At the tri club sessions we keep it all very short and sharp, technique and skills based games. Once they get to TS2 then we may start moving it out but TS1 they'll run 1k-1.2k maximum so why get them running longer distance. WE will do maybe 100m reps in the main set workign on form and good recovery between or just use the long jump run ups. We play a lot of games, bulldog, dominoes (giant dominoes but they run to the end of the long jump pit to place and run back) stuck in the mud. They do enjoy running the stadium steps so we do variations of that with hopping, bounding, 2 steps at a time. Closest we do to traditional training was last week we did pacing with the TS2/TS3 group (11 - 14) and did 4*400m gradually increasing pace.

At my sons school year 3 + do a 2k run in games every week during winter and spring terms.

I don't know if you watched Killing Eve (we binge watched the lot), but there's a great quote from the Russian handler about his daughter:

"she's amazing, but so annoying!" Very Happy

I haven't seen it but i know the feeling. When I say to people at work about, they look at me like I have two heads. Apparently we're meant to fawn about like our kids are angels riding unicorns $hitt1ng fairy dust 24/7.

That's not me! Although sometimes, I am amazed how much fun she can be (but only sometimes Very Happy )

Haha - my colleagues definitely don't expect this from me after some of my rants!! Very Happy Very Happy

My toddler recently being described as going 'full d!ck mode' a few weeks after the arrival of her new baby sister. And that's the polite version of the story! haha

the question is, is there a greater or lesser benefit doing this than some interactive and competitive sport...

Surely it's all about enjoyment and that will depend on the individual. I know my son literally would not 'stay the course' if asked to run or walk around a 2K track. He'd gladly run randomly around a field, chase a ball or climb over random obstacles, but he would actively rebel against running a prescribed route at a prescribed time. So much as I'd love to take him to a PR or junior PR, at the moment it would just be counter productive.

My daughter was born only 17 minutes after my son and she definitely has this syndrome.

Although she is a smart, friendly, polite kid, she can be a little prick at times! Openly laughing in my face when being told off is the one thing that sets me off Evil or Very Mad
Her brother on the other hand is an angel 99% of the time.

I was told off by a lady at work for not paying attention to someone's baby when she brought it in. My response was "I don't even like my kids, why would I want to see anyone elses". Let's just say she didn't see the funny side Laughing


They are both loving half term. She is at a dance & performing arts school all week and he is at a sports camp playing football, dodgeball, cricket and other sports.
