You guys killed it today.  Centuries? 14-15 mile runs?  Too soon for that

Top job Raf!  Working up to my first century ride.  

Good training everyone!

Ran 8 miles in heavy rain today, quite enjoyed it.  Looking forward to a bit of sun, though.  

Hoping to bike in the morning, but weather forecast is, surprisingly, shat.

Ok, ok, I'll let you lot off then.  I'll be doing the same in 2014 when CDA is in June.

Glorious sunny 18 degree day in good old Norfolk. Pity i also pulled something in my hip at the allotment yesterday so not sure if i can go too far on the bike now, grrrr.

Hoping a little swim will loosen things up.

Think i'm just going to have to stay indoors wrapped in bubble wrap till next week to avoid any further injury.

Tim, crack on mate. Someone said to me 'if it aint raining, it aint training'. Did think that was holox myself but there you go

Wonderful work everyone.  I on the other hand have had a few weeks of easiness due to work trips overseas and other stuff that's taken me on an 8 hour round trip commute.


Thankfully I still have 21 weeks until my half so there is still plenty time to loose the weight and get fit.


In truth, my head is already thinking about 2014. Will it be Germany, Austria or Switzerland?  Oh the decisions!


On a different note (and most probably on another thread) does anyone here have any mentor / mentee experience? Am interested in anyone's thoughts on the subject.


Enjoy the warmth people

Weekly update, not a great deal of excitement this week

You've made a good decision there SD. Your fitness will not increase in that time frame. It's also a good reminder to myself.

I've been running this week, but the Achilles is still not right and after this weekend I'll swap the running for swimming. Though there is the small matter of a local 10km on the 6th May...

(((Fraggle))) Hope you are OK

Fraggle, be well.  Did the idiot stop?

The idiot was also on a bike, he pulled out onto the road in front of me without looking then went straight across the road into me. I shouted 'look out' but 'twas too late.  he did stop (briefly), said 'sorry I didn't hear you I'm off to the doctors' then b*ggered off


anyway, have been seen and sent home with a list of 'what to look out for if you're concussed'. My gp wants to see me back at the end of the day to make sure I'm ok, so i do at least feel well looked after by the NHS


got a huge headache mind........

Oh Frag, how crap.  (((((((Fraggle))))))). You're not alone tonight, I hope? Recover quickly.

Good news here - went for a swim today and not a single grumble from the back.  It's feeling good, apart from a bit of stiffness first thing in the morning.  Looks like the sportive this weekend is on after all.

Great news you're ok, Fraggle - heads and pavements are not a good combination
