Seren, you are hard as nails!

Swim swum this morning.  50 zombie minutes in the pool, 70 lengths.

missed my swim this morning so that equals NO swimming at all this week!!! have rejigged diary to fit in 3 sessions next week to make up for my tardiness.  All i have to do now is motivate myself to GTFU and into the pool.  Why is it so much easier to run or bike first thing in the day than go swimming????

On the bright side, just done a 1 hour run in Z2 and covered 7.2 miles which for me is pretty good

In my opinion which isn't worth much Jammy.if you have to ditch some sesions then swimming is the best to miss.....,but then i'm biased

A much better looking week for me this week except I haven't run yet. My YakTrax arrived today so might give them a gentle test out in the dark tonight.

100% for this week, including 15k this morning. Now spending the evening dreading the 2.5h turbo session which starts at 6:30am tomorrow. Damn this weather!!!!

Yay 1 1/4hr run fine in the dark, snow and ice without any problems. Courtesy of Alpkit and Yaktrax. I'm feeling rather pleased with myself.

I used to use Sudocrem. Probably is it leaches out the shorts. Not a good look with balck shorts

So come on, who has joined the 2h.30m turbo club. Managed to average 27kmph and kept aero position for 30 minutes at a time, followed by 10 minutes upright. The last 45min were pure torture.

Decided to do it with the film Gladiator on. Potable DVD batteries ran out at 2h:15m mark. Anyone know how the film ends as i dont think i could put myself through that again?

Didn't manage 2 1/2 hours as I had to pick the kids up, but did 44.5 miles in 2 hours, so really happy with that! (Watched loads of episodes of 24)

Seren I put it down to peddling fast as it was fast and furious episodes! I hope it's not just a one off

you realise that 22.5mph average equates to a 5 hour bike split, which would put you as the first placed female and in around the top 10 of the blokes as well. i think you would beat Sandy by about half hour at least

Maybe you should consider rigging up your DVD to your aero bars on the day!

Dk I hav no chance of keeping that up for 5 hours, just as long as the cycle is around the 6 hr then I will be happy, as for Sandy a. I have no chance of getting anywhere near his time and b. do you really think he would let me chick him!!!

It's a lot better, thanks, boss - still bruised and swollen, but can walk without pain now, so panic over.

Planning to swim tomorrow, turbo and swim Mon and then brick Tues, so a short 15 min run might be ok by then ...

Yep did 2 1/2 hr turbo yesterday managed a lowly 32 miles but kept to HR so a good session. Was hellish though listened to podcasts but just could not get comfy. I'm another who needs to HTFU !
Club run to do this morning eek!
