Welcome to the new nutters

Hope all the sick and injured recover soon

Have had a couple of pretty slack weeks training-wise, largely due to this bloody weather (and it's still snowing here).  I was getting really pissed off, but had a brilliant weekend catching up with family I haven't seen for far too long, and that gave me a real boost.

So today I have managed 40 mins of Chrissie on t' turbo followed by a run to the village and back, 3.07 miles / 29:38.  Running off the bike is so much better than running from cold.

ironwolf - could you put a surgical glove over your hand and tape it down with some duct tape or something if you are determined to get into water?

feeling shattered today so having a rest day and an early night

I've also decided to have a rest day, feeling really really tired, i think it may be that i know i need to work on the bike so i've been trying to double up on the fink weekday bikes, i've also been doing a bit more running than required with my sessions being an hour and a half instead of an hour. Writing this does make me want to get on the bike and HTFU but i think rest is in order.

A better day than I expected training wise considering the shit day I've had at work

- 2hrs 15min spin ... Including RPM and the 'best punk album ever' to get me going
- 30mins core

Had a DK-style rest day yesterday - 2.2km in the pool.

11.5km run with 7km tempo section tonight. Track Wednesday tomorrow!

A 45 min run late afternoon, and just back from an hour's swim with the tri club.  Aching but happy.  Food.

No Britney or Beiber?????

Although, I was putting a play list together the other day for a longrun and realised that most of the bands had at least one memeber who was now dead (from 'natural' causes not ODs)...... and I'd seen most of them play live! Sudden realisation I was getting old!!

Will, some great choices there.  Anarchy ... one of the best songs ever.  And Dury was a genius, read a biog of him recently.  

Though I never train to music, interesting to hear what everyone else does.  If I'm out running I love the silence & sounds of nature.
