I went for my 3 miler today and took my 6 year old on his bike. I wondered if he'd be able to keep my pace for 3 miles...um, yes. He was great for my pace! Although I don't feel like it showed up on my garmin! I was running at a 9:30 pace alot of the time (GREAT time for me), but he was all over the road! On my heels, getting too far ahead, I was afraid he would hit the soccer spectators...blah blah blah. He chatted at me the whole 3 miles, and he packed a "lunch" that he insisted we stop halfway so he could eat. (It was raisins, string cheese and water). So, my average pace was slower on the clock, but I really enjoyed him coming with me, and he was SO proud of himself.
In other randomness, I saw this video today on another blogger's page. It totally fit me this week, looking for excuses to stay in my bed on Thursday. I totally have these thoughts almost every time I get ready to run, and while I'm running. A cool short video.
I should help my hubby get my kiddos ready for bed...I can hear them screaming. What a guy!
