Last Saturday I did my long run in 13C sunshine. This Saturday it was 3C but felt like -1C and it snowed. So much for spring being here!
There were three periods of hail/snow during my run 12 mile long run. I say hail/snow because I’m not exactly sure what to call it. It was like mini snow balls falling from the sky (about 3mm in diameter) but they weren’t ice balls like hail. When they hit me they would bounce off! It was cold and wet but I got 12 miles done. My legs held up better than expected and I was pleased with the effort.
One more week of hard training and then it’s time for the taper!
