Swimming yesterday with some more tumble turn practise thrown in at the end.  It is quite difficult to swim while laughing.

Been out for a run this afternoon.  5 miles, and Garmin says I averaged 9:12, which I am rather pleased with.  However, I think G may have had a wee technical hitch at the start as I apparently ran the first mile in 7:55:41.  This is unlikely for 3 reasons:  a) I have never, ever run a mile that quickly; b) It was uphill; c) when I turned to run back I did the same mile downhill in 9:23.  

But if it's on the Garmin it must be true, right?  Right?

Alas no Nursey - sometimes the sats are out to begin with, so it thinks you're somewhere else - I often start in the fields opposite my house, which means when I turn the corner at the bottom of the road, I'm often doing 4 mm pace!!

Picked the road bike up from the LBS after its service today - new bar tape, cables, bottom bracket, chain, rear cassette .... its all shiny and new looking  Look s too clean to take out and get dirty now!

Raf - please refer to Meldy's post to see what your answer should have been 

Unfortunately just that first mile was wonky, or I'd now be happily deluded and changing my name to Paula

Have been swimming on Wednesday (and think I convinced the lifeguard to do Outlaw  ), turboing last night (which went a slightly awry because I had Chrissie in one ear, but also had Masterchef on the telly which was a wee bit of a distraction), and running today, with no watch, which was lovely.

Have also had wee boy cat at the vet and he has broken a toe.  So he now has a splint and a big bandage, much to his disgust.  And a bill, much to my disgust.  I am in the wrong job.

No idea Melds, came down for breakfast and found him limping. Probably trying to scale the fireguard, curtains, bookcase ...

Been a bit slack lately, and a bit injured, but have blogged about rediscovering my motivation! http://www.runwalkcrawl.com/re-motivated/

Scribe, I think we've all gone through a bit of a dip after our IM this year! Good to hear you have a plan and a positive outlook for the months ahead.  How's the knee?

Been out for a short run today, 3 miles at 9:17min/m.  It seems I have overcome my "I run at 10min/m" mental block .  I have enjoyed scaling my running right back and starting again with a different mindset.  Maybe I needed to have my post-Outlaw major falling-out with running to make me take a fresh look at things. That and a hefty boot up the arse.

So the (very loose) running plan over the winter is an interval run, a tempo run and a LSR each week, varying the intervals and tempo for boredom prevention, and increasing the LSR gradually.  I'm even planning to swim and bike a bit in between .
