FINALLY not a stunt run!


Warm enough that it isn’t a stunt run. Cold enough that the ground will feel good. Perfect conditions.

This was a pretty run, with hoarfrost, cheerful skiers, a slight traffic jam where I ran into the trail groomer, and my toes, while a bit cold in the deep, soft snow on the way to Stock Lake Trail, all the rest was good. I was a bit hesitant about the roughest trails because I’m still taking it easy, or relatively easy.

I’ve started a strava club called ‘90 Dark Nights‘. If anyone finds their winter nice enough to run outside every day, you are welcome to join me. I suspect that it will be a ‘club’ with just me 🙂

Training Tip:Garmin graphs – stride length

Stride length isn’t something I pay a lot of attention to, but it may be more useful to some. As seen here, my stride length went down when crossing the soft snow on the lake, then raised considerably when I got to the park and ran a bit harder to warm up. It dropped again during my second crossing (around the 1h mark)

Best stairs around! A favourite part of the Marylyn Robertson Trail (McMahon Frame Lake Trail)
