Cracking pictures of Dug, a cracking name and it looks like he'll be big if he does grow into those paws We ended up getting a Lhasa Apso, the wife's decision, but she's growing on me especially taking her out for a walk the other day and I managed to do a wee spot of jogging with her and she loved it, currently returning from a PF injury and wasn't too sore. Now just need to get back into the swing of it and do a wee bit more and will be taken her for the nice gentle jogs.
If I get fit again I probably won't be able to do a full marathon until 2013 [Loch Ness] but might attempt another 1/2 next year [Great Scottish Run] as they are the tail end of the year.
Anyway good luck in your training and hopefully you'll get enough votes
@xine267 - Thanks for the welcome . Yes, weims are great, my current place isn't that big but find personally it's the outside space and time you can spend walking/running that really counts for them, they don't tend to use the indoor space much as if you are in they will just be wherever you are, preferably as close to you as possible! Beware collapsing on the sofa with a weim about - I usually end up trapped underneath a pile of sleeping dog! Will try to get a picture of him in the snow for you. Is very snowy in Edinburgh today. Quick 10K round Arthur's seat this morning was stunningly beautiful but paid for forgetting my gloves!!
@PaulGunn - ah, Loch Ness, great choice . I've only done it once but actually pined for it when the date came round on subsequent years when I've been doing other races that day. I was gutted when they moved the Great Edinburgh Run to the same day this year as created a tricky dilemma. Next year I think I'm just going to do Loch Ness even if they clash again though. Is such a nice course and the atmosphere the year I did it was pretty special.
Aw, lhasa apso's are sweet little dogs, I couldn't cope with the grooming myself so hats off to you there.
Hope your return from injury continues to go smoothly, that's fab taking lhasa apso out with you though. We see so many of those little guys unfit and underexercised, I'd love to see more of them out for a happy jog.
Just stumbled onto this forum thread - just in time to say i voted for you as soon as the vote came out - I was so impressed with your dedication to travel all the way from Edinburgh to boot camp and your 12 in 12 for charity - you are also a true plateau candidate with your times and I'm convinced you will benefit sooo much from a good schedule.
Good luck in the final voting.
Richard (in the same group 2 at boot camp)
