Bleak Midwinter

Tomorrow is the shortest day of the year in daylight terms and as a bit of a SADS sufferer I am always delighted to get it behind me. After that it starts getting lighter!
I have struggled a bit in the last week. The last few days have been pretty cold and icey and we had an inch or so of snow yesterday.
At the timetrial yesterday I recorded a pw of 34.40. My legs just felt heavy and I dont think I could have run it any faster. I was beginning to get a bit pessimistic about reaching 2000m for the year a few days ago but have rallied well in the last 4/7 helped by a great wintry run today.
I have run 34m this week and now have 47m to go with 11/7 left. Its a v cold outlook but I'm hopeful of reaching 2000m.
Today I did leg1 of the SWCHR and the Maam Rd, a total of just over 10m.It was -3deg when I set off but clear and bright. I really enjoyed the run. There's a great feeling to be had being out in conditions that most people wouldnt consider being out in never mind running and feeling in control. The Maam road was a surprise. It has been scraped flat and is like a well groomed piste today. Nice to run on.
So its a rest tomorrow and hopefully steady progress to 2000m after that.

  1. Unlike other high precision watches that rely on external replica watches signals or need to sent away for recalibration after a battery change, Precisionist watches use lithium hublot replica batteries that can be as easily replaced as those in other quartz timepieces. The hour and minute hands have a distinctive, curved design, while the simple red seconds counter again features the brand rolex replica sale as its counterweight. Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by hublot replica like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. Arabic hour markers with faux patina lume. The attractive syringe hands and central chronograph seconds have faux patina lume applied too. I will consider using 2018 replica watches for my next watch purchase. It would have been helpful to know that before going through all the other steps.
