Evening all, warm enough for everyone?

Just been for a little 2.5 mile run/skate while my daughter had her piano lesson. -1 & a bit icy out there.

Lovely at lunch, apart from the ice .

Track reps run on the road. 6 x 800m with 90s rest in between. 3min per rep. Bloody hard, but got there in the end!

2.15 in the gym for me today ... Row/bike/cross trainer and a bit of weights/core thrown in
It was warmer in the gym than at home so I could have stayed for a long bike

I've been working from home recently, in a skull cap and gloves. I refuse to put the heating on in the day!

Turbo tomorrow evening, but Mrs Cat will have heated the house up, so I'll need to open all the windows and doors first!

Nice going SD, M.eldy and Cat. Cat you have to hate those intervals, always makes me feel like puking, but I guess that means that you put in the effort. For a fun alternative I like to do them on hills, that did make me spew last time 

30 min run tonight for me 4.5 miles, v icey should have worn spikes

I hate them with a passion. I've been spending too much time on 400s recently, so trying to bang out 800s at the same pace really hurt. Bile starts to rise by 350m and it's a case of keeping it down . I wanted to give up after 2 reps but pushed on through.

My club does hill session but they always lump them in with lunges, which always breaks something.

ouch, a good fun work out when I was doing a little bit of crossfit was 3 x 400m walking lunges, stairs or standing up from sitting was very hard after that and it kills when you keep cracking your knee on the tarmac, I think I had a bruised bone for ages after that

16 x 400s off 45 seconds for me. Cold out there.

4 mile run this morning...certainly wakes you up in this weather!! Then 2500m in the pool this evening, followed by 1 hour spinning, then 30 mins on the dreadmill! If it sunny tomorrow, might go out and play on the bike

It'll be thick fog ... mark my words

One hour beasting in the pool tonight at FitSwim, reckon I swam at least 1600m.  For me that's a real achievement, so feeling very upbeat.  Maybe I'll make that 2:20 cut-off after all....
