Merry Christmas Runners

Merry Christmas to all you lovely people, hope you all have a great time! Are any of you going to fit a run in? Finished the first of my 2 parkruns for this weekend, Portsmouth Lakeside today, tomorrow I'm off to run the Southsea parkrun, what some people do to get out of peeling the spuds eh! πŸ˜† Probably get lumbered for the washing up though as punishment for slipping out early, ha ha! πŸ˜† My time for today was 26:20 probably be a little slower tomorrow with the alcohol sloshing about in my belly and a thumping head but what a way to work up an appetite! Happy running all! 😊

    I am not Parkrunning tomorrow. I shall be resting my legs as I ran today. I will be cooking breakfast - scrambled eggs, smoked salmon on toast, followed by present unwrapping, when I hope Santa has delivered some running gear

    I don't do booze but I shall be making some Bucks Fizz to go with breakfast (but not mine. I shall have my usual cuppa tea)

    Have a lovely Christmas peeps!
