Met up with one of my Canicross groups this morning to do our Christmas ‘fancy dress’ everyone welcome 5k. I am such a Grinch that I only added jingly antlers to my regular running gear - maybe I should dress up as the Grinch next year??
A lot of the total beginners didn’t turn up so it turned into a stop/start 7k that Taylor Beagle and I really enjoyed; neither of us having run since last Sunday after I decided I really needed to let the nasty mess (that had been blisters) on my heels heal before I ran again. As a result my calves are a little bit tight, but not too bad considering I forgot to stretch straight after we finished - I was busy sipping hot chocolate as it was exactly 0 degrees by then (was colder when we set out!) - I will foam roller after I’ve taken the dog for her evening constitutional.
No pictures as I was a bit late arriving, so left my phone* in the car, but the woods were pretty in the frost and at one point we had to stop so deer could finish crossing the path ahead of us.
*Phone did better than my arm warmers though, as they got left in my daughter’s hallway when I swapped eldest grandsprocket for Taylor Beagle.
