Just back from an excellent morning run – 10km from Leyton through Hackney Marshes, then Walthamstow marshes (almost as far as Tottenham Hale) and then back. There was a sprinkling of snow on the ground, and the grass in the marshes was hard and icy. But where else in London can you run past highland cattle, swans on the River Lee, canal boats, hear the rumble of the trains?

In sporting terms it was not my best time – I was too busy working out where I wanted to go! But I’ll be back jogging a similar route very soon.
