I was all dressed up with nowhere to go at 6am on Saturday morning. I’ve been preparing for a trail half marathon along the Anglesey coast. It’s a really slow course – last year the average for a woman was 2hrs 43 (my PB is 1:50). So with times completely out the window and over the sea, I was looking forward to doing no wrong. After a day of radio being overtaken by weather reports of people with no electricity (can you imagine?!), I checked the race website as soon as I woke up, and sure enough, cancellation was in the biting winter air and on the drifts of snow causing road closures. Shame. I ran a 10k and then a 4.5k and we went to see Les Miserables in Llundudno. Fun if you enjoy watching Russell Crowe trying to sing. I don’t. Things I’m looking forward to this week: more beach running, more snow running, and hopefully a weight session.
By the way – I know you’re all really keen to know whether Russell has even once used the stretch machine that I was so indignant about driving all the way here, let alone walking it up the hill. Well I wouldn’t be bringing it up if he had would I? Something about it being too cold I think…did I mention the cold?
