Canicross Training Weekend
We were excited to be working with Nicky who runs a Canicross (the sport of running cross-country attached to your dog...or dogs!) club in the Forest of Dean. Nicky felt she and her club members needed help with their navigation skills, where in particular, Nicky wanted to develop the confidence to be able to plan routes for the club.
Other needs from the group involved work on improving techniques over different terrain, most especially downhill as well as effective ways of improving fitness.
It was a very interesting but rewarding few days working with Nicky and her group. The first day we looked at working on improving their downhill running technique as well as learning how to navigate and plan routes. The weather was roasting so the poor pooches struggled more than the humans on the hill run, but the shaded trail run the next day was perfect.
Thanks to the whole group for being a great bunch and loads of fun.
