24 in 24
Well the promised snow came with a vengeance overnight. I awoke at 6:30 to see a blanket of white outside and my decision to get 8 miles in before bed had been vindicated. I felt pretty awful on this run but there were no surprises there! Of course I couldn't get straight to sleep after the run and was up past 2 so am knackered today.
Of course the schools and my office were closed so it was going to be another day at home. I had some work I could get done so I did that and the girls went on a play date next door so at lunch time I took the opportunity to head out into Mcalpine for some slow snowy miles- 8 more for my third 8 mile run in 24 hours. I really enjoyed this run and Mcalpine was looking pristine!
I saw 3 nordic skiers out there which was new one for me at Mcalpine! After lunch and a bit more work I played with the kids in the snow and it was getting noticeably colder as darkness approached- this place is going to be a mess for the next few days with temperatures not expected to get out of the 30s until later in the week. So it will be a case of grabbing miles when I can this week and not much chance of a workout until the weekend. Speaking of which I'm assuming work will be off again tomorrow and am meeting the Hovi at 8:30 at Old Bell if anyone else wants to run on the ice!
