Well, my structured gym classes would normally go out the window for a few days over the festive period, but in this case, it’ll be 2 weeks! I’m off down under to visit family over my Christmas holidays, and I had planned on making that the time for increasing my weekly mileage, and had bought the Garmin specifically for that. Running is still my plan, but I can’t remember the last time I ran in 30 degree heat, so I think I’ll be breaking a sweat (frequently) not breaking the sound barrier, speed-wise.
I leave tonight (Christmas Eve) and arrive on Boxing Day, so I’m kind of screwing myself out of Christmas, but also avoiding too much filling up on stacks of pre-bought junk food, so not all bad. I have been naughty and opened a present from my boyfriend – a leopard print latex dress with black paneling that I had wanted! I also got a present from my ‘running friend’ – Diplomacy, the board game. It has good reviews so I’ll definitely be cracking that one open upon my return to the ‘Deen.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas! I’ll get a stopover in either Hong Kong or Bangkok, so at least I’ll get a couple of hours of land-Christmas. The next time you hear from me, I’ll be on the other side of the world!
