my girls came home from school & got ready for their run tonight. little did they know it was gonna be 20mins they had assumed it was 2x10 mins & I just agreed with them (well it is sort of). both said "there is no way I can do that" which is why I didnt tell them til 15mins before we left the house
I did c25k last year on the treadmill & had iffy belly with worry about the big 20min run & Im sure 12 year old would have got herself in a state.
drove to a long stretch of clifftop & off we went. 13 year old decided she would listen to one direction & me & 12 year old started the walkmans. off we went. slowly but steady. 12 year old found her pace, which was a lot faster than mine or 13 year old's pace. so we watched her run off into the distance. music was much better than I remembered first time round 5min mark came very quickly. 10min came & went & 15min was very well received by us all. last 2 mins felt like ages ~ both my girls said that.
we all have big smiles this is a first for my girls & a first for me as I run on the treadmill.
woohoo. just hope my girls dont find week6, run1 as difficult as I did last year.
