Beachy done  

Gawjuss day for it, bit blustery and a bit lumpy

Well done meldy

Did the Suffolk Coast ultra. Lovely scenery. Quite hard work due to being fat and unfit but I got it done....

Coooool Melds, well done you.

I have spent the weekend at an Irish/Jamaican wedding - PAAAARTAAAAYYYY 
So I am feeling a little 'tired'  and quite blobby, but it was worth it.  I'm also suffering from boogieing-while-wearing-high-heels-induced DOMS in my calves.
Met a guy there who was a support runner at the Celtman this year and said it was completely mental, brutal conditions, but an epic day.

Well done to Nursey for fk knows

Tattoo appointment booked - post missus discussion tattoo will now be split into two so as not to dominate lower left leg

Challenge design on calf or above heel and swim bike run on ribs

So that will be no swimming for a while then. ..

So I need to become a cyclist in the next 9 months. And now it's cold and dark and the roads are covered in fallen branches etc. rumour has it ice and snow are coming and we will be getting the worst winter for years. What's the best plan? Spin classes? turbo trainer? Mountain bike?

Bepanthen - waterproof barrier nappy cream.

I love my turbo and use it a lot over the winter, but for a balanced view on the subject you should ask IronSossigeDog .  However, there is no real substitute for getting out on the road, which you will have plenty of time to do between winter and Outlaw (I'm assuming?).
I'd love a mountain bike, and would cycle outdoors much more in winter if I had one,  but don't have the pennies for that at present

Spoons .. mountain bike, will get you out in all weathers, good strength training and excellent for handling skillz
