Hi, I'm a newbie and only started running in January to accompany my 7yr old daughter who wants to run.
We've been working up pretty slow but steady. I am now running just over 4 miles. My daughter is entering a race on 3rd May for 1.5km. But she wants to run further.
The other day she came out with me plus my 6 yr old. We all ran 1.5km together (about 11 mins) and then we walked back and dropped my younger daughter off at home. The two of us continued on. Ran up a hill and around the route I usually take. After 22 mins I eased into a walk for 5 mins, then we jogged another 2 mins home. We run at pretty much the same pace and although i didn't measure exactly I guessing that she probably did a total of 3 miles that day.
Is that too much? She wants to do more. Should I just let her build up slow? Or put a limit on it. She a very healthy, extremely skinny girl who loves to run!
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
