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

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!

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!

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.

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.

BBT - Alpkit do a great headtorch, I use it for running on unlit roads and it copes really well.

16/01/2013 at 10:35

Cheers TB will check it out.

+1 for the alpkit. Got one for crimbo and really like running in the dark.

+1 for Alpkit

I can buy a new one for the price of the fancy dan battery in my old torch!

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!
