Little did I know about this winter, when I in December was longing for warm weather training in January. I read in the newspaper this morning that Oslo hasn’t had temperatures above zero celsius (32F) since December 12… It’s been quite miserable to be a distance runner in Oslo this winter.
I’m not a huge fan of treadmill running and need to run some sessions outside during a week. Because of the massive snowfall day after day, the roads have not been properly cleared. Some days have been impossible to run outside. Sore hammies and tight calves are the side effects of running and slipping…
One of my best friends this winter has actually been the Sarva Xero. Quite light shoe with permanent studs. They are light in weight and got a softer mesh than usual. The cushioning is moderate and something between a lightweight model and a well cushioned one. One to try if the snow prevents you from a jog.
