Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
or happy holidays if Christmas is not celebrated in your household. I hope you will all be able to share some wonderful moments with your loved ones.

On this Christmas eve, I decided to squeeze in a run while I could. Weather is predicted to sour over the next few days and I wanted to make sure I got my long run in before then. So instead of waiting for a crammed bus and squeezing in, I decided to run home after work! All 25 kms of it. I didn't do so bad, fuelled by a wonderful holiday potluck my colleagues prepared. The first half was pretty tough. Who am I kidding, the second half was tough too ;) I still managed to finish in 2:18 which I think is fairly reasonable given the conditions.

The sidewalks were fairly clean if a bit wet and slushy at times.
When I got close to home, I was missing about a kilometer so I took a bit of a detour to add the required kms!
While my pace wasn't constant, I managed to stay under 6m/km the whole time and even break 5m/km for one of my kms. I even managed a negative split by over a minute, all my training is paying off!

Anyways, I'll be checking back in after boxing day. I hope everyone finds the deals they are looking for, be it running gear, electronics, furniture or even kitchen stuff!
