Just wanted to say hello to all you lovely folk on here who I have really been missing whilst entangled in the cut and thrust of a primary school Christmas!
What with all the Nativity Productions, Christmas dinners, panto trips, Christmas fayres, concerts and Carol services and the general fever pitch level of excitement I haven't run much in the last month and stress levels, migraines and my general mood have definitely suffered as a result!
So it was great to get out this morning for a gentle 5k and, inspired by FlickM3 and her impressive marcothon, I've decided to have a go at a little running streak of my own and run every day of my 16 days holiday.
I am planning to alternate my usual pattern of three runs a week (5ishk, short intervals session, longer run 8k+) with short joggettes of no more than 3k.
Think this will benefit me physically and moreover mentally and I always love a bit of a challenge.
And because I know you all care - don't worry I'll go steady (have lots of lovely leisurely audio books and radio stuff I've missed lined up) and listen to my body (mainly my knees!) - have no desire to break myself, but right now I'm just relishing the prospect of getting out there and in the daylight too!
Happy Christmas running everyone! 🏃♀️🎄☃️
