Sunday 9th April 2006
Evening, minus 5 here this morning, even at 10am. Too slippy for running, so I decided to off road cycle in again, despite having to come home at 9pm on the bike. Its lovely out there, really dry cold, and all the mud is frozen solid so its was much easier to ride.
Supposed to be running Gloucester Marathon on Sunday but can't see how it won't get cancelled. Decision being made on Friday apparently and if the forecast is accurate then I don't think it will be a difficult one.
6 miler on the treadie
Evening. Its started snowing quite steadly now, even though it wasn't really forecast until tomorrow. It made for a lovely ride home on yet another off road commute.
Definitely an indoor running day. I can't see you adding to your marathon tally this weekend Paul.
Its not looking good for Gloucester tomorrow at all - South Wales is either OKish or terrible depending on who you listen to - I have enough hours acrrued to take as holiday if I need to
Gloucester has cancelled already so that removes any travel hassle.
6 miler done on the treadie as I'm working from home.
My world was white already - but is getting a bit browner as there has been no more snow. Pleased I managed to off road commute in again as I had to teach the 7.30 am class! Luckily its still cold enough for the ground to be completely solid. 25 miles commuting for me this week
Yesterday was white today is still white with murky looking roads the sky still looks likeit has more to throw at us. I got to work yesterday but only about 20% of people did and I was traveling amongst the furthest distance there was no one else in from Newport
Last night flet much colder than it actually is - I think walking in teh snow is doing my foot good - the muscles have to work harder
Lovely easy 7.8 miles in the snow this morning with the Sat marathon group - girls are doing well.
Morning. I am having a day feeling sorry for myself after a trip to the dentist yesterday where he found I have 2 abcesses and told me off for being run down. I felt OK until I went to see him. He said these kind of infections are more commonly seen in immunosuppressed people and down and outs!! Charming.
So I've a day catching up on tv and watching it snow from the window.
Well done on running in the snow Paul.
I have been very good today, I've rested, apart from a little walk for fresh air this afternoon. I didn't go into work this morning, despite the snow and everything did seem to survive without me!
Well done Paul. How is the snow there?
We still have a covering on the pavements but the roads are clear. We've done a little 10.5 mile mountain bike in the local woods, keeping the pace very easy. I had a couple of comedy falls when ice got in to my cleat pedal/interface so my foot wouldn't come out of the pedal. Cue slow motion sideways tipple, very amusing for any observers.
Snow is still here, we had about 4-5 inches. Mostly clear off the main roads and it wasn't too bad underfoot today, just the odd icy patch to avoid.
Its all melting in South Wales now - boooo
Still cold but slowly thawing here too.
We woke to very heavy snow this morning, about 6 inches, then it didn't stop until after 3pm. I slid in on my bike, only one of my patients braved it, and they walked. I spent 2 hours clearing the car parks with E. That would definitely count as cross training, it was very hard work.
Still over 6 very hard won cycle miles for the log.
