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

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.

Have just turbo'd with The Hunted and TrainerRoad. Honestly.....pyramid intervals 10 minutes before the end?? Sick sick sick!

They are quite spicey workouts aren't they, Cat? Did my first Sufferfest yesterday... Angels. Handed Bertie, Schleck and co their arses on a plate and, like every British cyclist since the sinned-against and sainted Tommy Simmo, and excluding that nice, reformed chap David, I did it clean!!

Much better than just turning my legs over and listening to TalkSport .

Oh feck.   You lot are making me feel very guilty.

28/12/2012 at 20:30

Decided to go out for a 25 mile ride yesterday and ended up with such a bad knee! I have no idea how this happened... I haven't adjusted anything on my bike at all! 

The pain in my knee is right in the middle, under my knee cap. It's so painful it hurts to bend my knee just a little, so walking isn't very easy and stairs aren't the nicest to do either! Does anybody have an idea what's wrong? With my Fink plan starting on monday I'm pretty worried about this!

Morning all

Dont feel guilty Nursey, Zulu is a classic.

Thats a bit rubbish Budge. Trip to the doctors mate. I wouldnt worry aout missing the first few weeks of Fink, i think all of us here do more than the first few weeks of Finks training plan. (Apart from Nurse, My knee issues were in the side so dosent sound like the same thing, have you done some Internet diagnosis?

Up & at em for my first park run in a long time. Daughter has a face like a slapped ar$e as ive got her out of bed to do it as well, bad dad She will appreciate it as character builidng in years to come.

Well done, SD.

Budge, straight to the physio if that were me.  Hopefully just 'one of those things' that'll fade away.

Mountain bike with my daughter yesterday, about ten muddy miles along canal (and then hot chocolate and a cake ... top day).  Did a 40 minute night run along towpath too, bit spooky that!

Blimey, that 5k was tough too much food and drink this past month i think.
