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

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.
