How to get your kid(s) to walk

Yesterday was the first day back at school. Our 5 year old is starting preschool while our 3 year old is back at the Montessori daycare. Our daily school walk has just increased by a whopping 600m. 1km to Montessori, a retour of 1,1km to the school and 500m back home = 2,6km. And the same again in the afternoon, altogether totalling 5,2km. Not bad.

For the kids its only a daily 2,6km of course but the 5 year old clocks most of those in one bout.

When our now 5 year old son started to walk, I proudly bought him his first pair of outside shoes. It was a fairly sturdy sneaker kind of shoe. A shoe pretty much like this one, just much smaller and not as pink:

For over a year now I’ve been studying with the Restorative Exericse Institute. Before I decided to go for the Whole Body Alignment course this Spring, I took the NoMoreKegels course which is all about pelvic floor health. I learned about the effect of our footwear and posture on the alignment of the pelvis and how this in turn effects the pelvic floor muscles. I also learned specific exercises to restore pelvic floor function. And one of the most fundamental of those restorative exercises is the calf stretch.
