|Me and my hubby during Summer Vacation: can you be too popular for your own good?|
Route is differing, frequency is the same
With the kids at home there is no need to run to their school and back. So I don't. Instead I have a different running route during Summer Vacation.
However the number of times I go running has nót changed at all. I still go running 4 times a week, and I ride my bike 2 times a week. I have 1 day of rest. It's the same rythm.
In fact I've even added something to my runs: 10 minutes on my elliptical trainer. My Summer Vacation running route is a little bit shorter than my school run route. So I've gotten in the habit of making up the mile by working out on the elliptical machine. It's a great way to squeeze my crosstraining in, and it helps me to release some stress!
Running: especially when everybody's home
Because to tell you the truth: if there ever was a time I needed my runs to stay sane it's during Summer Vacation. With our house permanently filled with 7 people, 6 of which are noisy and messy, I nééd running more than ever.
Running means alone time, and a time when no one wants something from me.
How does Summer Vacation influence your running habits?
