Just completed week 1 run 3 for me, with it being the first run for my 9 year old son.
I think it worked well that I had 2 runs down as I had an idea of what we were doing, as well as the tight chest feeling having eased off from the first run. This made it easier for me to be able to speak (haha!) in order to spur him on.
He is a big reader so spends a lot of time sitting, but he did so well. Managed all of the runs and had a great attitude, even though he said at one point that it felt like he had "swallowed a bee" cause he had a 'stingy stomach'.
We had a great chat during the walks and it was a brilliant way to spend time together.
Not sure whether to go back myself to do 2 more runs so we are at the same point or to carry on into week 2 as well as running with him. I find running on my own with music really nice, and as I said in another post, hopefully beneficial for my mental health.
So I'm not sure if that would be too much for me, I don't want to overdo it. He has after school activities which make it hard to organise regular runs and i like my lone runs (the 2 I have done so far!).
What do you think?
