All I want for Christmas is a festive run
I run on Christmas morning because it makes me feel amazing all day long
'On my Christmas Day run I reflect on the running year and decide what changes and challenges are right for me next year.'
A wardrobe brimming with running shoes, gadgets and lyrca means I have reached capacity on my running gift wishlist. All I want this Christmas is a little escape; a leisurely run before the madness and calories of the day commence. Running on Christmas Day does not make me a serious athlete. I don’t run on this traditional rest day in order to gain advantage on my running peers. Simply I run on Christmas morning because it makes me feel amazing all day long.
Day of Rest
Christmas may be the ultimate day of rest, but with such indulgence we often feel sluggish and lethargic by mid afternoon. It is a long day of eating, drinking, socialising and concentrated family time. If the thought of what lies ahead already raises your blood pressure, running might be just the thing you need to get you through the day in one piece.
