I've been to a huge, posh gym this evening. I like it...they have some cool machines including a mountain bike machine where you can do races and you have to lean and steer...most people won't be surprised tha I crashed...lots! Sooo much fun though.

Just a light dusting of snow here this morning and a very cold wind. Brrr! But I got nicely warm marching from the station to the office - I'm doing sneaky training by avoiding the tube and walking to the office.

Nice work Seren and Chavlet.

That does sound like fun, Cas, and walking to work sounds rather civilised too!

I have been to spin and I worked hard like a good girl.

Happy nearly Birthday old man 

Cas, I have seen those machines on an advert, i'd fall off them too ... guaranteed!!

Well spinned Mousey

Haha, Melds! I didn't actually fall off the bike itself, just crashed on the display. I think that gym is worth the money for that bike alone!

Morning all,

sounds like some top training from everyone, I'm afraid I got sidetracked by the culmination of a book.

Many happy returns to the Plumster.

I had a very interesting afternoon at the gym being 'assessed' for marathon training

Started off with 30 mins witha physio (resident at the gym) who did a video analysis barefoot on a treddie and then some strength and flexibility tests, knee extension, timed plank, one legged bridge et.c
30 mins sports massage to pinpoint any issues or pick up any issues from the physio ( tightness on lateral side of calf - both sides)
30 mins with personal trainer who I had seen before so she was able to guage what more I needed and to see what I had improved in already ...

All for nothing .. very worthwhile for me,physio says I am def neutral and very even paced, I have rubbish hamstrings and hip flexors (no surprise there ) and I need to work my glutes

Good training guys ... Seren I may have to nick one of your swims as I haven't been to the pool all week due to a sore throat which has now turned into a head cold, I may run it out of my system tomorrow before nights

It was definitely worthwhile Seren, somehow I feel quite reassured to have my gait analysed my a physio and he did say it was the best one he had seen in a long time .. I took that to mean near perfect !

Chav, be careful with your back

16/01/2013 at 22:47

yes i am being careful, managing the discomfort with NSAIDs and deep heat. i felt it getting on the train this morning. i will run tomorrow and see how it feels

16/01/2013 at 22:49

ps good to hear you have a perfect gait... the wing's resident fish is evidently multiskilled

This is it. My last legitimate late night of this year's Jan silly season. Night night...
