With our group starting soon, Little Diva took it upon herself to start training herself again. She got some motivation from various running magazines and books laying around our home. And, then she got out a notebook and starting writing down pace and mileage goals for herself. Do you think kids act on example? Too funny.
Then, she's seen me do a few short runs on the dreadmill recently and asked if she could try it out herself. She was curious how you set our pace and was amazed that the machine actually kept track of everything you were doing your workout. She hooked up some Kidz Bop tunes and set her pace. With a few walk breaks initially, she was setting a good introductory pace. Then she decided to just go with it and run the last half mile continuously.
