Crunch, crunch, crunch W2R3

Finally had a chance to complete week 2 after postponing the final session yesterday. With the pavements too slippery and the park boggy I didn't feel it was going to be safe to run, being accident prone at the best of times. But today, thanks to a very chilly night, the ground was frozen solid. So I headed off up the park after work.

I gingerly started out on the warm up walk and the ground felt OK. When Laura gave the cue off I trundled. It wasn't easy, the legs felt heavy but after more huffing and puffing I was at the cool down walk before I knew it. Loved the crunchy noise from the snow as I went along. Something very satisfying about it.

Pleased I managed to get out there today. Looking forward to Week 3 kicking off on Monday :D

Not sure how it's going to be here in the morning, at least the rain has got rid of most of the snowy stuff now x Good luck for W3 x

I wish I'd gone this morning now, didn't seem as bad as the forecast. But looking forward to tomorrow I think!! It sounds a bit daunting..

I know what you mean I just downloaded the podcast, I've said to hubby that he might need to put oxygen by the front door for when I get home lol. We can do this. Just got to pace it right x

Excellent post! Well done! Sounds like you had a great run! It's a great sound isn't it? When I was 2 we had lots of snow, I loved going outside in it, trouble was, it would all fall inside my wellies because I was so small! Didn't bother me, but I now understand why my mum insisted I take them off outside the front door. Little mounds of snow would come out of them as I removed them! Happy running to you! 👏🏻👏🏻🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻😀😀

Well Done! W3 for me on Monday too - hope that blooming wind drops and it warms up a bit, legs seem heavier in the cold, and at 6 stone overweight they're heavy enough already...xx

Thank you. Good luck for W3. Must admit I'm not a fan of the wind :\ I do find I soon start warming up once I get moving. We can do this x

Oh I love that crunch too! If you can get out early in the morning or just after the snow falls, the air feels so much cleaner too. I love making a trail through untouched snow but you need to get up early here to beat the taboggans

Yes it's fun making the first tracks in the snow. My spaniels love playing in it, they act like puppies lol. x
