First ever holiday run πŸ˜€

First ever holiday run πŸ˜€

Since becoming a runner I've had the desire to do a holiday run. Other than the Bristol 10k all of my running has been very local to where I live.

So I brought my running gear to our holiday here in Anglesey, confident I'd be able to squeeze one in - and I just did! I'm gutted though that While I remembered my Garmin, I forgot to ensure she was fully charged and bring the charger - doh! But luckily I still had mapmyrun on my phone so used that instead. Not the longest run but it was considerably hillier than I usually do.

Any of you newbies out there wondering how far the C25k programme can take you - it can take you to wherever you want it to - just stick with it and then embrace and enjoy running - it's fantastic.

  • Well done. The best run I ever did was my first 10k along the promenade/beach path at lanzarote. I bet this felt just as good to you.

  • Ooo bet that was hot.. Rather cooler here this morning πŸ˜€

  • Fantastic!! What a beautiful place to run I love Anglesea!! Hills are tricky, I need to face hills this weekend!! That is a pain in the bottom about the garmin, for me it's my iPod that the battery is always dead.

    Have a fab holiday I know you will. A friend recently went to Anglesey on a residential and did some cool things!!

    Happy holiday running!!

  • It's fab here - we're doing that mile long zip slide over a quarry tomorrow.. Scary stuff 😰

  • thats brilliant! well done, its nice to get a holiday run in! and to see it mapped out even better! bet it was pretty too :)

  • Well done Angel! Running on Anglesey, how lovely. It's a fab place to get your running shoes on. I stayed in Beaumaris when I was there last. What a fab spot.

    I hope you have a fab holiday. So glad you could get some running in.

  • We're off to Beaumaris on Friday - looking forward to a boat trip. Really hopeful to see some puffins ☺.

    And good to see you're back out on the road πŸƒ xx

  • We stayed at the pub, The Bull I think it was called. Something like that, near the castle. There is a wonderful little restaurant over the butchers shop over the road. Affordable but fine dining using dad's meats. Lush! I had a wonder around the allotments while I was there and it must have one of the best views from a plot anywhere I've seen. Just wonderful

    Have fun!
