Janathon for fairweatherrunner

Me fairweatherrunner?  fraid so….

Now, I’m not a complete girls blouse about mud and inclement weather (one of my favourite activities is British Military Fitness and I have witnesses there that I have done plenty of running, burpees, pressups, situps etc in the rain, wind and snow and leopard crawled in the mud)… However,  when it comes to going for a run by myself I just can’t get out from under the duvet or out of the front door if its, dark, wet, cold, snow, too early/late!  Nor if there’s something good on the TV or someone has opened a bottle of red…  Most years I do very little running from mid October until the spring, which is not great prep for a PB  in my favourite 10k, in May.

This year is going to be different. Nikegrid kept me running into November. I was fortunate to join  a fab team, Team Audiofuel, for the last part of  the grid. I ran everyday for 8 days and rediscovered running in the dark and rain.  Now there’s Janathon and I’m going to try to run, or exercise, every day in January and maybe beyond?  

I’m hoping I’ll be able to undo the christmas excesses without having to give up alcohol, cake and chocolate and manage a sub 50 min in May?….
