Red December

Lets get running

Red December

This is a great strategy to really get back into running and start the new year off in a great way.

I usually do Red January, this will be my first time doing Red December – but I really want to start the new year with a good level of fitness.

What is RED December?

RED simply stands for Run Every Day and its as simple as it sound you just need to run every day.

What are the rules of RED December?

There aren’t that many rules when it comes to RED December.

  • Must run at least 1 mile (ideally recorded on an apps so others can motivate you)
  • You must run every day

That’s it.

I want to run 100 miles in the month which is roughly 3.3 miles a day.

My plan is below, but who is going to join me and see if we can do this.

It should really get 2020 off to a great start.

Who is it for?

All runners, whether you are new, regular or just getting back into running, it’s a great way to get into a routine of running and build the base level of fitness before the new year.

Also means you can have that extra mince pie or chocolate without feeling as guilty about it.

I will be posting daily on Instagram showing how far I have ran, so make sure you follow me to keep me motivated. 

The Month's


The plan is very simple, I want to hit 100 miles and I have four key dates in month where I will only be able to run 1ish miles.

Its my sisters 30th and got a family meal, its my wife’s birthday, its obviously xmas eve and xmas day so want to limit them days to just 1 mile.

It means if I am to hit 100 I need to be running around 4 miles on the other days.
