Too icy out there for a safe club run so I have cancelled. 6 tempo miles on the treadie instead - safer and a damn sight warmer.

Keep safe and warm everyone

Evening - a tad chilly here but not as cold as England

It always feels colder when I get of the train in England in the morning

Evening. I managed the cycle commute on the bike but stuck to the well gritted main roads....... and wore the right gloves!

Not had time this week yet to measure the space for the treadmill to help with decision making.

No cycling for the last 2 days - much to icy to be safe. I'm slowly starting to put on my winter pounds. I need to get some time to do some more exercise!

On a better note though, E felt well enough to try a run this week, and didn't feel too terrible so hopefully he is starting to get a bit better.

Last day of the ice here too.........another treadie run done.

Another treadie run......

A skate to work this morning! I had to go in early as a colleague couldn't get her car off the drive. The main roads were OK but the back road and pavements were amazing, an invisible 1/2 inch layer of ice!

Then the rain came in.............

Wet here yesterday and some bugger nicked the signal cabling between cardiff and Newport - I nearly missed my works do

Finally had the x-ray on my foot yesterday

Good do Maddy?

We ran today. First time E and I have run together for ages. It was very muddy! 4.75 miles, all add to the log.

Open house this morning for the long run group, plan is to set off from here at about 0900 for 16 miles and mrs a will welcome us back with hot coffee, bacon sarnies and mince pies

16 hilly miles done and didn't kill anyone despite some quicker early miles.

Sounds like a good motivation for the long run. Well done Paul et al.

I had a terrible and night and have woken up with a really sore throat

E is feeling fatigued again as well so we are house grumpy here today,

Sports personality cheering us up here now.

My money is on Wiggo, but my heart goes with Ellie...

16/12/2012 at 20:22
Think Wiggo's was the best sporting achievement but sneaky feeling that Jess will sneak it. Mo in 3rd.
Overseas must be Bolt, team for the Ryder Cuppers and Brailsford for Coach.

Jess I would be happy with. Mo... feels like he's sold himself out a bit with all the publicity he's done. Not taking away from his amazing achievement though, and the night of entertainment it gave us all.

We can't lose tonight really

16/12/2012 at 22:00


I voted for Chris Hoy - I know wiggo is favourite but this year it is so hard to call it really - so I went for the best quads


Team award was the right one



16/12/2012 at 22:03
Except they didn't compete in an event as a team.
16/12/2012 at 22:36

Maybe not in the usual sense but the olympic team was aconglomeration of so many - hard choice so why not for this year the whole team

Interesting reading the BBC's own stipulation for the SPOTY Team Prize:


For the team in an individual sport or sporting discipline that has achieved the most notable performance in the calendar year to date. The team should have significant UK interest or involvement.

For the avoidance of doubt this criteria excludes Team GB/Paralympics GB but includes the likes of British Cycling, Rowing Coxless Four and the European Ryder Cup team.

Interesting point Paul. I had to go to bed before the end last night as I felt ill, but when E said TeamGB had won it sounded a bit odd. I though the Ryder Cup team would have it. It was the first, and probably the last, time I ever got excited about golf!

I'm still a bit ill. I didn't feel too bad until I'd worked 7 of my 9 hours. The final 2 hours of teaching really didn't help my throat...
