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

  • Well done for getting out there - it's not easy when the weather seems to be against us!

  • Thank you I didn't want to find excuses not to go, so glad I made it out there x

  • I'm starting Wk3 Monday too (looks too wet tomorrow!)

  • 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

  • Haha yep - and good luck to anyone else starting Wk3 tomorrow!

  • Brilliant, first mate๐Ÿ˜€ Good luck for the next week๐Ÿ‘

  • Thank you x Just got the podcast loaded ready :D x

  • Deep and crisp and.....well done you !!๐Ÿ™‚

  • lol ty

  • 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! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

  • Aww that sounds very cute :D x Thank you x

  • 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

  • I love a run in the snow too.

  • Good fun :D

  • Lovely..If you shut your eyes, it's like running on cornflakes ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • now you come to mention it ..... ;) x

  • I had a run in the snow yesterday - I love that crunch, crunch sound! The sun even came out so it was quite warm, lovely. My spaniel loves the snow too! Best of luck with week 3 :)

  • Thank you :) Always good to have happy spaniels ;) x

  • Good luck with week 3 first_mate .

    Feel confident, you are ready and take it nice and steady. Laura will get you through it.๐Ÿ˜Š
