Shopping all done.  Have given the plan a wee shuffle so today is now my rest day, which will be put to good use wrapping things.  Also, it means I don't have to go out in the bloody horrendous weather we're having here.  I know, I know.............HTFU.

Hi everyone ... still hoping to train over the silly season, but it'll be less structured.  Had a great swim this week, 400m without stopping which is a MAJOR improvement, dead chuffed.  Swallowed half the pool.  Went home and had cake and beer.  

Have a great Chrismas everyone, and a happy 2013.  I'm looking forward to Jan 7th (first day of my Fink for IMUK .... a rest day!)

I thought my last post had finished everyone off.

Evening all. Pressie shopping all done. Just got to get the veggies for christmas day lunch.

Restarting park runs on Saturday. May go for a couple of rides if the weather is ok over christmas.

I've switched my rest days to the Fridays Tim. Means i can incorporate the clubs coached swim session. Also, by the time i get to Friday after a weeks work, i do like to chill. Never feel too motivated on that day.

Great Swim as well mate, well done. Couple more and i bet you'll just be able to keep going without even thinking about it.

Nice swimming Tim .. its all coming together innit  !!

I swam too but only to record a 200 time for WInterswim (I did some more as well) but feel like I am coming down with a cold so the energy levels were a bit low

Another day off tomorrow and then back to work for the weekend

Lovely 4-hour ride around flooded Cheshire today with Muffin. Felt like a real treat, even if we did come back looking like we'd been mountain biking. Some seriously, seriously twatty car drivers around though . Always seems to be the case in the run-up to Christmas. What's the rush, folks? Asda's not going to run out of mince pies and eggnog, ffs! Let's be careful out there, folks xx

5 weeks and a day since my ankle op, an event I celebrated with a Physio supervised 5 min jog around a highly sprung gymnastics floor exercise area.

Good to be back "running".

All the best of the season's joy etc etc to those celebrating. I'm guessing I will over celebrate to the tune of 3 / 4 lbs.....

Good news on the ankle ID.

Think ive probably put 6lbs on during the run up to christmas. Will lose it once the old IM training commences in a couple of weeks.

Hows everyones 30 week Outlaw training going?

I entered this bad boy today as my Olympic cant wait

Morning, all very quiet on here lately.

Guess your all either doing Christmas stuff or training to much to post

Hoping to do a cheeky 40 mile ish ride today, its a bit blowy outside though so cold be interesting.

I'm still here.  Been swimming, running and turboing this week, but today I'll be making mince pies and staying cosy in front of the fire.

Good luck on the bike SD, the weather here is far too fierce to venture out in.

Well done Nursey. I havent made it out the door yet

Managed a couple of runs the last few days, but had ingrowing toe nail done (sore!), and my missus has turned 40, so busy with that too.  Oh, and apparently it's Christmas soon.

Off for a nice Xmas Eve fell run tomorrow.

At the moment supervising a toddler with her lunch whilst Em has gone to sainsburys. Will run and turbo later to keep out of trouble.

Hope the toe improves quickly Tim.

Is most of the food on her rather than in her, Holgs?
