  1. walk
    alright Hawick 1.5 mi

    Not a lot to say about this walk other than it was freezing all the time at -2C.
    Rogue day # 227
    Hoping for milder weather tomorrow for a long walk/run.

  2. walk
    blah Town 5 mi

    Early minus temps gave way to plus temps which brought the rain on top of the ice. Thank goodness it thawed enough to go for a safe walk.
    Rogue day #226

  3. walk
    blah Peebles & Kelso 4.5 mi

    Very icy in Peebles in the morning, that meant the walk was shortened to 1.5 miles, another 3 in the afternoon back home where it was ice free.

      I was going so well too when I hit the black ice and it hit me back big time. Waited a week before I saw a doctor as I kept thinking the pain would go away.
      It actually feels slightly better tonight, not sure if it’s the pain meds or the cannabis lolly at work 😁

    alright Town 3.1 mi

    Not risking running today. Hands, elbows and knees are multi coloured but not too sore. I wish I could say the same about my ribs, it’s even sore to breath deeply.

    All was going well till mile 5.5 when I slipped on black ice (wind blowing over the bridge caused it) and down I went.
    Ouch! Into limp mode for the rest of the way.
