Running in daylight for the first time since last Saturday I dressed as I did last night, minus the reflective ankle bands, and this morning the extra layers were all definitely required. Partly because it was certainly colder this morning than it was last night – around zero degrees as opposed to about four, I think – and partly because there was quite a heavy frost with patches of ice which I had to tentatively pick my way through. I wouldn’t have been confident attempting to run any faster and the reduced pace combined with the shortness of my run meant I never got warm enough to contemplate unzipping the neck of my top layers or removing my hat as I did for the second half of my run yesterday.
So a token run today solely for the purpose of preserving the Advent running streak whilst waiting for tomorrow’s race. And a token post to accompany it.day 6, 17 minutes running
