Around 8pm we got our tennis shoes on and was ready to head out the door and Miss H decides she wants to ride her bike and I say to myself then well ok then I guess I might run and take advantage of it. We started out walking and then we got to the stop sign at the end of the street and Miss H turns me and says
"Ok Mom, you have to run where ever I decide to go ok?"
"Alright girlfriend, you got a deal!" I tell her.
She led me down the street and around a condo community and then back down the street again and then back home. It was a perfect run! I felt great. There were a few times where my mind tried to get the best of me but I just didn't let myself think about the distance and just ran. I really have an issue when I start to think about how far I've ran or how far I have to go yet and it plays a total mind game with me and makes me think that I can't go any further or my run will suddenly get harder. But I kept that in check and just focused on what I was doing and that was following Miss H around the neighborhood.
I love so much that I am able to do this with her. She likes it better when I run while she rides her bike because I can keep up with her better then when I used to walk and she rode her bike. She thought it was hilarious she was THE COACH for the night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We are out exercising together, spending time together just the two of us, I'm setting a good example for her and we are outside rather than inside. Can't really get much better than that!
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
