My gym opens all its outdoor pools nationally on 01st March. Fe mates posted pics on strava of them in there at 7am this morning!
Good running Gul and Lorenzo. I made do with a bike session over lunch. Bitterly cold out but nominal snow so far.
Yet again it is beginning to look like i've peaked and tapered for a race that isn't going to happen. Newport half is already cancelled. Last time it snowed in December I was due to run a target 10 miler and was in very good shape.
Welcome Stevie you will be in good Company here.
I guess we have the same weather Poacher- the wind making it very treacherous to run. I gave up yesterday but managed 6 slow ones today.
Not sure about Feb but I'm over 450 miles so far this year.
And yes Haweswater 1/2 got cancelled, as did XC and most parkruns this weekend I expect. Can't wait for some Barca sunshine next weekend for the Mara!
6 peaceful miles in the country lanes with the snow earlier. Finally got my yaktraks out. I bought them in 2013 and they've been in box since. Along with trail shoes I got a pretty decent grip,venough to knock out a 6.40 mile 5.Our again for more tomorrow morning. Whilst I won't get anything else resembling a session in this week, I could save it by getting to about 50 miles.
PMJ"I've been in snow the last 3 runs and they have averaged 8:10, 8:10 and 9:15 per mile"

Hope you managed to get to where you wanted Nicko - 14 miles on the treadmill sounds like hell.
So where did all the snow go!
Great weekly mileage for a tricky week Lorenzo.
Very impressive 10K in training Gul - you definitely need to get some races organised.
You need to work on the motivation Leslie!
Well done on getting the long run in RunningGas.
Good to see you found an open ParkRun OO - very picturesque!
Bad news on Bath DT - is Reading an option?
I was out in the snow blizzard on Wednesday for 15 miles, which was great fun but unfortunately I managed to tweak the calf in the last few miles. So rest day on Thursday (not good for a Monster March!) and lots of icing. Recovery run on Friday seemed OK so did a 7K tempo session on the treadmill on Saturday (only 4:04 m/km pace!) with some easy kilometres either side.
All seemed fine today so went ahead with the long run (18 miles scheduled) with plans to cut it short if necessary. Thankfully all went fine and 18 miles ticked off at a steady 7:40 m/m and 64 miles for the week.
