More snow excuses


More snowy excuses today.

It was snowing when I got up and it continued all day. I convinced myself that a run on the roads and pavements wasn’t possible so decided on a snowy walk to the park where I could for Janathon’s sake run a lap of the sports pitch. I even manged to drag my sons away from the Xbox to join me so they made it out the house today.

Yes, in hind sight I probably could have managed a run as pavements on the main routes were OK and it was fine running on the snow on the sports pitch. I did feel like running more laps after my first but having dragged the boys out they were getting cold standing still (too many memories of enforced laps of that field with school!) so I used them as an excuse not to carry on.


Feeling guilty about my lack of running due to the snow over the past few days I consoled myself that I’m not too far off my marathon plan for week 1…

  1. I love all the snow pics but kinda glad we don`t have it here all the same! Do you use snow grips on your runners?

  2. Looks good to me – at least you are making the effort. Not sure that it is going to get much easier this week unfortunately.
