Another frosty start, 1C. Went for the usual 7 mile run. In spite of being apparently 3 degrees Celsius colder than Tuesday, the route was more sloppy than slippy. Only found two slightly slippy bits on the first lap. However, I was really caught out on the second lap, the temp must have dipped. There was far more ice about, I nearly came a cropper a few times and the 700m long smooth tarmac stretch around the water ski lake was like running on marbles. Made it home safe and pleased to do so. Still got a slight cough, no niggles.
[By today (Thursday) I’ve got a proper cough and sore throat so laid off a planned run this morning, a shame as even the thermometer next to the bedroom window is showing minus 2C, so it’s probably -4 or -5 in reality]
