I was planning on a 7K run last night, but the streets hadn’t been cleared properly and it was like running in soft sand, so I managed only 4K at a very slow pace. I had also forgotten that I’d need to be extra alert about snow ploughs, so running in the dark without my contacts wasn’t a good idea. There was one plough out there that seemed to think that he had right of way on the sidewalk and decided to drive right at me, even though I had nowhere to go. 😡
I tried another run this morning. Luckily the sidewalk had been mostly cleared, but it was still pretty hard going. I think my legs were tired from last night’s “fun”.
It’s still an improvement on the ice that has led to parkrun being cancelled the last two times. I hope it goes ahead tomorrow.
So come to Oslo, where the winter running is exciting!
- By the way, my beanie was the prize from my marathon 2 weeks ago.
