I agree with TLOVESC1125. I take my boys to the high school track. There I can walk/jog the track while they play soccer or football. I am not doing hills yet, so the track works for me.

“One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”

I had this problem too so I started making them bring their bikes or scooters and it was easier for them to keep up. I live in a pretty small town and we just avoid any busy streets. I also found that worked well for my 10 year old son was to walk the track at the High school this way he could bring a friend and a football and run around the football field while I was getting my walk in. The track did not add the hills I was use to on my own so I would run, jog or walk up the bleachers which are pretty large. Hope this helps you out.

I am worried, now that the kids are going to be off school, I will not be able to fit in all the exercise and me-time in the mornings as usual. I had been going for swift walks with the dog every day while the kids are in school. They are not interested in doing the same with me, at least not at my pace, and I am worried that I will not be able to get the same level of exercise in as usual.

Does anyone have suggestions, or experience in dealing with this problem?
This is my first Spark Summer at Home with Kids, and I thought that some of you might have some good ideas in how to deal with a similar change of routine?

My kids are 5, 8 and 10.
