Addicted to running?

I guess only a certain breed of fellow idiot will understand this, but when you reach a certain “groove”, you find yourself wanting to run at every opportunity and fitting in the next run can dominate your life!  Now the little sensible person pearched on your shoulder is reminding you that rest days are essential to avoid injury and develop strength, but it’s hard!  Yesterday I avoided all temptation and was able to have a run-free day.

Richard and Chevin 2


After the shock of completing the Chevin Chase (above), we had a day-off to do the “proper” Boxing Day with the “kids” doing everything that ordinary families are supposed to do on the day after Christmas.   It was a struggle though not to get a quick run in!

Finally, today (Monday), I did get out for a 7.2 run round my neighbourhood including taking a look at some of my favourite off-road paths now sadly, underwater – even with the numbing experience of The Chevin, I wasn’t going there!
