zen and the art of monk-like living
that's it! all the festivities over.
i tried as much as possible (which wasnt much) to get some balance between wine/beer/snacks and running so i could enter the new year with minimal excess baggage. i failed, but not as badly as previous years.
charlie on the other hand only excessed on turkey, bacon and sausages (oh and a roast beef dinner last night) so he's ready to race.
anyway we got out quite a lot, the highlight being a 20mile trot out over the roaches area and a very peaceful early morning saunter round macc forest.
so now its back to living like a monk...no beer/wine or snacks for the next 6 weeks or so.
we're tempted to do the ultra running series grand slam ie 12 races. we'll see.
next stop 'that's lyth' up in the lakes on 25th jan. our first test to gauge our fitness levels and enjoy inspiring views along the way.
