What a great week I had with Kayle my, soon to be 5 years old, daughter. Kayle's school is on Spring Break this week so while Riley's school doesn't go until next week it was all about fun for Kayle and I. I spent Mon/Tues on the treadmill while I set her up with some movies. Then, on Wed. after 10:00 on the mill I got off and looked around the garage for the B.O.B. jogging stroller we used to have. I was certain we had passed that on to some friends a few years ago, but couldn't help to take a look. I was right, no stroller, but there was this one that has 4" plastic wheels that Kayle uses to put a few stuffed animals in and take for walks. I took it for a little test spin and it seemed ok withOUT my 40lb daughter in it so I asked her if she wanted to try it out. The stroller was fine and I had one the most enjoyable runs I've ever had. The best part of all is that Thur/Fri Kayle was out in the driveway in the stroller ready to go! Pushing our kids in strollers might be the best running partners we could ever ask for - the conversation, the singing, the questions - I completely forget I was pushing a crickity, old stroller with an alignment problem.
As for running, this was kind of an "easy" week, perhaps one that I needed as I get to really start ramping it up. This was also a bit of an experimental week figuring out where I'm as far as speed goes. Next week both kids will be at the Grandparents and I'm ready to make the most of the extra time I'll have for training.
Also, last summer I did 150,000' in 100 days. On my 100th day of 2011 I went over 200,000'.
