When January started, I was still only 3 weeks post Kosci50. So the first half of the month, was still focused on recovery. 

After a big race, I try to take a week off for every 10km raced.

This doesn't mean that I do absolutely no exercise during this recovery time. It means I do less than usual, and at a low intensity.

This time of less running, also provided me with the opportunity to start thinking and planning the year ahead in terms of running goals and races that I was going to place on the calendar. 

My first run of the year is always a REFLECTION RUN - a short run where I reflect on the past year of training, racing and fundraising. I look at what I did well, not so well and improvements I could make. I also think of the year ahead and what I would like to achieve in both racing and fundraising for my charities.

The last km is left for gratitude, where I think of all the people who support myself and the Running With Heart Journey.


As I recommenced running, I was still undecided as to which direction my running was heading in 2024.

Deliberating between short trail runs, ultra distances or continuing to chase a Boston Qualifier in the Marathon were all in my thoughts.

My first few weeks of running were on the trails and were all about building consistency and chasing elevation as I started building a running foundation following my 5 weeks of recovery.
