Made the most of being off for a week with the kids and got a longer session in the pool this morning 4k done, and a 8mile run tonight. Looking forward to going to see my mum in the yorkshire dales on Wed get some hill training miles on the legs.

Lovely run this morning, cold, frosty, watching the sun come up.  This is what it's all about.

Blimey !!  Everyone out enjoying 'spring'  ??

60 miles biked ...fabulous day for it

45 mins on the rollers this lunch in the car park at work.  That's almost certainly what this isn't about.

Masters swim class tonight.  I'm told the highpoint of the session will be a 200m and then a 400m time trial.  Oh yipeee!

400 and then a 200 is the CSS test ... if that is what they are doing Donkey

Evening all

1 hour brick session tonight. Nearly came a cropper on the bike when the front light suddenly went off and left me travelling down a hill in total blackness.

Certainly a saddle clenching moment. Remember to connect light to battery properly next time.

What's a CSS test?

SD, scary.

So, Chelsea Buns are acceptable recovery food, right?  Right?

Good swim session last night, sprints.  Hard work.

I had to do one of them to get onto a buidling site......or was that a CSCS test???

20/02/2013 at 09:05

Meldy - Yep, CSS test indeed.

Spoons - Here you go

Strange question.... are credit cards OK after they've been through the washing machine? Must remember to check pockets on cycle top and remove emergency cash and credit card before I wash them!!

should be ok Raf, as I don't think the washing machine should effect the magnetic strip on it ???

have woken up with a stonking headache today - mostly sinus related - so am feeling a tad crap. am going to have today as a rest day (though I may well play around with kettlebells later and do core stuff if my head doesn't feel like it'll explode)  Bah

That's crappy Fraggle, hope you feel better as the day goes on.

Raf, I reckon it'll be fine.  My granny once washed £200 in my papa's trouser pocket - not a good outcome.  Now there's a thread idea - "What have you put through the washing machine by accident?" Mine would be an REM ticket.

Swim and run planned for lunchtime.

Donkey .. what was the outcome then??

Spoons, get it done every couple of weeks, its a good test ... you too Nursey & Fraggs !!

I dont want to tempt fate but I dont think I have ever put anything throught the wash that wasnt supposed to be there ...

20/02/2013 at 19:36
Meldy - 200m: 3.20 / 400m: 6.58.

Getting better while actually enjoying the time swimming. It's no longer something "I just have to do".

Good stuff Donkey!   DId you do it that way round?   Should be 400 and then 200 which will prob give you a different result

Yes ma'am.

Really short of time today, so a quick swim - 4 x 250m trying to focus on my core and not dropping my hips - and a 30 min run straight after.
Have just unrolled the yoga mat to do some core work and stretches.

I am feeling very positive about training and O-day at the moment  

20/02/2013 at 19:56
Actually we did. I've since read we should have done the 400m first.

Will try the other way next time.
