The 2020 Farewell run – Done :)

Well I actually completed it. My legs were still a little aching from yesterday’s run but today was Surges so plenty of recovery time

I started with a 5 minute warmup jog then 30 second run, 2 minute jog x 8 and finishing with a 5 minute cool down jog.

The weather was colder than yesterday but dry and still warm enough to run in shorts so on goes my music and off I go.

So all I have to do now is wait for my medal to arrive through the post and I will be a happy chappy.

Now what do I run tomorrow? It has to be a easy paced run to let my legs recover, Maybe a trail run would be fun.

I am still looking for a virtual run for January but not found one that interests me yet.

I have said it in a previous post but



As it’s my birthday I wanted to celebrate with a run. I had no real plan in mind other than to see how I got on.

Even though it was cold outside I still wore shorts thinking that if it’s too cold I will just have to run faster, as it happened the temperature was perfect for running, I even got a picture of the full moon.

I ended up running 4 miles which for me was very good considering I have not been running for a while.

I have just signed up to a virtual run, It’s called “The Farewell Run”, Organized by “The Running Bug”, I can basically run any distance on the 31st December to see 2020 off.

Well it’s perfect timing considering I am back running tomorrow and it would be really fun way to see the year off with no presure on how many miles I run.

When I finish I upload the results and they send me a medal so pretty cool.

I just need to sort my running gear out now.


Well 2020 is almost over, I have not got my arse out the door in a month and the month before that was patchy 😦

I think I have gained about 2 stone this year, All Marathons that I signed up for got cancelled due to covid which really hit my motivation and then I had to self isolate for 10 days so it’s been frustrating, When I am at working I find it much easier to keep to a routine with running and eating, When I am stuck at home I usually eat all the wrong stuff.

Well my isolation ends Wednesday, I plan to draw up a new training plan and hopefully stick to it, I train better when I have something to train towards, Virtual runs don’t feel the same but I think it will be my best option for now.

So I will get a few small runs in see this week off and then start training from Monday.
