Hello, how was your festive break? Did you have time off- from work and from running (or fitness)? I did, but I managed a few runs while classes were off, so I haven’t been completely idle.
Some classes return this week, and hopefully most will be back next week, but until then I’ll be running to make sure that I kick off my 2017 health and fitness goals the way I mean to go on.
This year, we kicked things off by taking part in the Great Winter Run in Edinburgh, which was absolutely brilliant. Although it was only a 5k, it was well worth the overnight trip to take part in it. I loved it! I’ll post a full race review later in the week, but meanwhile here’s my medal:
Over the past 10 days or so my running splits have improved, which is really encouraging. Tonight I braved the rain and the wind to get another 5k in. @TheWelshWookie and I recently joined Vitality UK and I’m enjoying the additional health motivation that comes with that. So much so that I’ve decided to take part in their 10 week #FittestYearTogether challenge which kicks off today. Day one down, and so far so good!
Here’s hoping that my motivation continues:) Have a good week.

Well done on the 5k! Hope you enjoy the challenge with Vitality! Allison and I signed up with them nearly a year ago through Fitness Rewards and I like the idea of the rewards for being healthy and active 🙂
Thanks Steve, I’m enjoying the free coffees 😉 and I’m looking forward to Ocado starting Scottish deliveries some time in 2017, saving on healthy groceries via Vitality will be a real bonus!
The half price running shoes from Sweatshop are a god send 🙂
I’ve yet to take advantage!
