Last Monday evening, training partner Luke and I more or less skated around a very icy 'Blackhill loop'. While last night we covered the same route in a blustery breeze with temperatures again back up to 11C.
As to whether global warming is to blame for the situation is possibly still open to some debate. But what I do know is that it is playing havoc with my wardrobe selection. As I frequently find myself 'over heating' while out running.
At least I am still getting out though. A heavy cold and some family circumstances meant that I was unable to meet my target of returning to racing during November (I am now waiting until the New Year). But I have been able to maintain my weekly mileage and more lately increase the quality with some structured speed sessions.
So I will be sitting down over the next few days and picking some target races for the New Year.
