Merry Christmas! As it’s Christmas day, I decided to treat myself to a nice early morning 5K. Unfortunately, I accidentally drank too much alcohol on Christmas Eve and, not being much of a drinker these days, wasn’t ready to head out the door until the afternoon.
It was pretty busy down on the seafront with lots of people taking advantage of the mild weather and sunshine for a Christmas Day stroll by the sea, but still plenty of room to run.
I took it fairly easy, running the first 3K before switching to a 3:1 run/walk ratio and finishing with a time of 33:15 – not as fast as I would have liked but I was still feeling a bit rough. Still, I was glad to get the run in and felt much better after a bit of fresh air and exercise.
Did you run on Christmas Day? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
