Winter is officially here as I feel like its 9pm from the moment I wake up!

WELLLL I was going to attempt to do blogmas (daily blog post) but I knew I that would be a bit of a fail because

  1. I know what I am like
  2. I go home, have a shower, have chat and read a book in bed then…
  3. Fall asleep…I know what I am like

Talking of books! I went to my Charity shop this weekend and got these books two books to read, I’ll see how I get on this month as I usually read 2/3 books a month!

The books that cost £1.50 each!

I have the app kindle on my ridiculously old tablet BUT I love reading an actual book and love going to the library!

Are you the same as me or do I need to get with the programme? Anyway these books only cost £1.50 each BARGAIN!
I am debating if I should make one of them my January 2021 book to read…mmm

Anyhoo! Despite me being typically British and moaning at the fact it so dark outside, I have actually stuck to running 5km 2 to 4 times a week AND walking more!

Can you believe I have managed to run (and walk) over 640 miles so far this year?!? Honestly I can’t believe it!

It amazing how new routines turn into a habit SO quickly! You you end up exceeding your own expectations even if you don’t reach your goal! It is nice to do a little something that makes you proud of yourself!

I mean there is NO WAY I will be running a marathon anytime soon! The thought of running for over 3 hours with no snacks does not fill me with any excitement or joy!

2019 Great Northern Run for Mummy’s Star

When I did the 10K last year (I did the Great Manchester Run) I remember thinking “Your Almost Famous Burger is nigh, keep going Naomi”

SO IF anyone fancies going for a winter run/s I recommend doing the 7 Minute Follow Along Running Warm Up by the The Run Experience on YouTube! Holly is great and although the warm up more like 8 minutes it really gives your body an amazing stretch before your run!

Holly also does a good 5 Minute Follow Along Post-Run Cooldown which is great and covers all basics BUT if you fancy a longer cool down Yoga with Adriene does a great 18 minute Yoga For Runners 2 – Cool Down Sequence (Her dog Benji doesn’t feature in this video)

Do something that makes you proud of yourself!

This could be anything from teaching yourself a new language to getting up 15 earlier than usual so you have time to sort out your lunch to work!
