22k in Snow

At 3:30pm I decided to do my run, despite snow, mud and fears. And I did 22k in 2 hours 16 min. Not  my best performance. Do I regret it? It was definitely a challenge, but an interesting one to say at least. Running on compressed, icy and slippery snow is a different exercise altogether. Whenever I reached some snow free ground it felt like taking off skates after an hour on the ice rink. You work out muscles you didn’t know you had. That is a good thing I guess. On the downside: It is literally painfully slow, you get soaking wet trainers and sore legs from toes to hips. Lets hope the snow is over soon. Can’t wait for spring to come.
