Well not having run for a couple of weeks because of my cold I arranged to meet Lesley this morning for about a 6 miler. It was raining and horrible but it was good to catch up with her as we discussed Christmas and marathon training. I was really struggling though and had to cut my run short – I sounded like a 90 year old with a 60 a day habit !! Just couldn’t breathe properly at all and my head was throbbing.
Lesley had said that she was wanting to be running 9 minute miles by the time London comes round, well I’ve no doubt she will be. She was running really strongly and for the 5 miles I ran with her we averaged 8.13 minutes a mile…..and believe me I was hanging on for dear life !!
Hopefully I’ll manage to shake the cold off, going to try a gentle run round the island on boxing day when I go up to my mam and dads, see how it goes.
Anyways just want to wish any one that reads this a wonderful Christmas, I hope you and your families have a brilliant time.
