For those not yet up to IM
Oh Chili - poor you! Have a bath or two to rest those achey muscles and dose yourself up and rest. Maybe you haven't got over last weekends illness? Take as much time as you need, as you could just make it worse. I know it's hard, but I had a WHOLE WEEK off (apart from Zumba, which doesn't count). And actually it wasn't the worst thing in the world.
When is Ribby Hall and what distance are people doing?
Flippin' heck Yersinia - a mini tri AND circuits - I didn't make the link that it was all in one day! I did do 20 minutes of intervals on the bike before circuits, but it's no mini-tri!
I'm just off out for a run in the sun. I've been looking forward to it all week and work is threatening to put me off going (so much to do!) but I'm determined to get out there before I have three days of rain.
See yous all later
chili... take a bit of rest time
going for a swim this eevning.. then doing my long run tomorrow evening hopefully.. light permitting.. due to do around 14 which is hard when i liev in the country so lots of unlit lanes.. will try and get out of work on time and get a bit of running done before light goes and then do loops around teh actual town!
then going to go to a swim videoing session my tri club are running on sat morning ! really interested to see my weak points!
Enjoy your well earned rest, Chilli! Don't go back to it too early, no matter how tempted you are.
Hey, JEvaNs: Ribby is 400m pool swim, 18km bike, 5km run. Details are up now on ukresults if you want to enter. I'll be there! My Fylde Tri Club Pink and Blue top clashes beautifully with my ginger bonce, so it's not hard to spot me!
Running tonight on Blackpool prom - 10k in a fierce cross wind straight off the sea, by the sound of what's happening outside my front window now. Oh well, Fylde coast events are always windy so I suppose its good practise. At least I can have a pizza without feeling guilty afterwards! Hurrah!
Thanks guys and yes I've been very good and not attempted any training. Have been dosing myself with vitamin C and paracetamol and got through a whole box of tissues. I think I might be an endorphine junkie though, cos I'm not coping very well with the lack of training this week.
Yersinia - that is very impressive
Bootsie - all the best with your 14 miles.
Hi Gang..........................Bootsie.... be careful out there in the dark it's bad enough in the daylight.
ST ....have managed to get out for a run yet?
Gav....... I bet you will look a picture in your clubs colours
Had a good day today, did my own little Tri, biked to and from the gym, 12 miles, 1k swim and a 2mile run off the bike..
The legs felt really heavy after the bike but my tims were about the same.
What you all been up to?
silvewr trucker.. same aim here.. would love a sub 2hr!
JEvaNs, its only because i'm doing the brighton half marathon in 2 weeks!
Nothing until March but then it kicks off a bit...

Cor, seems like everyone has a busy schedule!
I didn't skate yesterday - spent a long time walking, and then arrived at Ally Pally Park too late to get a decent sesh in, so looked at the ducks instead. But I reckon I walked about 9 miles, so it's still cross-training.
Today I went swimming. However, my ankle started to ache and I realised it was bruised. I think I did it when I leant my bike against the porch the other day, and it slipped and the chainring rammed into my ankle. I didn't think I'd done any harm, but it's quite sore now. So I just swam my winterswim distance and a couple of cool down lengths of breaststroke and called it a day. I shall have to see how much it hurts in the morning. It's not dreadful, but I thought I had a better chance of making it out tomorrow if I didn't push it on today's swim.
Yes mummy Jevans I have been very good and no training again today. Am feeling a bit better this afternoon and my nose is working again. Wow - impressive weights session!
Shall see how well I sleep and I may do a slow Parkrun with my big girl tomorrow morning.
5 March is my duathlon. So i really need to do those brick sessions! Am beginning to panic
Off to take more vitamin C and paracetamol.
Yersinia - sensible attitude just doing the swim after the bike attacking you. Impressed that you managed the winterswim distance, I had signed up for that and done a couple of rounds before my accident so had to pull out, but will do it next year. My swim is still for rehab purposes only until end of March!!! ggrrhh doctors orders.
Today I did one hour on exercise bike, plan stated it should have been one hour fifteen mins yesterday and a 45 min run today, but tired yesterday and did not fancy going out in the strong wind today, so that was my excuse and my exercise.
