I am assuming those figures assume that as a parent you fully fund university exploits as well?
All I know is that at the moment I pay close to £1000 month on childcare alone. This year, as my eldest has started school, my summer holiday flights are £300 more expensive as we have to go in half term.
We also had the stage of 'Daddy, i dont like you', when he was about 3. I initially got slightly upset by it but now i just brush it off with a 'oh well thats bad news isn't' type comment.
No snow down here. Easy 6 miles yesterday, planning a 12-13 miler tonight then rest tomorrow. We are off to a hotel tomorrow for a spa type day with dinner and overnight stay. Dropping kids off at 10.30am then i have 26 hours to myself!
I am looking set for a 40 plus week this week. Ive already done my 2 x training sessions (spin and pump) and am on 23 with 13 planned for tonight. I then have rest day tomorrow with a plannd mara pace session sunday, probably 8 with 4 at mp.
Andrew- Glad to hear you went with the club, should do you a lot of good.
Dr Dan- Good l;uck sunday. Do you ahve a target time?
I've been recovering last few days. Saturday left my legs quite tired. Did a couple of slow short runs sunday- Tuesday then did a hill session today. Just 3 x 8 minutes up and down one hill. Was fairly blustery.
Planning a long run Friday night and Mara pace run Sunday which will then complete my 4th successive week of 40 miles with x2 quality sessions. One more week then will have a cut back week.
I have my injection on Friday 13th and its recommended you rest for a few days after it to help it work. I'm off up to Edinburgh the following morning for the rugby so had always planned downtime that weekend and into new week.
Sounds like a pretty tough session, CB. How many miles you hitting per week? I'm starting to build Lt runs from Feb.
