MERRY XMAS EVERYBODY!!!
I'm just off to run to the top of the hill.
Four(ish) miles round trip, 500m ascent and loads of dead bracken.
Christmas is for enjoying yourself.
Running on Christmas day? You must be mad. I've had too much food and drink to run today.
Doubly Bionic Ironwolf
Just got back from a hill session (10 x 30secs up, jog down) warmup, warmdown. That'll do for today.
Now we're on for turkey dinner and lots of wine.
Running on Xmas Day? Definitely!
I've made it a tradition - even when I've had bugs in previous years I've made a point of getting out there and at least doing a token distance.
Today: Up to a deserted Caldy CC and did 5½ laps of the grounds nice & slow - a 32 minute recovery jog - as my legs are pretty dead from yesterday and the mileage they've had recently.
Nice & mild, but a shower unfortunately dampened the first 2 laps.
Xmas dinner over, presents opened, 1 can of DAB & 2 large crystal glasses of Spätlese to the good. Just time for a quick peek around the forums, then maybe I can sneak a nap....
Interval session. 300 x Lounge to Kitchen ;-)
Merry Christmas to all...
Well done Ironwolf,
You would have to tie me down to stop me running today!
What: 13M steady
Why: So I can eat lot
Last rest: Fri
Change of plan. I ended up doing hill reps instead (6 of, at a rather 'nippy' speed, fast jog/slowish run recoveries). Ironically enough, this was because I couldn't be a**ed running to the next village and back - there's a hill jut down the road. Of course, the gentle run I *would* have had would have been much easier than the stupidly fast hill reps I ended up doing, but the false logic appealed to me as a way to 'sneak' in a hard session and still tell myself I dossed on xmas day! heh heh!
Weight training day. Standing up after turkey and pud. One rep was enough !!
But feel vaguely virtuous having done a hard 45 min on an exercise bike yesterday (protecting an ankle). Which burnt all of 10 % of today's calories !
Happy Christmas all !
13 miles! You must have a flexible family.
Feel bloated, mainly with alcohol, but did get out for 30 mins this am, ran as fast as I could, probably only burnt off the equivalent of 1/2 glass of wine and a mince pie, ah well, long run tomorrow!.
Happy Christmas all!
PS Also did 5 miles fartlek yesterday with a crashing hangover.
Starve a fever, feed a cold.
My cold should be fed enough to run another 4 years after today. No training since the 16th - slaps fat wrist.
Shall be donning brand new off-roaders and romping through the forest at dawn tomorrow
or maybe 11, and just round the block
or to the fridge
I certainly fed the cold!
Will do that 6 miles tomorrow :-)
Only trouble is that means an extra sesh on Friday which means less rest before Sunday. I'm trying to keep the training at three times a week at the moment. Any comments on this?
Why: Just too darn busy, and ive gotta have one day off this week!!!
Last Hard: Saturday
Last Rest: xmas day
Did Father Xmas, Had breakfast, made Harry Potter Potion, drank it...etc etc....packed the car (an hour) running gear on etc... but when I got to family's too many people already arrived and there was no escape...ah well, maybe next year. Well done all who ran.
me also nothing, i'm so ashamed
