I use Endura Neoprene overshoes - these

keep my feet dry in all conditions and very warm, combine them with merino wool socks and never had a problem with the cold.

Recommendations please for overshoes to stop my tootsies freezing off on the bike.

Beasting in the pool again last night, off for a 5 mile run lunchtime.  And ordered overshoes and gloves so I can get my ass on the bike over the Winter!

Pontypool Home Run on 24th Feb, that'll be my 10k test.

DTT - where abouts are you? By the sounds of it you are Suth Wales based?

Nurse I use overshoes from Lidls or Aldi with a pair of Merino socks.

I believe that DTT is based around Abergavenny, there are a few of us South Wales based, I am near Brecon. Are you around South Wales Rocco?

I sometimes swim with them when stuck in Newport for work.

Track tonight was 100m repeats, the rest of the track was iced up! 20 minutes of 20s with reducing rest periods each 5 minutes. 30s, 20s, 10s, then back to 30s. Brr! Still 9km in the bag.

Evening all. Hope everyone is well on this sodden evening. 

18 mile bike ride tonight, 1:14. It is extremely wet and windy, even in these conditions I averaged 21 mph on the first half, but I thinki from the pseed on the way back that was wind assissted . Absolutely soaked. I don't think my gloves are as wwater proof as they say. And my feet are soaked, I think the rain was coming up and through the small soak away hole in the heel it was so wet

Well if i thought swimming 2.5km in my pool was boring, I discovered tonight one of the Trainers at my gym is planning on 100km sponsored run....... on a treadmill!! How mind numbing is that going to be?? Saw him tonight as he had just finished a 50km training run in 4hrs 30 mins....even talking to me was exciting for him at that stage

06/12/2012 at 22:08

It must be bad if that is a highlight
