    All frozen solid this morning so had a remarkably mud free run today if a tad chilly and icy in places.

    All my socks are black. More mile vermont 3 pairs for £10 or Pete bland own brand.

    Wheezing, I have black Running Bear socks too. Yiannis used to have (and might well still have) wonderful chocolate brown ones! iirc both Stef and I wore RBs on our wedding day. Stef’s were sky blue, borrowed from me

    Same here: went out at 8:30am with thermometer showing -3C. Had to be careful on frozen rutted ground. Went through the ice cover just once, so came back with one white sock and one brown sock!

    Mud now the worst it has been for quite a while. Most notable places at least ankle deep. #Somme

    The going along the canal on Sunday was very muddy. Cross Country this weekend could be interesting.

    My wife described the towpath behind our house as being one big puddle

    In 30 years that I have lived in Loughborough, I can't remember the paths that I run on ever having as much mud and standing water as now. Still, it feels great to be out running after two and a half weeks off with a calf strain.

    ... wish we had some. Just a little bit. Paths round here are like sand. No they are sand and I'm not training for the Marathon de Sables
