A little snow here but nothing like 2010, ran down the trail to work making the first prints apart from the odd animal prints, foxes and badgers drag........its snowing now but nothing too heavy here. Hope all can stay safe dont run on ice. A customer of mine broke her wrist on Monday slipping on the ice. Be careful out there.
Managed to run yesterday, although some of the paths were icy. Just started snowing here, mainly sleet at the moment, but it could put a damper on tomorrow's long run. Babysitting on Sunday, so had to change long run to Saturday, but looking after our grand daughter is brilliant, so won't feel guilty if we miss it. Might try and get a 11 miler in on Monday if we can't run on Saturday. Hope everyone stays safe over the next few days. Take care.
Gloucester cancelled, First time ever had it happen but no choice. Looks like its me at the treadmill this weekend but not for 50K
Running not going to plan !0 k today 70 mins??
May not make 4 villages FRC Snow horrid here I would hate to be 2+ hours for a half.
Martin - gutted to hear Glucester 50K cancelled. How is the snow down your neck of the woods? could be nice snowy run along the canal?
FRC - enjoy the wood burning stove and pre race meal. Hope all goes well tomorrow - look forward to hearing all about it.
mcs - sounds like a great way to start the day
I've just entered a spring marathon on 21 April......no, not London - Thesaloniki in Greece - easyjet just started flying there from Manchester so cost of our flights and hotel less than the hotel was last time I ran London! Plan is three nights in Thessaloniki and the a quck pop down to our apartment for another 3 nights. So excited - just hope it isn't too warm!
Wendy- Grantham not to bad 5cm but still snowing. Have friends in Wales who say its terrible. They are going to re-schedule for later in the year but probably not going to work for me. Im on holiday next week so if it clears may go long (26.2?) but not looking forward to it
Sounds great, your marathon in Greece and the same price. Still would like to do Athens one day
Yes Wendy, sounds exciting. I've laid my one mile time trial to rest and wonder if I'll be able to or want to run tomorrow. Supposed to do 5 miles and a long run (10) on Sunday. We'll see. Working on MA on a Friday night. There's a sorry (and cold) state of affairs.
Is it safe to run on snow? Because it seems soft at the moment, but I thought maybe it would be slippy? I really need to run tomorrow and Sunday if at all possible, but don't want to take any risks.
Ikle - running ion snow in trail shoes is fab - I love it - much harder work but great fun. not so fun if there's a blizzard but once the blizzard stops it's great.
I don't have any trail shoes and I'm utterly skint! I think I'm going to have to go on the treadmill tomorrow and see how it is on Sunday...
Hello people, new people... Just been busy... And badly affected by lady-hormones - but I've got something from the GP to try for that, and feel much better already, happier at least.
Traning for Malta has not been going super well - last two long runs were cut short by 4 & 12 miles respectively - combination of the cold, cold weather and m*n*p**s*l misery. Mind you last year the dog died and most of my long runs were squished into a gap in late Jan/early Feb so whatevs hey!
Have Yaktrax but is still slow going out. V. Grateful I bought that 2nd hand treadmill off a colleague last year! I try not to think about how it probably reads much faster than I am really going!
Also - paying the Fat Tax! On bright side - not injured or sick yet, and neither is Alex the dog, despite being a parkrun regular now (people love to warm their hands on him afterwards! )
AH - glad I am not the only one doing the miles in double -figure pace
