I was happy I had put on a jumper, a jacket and a buff. And gloves. It was cold! And the heater of my car seems to have broken, so I arrived at the starting point a bit chilly. But the day was beautiful, and after a while I got warm. It didn't take long, though, for me to find the first frozen puddle on the path. I would stop a lot to carefully traipse past such slippery bits. But in spite of that I got back to near the car after only 75 minutes. I was still fresh! And then I saw a path go up the side of the valley. I decided to take it. And it took me, after some lovely meandering on the hilltop, back to town, but not where my car was. I turned around and retraced my steps, and then did an additional loop on a path that followed a slightly lower route. But then it was time to go home as far as I was concerned. 90 minutes of running; not as much as the expected 220 of the race, but well, good enough for now. I still have 2.5 weeks!
The dam of the reservoir I would run around
The cute bridge next to the path; look here for its spring look
One of the boardwalks on which I was a bit cautious; I don't think they're made for frost
On top of the valley
Some time for a frivolous picture with the timer!
