Minni v Dubai Dave
Still no running for me. -11 degrees. Loads of ice and snow. I've fallen off the wagon and drunk a bottle of sparkling rose to see if that helps....
sorry everyones having such bother with the weather - rubbish!!
6 miles recovery for me this evening - very cold so took ages for my archilies to warm up but after that a very enjoyable run
i have to do a minni and run in the morning - im rubbish in the mornings
Simon - we had it bad in 2001. -17 here for more than a week. We were without electric for 4 days.
No electric for 4 days?
I once went without WIFI for 2 days and I thought that was bad enough!
It was in the days before forums so I coped!
Not taken by me but these are our hills today.
Some of us were teenagers in the Big Freeze of 63 [actually I was 12 but same difference]. Our school closed for half a day which was virtually unheard of in those days [before Health and Safety went mad and every one was sent home at the sign of the first snowflake]. We had feet of snow for months and were out on those sturdy wooden sledges you only see in old films now [e.g.Citizen Kane
We have heavy snow forecast for Friday with travel disruption warnings aleady being put out, so not confident about driving over 100 miles to Surrey for our event.
Jeez Minni - that's a lot of snow. I am meant to be driving to Buxton on Friday evening. I am starting to suspect it's not going to be a good plan!

It's the 27th isn't it?
Bliddy freezing again today. I'm working at home but really need to get to the gym for a run later.
2old - that really sucks...hope you get there soon!
Another pretty snow picture - working at home does have a better view out of the window than the office in London
That looks like absolutely beautiful running scenery Minni (minus the snow, of course), no wonder you eat up the hills.
Very bad news about the helicopter crash yesterday, must have been horrific to see.
2Old - hope you take off soon. If not, get off and head to Minni's neck of the woods as looks like you'll be able to do everything you want to there anyway.
I did 6M in to work this morning and was absolutely blimmin' freezing. No idea of temperature, but was very hard work breathing properly. Quite enjoyable though - Regents Park lake was completely frozen over. Got my Garmin back yesterday so am going to do a few of my regular routes to see how depressingly off fitness I am compared to this time last year!
As for the wagon... I'm not so much going to fall off of it tonight, more be pushed off of the side, run over by it, and then it'll reverse back for good measure. It's our work internal awards do, which is always raucous in the extreme, and a free bar... They do say if you're going to do something, you might as well do it properly.
Must remember to stay awake on the train. Must remember to stay awake on the train. Must remember to stay awake on the train...
