4.5M Steadily done. No real bounce in my legs, felt kinda heavy. Cold, but dry out. No snow yet,
Catch up time now.
Yikes. Chilly here this morning, 3 miles uphiller done this morning. No sign of snow (yet)
fantastic swim this morning, longest I've ever done and well over the half IM distance and within the time. 2.4km, in 1hr 10. Limit is 1900m in 1hr 10. So I should be good, and that was with some lengths of kick/breast/back and pull buoy so obviously slower with them. Swim is really coming together....
Will be doing further weeks where bike is the big focus (when it gets a bit lighter at night etc) and also when running will be. Cant do everything...
Run shortly and climbing tonight.
Bf has had some news re-work, they want him to go to USA for 3 months in April then again in October.... decisions have to be made....
Sounds good UTC.
I am hoping to get out for a short run when I finish work and if not I will jump on the spin bike.
sounds good UTC. glad the swimming is coming along.
run last night was rubbish. didn;t wait long enough after dinner before heading out so only managed a slow 5 miles. given the wind was getting up and the temp was dropping it wasn't the happiest run.
no snow yet but wind is blowing a gale. meant to be covering tennis coaching at the club tomorrow as head coach is off to a wedding but given the way the weather is heading i'm not sure any of the courts will be playable.
Good swimming Tri
Five miles last night. Migraine has developed overnigh so trying to get rid of it so that I can get out for long run today. May need to postpone to tomorrow.
morning FFB... (just)
hope the migraine settles. they can be nasty....
heading out very shortly for a longish trail run, cycling up to milngavie then run and cycle back. should be nice, cold but dry and fresh when out at the shop earlier so hopefully it stays that way!
hope the tennis coaching goes well LB!!
Snow just started out here in Erskine.
FFB: Hope you migraine goes , used to have them as a kid.
LB: Enjoy the tennis coaching.
Migraine cleared enough to go for run: 10.3 miles in the bag, but last mile a bit iffy due to residual migraine symptoms.Tried out my new icebreaker kit. They sent me a baselayer pace top and a mid layer vest (and some socks which I did not try today). I already had some baselayer tights. So it all went on and a I had a nice toasty run.
Ideal weather for Icebreaker kit FFB Hope thats the end of the migraine, well done for getting out.
We've still no snow BM!
Sounds good UTC, up the WHW?
Our club used to have blaes courts LB which meant they flooded if there was even a wee shower
Did a 16 mile run on the treadmill today I was only going to do a half marathon but Footloose started playing so it gave me a boost More a lesson in mind-training than anything else
just about thawed out after the coaching today. we had one court playable and kids only turned up for 2 of the 4 classes we run on a saturday but given the weather that was a bit of a result.
MrsMac, our carpet courts cope okay with the rain (unless its torrential) but the frost has been a real problem. the club got some new salt/sand mix to use on the carpet and it has worked a treat on the court we tested it on.
need to get out for a run tomorrow as i'm way behind my half marathon training for Katrine. 50 days to go.
i still wear icebreaker clothes i bought in new zealand when we were there 9 years ago!! its brilliant. especially when free!!!
Pleased the swimming is going well UTC. Hope the migraine has cleared ffb.
Quite a good turn out at our parkrun this morning, considering snowy conditions. I strained left hamstring near the end and had to walk a bit. Doesn't seem too bad now; hope to run tomorrow.
Well done on all the runs, 16 miles on treadmill Mrs Mac - ugh! Maybe I should try it sometime!
You would need the icebreaker stuff today FFB - suspect you'll need more layers than that for antartic though!
Chilly run for us out with some of the group but then we split off and went along the coast from just south of Marwick Bay to Birsay, really lovely though very cold and fell a few times on slippery frozen grass. Back into the wind on the roads which wasn't quite so nice and very cold. 18.3 miles. Not planning to leave the fireside tonight!
yep through Mugdock MrsMac, some along theWHW... very nice. Very toasty in my new xmas thermal top and newly acquired (from a running friend, they didnt fit her) cycle leggings which kept me warm on the cycle up and back. Ran also with new shoes.. heels a bit sore now due to minor rubbing but nothing serious. A glorious day in Glasgow for a run.
Off to celtic connections tonight, Kila (an Irish band bf knows) are playing and a few from the running club are going so should be a nice night.
Long cycle, short run/swim tomorrow before returning to work Monday.
Nice miles Elspeth.
Respect to you MrsMac... I could never do that distance on a dreadmill....
FFB glad the migraine settled enough for a run and the coaching went well LB.
Hope the hamstring is ok Alison.
I need to go get ready now... have a good night people.
Hope the hamstring ok Alison.
Good session UTC, and it was a lovely day for training in Glasgow.
Well done on the treadmill Mrs Mac, I remember the days when I used to do that.
Elspeth that sounds like a good session too.
Longbow coaching in this weather must have been freezing. Well done. I am sure you will be fine for Loch Katrine.
up late FFB?
Just discovered I have no clean kit No recovert run, will have to go on spin bike instead
yep that wind was sooooo cold... nice run in those conditions.
Hope your insomnia doesn't last FFB, I haven't been sleeping great of late either, keep waking through the night for what seems like forever, then am knackered when I need to get up.
Back to work today
Light snow fallen over night, roads look clear though so hoping I can still cycle to work. Might just go to gym tonight for classes and a swim if the weather is still so cold...
