Low pressure imminent. 9C and rain arriving. Just enough time for a mid-week early morning trail run in the snow. Warm sunny days followed by severe freezing winds left the snow with an icy crust that was slick in the rocky parts of the trail so I put on my £10 Normark Isbrodder that I primarily wore up the hill to give me traction on the pavement which was covered with hard water ice. The six small metal studs per foot, mounted on rubber straps, proved themselves to be a great bargain giving me 4x4-like grip on the ice and rock on the trail. It was a fantastic stolen morning and I'll miss the snow while it's gone. Fingers crossed it'll be back in January.
