So it’s December now and Christmas is coming up fast. Pretty much broke after all the Christmas presents and it’s the beginning of the month so it’s all good.. It also snowed today for the first time this year so it’s feeling very much like Christmas!
On the other hand, the running front is going decent. I’ve been running all the way along the sea wall in Barling which is about 4 miles, which is steady progress. I start my training plan on Boxing Day which being honest I’m not looking forward too as I think following a schedule involves a dietary plan, which isn’t ideal straight after Christmas! Can’t really remember the last time I actually ate a proper salad or even an apple so I’m sure that’s going to be a blast!!
Despite this on Tuesday morning I ran 6 miles around my area and it took about an hour. I felt like I was running for hours and when I saw how far I had gone I was happy as it’s a record, but it’s like not even a quarter of a marathon! I have 20 weeks to get my shit together and get fit, as not physically feeling any progress at the moment. But it’s also hard to fit the running in, with extra shifts at work and like 3 assignments due in Friday, ( plus a social life) it’s hard to find an hour to actually dedicate time to running and go out.
I’ve also started getting pretty bored of running around the same area around Wakering and Barling, so if anyone has any suggestions of any other nice places to run, even in Southend I’d be grateful because my roads are getting pretty boring.
All in all I hope everyone has a brilliant Christmas and New Year and make it one too remember! My link to the fundraising page is on the left hand side, along with a link to the Willow website! Have a good Christmas!
