I was dreading the Spring school holidays as, with a 10K race coming up in the second week, I would need to somehow keep the training up whilst having the kids at home full-time.
I was wracking my brains for a solution – even going as far as going to the local gym to get a membership form as they have a crèche. However, having seen the crèche I realized quickly that my kids are beyond crèche age. Therefore, there was only one logical solution: I had to take them along.
So, for the last two weeks, they have been getting on their bikes in the morning whist I run along behind. I am absolutely amazed at how well it worked. Let’s hope it can continue in the 6 week summer holidays when I will be training for my first sprint triathlon!
