In the room next door, the baby's uncle, who is staying with us for Christmas, was already awake, dressed and surfing the internet.
Somehow we managed to leave the house on time.
A combination of the hamstring feeling odd and a lack of desire to race resulted in me taking things fairly easy. According to my training zones I ran a steady-state pace.
I probably overdid the clothing a tiny bit, with three layers up top, plus hat, gloves, tights, and 3/4 length shorts. Needless to say, it didn't take long for the hat to come off!
As there was to be a special Christmas day event we decided to save the festive attire for the 25th.
Mrs7t also ran, but is suffering from a bit of pain in her foot so didn't manage to set a new personal best. That and the fact that Lime was crying at the start of the run, meaning that she started a little later than everyone else.
A few cups of coffee and quite a lot of cake made sure that we were suitably refueled afterwards.
(The post is short - It's Christmas and there are lots of other things to do!)
By the way... thanks to the photographers, Nicki and Pete, for use of the... er.. photos!
