Sunday Feb 11 #

9 AM

Running 1:01:30 [3] 11.7 km (5:15 / km)
shoes: Kayano 24

Joined Doug and Enrique for the first 10km of their planned 32km long run as part of their preparation for the Paris Marathon. We headed down along the Seine towards Issy-les-Molineaux, a track that I had never done before and so saw a few new bits of the Paris suburbs. The Seine flooding had subsided quite a way but had left a layer of very slick mud on the river side paths, so we had to stick to the streets. But even there we had trouble with icy patches that required walking pace. I peeled off after 10km and ran a km to the nearest metro, which was on the direct line back home. The guys went on for a lap of Parc de St Cloud and then did the last 8km of the Paris Marathon course through the Bois. Takes me back to the good old days of marathon training, which, thankfully, are behind me!

Running 49:41 [3] 8.3 km (5:59 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Thursday and Friday were very busy days and didn't get out for a slippery run on the ice (the snow is no longer fresh and had turned decidedly icy and dangerous, so was glad to have an excuse). However, a fresh fall yesterday topped up the city and the Bois with a few cm of nice snow so headed out. I had volunteered to helop out at the Parkrun, but it was cancelled so went for a short jog with Doug and an English family who had also turned up. Beautiful sunny morning and the forest looked superb under the mantle of snow.

Running 43:07 [3] 7.3 km (5:54 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Heavy snow overnight and got out very early for a magic run in 12cm of fresh snow, with snow still coming down. Was the first one out on most of the paths and felt great to be so adventurous right in the heart of Paris! Stopped to take quite a few photos (see Strava). The city just shuts down in these conditions so there were no cars, which made for an amazingly quiet run except for the crunch of my shoes on the snow.

1 PM

Running 32:44 [3] 6.4 km (5:07 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Once I left a windowless meeting room and saw that it was snowing in full force (and settling!), I decided to forego other lunch plans and head out for a run. Legs a bit sore and stiff form two days of running over the weekend, but didn't really mind as I jogged around in the fresh snow. It started to celar up as I was arriving back home, so got the best of the day!
