Simon-Chesters do some great cakes and theres a nice walk up stream from there to a village the name of which escapes me.

Bro / Minni – it was quite bad, but equally I did see the funny side. The poor bloke I went with was broken by the time we got home as he was (obviously) still intent on getting every second possible on the slopes each day. However, the moment he walked through the door I ordered him back out boozing, and kept him up until the bars shut each night. He had to give up on the last day as he was having heart palpitations!

Agree with the 12 week plan and 4 week base – that’s what I was trying to do but got carried away a bit on Tuesday morning as I was enjoying it so much having spent so long out!

2Old- Happy Birthday!!! I am so not getting into this argument. Snowboarding is sooooooooooooo much cooler than skiing, everyone knows that.

10/01/2013 at 16:13

Bro-you're probably right about it being cooler ...especially after sitting on your backside so much

10/01/2013 at 16:18
Brol/2old - 80's Monoski's are the cool skis to be seen on IMHO.

Simon-sadly Im not cool ,though I have got rid of my one piece pink and lime green ski suit

2old - As onesies are big at the moment, maybe one piece ski suits will come back into fashion. So dig out that Rodeo from C&A one piece and hit the slopes!

Simon- yes C&A !, that takes me back. I loved that jacket. There were groups skiing in onesies all over the place this New Year so they were pretty common. All this ski talk is a good distraction from my rest day today. Had to listen to my tired old body. Soon to fall off the wagon.

Evening. 2.5km swim tonight. The only concern was I thought my arms had fallen off but luckily they were still attached. Feel like I've been beaten up now!

Nice one Spoons! I need to start swimming again...

Happy birthday 2older

Chick nice early run.

The CNBA fairy kept hold of me all day and I didn't do my speed reps. Which scuppers my plan for rest of the weeks training but I just feel so tired. And pissed off that everything is falling apart. Anyway stuck with it and didn't fall off wagon tonight...

Happy birthday not2old.

Gir my 10k reps out the way tonight. That faster pace is starting to feel a bit more comfortable but I'd had enough by the last one. Freezing out there too.

AA - Hang in there, your not alone fighting niggles, and the CNBA fairy on your back.

2old - Don't forget your Moon boots the size of dinner plates, or even better your Yeti boots!. Btw is your B'day today or tomorrow? Have a good one anyway

I felt like that after my netball match on Tue....ached in places that I forgot I had!

Happy birthday 2old Hope you have a good one

what was your paces Minni?

10/01/2013 at 20:55

2old -   Happy Birthday

Minni -  Me and you both for 3:15 then, I'm sure it will take you less attempts than me.

Brol -  Another very good speed session with decent mileage, enjoy your skiing/boarding trip.

AA -  Stick with it, both the training and none partaking.

Weather looks dodgy for the weekend, I must be parkrunning again.

Sarah - between 6:41-4:43 but the last one was 6:48. Not really any quicker than I was running them this time last year but feeling a bit more in control - perhaps! I think this is quite a good session to do leading up to a HM because the pace is faster than HMP.

Sarah/Carrot - did you get your BM numbers today? Thank goodness we don't have to collect them on the morning this year. That's always been a bit of a nightmare.

Happy Birthday 2Old .

AA, oh no.  Would the cooker have a manufacturer's warranty at all?

10/01/2013 at 21:04
Barry - Poacher is considering trying to get sub 3:15 dressed as Carmen Miranda and has offered to pace me. Perhaps he could drive the train?
10/01/2013 at 21:18

AA - well done for not falling off the wagon again. I know it's tough but it will be worth it.

10/01/2013 at 21:19

Happy Birthday 2old. Is that tomorrow?
