Morning RD! Cracking effort! With IM training that will start to fall rapidly! Well done!

I have Audiofuelled with Chrissie for an hour.  Now have to mop the sweat off the floor.

G'day all


Just a wet and wintery 7mile run for me 

Taking the dog to her physio session this afternoon

I discovered today that if i remove my bike from the turbo trainer it can be used as a form of transportation. not sure it will catch on though.

nice 48 miles, warmer and drier than was forcast and found a nice stretch of closed road where I could practice using the tri bars. too scared to use them at the moment when theres traffic about.

oh, and at this mornings weigh in just 1 kg to go and I will no longer be a fatman.

Good work running dog

Just been for a grim 2hr 15min ride. Worst ride i've had in a long time. Taken me over an hour to stop shivering, cold & wet.

Pleased i didnt bin the ride, despite thinking of it every 5 minutes.

Honk, i was the same with my tri bars, you wont think anything of it after a couple of goes. If your way too wobbly though, just fit them a bit wider.

Well done anyone who's making a training effort today, it's not nice.

Nice to know, sausagedog, I was much more confident after practice. Lot of potholes around though which I wouldn't want to hit on the bars.

its getting worse, temperature is 1.5-2C above normal-  damn mr frag and his germs - think it'll be a sleep for me rather than a run today   (this is after sleeping for 10hours last night, should have known something was not quite right)

Now snowing in Norwich so i guess my ride could have been worse.

frfaggle - lots of rest and fluids, get well soon

I have done a spinning class, masters swimming session and a 2 hour fast walk in the yucky weather

+1 to Mathschick there Fraggs ... dont fight it

I am steeling myself for a long bike tomorrow although I am favouring a 3 out/2 in ratio of hours at the moment!

Havent done anything day, just off nights and didnt sleep that well so had a lazy afternoon

Should really be getting my ironing out of the way but I need surgically removing from the settee !!

I make a point of never sitting on the sofa until it is time to relax in the evening as I know I willl never get up again!

Am not fighting it you'll be pleased to know. Wen ill I tend to sleep myself better, and am having trouble staying awake at the moment (Having had a power nap earlier!). If Ireland/France was more exciting I wouldn't be struggling so much....

It is a bit droll isn't it!

Nearly safely through the fog of Man Flu.  Unusually for me, I've taken plenty of rest, slept lots and eaten really well.  90 min run today - a trawl through my training diary shows this to be the longest (in duration)I've run since the '08 Paris Marathon

My long bike tomorrow 2.5hrs, long swim and weights today... I'm not really keen on taking the TT bike out in shitty weather, but it'd that or the singlespeed and with my gearing I won't be doing that!

I do hope there's no snow here and it stays try, I seem to finally have reached a size were I can wear my new pirate cycling jacket so at least that's something to look forward to!
