Knitting Penguin (travelling hopefully) said on twitter this morning that she had received an email ‘Weight loss Newsletter’ from Runners World and was wondering what they were trying to say to her. I got the email too. I had also just got out of my PJs into my running kit and looking in the mirror decided that the email was probably just in time because what I saw in the mirror (short round and dumpy) didn’t quite fit the picture of long lean athleticism that I was looking for! Oh well It’s New Year so time to face reality,read the newsletter, follow the advice and take action to shift those Christmas/Winter/general over indulged pounds. (She says whilst eating fruitcake…)
A better organised run today. My Garmin was fully charged and I managed to add a 5 mile run to a family walk along the seafront by getting dropped off a few miles away and running to meet them. Not total perfect planning because whilst it was a crisp dry day and cooler than yesterday, I was still too hot and spent the run carrying my gloves then hat and finally gilet. Not yet fully up to my sprightly best but definitely a better run.
