We have been receiving regular doses of slushing. Heavy, wet, rain that doesn’t completely melt when it hits the ground. It holds just enough structure to accumulate if unperturbed, but when a foot (or car) enters, it sprays a cold watery mess.
This makes for quite unpleasant running conditions. Especially if it is actively slushing and windy.
Maybe it will make us stronger…but it has also shortened my runs.
