Icy pavements make it tricky, you can get those spikes that clip on your shoes which are supposed to be good, never used them personally. I always head offroad in the snow/ice but harder to do in the evenings.
Weekend off mowzer! enjoy.
No little ones with me at parkrun today, they changed the course due to ice so all offroad & 3 laps rather than 2, only about a quarter of it is on pavement anyway. Turned out to be very muddy and corners were tricky, not much grip at all. Really good fun & had a nice 'tan' on my legs at the end ,although I got a PB (for that course) the course was short (2.93 I made it), I was about 40secs faster I think so I maybe would have beat it anyway but would have been close.
Think I'm running parkrun with the little one (and maybe her friend) so will be a slow easy one. Lots of rain recently and most of it is on Grass (now mud probably!) makes it quite heavy going but more fun.
I entered the 2013 one but was injured so can only speak from a spectators point of view and it's very easy to get around to various points. My brother ran it and enjoyed the course. Little bit drizzly that year but probably ideal for running. Slightly uphill finish. All well organised and Expo was good, I still got a t-shirt
Barcelona is a great city, shame that Barcelona will be playing away that weekend (we caught a game in 2013), they play Real Madrid the weekend after if anyone is staying that long!
Staying near the harbour, hotel Oasis I think it's called. We'd normally just use Air BnB and stay around El Gotic.
