A little query

I am on holiday in Canada and although I would love to run due to various reasons I have not been able to run for two weeks (here and at home).

Do I just tell myself I am on holiday and forget running until I get back home or do I plug myself into Laura week 8/9 and go for it?? Though it has been very hot and I would have to get up early too.

Any advice...... Or comments

  • I managed to run on holiday and felt doubly pleased that I had gone out to do it, as I got up early to go out too (I'm not a morning person). I'd say go for it!

  • Hello from Canada! Where are you holidaying? Running on vacation is the absolute best, you get to explore new places. It's one of the things I now most look forward to on vacation. If you're in Calgary I can suggest some lovely places to run. And if you're up for a Parkrun we have several across the country now.

  • I am in Toronto and still not been able to run. My IBD has flared up as if it is working with my gremlins. I managed 1k the other night but unfortunate had to rush back home.

    I will try again before I leave here especially as the weather is much cooler. 😀

  • Drat. I have IBS, so am familiar with running/gut issues at times. I hope it settles quickly and you can fit in a run.

  • If you want to run RUN! You don't need permission 😁

    I like a new route meself so I would love the opportunity for a leg stretch in pastures new

    A holiday will not hinder your progress though. Your legs will be thankful 😃👍

  • Some of my best runs were 'holiday runs'. Had to get out early but the benefit of new vista's and the knowledge that I could totally relax afterwards made it doubly positive. (No worries about running into people I knew whilst looking like a poached lobster either)!

  • Hello from Canada (Newfoundland so not close enough to run with) 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

    As an ex pat living out here I will tell you, it is far more normal to run into places ( looking like a half cooked lobster, even), dash to toilets and leave immediately. Any Tim Hortons, mcD, subway etc will have suitable facilities if you suddenly feel the need. And, they won't think it strange in the least, believe me. Hope that helps😜😮🏃🏼‍♀️

    Have a great holiday and give me a wave as you fly over me on return to U.K.!

    Happy running
