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.

Have too find myself a XC bike only got my downhill bike still and sod pedalling that near anything that resembles a hill going up..... Ironcat I think you should do the joker sportive in Salisbury, reason for this is that I'm doing it.... Come on its only 150k also doing a 16 miler road race tommoro.... Not tapered for this so should be interesting ...

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

i'm not going out today, not worth having a slip. I'll be replacing my long run with another turbo session. Hope it melts soon

Morning all.

Chilly in Norfolk but roads were nice and clear when i dropped the wife off at work this morning.
So
1 hour swim, 30 min bike & a cheeky 2 hr 45 min run (calf permitting)

& i'm not looking forward to doing any of it

Bah! Flew back into the UK this morning - a half hour flight and a temperature drop of 14 degrees. At least we seem to be snowless.

Good luck to anyone going outside today. I have a date with the rollers and Skyfall (which I've yet to see) and perhaps a recovery swim thereafter.

Too snowy in Coventry, having a rest day, I feel that by watching the xcountry on BBC2 I'm there in spirit

24/03/2013 at 13:31

Need a run, roads too icy ... so I see lots of mud in my future!

Very snowy here but managed a turbo/run brick. Fortunately there wasn't too much ice so not too slippy underfoot.

I've posted an update on my Ironman blog.
