Met report: Air temperature 1°C, rel humidity 90%.

Went out and checked conditions: an inch of fairly new snow, and light snow fall.

So I chickened out and went to the gym :-(

But at least the gym was more tolerable than last time; less people so more oxygen, and a film about the Brontës on TV to divert my attention (I don’t know whether that’s good or bad).

Anyway, that’s W5R3 under my belt. I never thought that would happen ...

SNOW!!!!! Okay I love outdoor running, but suffering from stupid tart syndrome so often that would definitely mean a fall is on the cards. If it’s not rude to ask where are you? Other than somewhere snowy obvs!

Good job getting the run done and going to the gym instead to do it.

I’m in Iceland, in a suburban township just outside the capital Reykjavík.

The Bronte sisters - not To Walk Invisible, was it? Amazing film. Love the picture on your post, I got colder just reading your weather report, gym sounds very sensible and not at all chickening out. Better than being a frozen chicken. Oh and WELL DONE on the 20 minute run!

Just checked; yes indeed it was To Walk invisible. I didn’t see the beginning or the end but what I did see was very strong.
