I feel awful....week 7 run 3 and I have been working at home today psyching myself up for this....My son Leon ( 11) has been doing the last 3 runs with me as he is now joining the programme ( he is v fit...football, cycling etc etc). Tonight didn't go so well.....we started our route on an enormous hill and he was sprinting, then he just disappeared. I kept looking back and he was a long way off. I had already told him that I have to keep going....can't talk, can't do anything other than run!!!!!
Anyway, I finished ( last 5 minutes I was back on the swearing), and I had to walk back to find him. He looked awful and said he felt so sick. I felt terrible as I realise its my fault as I gave him sausages, potato waffles and spaghetti hoops for tea only about an hour and a half before, I thought that was long enough but clearly it wasn't. Poor lad, hubby and 8 year old came and rescued us, and we decided we would do the run again on Friday, no tea till after, and we would do our original run ( no enormous hill!). Does anyone now what the suggested gap is for eating? For me, I make sure my tum is empty as it makes me feel slightly lighter!!! Hubby now cooking me pasta putanesca, lucky me, although I am a bad mummy ;(
