THE TRAINERS ARE CALLING: Elaine
Temperatures are warming up in the mountains where we live for the winter. Although we keep fit through skiing in the colder months and ski touring in the spring, it's good to put on trainers again when the snow begins to melt. But it's certainly not smooth running here in the mountains.
We're at 1400m so although the snow is melting around the village there is still plenty above 1500m. Running with our two Jack Russells means splashing through the slush and mud before jogging uphill and slowly pacing through the deeper snow, then sliding down a path in the woods to descend.
This varied terrain is good for pace and balance. It also keeps me on my toes, sometimes literally. And it's never boring when you have such amazing mountain views for inspiration
