You all know how I hate to brag… still, it`s Christmas, so I`m going to allow myself this one exception…
I ran five miles today. Yay! Christmas Day run done!
Perfect running weather. Temps just hovering at freezing point, which made the road a little hazardous in places but all that crisp air and silence-oh, boy the silence!-made for a perfectly relaxing run down by the river.
Experiments with my new iphone camera weren`t quite as successful as I`d hoped. Still, it was cool spotting this grey heron and running beneath these blue skies
And really, really cool getting home to this big bird….
… and for this, my most favourite dinner of the whole year…
Spot your red cabbage, Sharon?
I realise this mix isn’t to everybody`s taste. But I could eat it for two weeks straight. Which is just as well, because, with all that`s left over, it`s likely that we`ll get the next few dinners out of it!
Crash time, now. I`m glued to the sofa about to dig into some of my Christmas reads. I got two brilliant books to add to my stash this Christmas.
But more about them in another post. Hope you`re enjoying the down time, and the running time in your place!
Well done on your run. I used to do a few miles regular on Christmas Day but settled for a walk instead this year. Happy Christmas RH, look forward to following your excellent blogs through 2014.
Blogging, like running, demands encouragement from time to time. Thanks for that, coach!
Kudos on your Christmas run. It looks like a lovely route.
A little icy in patches, but running in slightly freezing temps can be very refreshing.
Running on christmas day? That is dedication!
Yay, good on you, I’m very impressed with a run on Christmas Day. Your turkey and Christmas Dinner looks amazing!
My new year’s resolution is to keep following your blog because you make me feel so guilty about lack of movement that I’m bound, by conscience, to do something about it… Eventually… Yes, I will.
Had the red cabbage myself today too. Lovely!
Oh,Jenny, I swear my default setting is for sheer laziness. If I get to achieve anything, honestly, anyone can! Yes,Sharon’s recipe was a big hit here today!
Red cabbage spotted! Cannot believe you ran today, no chance my family would never allow it, I would never have time and after being awake since 5 no energy! Well done, in awe of your dedication.
I just had three things I absolutely had to do today-make dinner, run, and get a pic of the Teens together. The last one was the hardest! No kidding!
