So this morning saw me take my lovely new balance shoes out, at sub 2°C I figured I'd just do a quick short run. The realisation that the paths were covered in black ice made me rethink the 'quick' run idea. Heading for the grassy banks solved this problem but I settled in for a slower pace regardless.
My bright Bobby Dazzlers (👍 thanks Runningroni) didn't let me down at all... Perfectly comfy, warm & dry feet & a great big smile on my face as the sun rose. With there being little or no wind, it felt nowhere near as cold as the thermometer suggested & my short quick run soon turned into a lovely paced 6.5k 😊 (longest run to date).
Had I not had to be at work this morning I could quite happily carried on, which is probably for the best, but it was a good feeling!
Happy & safe running everyone!
