Its getting warmer, which has brought us copious amounts of snow (to my delight) and also an ever growing amount of ice (to my dismay). Every day this week I donned my sturdy winter boots and tested the pavements. I came to the realisation that fresh snow was amazing- the snow covered paths secure, and welcoming. Once they had been cleared and peppered with salt (haha), the surface became more formidable- snow melted and as temperatures fluctuated, ice formed.
Slipping and sliding in my winter boots, I realised I had no hope to go for a run in my less than stable road running shoes. Now I know why there are so many hints and tips about winter-proofing them…
Anyway, my alternate plan is hunt for a metro station that is virtually in a snow covered park. I haven’t found one yet, and so I have no delightful runs to report, although I did return to the beautiful botanical gardens and took some more photographs, and walked through the city every day this week.
For people who actually ran this week, visit the folks at VRUK’s Blog hop.
I hang my head in shame.
