We had snow on Christmas eve, then snow, sleet and rain on the 26th. Returned to work yesterday so I put the Nokians on and braved it in. The shoulders weren't clean, so it was slow going. I took a relatively short route of 10 miles and it took me well over an hour. I had fogotten how heavy and slow the Nokians are, so I was beat yesterday. I need to remember that winter means fewer, slower miles, but you're still getting plenty of work-out.
