Any advice from parents about getting children into running. My daughter really wants to come out running with me but I think she is too young for anything that structured so we just play a little chase in the park which she loves. She's three and a half and ParkRun says they can join you running at 4 but I'm still concerned this is a bit young.
After last weeks ParkRun I am really reluctant to do anything more after watching parents forcing their small children to run, almost in tears in a couple of cases, around our local park. I might take her for a little jog around the block or something but don't want her to end up hating exercise like I have for the last 30 years.
Anyone have any experiences they can share or advice that might be helpful. Was thinking I could maybe get her started with just doing the first few weeks of c25k with her so not too much running n lots of walking which is great exercise though does mean I might not get much running in for a while.
Thanks guys I'd really appreciate some other people's thoughts on this.
