Cold again

I'm not liking this cold weather! It feels even worse when you've come back from a week in the sun. I had a long run to do on Friday morning and despite all the layers I still didn't warm up.

Then I was supposed to be racing today in the Dewsbury 10k and it was cancelled! Really gutted especially as I had to miss my last race due to being ill. Why did the snow have to come last night? Couldn't it have just waited one more day?!! I then spent the morning driving to places that I thought would be fine to run off road only to get there and the ground was too icy. In the end I had to resort to treadmill at the gym for my efforts session - borrrring! I find running on the treadmill tedious even when doing efforts. This is not why I run - I like to be outside even when it is freezing cold. Oh well at least I have a gym membership which gives me that option as its better than missing the run altogether.

Some warm weather

Just had a lovely week away training in Lanzarote! It's amazing how easy it is to get out of bed early in the morning and go running when the sun is shining. Spent some good quality time with mum and lil sis too as I would train in the morning and late afternoon then spend the day relaxing and gossiping with them!

I finally feel that I'm back to myself after being ill with the cold and double ear infection. My efforts times are now back to where they should be and I feel great on my long runs. The tiredness I had has now gone and my legs are feeling fresh and bouncy! Let's just hope it stays that way.
