I treat myself to new kit all the time so nothing there, the bank manager must love triathletes . Got the yellow and gold in the post yesterday, need to get down to racing weight now to do it proud and so I don't need to suck in the gut
Went to circuits for the first time last night, was quite fun, but the leisure centre looks like it is going to be busy for the next few weeks so not looking forward to having a busy pool for tonight's swim, bloody new years resolutions
BBT, My thoughts exactly, swimming pool has been a bloody nightmare since back to work, wish people would give up on the resolutions already. Guess good thing is it only takes 30 mins to clear so last half of the swim its back to the "normal" crowd who know each others pace and move out each other way.
I'm also awaiting new kit from the kit fairy and I'm sure i'll need to squeeze into it at first.
im back onthe horse Donner, training like its happening and then letting fate take care of it's own sh*t. Outlaw FB mentions that the email is comming for waitlist ( again ). I wish theyd just get on with it . Ill need 6 months to get the OH to agree to spend 12 hours at the side of the road watching me suffer. ( she normally just tag teams with the offspring and makes sure I suffer by the hour )
brick tonight and another attempt at morning missery tomorrow. ( perhaps less candle at both ends might aid my emergence from the warm softness of a duvet at OH my god o'clock. )
ear improving slowly. might be back in the pool come february.
JUST got the email from Outlaw - a place is mine as soon as I pay in the morning !
thats a fun summer then....
section 8 incarceration. ( for my own good no doubt )

I'm being a failure this week
2wks of sch hols getting up when I wanted, training when I wanted fine now back to a 5AM alarm and busy teaching week and kid germs and body is saying NO. Tuesday night I had too much stuff to do meaning yesterday AM I had to do school work not train and today I just went back to sleep for 45mins.
So far this week 1hr (2x30) Z2 runs
Hmmm 1hr 45 of bike (3 rides!), 30mins or run and 2 swims to get in think I may fail. Will aim for 30mins run in AM, long bike and long swim at weekend if hubby allows me!
yesterdays brick session done
todays bike session done ( but needing more )
then the toilet.
then somewhere dark, comfy and warm.
Pixie........Haven't you got the hubby on board......important foir the first one......last saturday mine had to go out just after 5 am for his long run so that he was back in time for me to go and meet broke for the training run/bike.......even though saturday is his main running day and i do try and make it a rest day....
welkl done Lard on getting in the session early.....
do you take your resting heart rate in the mornings Brit.............I have started taking it and it definitely showed that i was going down with something last week...( sometimes shows when overtraining )...and when i exercised my heart rate was well too high for a couple of days........
you then have the choice of resting more.slowing down with the training .... or just going to a higher heart rate...........i think you have to be careful with your choices......
I would keep an eye on it
Well done Sarge on getting in
Off to do my 2nd swim of the week. This will actually only be the first time I've done 2 swims in a week
If you are becoming ill your heart will know before you do, so perhaps the symptoms haven't shown yet?
EP - I am also a teacher, and made a decision that this week would be an easy week training wise because of the extra stress of being back at school. It has worked for me, and means I won't feel guilty about not doing sessions and will be fairly fresh for next week
you do need OH to be on board though or it will cause all kinds of problems
