He goes down near the river quite a lot to hunt, so I'm thinking he might have slid in, then managed to drag himself out ! His tail and back end were completely soaked through, but his front end was dry...he had a lucky escape anyway whatever he was up to !
Slid over to the local park myself today and did hill reps on the grassy slopes where at least there is still a depth of snow rather than ice. Pavements are not great at the moment!
Lol Adbru - you choose you moments - coldest part of the year and snow everywhere!
Ran yesterday but it was very slow, quite treacherous first thing with a thin layer of snow over ice, but it got better as the run went on. Looks like more snow tonight, which should hopefully give more traction tomorrow, but you cannot tell until you actually try it out .
My poor cat was out last night in -4temp . I had had to carry / drag him back into the house after my run during the day because he wouldn't come in, but then he created again to go out at 4am this morning, so I let him out thinking he would be back soon...and he was out until 7.30am . Came in soaked and bedraggled looking like an abandoned cat, wouldn't eat, totally frozen. So I defrosted him with a blanket and hot water bottle and after about 4hrs heat he finally came around and had his breakfast. Stupid thing, he is getting locked in tonight and that is that...!
Cragchick - well done for getting as far as you did. I was following your progress and could tell from the trackers you were making a good steady pace at the back. It made no sense to me when you were pulled, particularly as the guy Leif was only just in front of you. I think it was a really cr!p decision personally. I think there will also be guys at the front who will not be happy with how their races went either, with all the forced hold backs to stop the field spreading out too much...and some doing re-routes / short cuts whilst others had to do the full course in horrific conditions.
