FFS, Bear... Outlaw is significantly more than half a year away! Chill your big furry paws. 2012 sprint times won't be worth a jar of honey by the time you roll into Nottingham next summer. Turn the majority of those 4-hour runs into 4-hour rides and you'll be fine .

I love that the first element of your winter bike training programme has been to pimp your ride with a snazzy paint job. First things first, n all that !

Slower - apparently it had rust worms and bears don't do worms.

6km run with tri club, then hour in the pool with same. Even managed a length of fly.

Shattered now. I did add a third activity to today: run, swim, kebab. This thing is huge.

The rain is hammering down and I've just heard thunder.  I've moved my rest day and am taking it today  .

Good choice. They never get thunderstorms in that part of the world.

Evening all

on a recovery week this week ... I find the training sessions on a recovery week harder than my normal sessions think it must be that I am more motivated for bigger sessions

Today ...

- 45min trail run

- 75min spin
- 45min weights ( full body )
