January 1st 2012. YES! We made it through the festive period with minimal collateral damage and almost no casualties (save the cheesecake in the fridge – that got whipped). We even managed to keep to the training schedule, with 4 runs clocked in between Christmas day and today. Not bad. We won’t mention the pace or timings, but we got out there.
And they say start as you mean to go on, so we managed 5km today, which I am especially proud of as:
a) its New Year’s Day – so that’s a first
b) it was POURING down with rain (I had puddles in my shoes, squishing all the way home)
c) the Achilles is playing up
d) with all the festive feasting, and over indulgence, the NYD run was ‘heavy’ going
With the new year upon us, I’m also in dire need of refreshing the running play list so any recommendations greatly received. My track list seems to be stuck in an indie electro time warp between 2005 and 2007. Anyone remember the Klaxons?!
Anyway, Happy New Year all, happy running, it’s good training for the upcoming Apocalypse
