Chilli....yeah I'm plugging away trying to keep as near as I can to the Fink plan and really enjoying it, managing to swim at lunchtime so can get two training sessions a day. If I need to.
Sounds like a stressless ride and it does help with it being mild
ST......where are you mate? Anyone heard from him?
And where is Shaz?

Razor, all going grand it appears. Great stuff on the bike. Chili, sounds like lovely ride. Really need to brave the roads again. 

I did manage a 17min run all in one go this evening. Averaging 10.3min/mile. Most excited. No walk breaks anymore and things feel ok. Was rubbish during nights and didn't train at all though.

Maths, how is it back at work? 

Mikasa, always good having someone to push you. Keep pushing on...

Mrsd well done on your run

I am giving myself an easy week on the training while I cope with the first week back at work, although I could do with the exercise to deal with the stress. Eldest son has turned into a stupid annoying brat again now he is back at school with his stupid friends! he was much calmer and nicer over xmas....Dealing with him is way more stressful than dealing with the 200+ kids that I teach!!

That's EXACTLY the words I was looking for. My youngest has just turned into one too.

how old is he DB? Mine is 12 and the transformation occured on starting secondary school this September. He was much nicer before!

The 12 year old is OK, sort of, it's the 9 year old that is becoming the problem!

09/01/2013 at 14:35

maybe we should swap - I'll have your 12 year old and you have my 12 year old

09/01/2013 at 20:19

Keep 12 year olds away from me, they are aliens.

I did my first 2.5 min run and 1 min walk, made sure I did a good warm up by walking for 7 mins before running.

Cycling is on the agenda for tomorrow.

Power test on the turbo tonight. It told me I'm back where I was in Sep. More bikework needed.

Hope all gets better DB.

4.5 mile run tonight, felt like shit but got through it must have been the beasting I gave myself on the turbo last night at least it was a bit warmer in my garage than out on the road.

Glad tonight was 40 min turbo in the garage, it certainly felt cold out.
I have managed 4 days of training, so hopefully I can keep it up and stick with the little bit of everything training.

Got to check on Winterswim as I think the next round is 800m, which I find a challenge to do in the pool, having to dodge the head up breast strokers and others that don't swim at a consistent pace.

Chilibean, plenty of hot lemon and honey drinks may help.

Good run tonight with the club. Hilly 10km in 47minutes. Hadn't run since last Friday, due to being a socialite at the weekend, and resting for the power test. Swim tomorrow, including some stroke analysis .

got really fed up in the pool last night with all the people that don't understand the concept of a lane swim.

CJ - yep, winterswim is 800m, not sure when the round finishes

Okay, so managed to swim for 30mins tonight all fc. Lost track of laps and distance but only had a few recovery breaks. Really chuffed. 50min turbo done on Wed. All on track at the moment. Bike tomorrow and run Sun hopefully completes the week. 

Hope you're doing okay DB.... Taking it easy. 

I wish all with colds a speedy recovery and Maths a visit from Nanny McFee. Have a good weekend peeps!
