7C, cool with constant light rain/drizzle. A 7 mile run. The light rain/drizzle was irritating in the light from my headtorch. It got heavier on the second lap. Otherwise a straightforward run and I only came across one pair of walkers at the very end of the second lap, no one else braved the weather.

Distance:  11.39km

Time:  1:06:00

3C, snowing, dark, cold, windy. A 7 mile run. I saw snow starting to fall in the streetlamps as I left the house. It got worse gradually throughout the run but wasn’t settling on the floor.  But worst was the strong winds. Just got on with the run and pleased to get it in. By the finish my tshirt and lightweight jacket were soaked through and plastered to my chest.

3C, cold, light wintry showers. A 7 mile run. Didn’t manage to run Tues and Weds due to early morning work travel to London and Leeds. So was determined to get outside on this chilly damp morning. Only came across two dog walkers towards the end of the session, no one else about in the dark park. Kept it easy. 

Distance:  11.41km

Time:  1:05:57

Avg HR:  154bpm (seems bit high)

Avg pace:  5:46 min/km
