Traditional Sunday run

January 13, 2013

I don’t do Sunday roasts, I do Sunday runs. Sundays are normally the only day I am able to go for a run outdoors, as I don’t live in the best of areas I avoid running in the dark. Hence I try to make the most of my Sunday run enjoying the fresh air. This Sunday I clocked in 50 minutes and 5.7 miles. I’m slowly getting back into my running.:-)

How do you spend your Sundays?


Sunday Run

January 6, 2013

After a morning of studying the highlight of the day was to put my running kit on, put my new Nike running app on and hit the road. The fresh air did wonders and I loved every second of it. I love the gym and I love heavy weight training, but sometimes all I crave is a good pace out in the fresh air. Just short of 5 miles later, my cheeks were red, my lips smiling and my mood high. The leftovers from yesterday’s fish pie worked excellent as a recovery meal.

I have a few aims with my running for this year. last year I didn’t have time to do as much running as I would have wanted to with early mornings and late working hours. So this year I hope to work toward a marathon sometime in September or October. Most likely one in Yorkshire. I also have my eyes on a 10 km race around Easter and a half marathon shortly after.

Now I need to invest in a good pair of high quality running shoes. Any ideas?
