I tend to do the bulk of my training on my 4 days off and lesser sessions when I am at work, I can fit 1 session in before lates, a good day before nights and usually struggle after earlies ..  you find what suits & fits your lifestyle, and I am an old git too

I want to get out for a run, but it's not safe on the roads around here in this weather.  Everything will be back to normal next week.  It WILL.

Interesting thread regarding training and rest days. I currently train six days a week although they're not huge long sessions. I'm never quite sure what to do for the best as more training=less family time=bigger guilt trip.

Looks like I picked a good week to go back to Guernsey. Here on the island it's 13 degrees and sunny. I'm off for a quick sea swim with the Mrs, toddler and thermos in tow.

Hope you had a good swim, ID. 

Had a fun MTB today, along canal and up to Folly Tower and back.  It was so muddy and slushy up there that I had trouble pedalling *downhill*!  Now in post-workout ache zone.

Evening all.

Paced my daughter round park run for her first sub 30 of the year. Then went out for a 40 mile bike ride round the countryside. Snowed most of the time and was really windy but i didnt find it that bad. Guess i'm just getting used to training inshite weather.

Here Melds!  Have had loads of family stuff to deal within the last few days, still in a kind of limbo until my uncle gets a biopsy date and then a diagnosis.

I'm still not 100% over this flippin' virus - keep getting a funny feeling in my chest, not quite palpatations, but not right . Anyway, have walked loads today, and got a bit out of puff yomping up a hill with the hound. Have plans for a gentle mtb session tomorrow morning, then I have the delights of going to a Diving competition in Crawley with No2 son (4 hours of sitting in a boiling hot room and hoping he dives well and doesn't come away disappointed)

4 hrs of a steam bath might not be a bad idea !!!

Rest up!

2.5hours around Swinley forest today. New trails are looking good. Very tired now, but warm and dry at last.

Twas a bike JT, though I used to do some long runs there, round and back. When I can find corkscrew it is enjoyable.

Good idea Melds. Some of the 'secret' i.e. non-publicised trails have been worked very well and are all interlinked. Should be nicely completed for the summer. Instead of tribal knowledge of where to go it'll be more like a trail centre.

Even with the rain of late there was little surface water on the new trail surfaces.

Ah.....nothanks That is way too far for me to cycle this year. I may get up to 40km race-wise.

After taking wed and Thursday off (due to work) I managed to get a QC session on Friday, bootcamp yesterday and planning an hour run today... Have the rest of the week planned with next rest day planned for Easter Sunday (when lent will end and will be finally able to enjoy a glass of bubbly!).

Fraggles, keep resting and don't go back too soon
