Oh, I came down with something on about Wednesday and just felt awful.  Then I had to get very drunk at a friends 40th on the Friday which gave me a hangover from hell on Saturday, and everyone piled back to mine and didn't leave until late on Sunday!

I'm back focused on training now!!

Actually, I have pulled my achilles (again) so am off running, though not too bothered about that as I'll just cycle the run training.

 "Then I had to get very drunk at a friends 40th on the Friday " - I like your style, being forced to drink

Been a chilly few days, still managed to keep the grand slam of bike commuting going each week so far, bit concerned that the BBC is telling me to stay indoors tomorrow away from the killer snow

I did ask the gym if I could set up spin bike in the sauna - surprisingly they said no!

 I can see nothing that could go wrong with your suggestion. 

Weekend of turboing for a lot of folk this week I reckon.  That and sledging!! (fingers crossed please god!)

A weekend of turbo for me with a dog walk in between - she loves the snow but misses eating the grass!

Yes, pretty much identical conditions, lol.

I think potential mtb routes here would be equally as icy but I'm not planning anything until I see what happens when I look out of the window each morning.

I've missed a lot of training these last two weeks but work is work and I can pick it up now as best I can with the weather. I was also up to 3hrs 45 bike and 2hr run so I was ahead of Fink.

I think most of us are 'ahead' in many aspects, nonetheless the knowledge of what we have let ourselves in for

We get a few days or weeks or snow a year and you cant do any more than suck it up and move on to the next day

I too shall be leaving decisions to www.lookouthewindow.com

Excuse me for butting in, but with the Kit Fairy's guiding hand, I'm going to do an order so that a nice yellow golf umbrella with a fetching black logo might

a. Keep my supporter(s) dry / happy at Outlaw / Henley / Lanza (delete as appropriate)

b. Make them feel they're a part of this happy ship ...

c. Make them easier for me to spot

If you reckon you'd like one too, then pop over to the Pirate Umbrella thread and add yourself to the list (need another 7 for a minimum order of 25). Looking at around £18 plus postage - full details on thread ...

Update from the coal face:

Not been on the forum for ages are mega busy at work, to busy to do any worthwhile training .  On the upside if ever there was a race deserving to be blagged its Lanza

One thing that has crossed my mind is that it would be fun for a good bunch of us to meet up for a Lanza traning ride, perhaps some time late March?
