Hi, not been around for a while...but don't worry; I am still getting out there! I stopped for a month from 7 Dec-6 Jan owing to a bad cold and then being away to the Canaries for Xmas and NY. I did run while I was there, but it was only about 1 mile barefoot along the beach on Xmas Day! I was quite amazed after 11 days all inclusive (and oh yes, I made the most of that!) that I only managed to gain 3 pounds!
Since then I've been getting out 2-3 times a week and using the fitness suite at school (which we get for free so that's great!), but have just got back out again twice this week since a 10 day break with another flipping cold and also, the fact that it's been freezing outside for what seems like weeks! Anyway, I got out on Sunday and did 7 miles and again tonight and did 4.25 and at a fairly decent pace, 6.7mph so the speed hasn't totally gone with the lay off.
It can be hard to get yourself out there when it's only 1-2c which it was tonight but I am determined not to lose the fitness I've spent a year and a half building up.
What has everyone else been up to??
