It’s the shortest day of the year and I decided I didn’t want to spend it indoors. All of the running magazines go on about making sure that you run with a purpose, so should be doing long slow runs, or tempo runs, intervals, hills, race pace, etc. but today I decided just to run for fun. I didn’t know how long I was going to run for, how far I would go or how fast. I just pulled on my trail shoes, headed out for the Avon trail and ran. I even went off the main trail up into the woods along some of the muddy and hilly routes there. I didn’t take my phone, no Zombies to run away from, just my GPS and my ipod shuffle for some tunes. It was fun and I even sprinted the final 100m when I realised that 7km would be a good distance.
