Slokey Joe - hope you're ok

well I cut my bike short and only did 35miles. Everything was warm apart from my toes.. Followed up with a 4 mile run to finish the week off

As the plan called for a 4hr bike and I only did a 3hr turbo yesterday, decided to extend my run today. Plan was for 90minites but ended up running a snowy, hilly, cold 2hrs and managed to cover 25k.

Happy halfway point fellow Finkers!

Umm only managed a 2 hr turbo, so much for a big training weekend. I blame the OH and his DIY. Here's the deal, I'm sat on the turbo whilst he is putting up coving and traipsing in and out and spreading plaster everywhere. The mess is so off putting that I had to get off the turbo 2 hrs early to clean it up. Then I was starving so I thought I'll have a Sarnie and then get back on the turbo. By the time I had finished my sarnie my mojo had deserted me. I did think I might get back on the turbo tonight but alas The Goonies have got in the way.

Planned a 4 hour ride, then weather, and couldn't quite face a 4 hour turbo, or a 2 x 2 hr turbo come to that, so swam instead and will have another try tomorrow ...

After yesterday's MTBing my warm shower was great, then once dressed I still had that cold feeling! Warmed up much better after today's run.

(If the truth be known, I'm just quite nervous about taking myself so far from home in these longer rides ... I still feel quite new to 'proper cycling' and am scared about being such a long way away, on my own. But I have to go out of the city in order to avoid stop-starting with traffic ...
... it doesn't help that a very seasoned rider I know has just had her elbow re-built after a fall ... erm - off to bed to HTFU, I guess )

2Hr Turbo Sat and 2hr Turbo Sunday plus a 1.30 run so all done just not quite as it should have been. Must have stopped every 30 mins on the 2nd turbo session, had been banished to the kitchen and all that yummy food around me was too much of a distraction.

Weather for this weekend doesn't look to be any better.

4 hr ride this morning with a very slow 11 mph average, but in a savage wind which, quite frankly I feel quite pleased to have survived!

I must say, my pirate jacket did a very good job of keeping the wind out - even when my neoprene gloves and shoe covers didn't!

Managed 12.5 hrs last week in this weather.  Quite proud of myself 

Hour swim this morning done and a 75min interval session on the turbo this evening.

I would ask where is everyone but I'm going to presume you're all out training.

Really am fed up of this weather now, forecast is awful and finished this mornings run in snow flurries. I know I'm luck to be able to run and not be stuck in because of snow drifts. Although had no power at home Mon night and none at work all day yesterday so it's not been plain sailing either.

Trying not to have another wibble due to cancelled events and realising there's not that many weeks left now. Ah well fall back to the plan of keep on training and following fink and I will get there.

Hope you're all OK and coping with this horrid weather. At least next week it will be light enough to train after work... weather permitting!

Hi AliB - I'm not out training Actually I have just been out for a 3 mile run which should have been longer, but I'm sooo tired. Am having a cut back week because I've got a half marathon on sunday but it's not quite cut back fink style. I don't think an hours cut back is enough for my old bones to notice so whereas I meant to cut back a lot more than that, I think because I'm so tired I'm going to cut back even more and hopefully have more energy an go next week

Legend, Seren! Completely tapped, too. Have none of the magazines or websites done a feature on you yet? Something like "Barmy bastards who make you grin"?
