Meet The Fit Writer’s office dogsbody: Frankie!
He can’t type (he can’t even hold a pen) but that doesn’t stop him being a bit of a superstar in his own right. He’s even appeared in a sport magazine: Women’s Running. I wrote an article about the Wokingham half-marathon and he managed to sneak into the picture! He hasn’t noticed that he’s flashing his…erm…undercarriage. Don’t tell him.
He didn’t bother to read the words. He only wanted to look at his picture.
Frankie’s a “boxer-cross” (your guess is as good as ours) and we got him from a local dog rescue in September 2009 when he was around 9 months old.
If he was a human he’d definitely love training.
He’d favour HIIT and explosive body-weight exercises
And he’d have no trouble getting enough ‘invisible training’.
He says he’s just recovering for his next sprint session walk.
