Lovely 9.5 miles at 6.30 this morning about 3 inch of snow so used the trail shoes. Saw one other runner on my way home.
It was great then went out sledging with the kids which was even better
Lovely run yesterday, (snow day off work!), round quiet Wiltshire lanes through mostly crisp untouched snow, like running through a Christmas card, beautiful!
Shoes are the issue for me...i am supposed to be doing 16 miles tomorrow, thought id stick to roads on road shoes as im a bit concerned my trail shoes wont have enough shock absorbtion for that kind of distance especially if the snow is melted on the road (no pavements in this neck of the woods!)
Recommend yak trax
going out tomorow hopefully
Sophie I thought the same but used the trail shoes anyway. I ran in the snow and when I felt my calfs aching due to the greater resistance I then ran on the road a bit to ease them off.
Did the parkrun in the snow today. Beautiful. Not too deep here.
Lovely run today through the woods. Soft snow. Addidas Kanadias did well. Place to myself.
Couldnt make myself do the whole road thing, slapped on the trail shoes and did 16 miles trail - apart from stinging eyes from the snow all good!
Just watch out though - sledgers are creating ice rinks, had to cut through a park to loop back and went a cropper!
6 miles off road in the snow yesterday and 10 miles today. I really enjoyed it. My legs feel as though they've done twice the distance
the trails today had more runners than ive seen all year, like everyone came out today in a sea of neon long sleeve tops, it was great to see.
I did 21 miles in the snow today, it was great, another recommendation for yak trax! Except by 17 miles they weren't so comfortable under foot. I saw one cyclist today and no runners, but then I never do where I live.
30 snowy, mostly-pavement miles for me today (still got a sore posterior tibial tendon I'm rying to not-upset, or I would have gone offroad. Stabilicers (sport variety) were great while it was icy with a little snow on the top - felt perfectly safe stepping onto the ice. Quick pit stop at home at 20 miles (ate a great piece of Christmas cake) and the snow was deeper by then (ended up about four inches deep) so I changed socks & shoes and wore my Neo trail shoes instead for the last 10 miles.
7.5 miles today on the pavements. Slow going and a bit dodgy in places but still enjoyable. As long as you think ahead and dont allow yourself to drift off too much, you'll be fine. No other runners spotted today round my gaff either. Some guy told me I was mad on Friday pulling up alongside me in his car. I said youre the one driving a 2 tonne chunk of metal on snow, Im just running on it!
Out again this morning, also wanted to check to see what the main roads where like before going to work . . . still lots of fresh snow to run on so no real grip problems and still very people about, think everybody has hibernated!, . . . which may not be such a bad idea
