Freezing cold, allegedly 2C but felt well below zero.  Third day in a row for a run on the snow-covered Rother Valley paths, 7 miles again.  I half-thought about just doing one lap, after yesterday’s feet-skidding slow run at great effort, but decided that as I’d got up in the dark and got ready I’d make the most of it and aim for two laps.  The paths were a mixture of surfaces today; still plenty of smooth and compacted white snow, but more parts that were slightly soft, and more icy rutted sections too.  Ever-changing underfoot and I depended on my head torch to find my footing.  I had four major slips, the last one almost got me on the floor, and one rutted section half-turned my left ankle but no damage.  I felt the right leg niggle a bit more today.  Bitterly cold and I’m hoping the weather forecast for a bit of relatively milder weather at the weekend is correct.
