Went for a run today. Had everything from fresh snow to bare earth, very wet and soggy bare earth I admit, slush, ice and compacted snow. 10 miles, fingers numb and body boiling - only 2 layers. I wore long tights which I don't normally but they double up as cycling tights which is how I get about.
I still want summer but I do like the cold air.
I was too late to enter the Sussex beacon Half marathon, do you know anyone who might have an enrty they will not be using?
Sussex Beacon will do a transfer,

Im doing the London marathon and training is going well. Upto 12 mile runs on a sunday as of last week. I started in December to get an extra month of training in due to knee ACL reconstruction 9 months ago.
Thing is I live amongst the hills and theres nowhere flat at all to run near me and I've a bloody stupid bug thats going round, nose is like a tap. Ive bought some running gloves wih the intention of doing at least 10 miles tommorow but don't know if its best to rest instead and not risk slipping/damaging the knee and the stupid bug I have had since Wednesday.
I could maybe do a long run Monday by getting a lift to where I usually go running but drive there, the cars stuck in the snow at the moment.
Not sure what to do.
Mark, sounds as though you should rest, given that you've got the bug as well on top of everything else. There's no point getting out there just so you can tell yourself you're on schedule if it's going to make things worse.
