My daughter after watching her Dad run enough is keen to give it a go. Given I'm not a runner either (I can walk at about 15 min per mile for an hour, also did the Thames path 50k walking last year after a lot of training), we have started a C25k with the aim of running a local parkrun gently from the back in perhaps 2 or 3 months.
Looking at the age gradings, do they start at 10 or is that just the grade for anyone under 10?
We're not out to break records, just something she can enjoy and do with Dad, and me I'm thinking to take her out just twice a week rather than the three I'm doing, just to keep it gentle on her little legs.
That said I remember doing a 3 mile fun run and an 8 mile fun run when I was about 10 on no training whatsoever...
