Dec 21st - Dec 27th: Training Ramblings.......Back in Blighty

With just one day in Spain this week we left for the Christmas week in England and true to form it was a nice English week of winter what does that mean? Well, on-off rain, wind, clouds and grey pretty much sums it up!  I don't think I have gotten as wet or as muddy by simply running on the roads, most of the time I came back as though I had run a cross country race!

Wouldn't be right to post about Christmas without a Christmas kitten photo would it?

I did get some solid runs in during the week even with the Christmas festivities.  The highlight was the Christmas Eve run of 14.5miles, the longest since IM Louisville in August.  It was over the roads that I grew up riding on, that's when 15miles on the bike was a long times have changed :-)  It's just a shame that I don't ride while in England, perhaps next time when the bags aren't weighed down by parcels, I'll take my cycling stuff to ride my Dad's bike.

The key now will be to continue on with the strong running as I felt that the past two weeks have been a great kick-start to running better in 2014.  I had periods of good running in 2013, but nothing as consistent as it needs to be.  Next week will be a rest week in terms of running, get back on the bike after a two week hiatus and generally get back into the work/life/training swing of  things.

Total: 41 Miles / 4 hours 58 minutes

Swim: 0 yards / ~0 miles / 0 hours 0 minutes
Bike: 0 miles / 0 hours 0 minutes
Run: 41 miles /4 hours 58 minutes
