8.4 easy miles this morning. Fresh snow for the last 2 made me slow down though!

Bored of it now. Come on the sun!

Thought it may be a tad less chilly this a.m. at 6.30 but I was wrong!  The icy wind had dropped and most of the ice & snow was gone too.  5.8 miles.

For anyone not aware, the good news for us runners is that the thaw will start on Saturday and the higher temps will be running into next week.

The bad news is, wet and windy weather will be the order of the day.  Alas, this is winter afterall.

the best news is that the 15k cross country on Hampstead Heath this Saturday has been was a race i'd been dreading for months

baldbloke - what was worrying you about the XC?

Wed 8.00pm - easy 6km woodland trail with Fudge the beagle - we enjoyed crunching through the last remnants of snow - a little slippery in places but nothing too bad - legs needed a recovery run after the increased effort over the last few days

good running everyone

Morning all,

The ice has almost gone!

6 miles this morning with middle 4 at HM pace.

2 foxes on the prowl - I think they thought I looked tasty.

Still cold for a mirror image of yesterday's run.  5.8 miles logged.

24/01/2013 at 18:16

24/01/2013 at 18:19

Thaw start later today TheSianz

10m steady this morning.  Some pavement starting to show through but quite slippy slippy bits.

5mi recovery jog last night to break in my new shoes. So far so good. Brooks Ghost 5's. Pretty comfortable, little toe didn't seem to rub like the last pair. i'm sure one of my feet is about 4 sizes bigger than the other.

8 miles easy along the cold and beautiful River Lea with a friend. Great

4 miles nice and cold with a bit of snow and ice.

3 loops of battersea park at LT pace, which is 3x2.75k at 4.30m/km (with 90s secs recoveries). solid session.

@cidlad. the Hampstead Heath xc is a horror because it's twice the length of a normal xc race, it's a very high standard as it's the SE championship, and as Nessie says, Parliament Hill isn't much fun. nothing Fudge couldn't handle though!

btw, @nessie sounds like your training is picking up nicely!

good session baldbloke

Fri 8.30pm - fresh snow in abundance - 7km in blizzard with hard snow/sleet blowing in from the east on an icy wind - woodland trail - ran with Fudge, who has no endurance problems

good running weekend

26/01/2013 at 09:15

Sat 7.30am - 7km woodland trail with Fudge

easy pace but still hard going - overnight rain beginning to melt the snow - The golden sun was rising over the tops of the trees and there was a mellow mist visible over the fields as the warm air gets to work on thawing the whiteness that covers everything around

musings over - enjoyable running everyone

off to buy a pair of decent trail shoes today  

26/01/2013 at 10:04

What are you thinking on the shoe front, cidlad?  I'm a fan of Mizuno Wave Harrier: virrtually unbreakable

A trio of 5.8 milers, half of each with my long-time running buddy who's well into her comeback now.  Probably had enough of the c-c-cold for now....
