I have been in Switzerland (Winterthur) for the last couple days and although I took my running kit I didn't manage to go for a run. It was very cold and icy plus we pushed on through the night with work so we could come home a day early. So I am here back in the office.

Looks like I have brought the cold weather back with me

Morning all, no SOC today but a working morning followed by a 15 miler this afternoon to leave my Sunday clear to go to my girls who are doing lunch tomorrow.  An advantage of age is  your kids start looking after you

Morning all - trident of pain this morning, 6 mile run 2 x OR, boot camp and spin. Planning to get in the pool later when they clear old all the youth. 5 hours of testing yesterday which was really interesting, body composition (too much Christmas lard still), ECG, resting blood lactate, biomechanics, running economy, cycling blood lactate and VO2. With the cycling lactate they were taking blood from your fingers every 4 mins so it's a bit sore to type this morning! Running economy is very good until I push it up to 12km per hour, so more work on the fast stuff. Birky, major lie in. PSC, it is colder, and doesn't seem to be warming up in the daytime. Enjoy the lunch JF, you'll have worked up an appetite today. Have a good weekend SOCers.

Interesting set of tests Kate.  I know it's something to do with Tri but why are you having them, is it some kind of selection?

12/01/2013 at 11:35

Kate - the tests sound interesting, I like looking at geeky stuff like that

JF - oh, hope my boys look after me when they are older

spin class followed by another 45 mins on a bike in the gym and then a weights session

hungry now

you did not warn me about the smell of this gel

12/01/2013 at 13:14
JF, I'm taking part in a University study so they can see the effect of long distance training on a recreational athlete, finishing with an Ironman in Barcelona in Oct. MC, you're not eating the gel are you?
12/01/2013 at 15:27

haha, no, rubbing it on my knee, but it stinks

Up at 8am for me LSR. 17 miles in rain, wind and random sun. Lovely and quite enjoyable.
Hope you all had a good day/weekend

16 mile trail run this morning and seems like the mud factor has gone up a level or two. NW horses, highland cattle, muddy mountain bikers, dogs, 2 ORs and 2 groups of ramblers.

Off to the pub for a swift pint or two before closing time!

12/01/2013 at 22:49

pub was closed!

Good morning all

7 miles yesterday inc park run. Then spent the rest of the day helping man check point 3 on the country to capital run, all went well apart from a couple of quick dashes to a pub opposite out check point to refill the water urn.

This morning  not good only managed 5 miles of a planned 15 woke up felling a little lathargic after a couple of miles really started to struggle so headed back home 

have a good Sunday all

Good morning - just over 18.5miles this morning including a nice 10mile loop with a clubmate who I met up with en route. It must have been cold as it was the 1st time I've worn running tights for a very long time - no snow though, which will be to the disappointment of my kids when they finally get up!!

13/01/2013 at 10:03

morning all

I was the first to leave footprints in the fresh snow this morning. Did run/walk and did 7 miles, knee not grumbling too much but I was feeling it towards the end so glad I didn't go further.

Chris - pub shut

valis - you probably underestimated how tired manning the checkpoint would have made you. I think Gemma did the event? did you see her?

Test all sound really interesting Kate - I love stuff like that.

How much snow have you had mathschick? We just had a quick flurry with nothing staying on the ground.

8.2 miles yesterday morning in the light snow - my longest run since my knee injury last year so all good so far. A quick 1.5m in the frost this morning - boy was it cold but beautiful out. Loads of wildlife on the lake, far to may to list and most of whose name I don't know. I'll need to take my bird book next time


13/01/2013 at 14:13

not much snow really, more forecast for tonight, but I doubt whether it will be enough to close the schools (damn)
