I think I've done too much bike this week and/or need to toughen up. Sudocrem is my friend just now
my Paper Shop is less that 1/2m away but I made it to just under 3m by taking the long route there i.e. upto and through the next villiage then back! I then get my paper (and visit the butcher - oxtail stew now cooking ) then walk home as a cool down
first hour on the turbo done
First Seren? How many more are you doing?
thats it.2nd hour done and I'm quitting............can't take any more
slipped 3 times walking to paper shop this morning. It's now ice out there.
Plus for the last 30mins it's been snowing.
Snow on ice - awesome
Should be doing a swim today but that so isn't going to happen. Cross trained moving snow instead
we haven't had any more snow since friday...........but it looks no different to friday out.....
normally would really enjoy a rest day on a sunday...........but raring to go out in the snow for a run as soon as eldest leaves the house
I'm now looking at those yaktraks things - but by the time I get them the snow would have gone!
got some from asdas a couple of years ago...........can't remeber where i put them.....be good for when the snow turns to ice
asda?! Seen them on Amazon & not too expensive but given how much snow/ice we get is it worth it? I can turbo instead of run, snow I can use trail shoes on (they were fine yesterday)
they were in asda recently...less than a tenner...........i have found one.....thats helpful...
i am happy with trail shoes........
just worried about tomorrow and if the leisure centre and schools are open.......if not then it will muck up the start to my week...............but it will only be week 7 so still early days
I teach and my sch never closes but it's getting there. I nearly lost the car on Friday and that really scared me. Took twice as long to get home and the road was clear and it was daylight. Staff leave at 5.15 M-Th so dark and rush hour. I don't want to be on slippy roads with lots of traffic - scary and will take forever to get home But feel guilty if I don't go in - can't win.
If I can't go in I'll happily turbo or walk across the icy slowly (warm up/cool down!) and go for a run!
As I said I cross trained clearing to car/drive around the car earlier. I may be having a snow day tomorrow at this rate
way I see it is snow is a LOT harder to run/ride in so therefore must be worth a lot longer in real terms!
Really well done
