Brass monkey weather …

Up early this morning for an easy 8km run with Alex. It was very, very cold again, real brass monkey weather. I wore my long Skins top and bottoms, my wind vest, gloves and even wore my wooly hat for the first time this season. I’ve decided that I should start taping my knee again, so i shaved my knee last night. Alex has been suffering from a niggle in his calf, and with my knee taped for the first time in a while, we decided a slow one was in order. We ended up with almost spot-on 6 minute pace.

Introduction of secret weapon into war vs calves seems promising.

I picked up the new mountain bike today, but weather has not allowed a test ride.

    Respect! It sounds like your winter is a bit more advanced than ours – I also took out the gloves this week, as the mornings are really turning cold now. Though we haven’t had any frost yet.

    In my books it takes a special kind of person (special as in dedicated, not as in eating paste) to still rise in the wintry cold and just DO it!

    My dad always calls it “spanner weather”, for obvious reasons.

    Oh the torment of a new bike just sitting there! At least you can put mud guards on this one without the other cyclists laughing at you!
