Morning dustin and LMH

24/01/2014 at 09:13


Heavy day today. Doubt I'll get running.

LMH - it's Brighton for me.

What: probably nothing

Why: Lots of intermittent work to do

Lyrics.  No

Have a good Friday.

LmH - probably be a later start - Saturdays normally have to be at the pool for 6:15 for youngest's training. Her XC race tomorrow is middayish, but parking at Parly Hill isn't the best. Think the senior/vet men go off about 3, so I should be finished in daylight...

Hi Guys,

What: Rest day + half day at work (Yay).

lyrics: No, but sounds 'pop' like.

Emzap- Each day is better than the last I think. Hard to tell, work is keeping me distracted, plus keeps me aware that I am actually capable.

Decided to buy a triathlon bike with the money now not going on elective. Will be my first racing/tri bike. Anyone have any suggestions on brands/do and don't for buying? I think I will have around a grand to play with.


24/01/2014 at 15:48
dibs - options are huge

will you just ride or is it tri only?
24/01/2014 at 16:00

Actually 40 gusting 55 kts (44 - 60 mph)

fire lit and not going out again

24/01/2014 at 16:02

Gobi- Ride and tri. Is it a better option to get a racing bike and then get areo bars?


24/01/2014 at 16:13


A lovely day here - if you are a skier   fresh powdery snow and minus 6 degrees. Perfect conditions for a tempo run --- NOT!!

what: 7 slow miles
why: see above
last hard: coming to terms that winter is here to stay for a while
last rest: Monday
lyrics: yes!!

Have a nice weekend all.

24/01/2014 at 16:21


I think hopefully the back is responding to the exercises, please please...

Dustin I am over Parly Hill tomorrow too

oh, sounds lovely 'fire lit and not going out'!

emzap I was delighted my doctor gave me exercises tbh!

think I know the lyrics

what: 3 miles and back exercises done first thing this morning

why: need to run and back needs the other!

last hard: this morning

last easy: yesterday

have a good weekend all 


24/01/2014 at 17:19

Sounds promising Wabo.

Dibs - if it were me I'd go for a road bike and clip on bars. The most important thing is fit so go to a proper bike shop and take some advice - or pay for a bike size at a Retul fitter or similar. Having the set up right makes a huge difference.

OH - I envy you your fire but not your weather.

Don't send any our way emzap/chickadee!
