Instagram of the Day: Henry's 3rd Longest Run with Me!

>> Sunday, August 12, 2012

"Henry's 3rd longest run ever with Dad!!"
(He doesn't look thrilled, but I think he's just thinking "WTF?" because I just stopped to take that photo.)

Running has been going good lately! I had the 1 mile race and the 5K just 2 days apart about 2 weeks ago, and after some rest, the distance work is coming back NICELY without any injury issues. I'm still wearing my "night splint" to bed 95% of the time, but the days I don't wear it, my heel usually feels OK.

Henry and I have been running together a lot. In fact, 100% of my miles since my last race have been with him. That's been nearly 40 miles of running, plus another 4 miles in walks. If you don't count my last 3 races (all of which I ran withOUT Henry - duh), Henry and I have logged my last 60.51 training miles STRAIGHT together! That's a good streak!

(And the most recent non-Henry training run was a BRICK workout, so if you take THAT one out, we've done every training run together since late June, for a total of over 86 miles! I'm loving our runs, little guy!!)

p.s. Just got back from an easy 5 miler with Henry, so add 5 miles to all of those totals. ;)

So what age was Henry when you started running with him?

KJR, I went out with Henry when he was about 6 weeks, but I took it EASY, and ran on smooth paths. Here's a post with some photos of other "tricks" that helped us:

Good luck! :)

Thanks Steve, my son is almost 4 months and today was my second day running with him around calhoun/harriet.

He is the ultimate passenger! Neither of my kids would ever sit for that long. 30 minutes is pretty much their max.

Awesome! Way to train Dad, Henry!

He doesn't look as excited as you are about this! :-) But like most kids I'm sure he will come to appreciate this when he looks back! So have you bought him his first pair of running shoes yet?
