This week has been a busy week for all things other than running 😦 I only actually managed to get out for three short runs this week.
I’m seeing this as good thing though, best that it happens now before my training plan kicks in in a couple of weeks. It has highlighted to me though how easy it can be to fall out of the routine. I’ve actually been doing lots of fun things but at the same time, I’ve been dying to go for a run!
One of the things I finally did get round to this week was taking my six year old niece out for a run. She did the Santa Dash with me in my local town and ever since then she’s been dying to join me for a run. So after a quick trip to Sport’s Direct, I picked her up some cute little running gear from Karrimor and some little Adidas runners 🙂
She absolutely loved running with me! I didn’t want to take her too far, I’d read about how you should be careful with too much running for growing bones but she just didn’t want to stop! She managed 2 miles and even had a little sprint finish at the end. She is already bugging me to take her out again!
Focus is back on this week, the plan is two short runs, stamina training and a long run this weekend all being well. My training plan start date is fast approaching and I’m actually getting really excited!
2015 mileage to date: 45.08
