The perfect antidote.....

......to over-indulging on Xmas day - the Boxing Day run!!!!

Distance - 28.5km
Time - 3hr 7.01min
Av pace - 6.33min/km
AHR - 150; MHR - 176
Started with: Livin' la vida loca - Ricky Martin
Finished with: Maneater - Nelly Furtado

It was a gorgeous morning for running - clear blue skies and no wind. It was a little chilly to start with (5*c) but did warm up. The plan was to run Rob Roy, which we did, right to the top. At one point on the way up Rob Roy the song "Lift' by Shannon Noll was playing; you know the "I know you're hurting....." song - at that point all I could think was "you have no idea how much I'm hurting!" However, having said that I have to say that the ipod was only used for a small part of the run - about 10 songs, so I can't have been hurting too badly!

All in all it was a great run with great company and surroundings and I felt so much better knowing that I was running off some of the calories I had consumed yesterday! Today I planned on staying in a calorie deficit and this was a good way to start the day!

christmas calories don't count. they're made by elves and are lighter than snow flakes.
i do admire your discipline.
i only do so because i know that you'll allow yourself chocolate treat here and there. ...otherwise i'd have to slap you.

That's a great way to burn off the Christmas excess. I hope you had a lovely day and you'll definitely see me this year. I've got to visit a client in Canberra in the NY and Steve is running the Canberra marathon this year.
