Finishing 2014 with a whimper

There were times in 2014 when it seemed, just maybe, that things would turn around. However, as 2014 draws to an end, it seems it's all ended in just a whimper. Run times have stagnated, long runs are a distant memory (ha ha, a pun) and a resolution of this odd training intolerance phenomenon has not been forth coming. Could it be that for some people as they age, their wheels well and truly fall off? It will remain one of life's mysteries.
Who knows what 2015 will bring. One thing is for certain, I'm not getting any younger. Over and out for 2014. Wishing you all the merriest of Christmases and a most wonderful 2015.


  1. Maybe you just need an extended break to refresh and recharge - or if that sounds scary, just heading out for naked runs (or ignoring your watch) and enjoying the time outside without necessarily training for anything in particular.

    Have a great Christmas and New Year!

    1. Thanks Cecilia :-). All the very best to you.

  2. You can't be feeling too bad if you can throw in a pun ;-)
    Thanks for your good wishes Janene - same back to you - I know it's a stressful time of year so start 2015 with a clean Garmin :-)

    1. Thanks ET. There's always room for a pun :-).
      Is there such thing as a 'clean Garmin'?
      Ah well, we'll see how 2015 pans out. At least one can keep somewhat fit with some bike riding.
      I hope you start 2015 fighting fit and injury free :-)
