W5R1 was due today and after my great road run earlier this week I really was straining on the leash to get back out and pound the pavements. (This program is surprisingly addictive!!)
Only one little problem I had with my plan. I currently home school my son and he does not like sports or physical activity at all. But, the increasing optimist in me thought I could get him as excited about running as I am so I brought him a proper pair of running trainers, thrust a scooter at him and dragged him out the door.
Needless to say, it didn't go to well on the child and exercise front. However, I refused to stop running and walking and remained moving the whole time. Even when I had to sit him down I continued to run around him in a large circle and fully completed week 5 run 1. I even managed to cover a distance of 2.59 miles which was a surprise to me as I had to run a bit slower then I would have without the 'company'
Looks like I will have to do treadmill runs until he starts his new school after half term which is a bit of a depressing thought now I've sampled the delights of running outside but I will keep on moving forward. Looking forward to the rest of week 5
Oh, And I'll be getting the kid on the treadmill more often too!
