#3::Keeping up with the kids

If you can’t beat them – change the rules. What is the point of being a parent otherwise?  Multi tasking and remembering all those different aspects of rebuilding my running was proving difficult for a middle aged man, so I have changed the rules and we are skiing instead. All that investment in weight means the dice are loaded in my favour and I can beat the not so little darlings down the French slopes if not running round the Downs of BS8.

What the kids don’t know is that being on holiday and not able to do all those jobs around the house means I have the time to spend an hour each evening doing all the exercises John has given me.


The video from the last post is very useful…..


Although me rolling around on the floor does cause amusement. Luckily nobody has seen me rolling back on the bed vertebrae by vertebrae and then pulling myself up again with arm swings and and twists, with occasional kicks, as that really would give those kids much mirth.

As well as trying to find and exercise all those core muscles that should be keeping my hips steady, I am also trying to remember to head my mothers advice and stand tall, using all my lungs, shoulders back and head balanced on the top of my spine.


Running style changes

SO my last meeting John focussed on my running style. Apparently I’m getting ti all wrong…and it is putting strain on my knee! Who would have thought it?! So I’ve been trying to adapt my style (as well as all the other adaptations…engaging core, stretching glutes etc!). But I’ve been feeling a bit down lately s my knee is still giving me some jip. I think it might be because ti is so cold and as I wear shorts at school perhaps the joint is exposed and doesn’t like it. I’ve got an appointment with John later so I’ll put it to him and see what he thinks….
