Christmas Eve and I have nothing to report on the running front – no runs, no core strength or stretching exercises, but plenty of washing, peeling, chopping and grating – an upper-body workout at least.
Catering for 14 tomorrow and a slightly apprehensive Christmas Eve for me as I volunteered to cook this year. Along with the turkey, stuffing and roast potatoes we have an array of veg, all of which I have ambitious plans for, courtesy of Jamie Oliver. Don’t worry: the packet of dog food at the top of the photo isn’t a side dish.
As with the marathon it’s all about preparation and timing, so in a way this is excellent training for the big day! And hopefully this lot will provide the carbs I need for a short 4 mile run tomorrow evening.
Happy Christmas readers!
