Yep, this morning's run was rather wet, cold and just a bit icy down-back.
All that wet looking stuff wasn't just slimey mud, there was a thin layer of ice coming down this grade enough so that my N1 Trails were not breaking through and I was slippin and slidin around a LOT more than I wanted to. So that this is where I turned around and went back up the little hill.
The combination of a spastic Jack Russell and icy roads...well it ain't a great combination. In that case discretion is the better part of valor.
Turning around was a good choice.
Wednesday's are my tough to get a run in day, so we did good getting the 3.0 in and the last mile back up on the tar was pretty good.
Running in freezing rain, is not my idea of a good time, but I had to take Bennie for either a walk or a run, either way it was going to take 20-25 minutes, so a run seemed as good or better than a walk.
Not a great run, but not a bad run either, we got some good paces in despite the weather and ran slow where it wasn't safe to run faster.
