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)

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

2 1/2 hours done on the towpaths, trails and cycle routes around stoke. It wasn't quick - average 9mph, but the way I see it is another 2.5 hours of saddle time. I'm sure if was road or TT it would have been a fairly speedy ride
Mind you, if it had have been road or TT I'd have been on my arse!

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

LSR with Horse this morning, 12.2 miles in 2hrs 4 mins avg 10.4 m/min, in Z2 really chuffed with that as it was an undulating run. All done on the road and icy in places so had to be carful at times.

great training  going on

10m in 1h 18m. HR was a little difficult to control on the snowy trails, anyone else find the same?

I don't think i have seen this discussed yet but anyone up for a bike course recce in early June? I kmow it is a little early but Mrs Stanners is an organisational nut so i want to get it in the calender (it is not official until it is down in ink).

son has his last GCSE (for now) on Wednesday. His school is closed today so he's using the time wisely and is still in bed!

2 hours turbo done yesterday. Glad the ironman's not done on one as I would definitely fail.

I guess this weeks going to turn into a swimming one. Don't think it's safe enough to run but might try.

12 mile Z2 run done in the snow yesterday.  took 1h 50min but was a bit hard going at times.  was planning to swim this morning but roads not clear yet so am going to take a rest day instead and try and fit it in later in the week.

 walked to the camping shop and now have yaktrax

21/01/2013 at 14:42

Good news I caved and ordered som yaktrax pro, so in 3-5 business days I can predict there will be no snow or ice left near Norwich.

At least it means that either way I will be able to run by the end of the week.

Tried out my new Garmin Edge 810 on the Turbo yesterday, fab bit of kit very pleased although Heart Rate monitor needs some tweking as it was either way too low or way to high! Loved raing my virtual partner got me shifting a bit more than I would have otherwise and my average HR worked out in Z2 so I'm calling it good.

Aiming for a full weeks traning this week althogh I can turbo instead of run until the snow goes or yaktrax arrive.

Am working away and didn't bring training plan. Could someone tell me what fink prescribed for week 7 of competitve please. Tues to Friday just running and cycling required.

Am going to concentrate on swimming as missed both sessions last week and there is nice pool in hotel but want to at least match the other sessions.
