Holiday running motivation

Holiday  running motivation

Just finishing a lively week in the sunshine with my wife kids and future son in law. Beth (23) is running the Tarpley 10 (that's 10 miles!) with me at the end of Feb which will be our longest run to date. We've been out running along the beach path from San Agustin to maspolamas a few times and today we had to complete our longest run so far of 50 minutes, we'll I was having such a good run I didn't tell Beth when we passed 50, she asked when we were at 55mins and 7.5km so we agreed let's go for the 8km. What a great morning run on our last day of holiday. We weren't meant to do 8km until next Sunday. One thing I've found out in the hotel gym yesterday (yes I know.. Gym.. Holiday.. Wth) is that my right quad is half the strength of my left so I need to do leg extentions individually, it's handy having my son in law here as he's a strength and conditioning coach, I also partook in a massage at the spa which was agony! I asked her to concentrate on my legs.. She used a flipping pastry roller! Blooming man hater!

Anyway from not being able to run 100m a year ago I'm definately feeling the joy of running, will be applying for my 10k badge soon. Paul
