Somehow, nearly a week has passed and I’ve not been for a run! So icy pavements or not, I was determined to get a run in this evening. I recced the pavements while driving home from work and decided that as long as I headed to the busiest parts of the West End, around the Kelvingrove and University, I would be pretty safe from ice.
I was glad I did. In the heart of the West End it was hard to tell that there had even been any snow and I had a clear run along most of my route. Where there was ice, it was more like slushy snow, so I trod carefully and continued on. It was also nice to revisit routes that I’ve not used much in the last couple of years.
That was until the return journey along Dumbarton Rd when I had to wait for traffic at every damn intersection and weave my way around gaggles of University students who were determined to take up the whole pavement. I remember now why I don’t run that route!
Nevermind, it was great to be back running.
Tonight’s run came to 4.5 miles (worked out on Walk, Jog, Run after my Garmin had a hissy fit for being ignored for a week and went blank halfway round).
- Running: 53.7 miles
