Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Two pairs of gloves is better than just one…

And so it was Christmas Eve… already! Late in bed to finalize the preparations for today and up early thanks to the clock. Wondered a bit while still in bed if I would run, but as I was awaken… why not?

On with the gear and off I … well, difficult to go right away as the white cover of snow was quite thick in front of my house and in the roads around. Thanks for the night workers, lots was anyway clear enough for running… well not REALLY running. What is it you call when you have 10/15cm snow and no one has touch it before you and you try to… yes, that’s right run… A lot reminding me running in the sea, as the muscles used did not seem to be the same one as usual!

Thanks for cleaning up, guys!

Took a few pics on the way and noticed after a few 100s that I was slightly colder on the right hand… Yapp, had only one layer of gloves and the wind glove had been taken off for taking the pic was laying on the snow… Great to have two layers there as well!

Calm and peaceful?

Here you are, my little glove!

Not much running, then, but ended with 8K difficulty close to 0 with effort as regular workout due to the snow (and thanks to my anti-slip, I could have a good grip!)

Now has been listening to my son singing early in his choir, had gone down the snowy slopes in front of home and eaten a good plate of spaghetti bolognaise. Time for tea break with a friend and then ready for Christmassy cosy evening.
