Before we got piggy I tested out the new runners Santa got me.......
I was hungry enough for breakfast after my run, & since lunch wasn't until 1pm ish ..................
Someone was so hungry their plate broke mid meal!!!
We were too full after first desert to fit in any plum pudding.
But after left overs for dinner
The plum pud, brandy custard & cream went down a treat!!!
Boxing day arrived along with my Sister & Niece plus some boxing day sales shopping & hair dressing sessions
New years was pretty quiet, plumbing boy was in bed by 9.30pm, I think I made it to 10pm before switching from couch to bed after finishing off the last of the Christmas deserts!!
I began new years day with more food (surprisingly) & a walk around the Maribyrnong while PB worked on his dirt bike (it had broken down on a ride the day after boxing day). Couldn't get any sense out of him until it was fixed!!!!!
& after some consternation, committed to this:
I really wanted to do the Melbourne Marathon again this year. I wanted to be sure I could do the distance without having to rely so heavily (psychologically) on a support team to get me over the line. That said, I don't think I could have stopped the support team from coming again this year (they said it was FUN!!), but my logic was supposing I tried Sydney or the Gold Coast Marathons where I don't know the route & have no support at all.......what if I can't do it???? Yeah, I'm a sook!!!
The Melbourne Marathon is scheduled a week later in 2015, which is the week after my birthday & also the week one of my best friends is getting married, & I'm in the bridal party, so just couldn't fit all that into one weekend!!!
The Great Ocean Road Marathon is longer @ 44kms, has lots of hills & will probably be windy (my 2 fave running conditions - NOT), but any time at that distance will be a PB so hopefully my poor little mind will stop stressing & just get on with it. Training has begun already as the event is in May. I may yet consider a second marathon this year depending on how I pull up from the G.O.R.M. Sydney in September perhaps?? Wish me luck!!!!!
So. What are you committing to in 2015?
