Am I the only idiot who heard it would snow and thought 'ooh, that'll be fun to run in' without also thinking 'oh dear, I'd better get some full-length leggings'? I hate running in jeans.
Decided to forget running and settled for hard fast walk still exercised but felt safer perhaps thats my age telling me to be sensible still time to run before London and cover miles needed to get round safely. Happy running to others
daisyjess run in shorts.i did ... no problems....how on earth can you run in jeans
Anniesophie - Yaktrax or similar ...unbelievably good for snow and ice. (and no, I don't work for them or sell them). Whether walking or running. Read the size guide and buy smaller than larger if in doubt - so they are a tight fit on the shoe.

Can anyone suggest best trail shoes for compacted snow and icy pavements?
Sure can Annie.. Inov8s Oroc 280s are very rapid over snowy/icy conditions..
Been out in mine earlier and running along an icy road at 7min/mile pace was easy, have to say it feels strange having this much grip on an icy road!!!
Try a treadmill
we'll hopefuly get our for a run tomorow
How do you manage Mick with Phil's chair?
I am in the east coast of England near Clacton, we must be the only place inthe UK that have had nothing!!!!
that depends on how bad it is, and were we go - if i'm at all unsure we simply dont do it
Had great fun on my long run this morning - mainly off-road with a few farm tracks etc thrown in. I wore my Asics Fuji Attacks, shorts over thermal underwear and a short sleeve top over a long sleeve top. Loved it. First couple of km was a challenge getting used to it but after that it was the same as any other run really. Just take the plunge,
I went out for a 10 mile LSR yesterday - glad I went then rather then wait for today as snowing heavily at the moment. Really enjoyed the first 8 miles but the last 2 were really hard work, felt like I was running in sand!
Wore my trails and thermal tights and top but still got extremely cold and suffered for it for the rest of the day - so wrap up warm.
Just done 11 miles and my husband did 17! We both found it very hard work, neither of us have trail shoes, but the fresh snow has meant that it's not slippery at the moment. We're both glad we went out, i agree - once you're home and showered and warm, it's definitely worth it! I'd potentially suggest taking sunglasses out with you though as i found the glare from the snow a bit blinding!!
I went out and ran my 15 miles today. It was snowing lightly and some of the snow on the ground was slushy. Rather hard going, but not bad.
My trails had a lot of ice with a layer of week-old snow gradually coarsening over the top, which gives a better grip than bare ice or fluffy new snow. When the snow was new I wore through the rubber on a pair of Yaktrax on the previous Sunday's outing. This Sunday the correct tools were Icebug Heros and I clocked up 26.6 km.
Roland, thanks for the tip re trail shoes.Needed a new pair, just clinched a deal for the Orocs on Amazon for 44 quid
