4C, cold, rain. A 5 mile run. A gusty wind blew the rain horizontal and made for a cold, miserable run. Very few dog walkers or others were out in it.

1C, cold and frosty. A 16 mile run. The rain from last night had frozen on the roads, paths were frosted and frozen too.  Nearly went base over apex three times at least.  Wrapped up, ate 3 gels and drank 500ml water. There was a brilliant sunrise as I approached Pebley, and by the time I was returning to RV the weather was turning grey.  I felt strong through most of the run and focused on maintaining good form.  Felt slight left knee niggle, so I might skip a run I’ve pencilled in for Monday unless its definitely 100%.

2C, cold, dark, breezy. A 7 mile run, including pick-ups.  While there was very little sign of mist and frost it was bitterly cold. Felt both heel niggles today. The pick-ups were enjoyable.

1C, cold, freezing fog. A 5 mile run. The mist made it difficult running with my headtorch.  Only came across three dog walkers, or at least only three using torches – could have been more hiding in the mist!  Glad to get this chilly run over. Noticed the Achilles niggle again.

1C, cold and overcast. A 15 mile run. Not that slippery today. Wore headtorch for the parts round RV outbound and the sections where I’m on the road after High Moor and past Pebley Reservoir round to Harthill. Despite that two cars didn’t move out at all, so two near misses.  Had 3 gels and 500ml water. Noticed right Achilles and calf niggle from 15k to the end.  Tired towards the end but mostly felt ok. A good run.
