90% Chance of rain

90% Chance of rain that is what the forecast said we when we decided to head out for our run yesterday.  I had the kids with me, Ms. J in the stroller and Ms. E was going to ride her bike. The bike that she is afraid of. In August of 2012 she fell off her bike and broker her arm. Since, then every time we suggest she gets on her bike she cries. Training wheels still on, but we need to get confidence back before we take those off or get a bigger bike.

We went to a very flat trail and road slowly, with lots of stops and reassurance. By the end of the time it was hard for me to keep up. That is my goal though, to get her riding so in the summer she can ride while I run. We did 2 miles before it started to pour down rain.

Last week (workouts completed in bold)

Monday: 2.5 mile run
Tuesday: Burn Circuit

Wednesday: Burn Intervals & Ab Burner / 2 mile run
Thursday: Burn Circuit
Friday: Burn it Off & Recharge
Saturday: 3.5 mile run
Sunday: Burn Circuit  - 2 mile run instead

Getting better, Saturday I was lazy. I should have got the workout done, but I didn't. I figured I could push it to Sunday but then I only was able to get 2 miles in because of the rain. So is life, each week small improvements.

This weeks plan:
Monday: 2.5 Mile Run
Tuesday: Burn Circuit  - 1
Wednesday: Burn Intervals & Ab Burner / 2 mile run
Thursday: Burn Circuit - 2
Friday: 3.5 mile run
Saturday: Rest (I have a big event planned for my Posh business, I will be on my feet all day)
Sunday: Burn Circuit- 3

I hope you had a great weekend. Any tips or tricks for helping a kiddo with their fear of riding a bike?

Happy Monday!
