Yeah count me in! I intend doing Christmas Day too RFC. Race ya!

Just checked myasics plan and I'm due an 8k build-up run. That'll do nicely. Worth a mince pie that is!

Definitely already decided to repeat my early Christmas morning run around Draycote Water. Enjoyed it so much last year :)

Reply

Ooh, I'll think of you doing that.

Reply

honestly, it's lovely, I'm really looking forward to it :)

Reply

I'm due to graduate Christmas Day so yes count me in.

Hopefully I will deserve that glass of fizz as presents are opened.

Also hope Father Christmas thinks I've been good this year :)

Reply

I'm still plodding through the programme but I'll be running w7r2 on Christmas Eve :) Shame I can't tempt anyone in my family to join me. Only other runner in my family is my niece and she's in Australia!

Reply

Thanks RFC , yup Im in !

I am going for Christmas Eve xxx

Reply

Yes, I'll try to get out there. Probably lumber out on Boxing Day!

Reply

Was hoping to do a park run on boxing day, but now have a sore foot, so it will depend on how things are in a week's time.

Reply

I'm up for it. Not sure which day I will run---This is my first xmas as a runner--I can't believe it :) I wont be able to post till after though. Happy Christmas everyone.

Reply

Yes, hope to do something xmas day

Reply

I'm in! Xmas Eve I should think. :-)

Reply

All and Boz too, plus hopefully Paul if he gets off his butt! Not sure what day yet!! 😊one of the three!

Reply

I'm in planning 2 days so might make it Christmas Eve and Boxing Day ( Probably Park Run for that one ) But I really want to run on Christmas Day, oh no how will I choose ;)

Reply

Definitely up for one. Probably Christmas or Boxing Day - might be both, depending how generous Santa is with things that need testing out - running related ones and cake & alcohol 😀

Reply

Hope you'll soon be back out there Dags!! Take care petal x

Reply

Depending on how frosty it is (don't want to slip and fall over) I might run Christmas Eve whilst my father and husband are at church - maybe Boxing Day, too.

Reply

At least one of those for me. Great idea RFC.

Reply

I'm due to graduate tomorrow. Definitely planning to run on Christmas Eve, and hopefully Boxing Day, too. My children have banned me from running on Christmas Day!

Reply

I'm in, I love running on Christmas Day and I will be out Boxing Day too and New Year's Day.... I love running around Christmas so I can eat more and it just feels so good to be outside and not at work!!!!

Reply

Count me in. I am planning a run along South Shields beach on Christmas morning. Good opportunity to clear my head before the Christmas mayhem begins.

Reply

Oooh, how lovely. Discovered how beautiful that beach is this Summer when we had to schlep our son a long way to find an educational psychologist to assess and report on him. Thought then how glorious it would be to run on. Enjoy!

Reply

Yes I'd like to,join in - probably early Christmas Eve before the mince pie fest x ⛄️

Reply

Yes, please count me in! I've run on Christmas Day and New Year's Day since I started running, which must mean that the weather has been kind for the last three years - fingers crossed again! Oh, and last year I ran on NYD in my skeleton tights, and they nearly fell down - oops! :D

Happy running, everyone!

Oh yes! I'm planning on running through the city centre on the 25th, a rare chance to run without having to dodge millions of tourists!

Reply

Hope to be doing park run with my family on Boxing Day. Tho it will be a very slow run aka walk as a. I'm injured and b. It'll be a struggle to get my son to walk fast that far let alone run - he has severe learning difficulties/ASD and a VERY short attention span !! But I really want us to do it as a family.

So don't think it will count as a 'run' but we will be out there 😀

Reply

Yes count me in , planning a fun run on Boxing day for charity, 4 miles I think :)

Reply

Count me in, please. Will be running on Boxing Day at parkrun, but I'm thinking of sneaking an extra run in on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

Reply

I'm IN.. 12/24 Christmas Eve,,, Week 6, Day 2 (modified time extension). 12/26 Day After Christmas Week 7, Day 1. This will be my "On Location" training time. I will be running the course for my first 5 K.

This is kinda intimidating. But Laura will be with me, I'll be OK. :)

Reply

I am going to give it a go - will be a challenge to fit it in so I am going to try to take the first opportunity.

Reply

I'm in for the 26th because that is an extra celebration for me. On Boxing Day two years ago I decided to get out of bed and run outside for the first time after graduating. I've been outside since!

Reply

Hello, yes please, I'd like to take part! I'm due to run on the 24th and the 26th according to the schedule, so I'll post the best 1 of 2 ;-).

Reply

Yes count me in. I will run either Christmas eve or Boxing day

Reply

From my IC I will definitely do the most virtual of all ... :) I will run in my own imagination among snowy peaks or maybe along infinite beaches, not sure yet what I'll choose - oh and I will be with every single one of you during your run! :) Happy Solstice and Christmas everyone!!

I am in - either the last day of Week 6 or first of Week 7.

Reply

Christmas Eve for me too, and maybe Boxing Day but not committing to that one :D

Reply

I'm in. Christmas Eve and Christmas day for me.

Reply

Sign me up for my first 5k run on Christmas morning. Did a trial today to see if the body is up to it and bring it on! :-D

Reply

Hoping to head out Christmas Eve... ( although I may be too excited...only one more sleep 'til Christmas :) )

Count me in!

Reply

Hi RFC, I hope to do the Boxing Day parkrun if the wind drops enough

Reply

Yes! I will run Christmas Eve. Last Year I ran Boxing Day morning after a Christmas Day excess of eating and drinking from noon. At the time, my best runs to date. Felt great afterwards!

Reply

I'm in. Next scheduled run is tomorrow and again boxing day, both will be week 2 runs

Reply

Please count me in!

Count me in on boxing day! I ran 5.8k today so will be a gentle 4-5k I expect

Reply

I should really commit to doing this. Count me in for Christmas Day.

Reply

Count me in for 24th and 26th.

Bit late to the party (as usual). Wasn't sure I could commit to a run but have managed a 5k today, Boxing Day.

Reply

Did Southsea park run today, very, very windy difficult return leg.
