I couldn't even open the garage to get to my bike this morning because the lock had frozen hard, so doesn't look like it will be coming out to play for the next few days, and the weekend looks like it will be getting worse
Same up here - planned outdoor bike has now become turbo.
going to be one of those days when everything conspires againgst me training..............
I will not be suprised if by bedtime tonight i didn't have to force today to be a rest day
I cycled to work, it was a bit icy, hoping it won't be tonight cos I won't be able to see it!
be carefull everyone!
honestly, a couple of adjusted sessions here will make little to no difference to the outcome compared to if you have to take significant time off having come off your bike in the ice!
Very true ...
How's the cat Mr Zuvai, lol.
without a doubt the worst thing ive ever smelt!
little sh*t bag!
Just checked and yep I am on the list of entries which means that despite wanting to stay in bed tomorrow instead of getting cold I will be up at 4:45 to do 75mins TT time.
That way I can justify the big steak and pud that I will have tomorrow night for hubby's birthday!!
Just checked the weather and it basically said "you will use the TT in the garage until the weekend when you will do an off road run and then get annoyed at the crowded pool for your 2nd swim this week. Enjoy" Or something like that -2 is the high for tomorrow!
freezing tonight for my offroad runwith headtorch.stayed on my feet.but brambles and bushed attacked me a bit...........managed an hour on the turbo earlier.so not as bad as i thought
I'm not brave enough to go off road even with my 32 LED head torch so much respect!
SJ thanks for the tip about hr monitor and changing batteries, been using a garmin soft strap but hr been shooting up into z6 and ending up walking trying to be good. Never even thought about the batteries. Couldnt change them on the soft strap but still had the old strap and put new batteries in that.
Now a happy chap as 1 hr brick completed all in z2 and no walking!!!
Looking forward to tomorrow nights run now, just to get myself into the pool in the morning for first swim in ages.
1hr 15 on turbo longest ever turbo session (insert yawn here) need to review tunes!
in garage but drink was still freezing cold and ice like
now running late for work
EP.......I love off road but no longer go on my own at night as i scare myself............My running club has started a torch run once everymonth or so ...., and its a great evening........it was supposed to be on road over the mountain last night but the ice made a lot of the tarmac leathal so the route changed more off road
TJ...did you make the pool
Well migraine and lurgy for me for the past 2 days. Now just lurgy and not too bad really but another day without training.
Looks cold out there.
Seren what head torch do you use? I need to get a new one.
BBT - Alpkit do a great headtorch, I use it for running on unlit roads and it copes really well.
Cheers TB will check it out.
+1 for the alpkit. Got one for crimbo and really like running in the dark.
I got my head torch from the local camping shop for £10 with 32 LEDs it's good but I've just been too nervous to go off road when dark.
Scared of tripping but also of unseen folks but hey I guess there aren't many weirdos about at 5am!
