Frustrated here. Bloody snow!! To be fair we've got off lightly compared to other places, but I still can't get outside to run. I've joined a cheap gym for a month or two so I don't stop entirely, but treadmills are so BORING.
Sussex Runner - Im a Sussex Runner too - and I find (or have in the past) that its the sunny weather that poleaxes me - rather than the snow. We dont have it for long enough in Hastings for it to be a major issue. And once im out - getting warm isnt a problem.....overheating is though!
i found the snow okay when it was fresh, it was okay to run on, but the last 3 days has been solid ice,
i made do and run on the road early morning before most traffic is out , but evenings its frozen up again
our parkrun was cancelled as the ice was so bad today, i had a gentle 45 min jog on gritted areas dodging odd patches, but its not the same
its started thawing fast so hopefully tomorrow will be better
i'm not sure that am getting great exercise as i have been jogging rather cautiously
Sunday will be fine, it is raining and/or warming up so should be fine. I have been luck in that i stopped for 5 days due to sore knees which has nicely coincided with the snow.
Ice is bad, snow is OK. XC shoes are like wearing snow chains, genius.
