hope everyone has had a good Christmas
went out for a run this morning, very mild but sooo windy!
hey all How is everyone getting on? I've succumbed to the realisation that i'll probably not run until the baby is here so i'm out walking instead!
How is everyone getting on?
Emmy - when are you due?
I am good, enjoying running outside in the daylight during school holidays
I need to get out in the morning, get my gear ready, set the alarm for 6am, alarm goes off, i turn it off, roll over and go back to sleep, how you guys get up early i have no idea!
My life would be so much easier if i could manage it, instead i get home at 7.15pm go out for a run and the missus gets the 'ump as we eat late, plus shes been at home all day with a 20 month old so would prefer to have some adult company in the evening rather than me head out.
Any tips for dragging my sorry arse out of bed?
muzza - I leave my gear ready in the bathroom, when the alarm goes off you just have to get up, straight into bathroom, gear on, then out. I get dressed in the bathroom because then I don't wake up OH. After a while you get used to the early start and wake up without the alarm going off
I think so long as you do a nice warm up you will be ok. I do notice that I am generally a bit slower in the early mornings...but I am never fast anyway
I feel the same way after an early morning run. It just puts you on the right foot for the rest of the day. Just a shame it's so hard to get out of bed, even when I know I'll feel better for it.
I'll be back to early morning runs soon. The trouble is that I start work at 8:30 and have a 45 minute commute. Getting a long run in takes far more will power than I have. Getting up at 6 for a 5km is doable, getting up at 5:30 for a 10km run is unlikely to happen...
Hey Mathschick - due at the end of March if everything goes to plan Let's see how I get on! It must be nice to have a bit of a break over christmas! When do you go back to work?
Muzza - I feel the same when i go out early mornings! You dont have a run hanging over your head!
well done muzza!
I get up before 5 on the mornings I run (most of them). It is so much easier to get a run in early morning than in the evenings!
Emmy - I go back on Monday!

Lol .... read that quickly as 'hang-over', i thought yeah this morning was an exception
starting early(ish) mornings again ready for going back to work on Monday
normal Saturday spinning then swimming for me
hey gobi, good to know you are still around, I'll catch up on your blog. Hope you are well
Hey Gobi! Happy New year!
It was SO dark this morning (as in darker than normal). I was given a new headtorch for christmas but this one doest seem to light up the way as much as my alpkit gamma did
How are you all doing?
first day back at work today
having a rest day - yesterday I did a 5k race, almost brought my breakfast back up so I must have been putting the effort in, a turbo session and a swim.
Emmy - the mornings lately have been hideously dark!
nothing exciting from me. Emmy is having a baby, but you might know that already.
crap run this morning, but to be fair I woke feeling sick but as the alarm had gone off I got up so as not to face the wrath of OH who doesn't like it if the alarm goes off and I stay in bed! The owls were going mad this morning
lovely run this morning, I have struggled a little this week with it being the first week back at work after xmas. Nice to see some clear sky and a sliver of moon
did you wait for a colder day on purpose?? I think today is the coldest it has been here for a while, I even had to scrape the windscreen this morning
I think I reread and realised that just after I had posted! Thought it would be strange if you hadn't been riding all along
how is everyone doing?
I have had a pretty good January although not quite as much running as I had planned!
wow, well done gobi - I did about 100 miles less than you! I'm not surprised your friend is happy with those times
close encounter with an owl this morning, it swopped down low across the road right in front of me
I never seem to get much faster, but not slower either which is good. My main aim is to keep healthy and enjoy my time out running, cycling, swimming etc
totally failed this morning as I woke with a headache
5 miles this morning, very mild and loads of birds singing even though it was still very dark
