Rivelin. Up & down & up & down & up & down. Round and about. Bitter wind, but beautiful sunshine on snow. Icy - & the mud down at the bottom has dried / frozen a bit so crunchy to run on - a bit of bite, & much easier than the other day!. Just pootling around though - good to be out. Easy run.
Stables / Rivelin / Roscoe Bank / Rivelin / Jackey bank etc. Snow, wet, hail, rain. Very unpleasant - & even more difficult underfoot than yesterday. Never thought I'd feel relieved to hit the final hill in the cemetery - but it was bliss to feel solid ground under the snow / slush at last! Easy run - but it felt like hard work.
Jackey Bank / Rivelin / Roscoe Bank etc. Snow & driving hail at times - diff to see! Very wet underfoot - much worse than yesterday. Paths just streams. Cold, raw wind. Unpleasant - but good to be out.
Stables / Rivelin / Roscoe Bank / Rivelin / Jackey Bank etc. Cold & very wet - v muddy underfoot. Raw wind. Easy run - but felt tired, heavy, unfit (esp when I struggled to the top of the hill behind the cemetery!).
(Reached the style on Bole Hill Rd below the field at the bottom of Jackey Bank just as the council man finished rebuilding it - so he knows it is well used & much appreciated)
