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

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.

I started a jounrey, that may lead to IronMna in 2014 or 2016 myself. I have odne a couple of short ocurse events and hav this perverse desire to go full distance!

Been doing some running over winter but not enouhg in last few weeks. 

Got myself going enough to do a turbo session yesterdya and actually felt ok, so planned a run this am (whihc i did) thouhg only a short one to allow for afternoon turbo....but have come down with light man flu...runny nose and feel 'heady'....typical!

 

Am still toying wiht a turbo session but i suspect it will leave me feeling worse, especailly tomorrow so may use dsicretion to have 48 hrs off before the start, starts again.

Hour's run and half hour 100+ rpm on turbo.  Rest day tomorrow!

Have just spent 40 mins on the turbo getting sweaty with Daniel Craig   it's amazing how a bit of eye candy can make time fly by   Big gear, low reistance easy spinning stuff and not getting too out of breath - so fingers crossed it doesn't set me back and I can start a slowly-slowly road to recovery.

 

Diving comp went well for No2 son; he's just moved up to the 12-13 age group, and came 6th in the SE regional comp, and he's qualified to go to the National finals in May, so he's well chuffed

and massive well done to your boy

Evening Brandon and welcome to the madhouse!

and evening to the rest of you

Glad the steam therapy worked Fraggle!   40 mins with Daniel Craig would never be enough I am afraid

Welcome Brandon.

So which 2014 Ironman are you going to sign up for? 

The Anglian down my way has places. Budgie on here is doing that one as well

Weekly update folks. Ended up running through a woodland battle again today

Welcome aboard Brandon.

I too spent the late afternoon with Mr Bond and the rollers.  Enjoyable.

As for my training plan, my 24 week plan actually starts tomorrow. Last week I miss counted.

Fool.

As for 2014, I'm thinking IM Germany or Switzerland. That said, with mini me no 2 on the way, that may be wishful thinking.
