Only 10 days to the winter solstice. It’s dark at 4:30 pm. I’m like a human canary, the lights go out I want to go to sleep.
My last run – dark but a thankful respite from the rain!
It’s that time of year-the run up to Christmas, when life’s finely tuned balance gets knocked out due to social type things. Yes you guessed, I haven’t been running for a whole week. But only a week. It seems like a major omission now, whereas this time last year I often only managed weekend runs anyway.
I have to admit that it is a bit harder when you need to do 6 or 8 miles, that’s a good 90 minutes of running for me and it’s harder to find that than just 30 minutes.
So time to get out there, and be grateful that we haven’t suffered in this bad weather. So many people have been flooded out of their homes here in the North West.
I will be grateful too when I’m on holiday and I can lie in bed until the sun comes up and again when that shortest day is past and we are on the road to springtime.
