Muttley, not sure that you can deny the logic of Muttley Jnr there; that did cheer up my day!
Harmander, impressive mileage - well done on racking that up already!
senidM - again, decent mileage; good to ensure you take care of yourself if you've not been 100% - so many horrible bugs doing the rounds!!
Nell - what's your marathon?
I did a paltry 1.23 miles today. Headed for the trails which I believe yesterday had some nice crisp snow on them. Today however, I almost didn't make it from my car to the pavement, then when I reached the trails there was a bit of ice to skirt around. Managed just over half a mile before encountering an open patch with a complete covering of ice - horrible, thawed snow that had refrozen overnight so was just absolutely treacherous. Nearly fell over trying to get back across the car park to my car too - like a bottle!
Texted my friends who were heading out later to advise them of conditions - they went anyway and I got a text from one of them later saying she'd fallen on her bum and it hurt a lot. Not good. On the upside, the thaw should ensure they're clear for next weekend!
Did an easy warm up yesterday followed by parkrun with my big sister, so nice easy miles. Need to get my arse in gear as I'm training for a half marathon in February.
YTD: 51.13 miles
