Sprinkles of Snow

With a covering of snow on the ground I just had to go running on Tuesday. I was still feeling generally tired from my long run on Sunday plus a turbo session and strength session on Monday, but with rain forecast I knew I had to get out and enjoy the snow while it lasted. I really wanted to get up onto Bleaklow but knew I would be seriously lacking in energy and strength so I chose an easy loop with very little ascent. A wise move as I found even the short section up the A57 before turning on to the farm track quite an effort. The run was lovely, if a little chilly on my feet as I splashed through the slushy puddles.

  1. Can't beat a bit of snow. That's not a bad load by Dartmoor standards this year.
