I completely forgot that tonight was competition night for madam at Harriers until we were on our way there. Fortunately I had the extra money on me to pay, but that was more by luck than judgement. Last week I knew this was on but between then and now it completely slipped my mind, that’s the trouble with marathon training it takes over your life and makes you a useless disorganised mother!
We checked the schedule for what she could enter as a U13 girl. She wanted to do the 600m but this was not on for another one and a half hours, so useless disorganised mother vetoed this as I did not fancy being a frozen uselss disorganised mother. She settled on 60m hurdles, 75m hurdles and 60m sprint. I was very impressed with the way she lept over the hurdles having never seem her do this before. Madam did well considering she is just 11 and the other girls looked like they were older and more experienced. She enjoyed herself and it certainly gave her a taste of what to do next month, providing of course her useless disorganised mother remembers!
I am off to see when I am now going to fit in the run that I missed doing tonight, but I have just read an article on twice a day training which might be something I consider doing this week!
