Can't be late to class! Suri Cruise ran - in heels no less - to her gymnastics session in New York today

Suri Cruise set a cracking pace as she hurried her gymnastics class in New York today.

Not even a pair of heels - her favourite, if controversial, accessory - were able to slow her down as she arrived at Chelsea Piers, a sports complex in Manhattan, with her mother Katie Holmes.

Looking much older than her tender age, she skipped along with a handbag on her arm and a doll in the other.

Suri is rumoured to have more than 130 pairs of shoes, many of which have been custom made.

Katie has previously defended her daughter's footwear, saying: 'They are actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids,' Katie said. 'I found them for her and she loves them.'

Suri later slipped off the shoes and enjoyed a gym class inside the centre.

Katie appeared relaxed in a casual shirt and jeans ensemble as she arrived covered with an unusual colour block sweater.

She was earlier spotted working out at a gym near the family's New York base.

Katie has been stepping up her fitness regimen recently and was just yesterday spotted leaving a gym in Brentwood, California after a hard work out.

The star then jetted to the East Coast later in the day and is in New York ready for the star of New York Fashion Week today.

She is expected to soon start filming Responsible Adults, romantic comedy starring Chace Crawford, about a guy who realizes that his crush was his babysitter 15 years ago.

Her husband, Tom Cruise, is meanwhile hard at work on his upcoming movie Rock Of Ages alongside Julianne Hough and Russell Brand.
