Pain! Since starting my training for the Bridge to Brisbane in September, I’ve completed my dedicated training route (in addition to my normal exercise routine) six times now, and it’s hard. Very hard. But I am determined, and my time is improving and my legs are trimming (bonus!).
On my weekend runs when my husband is home, I take one of my older children, and they bike ride along side me. I’m too exhausted to chat but the company is nice. I love watching how the things we incorporate into life, impact the children. They are excited about my training, and health, goals and exercise naturally come up in general conversation. It reinforces to me, the importance of leading by example, and weaving teachable moments into everyday life.
It’s always been important for me to continue to be who I am — still a definable person — through parenting, as I find ways of living and sharing life alongside my children. Together.
I’m training hard to raise money for World Vision and I would love your support. Just check out my fundraising page.
