Running is officially quicker than driving. Five mile run commute this morning and I was the first one to work!

If those pavements ice up it might be a diffrent story on the way home...

So my Friday 95 min run will be in two halves. But at least I didn't have to get up at silly oclock to do it before I came in. I might make Friday run commute Fink Friday!

Long run done in lovely snow

My family and neighbours think I'm mad but tomorrow will be slush and ice...

Work commitments meant I missed my bike session yesterday so did it this morning instead on the turbo. Contemplating going out for a run in a bit as it looks quite nice out there in the snow. Haven't managed any swim sessions this week tho...need to have a rethink about how I incorporate the leisure centre pool timetable into my plan...

Jammy having the same problems getting into and motivated for leisure centre pool.

Taking a leaf out of the hardy souls with the snow running and plodded round a dark park and wood in the snow whilst daughter was at swimming club. Absolutely brilliant, not a soul around and just snowy paths, probably my favourite run of the year.

It's been a tough week. I didn't risk getting to the pool last night. I'm a run and bike down.
Looks like 2 hour turbo coming up this afternoon with short brick after.
Hope to tracks are ok for long rub tomorrow. I've dug the yaktraks out to try

2hr turbo done and just about to go for a run.

Pixie, what is an elongated paper run?

Long run with Parkrun this morning - 12.5 miles felt more like a marathon - good training, though. Rest now til Mon - yay!

convincing myself that this week can be a run specific week.......I did extra on the bike last week so not too worried if I can't do much on the turbo tomorrow.son is on it at the moment.trying out the new saddle...I have put a planet x one on it as thats the one i have on my road bike

Turbo session done - snow still coming down so not going to risk it outside on the bike.
Does sledging count as base training?

2 hours on the turbo logged too. Managed to maintain aero position for 25 minutes at a time so very happy. Follows 2.6k in the pool this morning so all in all a good day.

Now I have finished the Band of Brothers box set I have been looking for entertainment to help pass the time whilst on the turbo and found this Podcast

Just listened to the Crowie episode which was quite interesting. Comes across as a decent Aussie (rare, I know). Any other recommendations out there?

IMtalk is always good for a laugh Stanners and lots of good interviews too
