8 miler for me today in some sleet and other precipitation.  Was going to beg off after waking up a bit sick and looking at the weather.  But a friend hit me with "HTFU" so I went out and got it done.  Glad I did.

Nice one IY. It's always good to HTFU.

I wonder if Rafi was riding around the Chilterns today when he gave up after the viz was so poor he lost sight of his garmin.

This was my battle with the elements today.

Nice report Cat 

Hats off to anyone out and about this weekend, surely spring cant be too far round the corner

Well done IY-glad we dont have tha weather down here;

This w/e I did my first transiction: 30 minutes on the turbo (8min Z2 & 2min Z3 x3), followed by 18 minutes on the treadmill and a long stretching sessions after. It took me one minute from turbo to treadmill (with shoes change and Garmin sport reset). I know it isn't the real think (as I did it indoor) but does it sound reasonable timing wise...?

Had a very lazy weekend  only a bit walking and some core work ... but i did pick up my new car 

18/03/2013 at 08:55

So then.  Day 1 of my 24 week plan which begins (of course) with a rest day ????

Iron Donkey: what plan are you following?

Thanks Melds.

ID - always best to start with a rest day.

Plinsky - not bad. Don't forget you'll need to dump you helmet, grab running cap etc. I don't bother with elastic laces for LD events, rather ensure the trainers are on tight.

You lot have been busy.

I'm on a rest day and I spent it learning about wound management, including (among other things) how to use maggots to clean wounds. 

Schools here are closed tomorrow because of the snow.
