My daughter is 10. She asks to train every single day but , as a runner myself , I am very conscious of her damaging her self at such a young age. We keep it 2 or 3 times a week . I let her do one park run , which she did in 23mins very comfortably, and she begs me each week to let her do it again (as she watches me zip by !!).
She races pretty regularly over 1m XC and does very well , loves getting covered in mud and loves competition.
She has pictures of Paula Radcliffe and Mo all over her walls and I stood for 2 hours this week in the rain to get Mo's autobiography signed as a Christmas present for her.
Nothing better than both of us running round the orchards with the dog !
Hi everyone....I currently work and run along the Thames close to Tower Bridge. My company is moving to the Wharf in March and I wondered if anyone knew of any routes or loops or running groups over there ? I usually nip out for 40-60mins when I can or do some faster reps . Any feedback most welcomed as I will be in the late stages of London Mararthon training...many thx
