training run #365

Posted on

Monday 12 December, 06:00.

A frosty dark morning run, 3C.  First opportunity to wear my new running tights, and they were great.  Felt a bit like Batman but they did a good job of keeping the chill at bay.  Also wore new yellow top underneath lightweight yellow jacket and the layering worked great.  Starting out I felt a bit of stiffness in right calf and minor other niggles but nothing serious.  Did usual 7 mile run with a detour via the sorting office to pick up a parcel at the end, which added an extra mile.  The path surfaces were very slippery and puddles iced over; felt like I was using traction control managing the occasional slippy patch and then finding dryer safe ground for a stretch.
