I had a very nice run before work ... a dizzy height of 50 mins, trying to keep a lid on the rehab and hoping my foot doesnt fall off in the meantime!

Every one loves a whinger! I did build my singlespeed over the winter period though, very therapeutic... Although I've decided I don't like elements of it that i'll need to change.

Got a polar bike computer thingy for Xmas, it's very cool....

And I have an eBay addiction

Sick, snotty weans  .  That's put paid to my swim and run today, will need to get the pencil out and rearrange the Fink days.............again.

I think another coffee is in order

Sorry about that Nursey.  I try not to get too anxious about missed or swapped session, no matter what Fink says in the book.  And as my splendid mentor has said, it's a plan, and one size doesn't fit all. Life intrudes!  Hope they're better soon.

Cheers Tim.
I do jiggle the days around all the time to fit with my shifts, hubby's shifts and the kids. I just thought I'd done all my swapping for this week!
Unless they have a limb hanging off, they're going back to school tomorrow

30 min recovery turbo at lunch. To save time I followed Raf's example and ate my lunch on the turbo.

Ironman Louisville day 1 training complete.  I'm pooped! Yeah, so what if it was a rest day?

(In all seriousness, will be running a bit later as I'm still keeping my running streak alive at 240 something days in a row)

The tri yesterday went well.  It was a super sprint, and I cut off 6 minutes from last year include a 7:38/mile pace on the run.  Super stoked at that. I did update my blog with the story if anyone actually reads that rag besides my mom (what the heck is a mum anyway?).

Blog update: week 3

Swim, gym and run tomorrow

I watch Netflix when on turbo, it's like having the tv all to myself... Never happens in this house otherwise
