Nearly 8 mile run on a nearly perfect morning.  Followed that up with a crumpet that the Budgie insist I try to find and luckily I did.  Quite tasty I must say!

Hot buttered crumpets. Mmmmmmmmmm. Was it an English crumpet or a Scottish one?

Instead of trying to guess, I'll just post a link to the picture and you can tell me what I ate.

Need a side-on view to see whether they're thick or thin 

16/02/2013 at 17:10

They were relatively thick.  A bit thicker than I was expecting.

I'm hungry now.

Of course you are.  You're in Ironman training.  Hunger seems to come with it.

Some further info on the Scottish/English crumpets.

mmmm I love crumpets, they are amazing with peanut butter (and I mean proper peanut butter not that horrible sweet stuff like sunpat) or marmite, or cheese. I never actually have peanut butter any more because eldest son is allergic to peanuts so they are banned from the house

Oh you poor thing - I could live on peanut butter, and yes, I recently discovered peanut butter and crumpets ...

... figured its got protein in it, so I'm allowed ...

well, if you buy the nice peanut butter, like, wholeearth then there isn't any added sugar, just peanuts, so what is wrong with that?

You lot been talking about food all day. What about your training?

Mathschick - only went for a 15 minute run in the Newtons, they felt really good. Website says you should just increase your running in them slowly until your used to them.
Will wear my normal trainers on tomorrows long run & use the Newtons on the weekly shorter ones for now.

Sossidge there is always the possiblilty of using your newtons for a warm up and then swapping to normal ones ... can be a bit of a pain but is useful in the early stages

Hope, I worry about you sometimes  

talking of minimal shoesies ... I have a pair of New Balance minimal jobbies and am using these in the gym for core & stability exercises, its adds a different level of hardness to the stablity stuff over wearing trainers which when you think about it are there to offer stability .. so if you are doing core & stability stuff at home make sure its barefoot  

Hoping to get out for a swim this afternoon when I wake up, the pool times can be a bit hit or miss at a weekend and after nights is never the best combination for me !!

Morning. Funnily enough I was talking to the guy in our local running shop and minimalist shoes. He's a good, long time runner. His words included: useless and rip-off.....
