Just finished my first 50 mile bike ride.  Great fun, avergaed 15mph.  Chain off once, had to turn around twice cos of flooding (sure I saw an Ark being built on a distant hillside).  Roads were a mess in places.  Aching a bit, but in a good way.  A real confidence boost.

10k done uphil and down very wet and muddy and I fell over but no harm done. Slowest there by far but had lots if fun and a couple of the guys stayed back to keep me company. Got to try and salvage my trainers somehow this afternoon.

Well done DTT and Ali.
Hose the trainers down and fill with balls of newspaper. Replace hourly, or stick in the airing cupboard.

I normally realise I've forgotten to do that when I get my wet xc shoes out of the bag a month later!

90km on the bike today, including a recce of the Marlow du course. Got home and did a 1.25 km brick to see if I could still run.

I've been asleep all day but have intentions to run before I go back to work tonight!
How lovely to see grass and pavements!

I've been on the Sofa all day with the finest hangover for many many years (I know it's not big or clever although it was a very good night).

OH not to happy (as could be expected).  Toddler has had a fine old time using me as a climbing frame.

Back on the training wagon tomorrow.

Done my first weeks training, good thing they're keeping it light ! I had a very lovely walk today for 90 mins keeping my heart rate in zone 1

Have just started using the turbo the lovely missus bought me in July and I love it... have also discovered that if I turbo whilst wearing a wetsuit surfing vest I don't drip sweat everywhere

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
