2C, cold, cloudy. A 13 mile run. Didn’t manage to run on Friday due to extremely icy conditions scuppering a run commute. Then snow forecast for today caused the postponement of the Wildest Peaks trail race. So I ran early to avoid the snow and stayed local.
Tried to run easy but stats show my heart rate went higher than expected. Was running with head torch and concentrating on icy paths rather than checking HR on Fitbit.
Carried stuff in a waist belt. Are 1 gel, 1 Clif Bar and drank 250ml water. Noticed heel on and off.
Light snow flurries as I exited Rother Valley and again as I returned through the park, but I did dodge the heavy persistent snow later. Enjoyed this run.
