oh dear MrsMac... knee deep?? Im so glad the snow didnt come to much here!

Gorgeous day here in Glasgow although apparently icy around areas Lennoxtown etc.. we went south along A77... gorgeous, no ice, no cars, some good drill work done on the cycle lane (yes an actual proper, car free, pothole free cycle lane!!!!), fantastic!!! Around 35 miles, so building distance again... could easily have carried on, but I got a puncture so after change of tube we knew we had no spares so didnt want to keep going too far out. New tyres will sort those problems out (tyres are very worn) on Tuesday and wont be cycling on the road bike (other than turbo) til then so all good. Looking forward to some more good training tomorrow.

Went to a lovely wee cafe for lunch (bike cafe on dumbarton rd-also a bike shop/workshop, bike stands for your bike when you stop by!).Perfect as we had no locks with us!!! Nice lunch and new purple cycling gloves to finish off my christmas money.

Scotland not looking good in the rugby here

Elspeth.. erm 16 miles is long in my book

Tri; Yeah it is a 5 Miler on the road. Starts/Finishes in Battery Park

Elspeth- 16 miles is not to be sneezed at. I managed 17 today- very windy, little bit of a struggle, but instead of grinding to a near- halt, I perked myself up by doing some "strides" whenever I was dragging my ass in the last 6 miles- it seems to get you going again ,and I eventually manged most of the last bit at marathon pace. Happier now- think I'm fine for the LK marathon- but the GE double is a really scary prospect- only 8 more LSR's to go- I need to build up my distance a good bit from where I am at present. Arghhhhhhhhh.

Enjoyable run today. Just over 9 miles, hilly. Away next weekend. Probably will manage some running, but not very much.

My first run in 2 weeks and got soaked.

Some good training going on

04/02/2013 at 07:46

Morning all, a bit absent over the last few days. last week was not a good training week: a bit of a write off in fact, and the weekend was just uber-frustrating with a failed mission to get shoes and a failed trip to loch katrine to do some measuring etc. Grrrr.

Anyway, new week. I see a few people are languishing a bit. I really need to get a shift on and get my mileage up.

Oh, forgot, finally a website It still needs a few tweaks (banner to be animated with other images, a link still not working, and need to link to FB which is proving tricky for some reason) But here we go .... Antarctic Odyssey

morning FFB, BM.

been out for a run this morning, just a quickie.. and it was windy but dry, not any more it would seem, and I need to leave for work

will have a look at your site tonight FFB.

reps tonight with club.

04/02/2013 at 17:34

hello all well so much for the training i was suppose to do last month it went right out the window.only ran twice  but to be honest the thought of running was the last thing on my mind  i mentioned that my dad was in an out of hospital the last month has been a real effort and sadly he passed away on the 20th peacefully. hopefully be back running soon

04/02/2013 at 17:58

Very sorry to hear that Remoh . Hope you can get back to running soon.

Hello again! Yes, I'm back .....major computer issues over the last few weeks but have managed to get myself a replacement sorted and some new Office software at not too much expense. Been keeping up with you lot sporadically, but not been able to post .

Well done on getting the website up FFB - I thought that was you out the other week when you said hello, but tbh I couldnt see anything at all with the wind and sun -  all I saw was a pair of legs as you got nearer , no idea it was you until you spoke .

Did 80m last week, all systems go , having a much lower week this week for recovery and more rest days. Been looking in trepidation at Thames Trot 50 thread - they went ahead and raced at the weekend but had lots of road diversions and wading through knee deep water !!! Really hoping they get some better / drier weather down there by the end of March - I didnt sign up for 100 miles of wading .

Take care out in the snow and gales everyone.

Remoh -sympathies.

TP - welcome back, very quiet on here! That's some mileage you're doing. Sounds like you need a boat!

Grounded with a horrible cold last couple of days, can't wait for it to go!

FFB - couldn't get on your website this morning.
