I am sure we are not alone in attempting to stave off increasing waist lines while conforming to Government Guidelines.
Its fair to say we as a family of three (four) if you count our dog Tetley, have found joy in striding out two or three times a week.
One of our routes takes us down and through the docks at Ipswich past Dance East & left over Stoke bridge, along Wherestead Road to the end roundabout where we turn for home at ski slope then back along, through the docks to the foot of Landseer Road & home 9km or 73 – 75 minutes.
Kath does all of the running, while Freya & I are pace setters.
Tetley is our four & half year old Hungarian Viszler, & Kath says all of the hills he is a great boost with his unwavering pace,which is a true God send.
I’d like to think we are an active family but these times we are in, pushes us to think outside the box , as far as Fitness of body & Mind goes. Like so many people, following a jog, bike ride or walk we certainly feel refreshed invigorated and capable of dealing with life, especially given Freyas ‘home Schooling’ duties.
To be fair it’s been several weeks in existence and a routine and system is in place which works well. The only issue I foresee is my ability to understand the three elements of “Transformation” Key Stage 2 & convey this to Freya, with a degree of confidence, fun, enthusiasm, & accuracy without my frustration levels peaking.
We have also created a mini Circuit around our patio, along with gym area for kick boxing, (A discipline Freya took up August last year), we all have skipping ropes, but the less said about that the better.
Stay safe…Kev & Family
