That was painful but done.  And also, not sure if it works over there but I've been using a mobile app called "Gym Pact."  Basically, you make a deal with yourself and set the stakes.  I agreed this week to do at least 5 30 minute workouts and if I don't, I pay $5 for each missed one.  If you complete your pact, you share the proceeds from all those who don't keep theirs.  I'm not getting rich, but more or less free cash, is free cash. If you want to take a look and see if it works, I can give you a referral code.

well I think I *may* have got my swimming mojo back   just got back from a good session, it was quiet which probably helped, and there were no men behaving inappropriately which was a major bonus 

tied arms and a chlorine-iduced sinusy headache coming on, but I'm happy.

My sore foot coped with 1hr20 of on/off road cycling on my heavy mtb yesterday, so I'm feeling positive that it'll be better soon (and yes Melds, I *am* doing the exercises and massagin the foot when I can persuade the dog to give me the tennis ball back lol)

Well done Frags  !   I can imaginethe fun with the dog and a tennis ball under your foot !!

and well done Nursey, even if you didnt think it that session changing pace and swimming to others pace will have done you a lot of good !

Sossige sounds like may day minus the pizza and shopping 

Yank that sounds like a very good motivator!!

SONOFA! Guess what's supposed to be here Sunday? The World Cyclocross Championship.  First time ever outside of Europe, right in my city!  But because of flooding concerns, they've moved it up to tomorrow.  Guess who has to work all day tomorrow?  /cry

I'm a college professor. This course meets once a month on a Saturday. There is no good back up plan so I'm screwed. /sigh

There is hope! Winter weather advisory overnight.  Perhaps classes will be canceled? I can dream!
