too scared to drive to the pool so 45mins snow run for me too, lot slower and higher HR as the slippy bits were scary and the deep bits hard work! Still lovely to be out there.

More snow forecast for tomorrow so looks like just 1 swim this week - will do an elongated paper run tomorrow or turbo instead

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?

When you really, really need the toilet but your still three miles from your house??

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

I think I've done too much bike this week and/or need to toughen up. Sudocrem is my friend just now

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

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

thats it.2nd hour done and I'm quitting............can't take any more

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

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
