HOW TO RUN REALLY FAST ON THE ICE AND SNOW :]
After slipping and sliding on the ice yesterday I decided to don my X/C spikes. Setting off with Tess pulling me on her lead I tore down the street at high speed to the amazement of old people clinging to garden walls in an attempt to stay upright, I felt like a death defying Russian ice speedway rider as car drivers slowed down to stare as we sped along.
Once we reached the sandhills it was even more fun as Tess and me followed the snowy paths up and down the dunes. 3 laps of the velvet trail later we headed for home, I felt much better than yesterday when I felt slow and lethargic after the X/C, Happy Days :]
Easy-steady, 3 laps velvet trail = 59 mins ' I'M LOVIN IT' !
20 x 1 min fast - 1 min slow, sandhill 6 = 1.19
