I want to keep up my training this year, during the school holidays, as in previous years I virtually give up running whilst kids are around, then have to start all over again come September! I also now have a dog who needs daily walking, so even more complicated this year.
I did take the kids + dog to a local park after school last week. There's a playground right in the middle of the park and it takes about 7 minutes to run round the main field. I ended up doing one lap with the dog [he's only 6 months old so won't go much further than that while he's young]; one circuit with my 6 year old, and 2 circuits on my own, while the older 2 boys took it in turns to walk the dog around. I figured that if there was any 'crisis', I could easily get back to the playground as it's effectively the centre of a circular route.
I'd like to get the boysinto running, so hopefully one of them will decide to do some circuits with me if I can get out regularly to the park?!
Any other ideas would be very welcome!
