a trot, sprint training up the feild with a tennis ball on dry days for about 15 - 20 mins, long walks well 4 - 5 miles, Agility trainign at Gran'ma's or club working on techniques, jumping excersises, massage x 1 full body per week & every morning skin rolling, neck stretching x 2 daily following operaation need to ensure he doesn't stiffen up & plerping at every other available opertunity (lazing around relaxing :)).

Only 6 weeks to go!

The 2 jump sequences that Gran'ma found (see OBay blog) are brilliant and are helping me to really consolodate my arm signals.
Next weekend we will attend a Lesley Olden course analysis training session - more for me than Chi.

Sounds like a great fitness plan. I wish I could be that disciplined. I'm just too lazy!

Everyone is being so good with their fitness regimes. I've been trying to lose weight with no success so not doing as well as everyone else.
