Bloody ice!!!!!!!!!!! I am absolutely sick of the stuff. Had a few days of thaw and now the chuffin' ice is back. All the snow that fell yesterday/last night has just completly frozen over. Very glad I'm not running today. If it's not melted by tomorrow though I will go mental. Probably.
Westy - ooh be careful!! It's not so bad if it's fresh stuff but if it's that horrible slushy stuff, watch out!
malcs - thanks for that earworm, I'm sure it will stay with me all blinkin' day now!
lit - thought you would have had buckets of the stuff up there. Mind you it's relatively walm here (a balmy two degrees) and all the snow is now melting
shazmo - hi! Thanks for saying hello - lovely little thread we've got going here. No I did all 5 LT miles together in one lump sum. I just meant that I split it into laps in my head, taking it lap by lap, but physically ran it all without stopping.
acp - thank you! Hopefully going to do a useful post each week.
chick - oo be careful!! I hate driving in snow.
Got out at dinnertime for a recovery 4 miles. Unfortunately snow was melting and it was horrible slushy stuff, so it was more of a recovery walk/slip/slide. Averaged 9:37 pace. Fitness challenge tomorrow night but no running.
Thank you Stewart and lit! Give me a lot of confidence does that. Yeah training going really well at the moment but I'm well aware there's a looooong slog left yet. I've only been doing the higher mileage plan for a week so not getting too comfortable just yet.
Well set off for work this morning and was forced to turn around after about 20 minutes. Took another 40 minutes to get back. All roads just gridlocked despite not being loads of snow. Working from home today instead and definitely made the right decision - really heavy snow now! Might just have to do my short recovery run today, love soft, fluffy, fresh snow (running on it that is, hate driving in it!)
10 miles done battling wind, snow and the type of stinging hail that feels like it's cutting your face open. Legs predictably heavy on the climbs so backed off the pace but then let gravity do it's thing on the way down. Just over 10 miles done averaging 8:50 pace.
Not too much snow on the ground at the moment but if the forecast is right (which it's often not) it could be a winter wonderland by the time I get up tomorrow. Will either be a rest day tomorrow a short recovery run, weather dependent.
