On my run this morning I was passed by a set of parents shuttling their kids to school.
Of course they weren’t quite catching air. But I thought how brilliant!
Mom had daughter on hers and Dad had the son on his. Very boy/girl PC.
Each parent was in control with the kid tucked in front safe and sound.
This served many purposes…they avoided traffic, got some fresh air and moved faster than if they walked. Much faster because when they hit a hill and got off to walk the little boy started doing the exploratory/meandering walk kids do. Dad kept having to drop back and redirect him.
I’ve actually seen the mom with one kid do this before. She takes them school, drops them off and then scoots back home.
Today was cute because it was the whole darn family!
My run was S.L.O.W. Actually, it was probably kind of normal time-wise but my legs felt like lead. Perhaps it was leftover stuff from my sprint work Friday night.
Now Voyager is the same – we’re enjoying our walks and I’m practicing my yoga in the saddle. It’s pretty effective!
I’m still waffling on which races to do and whether or not to join the track workout group (bottom line is I’m a big fat chicken) and/or get some sort of coaching help and which Garmin to buy (though I have it down to 2 thanks to Charisa) and and and…
