Nice work Brit, and well done on the forward movement SD!

Planned outdoor cycle has been knocked on the head today, so I'll turbo instead.

Just got an e-mail from a friend in New Zealand recommending Holgs books.  The influence is spreading.................................

People in New Zealand can read?

Blizzard conditions in Norwich at the minute. Should make tonights MTB /run brick interesting

My 24 week Outlaw plan starts next Monday, almost finished writing it

Been suffering terribly with a bad chest last week, so did no training after Wednesdays abandoned run session which still saw me run 7 miles, although the last mile ( uphill ) was almost 15 minutes

Anyways went out for a gentle plod at lunchtime, very icy underfoot in places so pleased with 3 miles at av pace of 8.25. Was supposed to be doing a half mara this Sunday but won't be fit enough. Will train instead.

My first book at least ( no idea on 2nd one yet ) has sold really well in New Zealand and Australia, which still amazes me.

Holgs - started your second book. Had forgotten all about Zoe and 'Sunshine on a rainy day' - that was blast from the past - sitting in the Quad outside the Union bar in the first year of my undergrad! Happy Days!

I havent bought your book yet Holgs, on the list though. I'm probably going to buy the first one again as well though as ive only got that on Kindle. I do prefer a paper book.

I have a backlog of 7 books to read at the minute, including two from our zombie author friend.

zombie author? I don't know what you are talking about

I have your book holgs, but can't read it yet as the kids are making me read the Darren Shan books that they are reading, and if I don't get them read they are going to spoil the story by telling me what happens

Tim writes books with Zombies in them.

Nearly bailed on tonights brick but managed to go nearly 4 miles on the mtb followed by the 15 min run. Run was quite good actually. I slipped & slided all the way walking home from work but didnt slip once on the run.

Quick one. First Masters swimming class done and dusted. Really enjoyed it. Good people in the class. Ever so slightly Mothering swim coach but not in a too over the top way.

Bilateral breathing for the whole session.

I'm toast, but in a really great way!

Remembering the way to the pool is an achievement

Holgs - Finished your book. Great read. Your description of the start of outlaw worried me though Guess as it's pretty up to date that we'll have to wait awhile for the third book

I am very glad it's a swim day for me today.  Car says it's -10°

morning nurse.... Even the dogs won't go out this morning. Only -3 here. Got bitten by one of the dogs yesterday ended up in A&E. Steri-stripes, antibiotics and a tetanus later feeling most sorry for self. Gonna try a turbo later. Now have a saving tin for Outlaw next year! Enjoy your swim!
