Happy Christmas

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hope Santa brings the trail shoes or compression tights or Garmin or … that you have wished for and wishing you lots of luck for (smashing) realising your (running) hopes and dreams in 2012.

I didn’t have a target running mileage in 2011 (other than running more). I log my runs in miles but last week, by chance, I looked at my total for the year in kilometres and noticed that I was at 944. No choice really other than to round it up to 1000km! So last week I ran a couple of easy 10K’s and this week after school holiday distractions and getting ready for christmas I finally got out for a good 10 mile (16k) run today meaning I’ve only got 20k to run over the next 10 days to round 2011 off at 1000 km.

I might challenge myself to make it 1000 miles in 2012 however please note I’m saying that very quietly incase circumstances intervene or I change my mind!
