Running Log – December 17

Friday 1st December 17

5 miles this morning in a mixture of Runamoks and barefoot. It was -2C and the ground way dry and full of rocksalt. a bad combination. I did a few deep squats beforehand and this helped open up my hip a bit which has felt very tight. Ended up enjoying the run. The morning sky was like a christmas card.

2 barefoot miles to keep things loose. Hip tight again. I think it is the settee.

Mon 4th Dec to Sat 23rd December 17

Ra a mile a day for these 20 days. the snow hit and the ground was not fit for barefooting. I ran mostly in Runamoks which were excellent. I fell one day and landed on hip. Very sore. Last 3 days were back to barefoot and then I ran a mile in Runamoks again. Get Christmas out of way and start getting out a  it further and in more interesting places.

Wed 27th Dec 17

Had a bit of a blast around the Entwistle just as it was coming light. 0C and windy. Despite not running further than a mile for a while, I felt sprightly. I went for it. Kept cadence high and although I tired, I was still keeping it high all the way round. Felt surprisingly good. 18 minutes and 52 seconds. Pretty good and makes me feel that a Parkrun would be interesting.
