So I finally decided to test out the dodgy tendon and start the C25K with my daughter so she is ready for the race for life. We did 2 rounds of 'run for 60 seconds/walk for 90 seconds' before she got bored and just kept running! 20 minutes later she'd got so far ahead of me over a hill that I had to ring her to run back towards me!
So much for a slow and easy return to running!
On the positive side I managed the run with no twinges although it was slow and steady with very little distance covered.
My question is do I force her to follow the week 1/2 programme or allow her to follow her body's ability to run? At the end she was sweaty (as expected) but still chased her brother around the park on the way home so had energy to spare.
