Oh Fraggle, Fraggle, Fraggle...


 No more of that exercise nonsense for you until you're better, young lady.

Welcome back Plinksy

Fraggle, naughty

I knocked out a cheeky 15 mile run this morning. New distance PB. Did a 1.3 mile swim after that so now lying on the sofa to watch the Milan to San Remo. Dont envy those boys, weather looks bad.

1hr 38min run, 9 and-a-bit miles ("and-a-bit" because I realised the Garmin hadn't picked up a signal when I started, so I just ran until it said 4.5 miles).

Good going SD

weekly update



Thanks Nursey. Good run, my forerunner is a pain in the ass for picking up a signal sometimes.

Hows the neck 'exercising' ?

Had to take a break, was getting RSI

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

18/03/2013 at 07:30

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 ????

18/03/2013 at 08:57

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.
