generally it is age and child dependent, but it's a fact that children are geared far more towards aerobic activity rather than anaerobic. That said anything that enhances their co-ordination, speed and strength will stand them in good stead as they get older. I coach U11s at our club, and the common theme from those that seem more tired towards the end are the ones that have had an afternoon of PE or played football/netball. My youngest (now 13) used to be able to swim for 2 hours, land train (gym) for an hour and then go run the cross country, but now she chooses one or the other, so I'd suggest it means getting/training smarter as you get older.
A few of you picked up on the veiled reference to cake yesterday, which indeed coincided with the date of my birth, some 40- mumble, mumble years ago (clue England won a football cup) In the end I settled for sticky toffee pudding. After all I don't know how long I'll still have my own teeth and be able to handle toffee...
Morning Lyric - yes Good sessions going on, Tine, Don and Blisters with the rubber ring I too took in some hills at the club session, 12x450m each loop containing 3xshort hill bursts (aka the bank behind the rugby posts). It seems another year older hasn't slowed me down just yet. what - 5 or 6 easy why - recovery last rest - 11 days last hard - yesterday
Depends if you have a spouse/partner and /or children.
We choose our family holidays on where we all want to go, although I always take running kit with me, it's a great way to explore. Picking a holiday for the sole purpose of running is OK if you have a like minded partner, or if you holiday away from the family. Dragging them along so you can run seems (to me) very selfish.
