Happy wee Nursey

Went for a swim today and our local GB age grouper was there too. We've not been at the pool together for ages, and the first thing she said to me was, "You've put a lot of work into your swimming. You've improved so much I didn't recognise you at first". She's someone who's always given me good advice and encouragement, so I was pretty chuffed. (Ignoring the implication that my swimming was previously shite  !)

Did my first swim in 3 months yesterday - boy was it hard work!!

And found out today that as part of a one million pound re-furb of the gym,  that nice Mr Branson is getting us half dozen Watt Bikes this week - that's the winter training sorted out!!

Right, that's quite enough of the Bollinger and Pringles.  Back to work people.

Bollinger and pringles - didn't realise you were such a classy lady, Nursey!!

I've got one more day of excess before getting back to reality and, possibly, training!

Had a play on the new WattBikes in the gym today - they obviously have power meters in the crank as it displays the power for each leg. My left leg is slightly weaker, which is no surprise, but was amazed how the difference increase with increased power output.

Also got slightly higher output at higher cadence, but with same HR!!

Quite interesting all this science stuff
