Hopefully get a run in early in the morning, as there's no chance after about 10.30am.
I wouldn't dare! My husband thinks I run too much as it is [ are there *any* non-runners that don't think we runners do too much?] and I can't afford a decent divorce lawyer so soon after Christmas!
Fortunately I'm actually on a rest week in my training schedule and it's just easy 5 milers, so I've just swapped the days around so I do my easy 5 on boxing day [which I'll do early in the morning as he sleeps off the previous days turkey fest ]
I also have the excuse of going out to test drive the new Garmin forerunner 60 Santa is bringing me this Christmas
Well i would like to i've not been able to get out for a week now cos of the ice but i will be at my folks who live up the road from a great big park so on christmas day come hell or high water I will get down to the park and do a few laps on christmas morning, Lovely!
I'm very much looking forward to my traditional Christmas Eve celebrations - getting leathered in the pub with my brother (fresh over from Canada) while dad's at midnight mass, then we all meet up about 1.30am for present opening and Christmas supper! So I won't be in any fit state for a run on Christmas day morning, but given that I've normally slept off the turkey, pudding and alcohol excesses by early evening (if I make it through to the Technicolor section of Wizard of Oz, I'm doing well. Wake me up when the blue monkeys are on...) I may well step out on Boxing Day.
I stayed with my parents over christmas. The pavements were all iced over and "polished" with rain. Could barely stand, let alone walk or run.
However, on christmas morning, there were no cars on the main (and gritted) roads, so I took advantage, went out and ran down the middle of the local A roads. Great fun. Boxing Day race cancelled due to ice.
Both parents had horrendous colds, I now have a tickly throat and bloody marathon training schedule starts next Monday. Fantastic.
