I knew having a run today was going to be tricky. Sure enough it was. As much as I tried to spot opportunities, family duties took priority.
We had arranged to spend Christmas at my Mother in Law's place, a few miles away by car. Loading up our car with food, presents, bags etc you'd think we were off on a World tour. Instead just a couple of days but it was a major logistical operation. Determined to have a run - albeit a token run - I was successful once we were there; settled, unpacked. I put my running shoes on but didn't change any of my clothes to take the shortest "run" ever. I was back in 5 minutes but I knew that was the politic thing to do.
That night I found it hard to sleep first of all. No it wasn't because I was uncontrollably excited like our daughters were - I just wasn't tired enough having not had a decent run.
