Are you a S Walesr Rocco?  More the merrier

Just had a really good 2.5 turbo session ... not quite the same a cycle in the mountains but giving the current weather it did just fine.

Managed 2 hrs on the turbo yesterday.  Boring.  I had a flare up of the calf trouble that bothered me late last year so I was pleased to get off.

Ran 2 hrs this morning in the snow and ice.  Fantastic to train outside.  I sank waist deep into a drift at one point.

*dribbles at thought of cider*

Anyway ... I gave up trying to run in the snow at HR this morning. The plan was to check out the roads to make up my mind if I was brave enough to drive the 20m to work

Slower than when I was full of cold - damn hard work but toasty warm in my Aldi base layers

well done Pix...  resting today here, but up early to get ahead of the carnage on the roads.  More snow tonight in Kent, although I suspect we are all getting used to it now so don't care.

I'm chickening out of my commute to work. Derby has a worse forecast than home. Son's sch has closed and I don't want to get caught on the M1

OK so I'm a wimp driving  but I still was out running this morning

Have a question about maintainance, or during race repairs specifically. I now have had a few punctures and know I can cope with changin a tube mid race but as far as anything else goes i'd be a DNF at the moment, other than maybe the chain coming off.  My father in law is quite good at bike maintainance what should I know before race day. (Reading Holgs book at the mo and he fixed a broken chain....)

They do have an in-race mechanic, who the marshalls can call to help you if you have an issue, they have certain spares.

is that a don't worry

Well 2hours solid on the turbo yesterday Boring. Couldn't have done any more. I love the snow, but.....please melt

So, there could be a lot of swimming this week, unfortunately. Might put the trainers on and see.

Got the only car in the house that will make it up and down the hill where I live so could be a bit of a taxi service for my family members.

TB I don't even know how to change a puncture  or I probably do but it's been about 5 years since I did one that I could probably walk home quicker

TB - snapping a chain was just one of them things, it would be very unusual to happen to you. Mind you I've had a lot worse happen, as you'll see as you read on.I think I'm just cursed.

Fixing a chain mind you is a fairly easy task with a chain splitter.

As Flat Foo...ted says they have a mechanic that can possibly help, but you could lose significant time in them getting too you.

The only other thing I would suggest if you have a saddle bag is put a small roll of tape in there in case a spoke goes, you can always tape it to the next one to get you home.

I always get my bike serviced a couple of weeks before a bit race for a bit of reassurance.  Had a blow out on one sportive though, not a lot I could do to fix that!
