Gas - I was more interestd in how you set the resistance on the turbo (assuming its variable) to mimic the road (we've been 'discussing' this on another thread). Mine has ten settings, so I can obvioulsy make the ride much easier than it would be on the road. I've worked out that at a set cadence and heart rate on setting 4 gives me the same speed as on flat road, but its + or - a couple of mph. Just wondered if I'd missed a more obvious way???

Morning world

Tis a snowy one again

I am soooo over winter

I got the dreaded hamstring injury over the weekend - off to the physio tomorrow hoping it's not too serious - only 8 weeks before SA Ironman

My weekly update if you're interested!

Thanks Brits - I would have my legs crossed as well but it hurts too much!

Aha.... Intetesting I'll now have to check but I only have 5 resistance settings so I use the spinning one, which enables me to move through the gears to change the resistance rather than loading the flywheel

This heavy snow's not all bad, I was the only one in the pool at 6.45am this morning. Nice.

About to dive into something about as crazy as Ironman.  Do I hit the "register" button?  Sprint tri on Saturday, May 18, then about a one hour break, followed by an Olympic on the same day.  Next day, the 19th, is a half-iron race.  You get a discount if you do all 3 as well.

I returned to training last night with a gentle 2 mile run, felt pretty relaxed and my chest seemed fine.Will test again with a run at lunch. Hopefully ease back in this week, busy at the Manchester triathlon show all weekend and then hit the ground running and back on the plan on Monday.

Go for it IY




Bib tights and overshoes arrived form Wiggle today, first time using either - cosy Nursey!  The tights seem rather short, in body and leg, but we'll see how much they stretch once they're on.

Are you speaking in a slightly higher key Nursey??

 Thankfully not Melds.  Perfect fit, but you'd think the Wiggle site would mention that they come with an integral Wonderbra.  Oh well, hubby likes them.

Overshoes - what a revelation! Warm feet 

Brick done, 45 bike, 15 run.
