Run in the Sun

Run in the sun!
We had only 13 hours of sunshine in November in Helsinki. Most of it occurred in the first half, so we got just a couple of hours in the past fortnight. We are located approximately on the same latitude as Anchorage in Alaska.

What's more, we don't have any snow yet on the ground. This adds greatly to the perception of darkness. Sometimes we can have 50cm of snow in December, but it doesn't look like that will happen this winter.


I ran my standard 20km route today, sandwiched between my morning swim and evening bike. It was very nice, if not downright awesome!

Frosty December trail.

I have a feeling December will be a great month for trail running this year. Here's a link to this workout's Strava. Keep on training!
