I'm with you LB. People using "myself" and "yourself" instead of "me" and "you" is my current gripe.

Seren, English has a capital E!

Les boules, you are not alone my friend. Seeing basic grammar mistakes in published media gets my goat too.

Coming round to the fact I am a fair weather plodder. I detest training in this weather (TT in the shed, terrified on the run). 100% for the Intermediate plan so far (if you ignore the swimming) but i so wish this weather would "do one"!

Any tips on sticking i out other than HTFU!

 i will not be drinking this year at outlaw..i will be in bed by 8pm each night

Work commitments means i am averaging 1 swim session per week. Comfortable with where i am (2500 in 50m at a very managable effort level) but i will struggle to improve speed / efficiency given the frequency of my sets.

Averaging 13kmph in z2 for long runs and averaged 29kmph on last weekends 1h 45m bike so my concern is just swimming (and the effing weather). I really cant see my swim volumes increasing until OW starts again in April

stanners.if you have that base for the swimming i think you will be fine when it builds up in spring OW........

I'm so tempted to bin the yoga and try and get out on the bike,.............we only have very light snow falling that should stop soon....the weather does not look very promising for the weekend............I'm not sure i could do a long bike on the turbo........

Thick heavy snow stops play, can't run or bike in it, not worth risking your neck driving to the pool in it early doors or late at night either.

Could turbo but still not quite right after last weeks lurgy and since it's my chest that hurts I figure training is best left. But 2 weeks off, will this scupper my plans?

Loving my Yaktrax Pro in the snow ... highly recommended. Haven't slipped once, even on really icy stuff.

AB - better to rest now and be healthy for the heavier stuff later on, I reckon, and the weather is helping you to rest.

Feel your pain AliBear I have been laid low this week. Just starting to get some 50% sessions back on track with a view to a close to full week next week.

Thinking of a run-commute tomorrow to avoid any snow disruption and tick off the Friday run at the same time without having to be up too early.

Although i was keen to avoid it adaptation does appear to be the name of the game with IM training.

I think we all need a wee reminder like that, Seren.  
I've been a bit pissed off today because I'm feeling wiped out (monster headache and neck pain yesterday) and have decided not to train, and I won't be able to fit anything in tomorrow either.  
I need to remind myself that, in the grand scheme of things, an extra rest day at this stage is neither here nor there, and will do me good if I'm feeling ropey.

Right - now that I've justified lying on the sofa, I can get back to some quality blobbing!

Nothing to fret about, Stanners. You're fit as a butcher's dog and work-life balance will be re-established in no time. ONe good session a week will do you fine until then, mate .

and don't do anything silly with the bad weather..run off road if you are happy but otherwise there is no prizes for injury due to hitting ice..........

 this is a long road,,,,better to do a shorter treadmill or turbo just to kep going.( and hate them both ).........
