For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Minus 9 Minni. It was warmer than that when I took my kids to Lapland a few years ago!!!
Minni - That's a beautiful pic. Were you out running in that?
Frazer - Physician, heal thyself, and all that. Get well soon.
DS2 - Once I went out on a cold day and after a few miles I noticed someting pulling on the hairs of my legs...it was the (I can see I'm going to get abuse for this) body milk I'd put on, frozen solid. And white.
Well done everyone for getting the miles in, in what looks like increasingly dodgy conditions.
Wow. That's beautiful Minni.
Ant - this is taken about 8 mile from where I live, which is almost at the bottom of the those hills.
There - it's started already.
I'm really trying hard to be restrained, but I think you do need to explain Ant. Is this some magic running potion (like cherry and beetroot juice)
Frazer has it - how do you expect me to look quite so damn gorgeous if I don't moisturise?
great effort moof in the cold at that time of night. I stayed in and ate pasta
Much better at the coast Minni- only minus 4
Body milk! Ant...
Minni: wow. That is absolutely beautiful.
Still no snow here but the forecast is for it to arrive from the early hours of tomorrow morning. Kind of hoping they're wrong. 20M in the snow on Saturday would be hardcore. And that, folks, is how you know you've become a grown-up: you become pragmatic about snow and its negative side-effects.
Ant - body milk?? Funny though. It was minus 7 in my village this morning when I left for work. Warmer here in South london though (about minus 3) so will venture out for my 5 mile recovery at lunchtime instead.
Minni - lovely picture. I hope it stays up north though. Good idea to keep Mr Minni happy. The way to a mans heart and all that.........
Fraser - hope you are feeling better soon.
moof - respect for getting out for a 14 miler at night when it's this cold. If I didn't do those runs before I got into work I'm not sure they would happen.
OO - pasta sounds a better idea!
5m. Icey. Very slow to avoid slippage.
KR - good 2 mile reps.Bike It - please to hear things are going well.SD - nice MLR.Ant - they all count.AR - good cross training - never done any rowing, but sounds like a tough session.CL - good tempo run; that was bound to feel like hard going.OGL - well done on the frozen MLR.DS2 - too much gel?F - get well soon.Mennania - sounds like the fizz did a good job then.Minni - great pic.Moof - I must confess, I'm considering doubling up the gloves too. Still in shorts though.And don't worry folks, I'm not slacking (well not too much). Out as 5am for 8 steady miles which equated to 17 laps of the field. Still freezing here - apparently on Tuesday night it was -13C down the road at RAF Marham
x-post Keir - aren't you tempted to try a few laps of a near-by field
I'm not sure if it is a good idea Gul. The fields all seem a bit rutted, which is dangerous when frozen. Even running along the middle of the lane today I stumbled over a frozen solid pile of horse shit! If there was a flat, smooth village green style field it might be an option. Of course, I did buy the treadmill for days like this, but I am saving the 'pleasure' of that until it is really bad!
Well done on getting the 8m in. Your building up mileage really nicely. You must be feeling pretty fit now.
