Yippee! My 2 week holiday has started! Hoping to get some running in. First short run planned for tomorrow with one or two sons. And should be able to run while they are swimming during the two weeks.
Hubby and I are going to Spain for 4 days on Thursday. m-i-l and s-i-l are looking after the kids. It's our first time away alone (apart from the Istanbul 15K races) since the kids were born. Sort of excited but already had one bad dream about the kids being alone.
Kids will be really busy though. Daughter has 5 days double training each week, and a hard single session each Saturday plus three gym sessions each week. Hardly a holiday but she is looking forward to it???? Boys have training too but a lot less.... and of course they have lots of homework eg Mikail (the 7 year old) has two books to read, 12 pages of English, a power point to prepare, a book report, comprehension questions and 4 pages of maths problems??? Some private schools are actually working for an extra week - how crazy is that? Makes me a little bit angry actually and I can see it becoming like China...
MC - massive congrats to your son for his distinction! It was worth the wait! Elif and I were really pleased too although she just got a pass. She didn't do enough practice and it was touch and go whether she would pass at all as one piece was really ropey and slow!
Franny - track sessions sound great. Well done!
AF - glad to hear your leg's better.
Off to bed. Nighty night!
