I managed to drink 2 bottles of red wine & cook Christmas dinner. I then watched the Queen and fell asleep on the sofa. Daughter is now in charge of getting the tea snacks together while i watch Lord of the Rings.

I was a bit pissed by 11am so the planned bike ride went out the window

Been a good day, Merry Christmas, hope the belly aches gone Tim.

Whole family's down with it ... sh*t day.  At least it's out the way before Fink begins!  Watched The Muppets, Ice Age 4, Phoenix Nights...

What rotten luck DTT

I managed a short walk on the beach and that's it really.

happy hangovers everyone.

No exercise yesterday but 2.5 hour run along the estuary christmas eve and just back from a run this morning all before any one else is up.

going for a boxing day walk with family on beach later when they surface, might be tempted to have a quick swim.

Blimey Honk, well done. I'm still in bed

Walk into city with daughter to spend her christmas money then bike ride this afternoon to relax from the trauma of going into the city.

SD - you are brave going to the shops today!

DTT - hope you and the family are recovered. Everyone having it at once is rough, but at least it will be over and done with. 

Honk - well done. I decided to stay in bed snuggled up and will have a run later when I am frazzled from the kids arguing! Will get on the turbo soon though - got all the sufferefest videos for xmas, and the family won't feel like I have abandoned them if I am in the house!

I've been for a run, followed by a swim in the sea, followed by a long walk. Now watching Spartacus.

Sea swim today with my other half and toddler looking on in mild amusement.

Being handed a thermos of hot tea post swim by my not quite 2 year old ranks up there amongst the best gifts of the season.

DTT - hope you're all feeling better

ID - that's sweet

Any Yorkshire folk out there? My auntie came from Yorkshire and always served her Christmas cake with a slice of good strong Cheddar cheese.  A Yorkshire tradition or just her being odd?

One and the same I'd say. Does taste good though.

Yep, it is deeeeeelicious

I like fruit cake and cheese. I was tipped off by a northerner about it. All the southerners I have told think it's gross.

Just done a 1500m sea swim, my first ever - salt water doesn't taste very nice! Def worse than fruit cake and cheese! Must stop drinking when swimming!!

Good swimming Rafiki!  Bit chilly?

Oh, and I may turbo this evening 

28/12/2012 at 15:04
Swim and turbo session done this morning, made a nice change as only been able to run so far this week. Then I fitted new tri bars to bike and did quick up and down road to try them out, not as scary using them as I expected.
Still feeling energetic so might do short run or bike again later.
