A snowy run!

2 Comments

Not one to let the weather defeat me I decided to brave a run this morning.  Not least because the Evil Man* said that I would have to run 4 times next week if I missed today’s run so I figured it would be much easier to get it over and done with.  I knew that any of my usual country routes would be too icy so I decided to stick to the main road that had been gritted.  It’s not a nice run and one I would never have chosen unless I had to run into Bath for some reason, and was a there-and-back route – my least favourite.  And to top it all, very hilly!

Too many hills for my liking!

Looking very pretty

There were virtually no cars which was great.

Great view. Until I realised I live over the other side of that massive hill....

I had 75 minutes on the schedule but I only managed 67, even though I did add on a bit when I got back home to make it a bit further. But in the end I was too cold and just wanted to get home for some breakfast! Very slow because of the hills – an average pace of 10.56, pathetic (but on the flatter bits I was doing more like 9 minute miles)
