So for anyone who read my "first post ever" post ... I'm sat here still smiling to myself ... you know I mentioned my 7 year old son said he might think about doing it with me? Well, at 6:56AM this morning, his bedroom light turned on. I could NOT believe it. He had been awake since 6:30AM, waiting for me and got up a little sheepishly and came with me.
Hey, so I couldn't use my funky new amazing bluetooth headphones, but so what - my son was out running with me!! And from about halfway around he insisted on holding my hand the entire rest of the way ... just the sweetest.
We had such a lovely time, and it was over so quickly. We stopped at the playground on our cool down and did a few press-ups, sit-ups, and chin ups.
I've got a question to anyone if I may - after we had cooled down, on the walk back, my son got a stitch in his tummy. What's the best way for that not to happen again? It's a relief it was afterwards and not during but would love to avoid if I can in future.
We did the full 5 minute warm up walk, and I also had him drink a little water before we went out ... so I'm not sure.
Oh, and a bonus - as he was tidying his clothes and getting ready for school, he picked up his running stuff and took it to the spare room "ready for Sunday" - boom!
Yay! So stoked!
