For those not yet up to IM
Cake, your hugs are legendry, it will be a pleasure to pass one on.
Typical, I got the top of the page.
Sorry I've been awol for a while. But very good to hear that you are mended Steady and back to training. And that MC is kind of mended and back to work. And very sorry that Paddy is now broken
Had a great week of base training last week, but hardly done any this wekk due to sore throat, too much work, too little sleep and a Thanksgiving Turkey dinner for 15 yesterday! Plenty of home made pumpkin pie left if you want some.
Am looking forward to parkrun with my daughters in the morning and hopefully will be back to training next week.
Have a great weekend
I haven't had pumpkin pie since I was a child, didnot really care for it, but carving the pumpkin for halloween was fun, the family grew pumpkins and marrows along with plenty of other fruit and veg on an allotment.
Enjoy parkrun, think my news years resolution may be to do at least one parkrun.
I have never had pumpkin pie! We used to carve turnips when I was a kid - we used to have a trip to a local farmer's field with school, pick turnips and carve them.
finally got my speed cadence sensor mounted on my bike - much easier than I thought. Only one problem when OH put the cable tie round the spoke as well as through the cadence sensor, oops - good job there was an extra ceble tie in the box
all ready for a turbo sufferfest tomorrow morning
My cadence sensor worked last weekend, although giving some dodgy readings, but on Friday it did not work at all. Will have to check it out again.
I went ot the running show but only bought some gels, nearly purchased a backpack but decided I did not need another bag. Oh dear that makes me sound like I am a bag lady.
steady - have the magnet shifted a bit?
Looks like the magnet is OK, but will try resetting it. I am due to go for a ride tomorrow with Dustboy and some others, but putting off decision as to which bike to take, hybrid or road bike; hybrid will need tyres pumping up and quick check it goes inside the car OK, the road bike is on the turbo and I will have to change the wheel over but has slick tyres.
Road bike CJ out of preference. I have just recced part of it and apart from a bit of standing water here and there, it's not too bad. Suggest around 90-100 psi rather than race hard though on the tyres.
I was at the running show too this arvo!
OK, then I had better get the bike off the turbo and the wheel swapped over.Running show was alright but prefer the Tri show in the spring, much more to buy then.
Wheel changed over in less than 10 minutes and pumped up tyres. Well I went for 100psi, but getting the connector bit off always results in air loss, sometimes so much I have to start all over again. I will put the bike in the car in the morning.
Enjoy tomorrow. Just shy of 60km today in the pissing rain. Got home and drained my gloves out. The group had a persistant puncture that resulted in 3 stops and alot of cold people.
urgh, what a horrid time IronCat, hope you have dried out and looking forward to XC in the morning.
did my first sufferfest this morning, brilliant
I wondered why it wasn't showing the speed, it was only at the end of the session I realised I hadn't pressed the start button. DOH
oh well, it was a bloody good workout, might ask OH to sort out all the rest of the sufferfest videos for xmas for me,
Well done Mathschick, I enjoyed my ride with Dustboy, he talked me up the hills and we all enjoyed the downhill bits. The sun shone whilst we cycled but rained on my way home. 20 miles in less than 2 hours.Washed the bike and now set back up on the turbo where it will stay for a few months now.
8.5km (5.3mi) XC run today in the league. Horrendous conditions; waterlogged, and deep deep deep puddles.
Nice run Razor - don't go pushing it too much though (even if you do beat H!). A nice ride Steady, and a good turbo MC!
My kit is still damp from yesterday's bike.
Massage and a couple of days rest did the trick with the shoulder. Total 1600m in the pool this morning, including a huge (for me) 150m non-stop. I could only swim 25m 6 weeks ago. I'm made up with the progress. Shows what a little coaching can do. Wish I'd done this years ago.
175m on Tuesday. Baby steps.
