It's a multi purpose run..... Red9 and not a parkrun👍

Cold!!! That's the first thought, on leaving a toasty warm house, the lane from said warm cottage is a slip slide affair, warm up jog iffy opt for a walk, better to be safe!

There's people out wrapped up ( looking warm 🤓) the towpath this morning WOW, I know damienair mentioned it's -7 across with him, it's not that cold probably about -2 but surprisingly not too icy by the canal 👍.

Two other runners cheerily pass, buffs pulled up..

The legs needed a reminder to go slow after the 2nd klm was a tad too quick, so I reeled it in checked the breathing 👀 a far better 3rd and 4th hovering around the 6min mark I like that pace, the legs are still going well 9weeks2run.... We need you mended and running 👍👍.

The route I chose today is still a favourite and the canal scenery is just too perfect not to grab a pic 📸, I mean why wouldn't you want to run! You don't know what you're missing!!

Sorry today wasn't a mismatch of colours Jools2020 bit too coordinating 🥳..

So after a bit of speed saved for that last klm it's goodbye to run number 9 for January, 10 for my longest run-streak.

Get yourselves out there and enjoy those runs,

Run safely and keep healthy and be kind to yourself every run is still a run however it goes👍

Well done for Run 9 of your January RED. Thanks for the mention 😃. I’ll have to take your word for colour co-ordination. Not exactly colour blind but I carry the gene; blues, greys and greens mostly look the same 🤣

Looks like a lovely crisp day there - perfect for running, -2 is great once you’re out there and running, but we’ve got freezing fog here and very poor air quality- tomorrow looks better so my run is postponed.

I'll try have a rummage and find a brighter colour as today's stuff was pretty much all grey 🤦

Tritanomalous? I know a lady who has no perception of blue at all. As to myself, I'm deuteranomalous (green weak). I do see colours but it requires really bright light for me to discriminate between browns and greens. This is pretty common in guys.

Never knew there was a name for it! My son and my father both have true colour defective vision. They can’t see any numbers in those tests with the circles. I can, so I just say my colour vision is ‘dodgy’ but I carry the gene from my father and passed it onto my younger son. Interesting stuff!

Off an tangent but my youngest who plays drum's, I took her to watch a brilliant drummer (name to follow 🤦 age memory) he had synesthesia whereby he saw sound as colour, quite mind-blowing until he explained it fully, had an accident ended up in a coma, came out with the condition, but it's not that rare in drummers, they just lay their drum set out in colour order....

Fascinating, I’ve heard of that before. In my mind, all the days of the week have a colour!

Imc50Moderator in reply to Jools2020

Oh this I think started as a run post 🤦 now it's entering other dimensions 🙃

Are you seriously running in shorts and bare arms? Dammit, I get cold just seeing it! It was -2°C here this morning with my run too. But I weaf a thin fleece shirt with body warmer and a pair of winter leggings with very thin fleece lining. Perfect for chilly old me in freezy temps ☺

But you are right, it is perfect for running now, as long as you don't hit a icy spot. Couple years back I stopped running because of winter. Now I am lovin' it!

Well done on Run 9 and hope you are enjoying January RED. Am literally just shocked you are wearing a t-shirt and shorts! Seeing what you wore just made me realise I run in a duvet! 🤣

Imc50Moderator in reply to limu_mu

Yikes limu_mu don't be letting SaskAlliecat see that running duvet she'll be adding it to her winter running wardrobe along with her quilted skirt 🤣...

But I did see other's running in shorts it wasn't just me 🤓

No it really was quite exhilarating, I'd worn leggings yesterday but I was out for longer and it felt cooler yesterday,
