Tipping it down here.  I was going to mention the wind too Podds, makes it much harder work.

Do we have a club theme tune now?  I love it.

Back to training later after a 2 day migraine! I found a hill around the corner, so am stupidly planning to run up and down it for half an hour, either before or after I test out my new turbo trainer set-up (I've put a little table in the basement ready to house my laptop and speakers to keep me going) Nice and sunny here today, but live in a city and nervous about getting lost!

Mixed week for me. Hardly anything done in the week and tried to run and cycle long at the weekend.

Run is getting better. Did 9 miles at an average pace of 10:45 miles with a 9 min walk and 1 min walk from the start.  Last time I did that far (end of Dec I think) the pace was 11:00 min miles.

On the bike yestererday and I did my longest ever ride at 3:30 hours. My pace dropped back from the last couple of weeks and birthday beers the night before certainly didnt help.

Aiming for consistency this week. No excuses, kids are back in school and work looks sensible.

Sea Biscuit, great idea on the turbo table.

I've had a good 2 weeks, in terms of fitting all the sessions in, don't think I've missed any

Just cut short this weekends long ride though, as I got a bit scared of too much ice on roads

Sorry to hear about your back Andy, rest up and hopefully you'll be training again real soon
21/02/2012 at 19:47

Take care Andy. 

I've not done anything this last 4 days.  Been a bit pre-occupied with a formal grievance that I've had to submit at work.  I've re-done it about 10 times and its finally done at 9 pages. Emailed off so just got to wait for the fall-out now.  A good bit of training is just what I need to take my mind of it I reckon.  Swim lesson tomorrow.  I like my swim lessons.

eesh that doesnt sound so good Soups.. hope it all works out ok... Training is always a welcome diversion from all the crap life has to throw at you.... unless of course as in AndyB's case the crap that life throws actually prevents the training .. (hope your back gets sorted mate).

Have had to come to Prague for a couple of days for work.. just been out for a wander and accross from the hotel.. a TRI shop ... i'm taking it as a sign that i should buy something  

21/02/2012 at 22:10

Prague - lovely! Deffo a sign there Slag.

I've got another job application in just in case this grievance backfires. It would be twice as far to cycle and has a swimming pool on site - sounds perfect!

It's not all glamourous. The posh hotel my colleague booked for last night only had a 9m pool. Good job I was taking it easy!

Then a £2.50 charge to deliver our beer to our table from the bar!

Hooray its Friday.

I weekend without significant social distraction so noooo excuses not to train. I am contemeplating my first group ride with a local tri club on Sunday. Very scared 

24/02/2012 at 20:13
Well, I have another 10 days before the specialists tell me whether I'll ever be able to run again - and I've got my goal for 2013! It's just been announced that Challenge Roth, my very favourite long triathlon, will be the European long course championship next year, so all being well, that's where I'll be next summer. Fingers and toes crossed.

Enjoy the ride tomorrow Muffin. I have ridden with the local tri club a few times and it has been a great experience.

I'm sick of all this spam. Every thread has some guff by this list fairy, whoever she is?
25/02/2012 at 22:55

leave the list fairy alone - she is essential 

 anyway, go have fun Muffin.......our tri clubhave fast and less fast rides -

the less fast rides are pretty friendly, and you dont get left behind.......
The fast rides on the other hand........  you need to know your way home

I am they will look after you
