So in a few weeks I will be heading off for a 5 week holiday, and I am not sure what I am going to do in terms of keeping up with running?
I will be going with a couple of friends, and so the first question is when would I fit in a run? They are both not runners, and I wouldn't want to just ditch them (and possibly miss out on something fun they are planning) to go running.
Also we will be in cooler climates, and I have never run in cooler weather than 15 degrees, so I am not really prepared at all for running in the cold.... and also I would have to pack extra (running gear), and I am trying to keep my pack as small and light as possible....
We also plan on doing a lot of walking/hiking, so I am thinking that maybe that will be enough to keep my fitness up - but I am not sure if it would be sufficient, so I guess I am leaning towards just not running, and maybe re-doing the C25K program when I return. But I would be sad to pretty much lose most of the progress I have made. Which makes me want to try and fit in time for running! So I am having a bit of a dilemma - I dont know what I should do! Any advice?
