Shock and thaw

29 Dec

I was over the snow: First it was pretty, but it quickly became slushy, then grey, then slippy and it stopped me from running for ages, leaving me with no choice but to eat a third helping of Christmas pud, a bag of chocolate pennies, mince pies…the list goes on.

It pretended to thaw a few days ago but then froze up again overnight so that even running on grass was to reenact Todd Carty’s contribution to Dancing on Ice (the Youtube sensation below).

Anyway, the rain came down and the snow gave up and now, finally, I can go for a run.

Which is good news firstly because I was fed up of trudging to work in these conditions.

And secondly because I have NEW trainers. In fact I’ve got a heap of new running kit courtesy of the January sales.

I’m off out now to put it all through its paces.
