For those not yet up to IM
Evening everyone. My laptop died on Sat, but is fortunately now fixed so just popping in to say hello.
Had a great training day yesterday with bike and run then woke up unable to breathe properly so decided swim was not such a great idea.
Hopefully it won't develop into anything mosre than suffles and headache so I can do a long bike ride tomorrow.
Razor - your training is impressive
Stay well everyone and don't eat too many mince pies
We have already gone through packets and packets of mince pies
Club run tonight. 11km. Definitely not in Z2
Mmmm, mince pies, had 2 mini ones today. I prefer homemade to packaged up mass produced ones, will make some at the weekend for Mr Steady using gluten free pastry.
chili - hope you are ok
mmm, mince pies. We are having a fuddle at work today so lots of food
oh I love xmas cake too, and xmas pudding!
really enjoyed a sufferfest turbo session this morning
Felt better this morning so did my long ride of 12 miles . Was shattered. I can't believe that cycling 12 miles is harder than running 12 miles!
Now I feel bunged up with cold again!
Not so keen on mince pies although I make them for the family... prefer chocolate brownies
Mrs Cat made rocky road cake at work yesterday. Gives a nice break from mince pies.
Nice ride Chili. I must do some bricks at some point :S
Work stuff completed, can now relax and enjoy the time off.Just a rather long to do list to get through, but at least I have done one thing which was go out for a short run/walk. Just the cleaning and cooking etc to do; oh and wrap up Mr Steady's pressie whilst he is at work tomorrow. I am still waiting to find out if its just the 2 of us or FiL is going to come. Was hoping to sneek a bit of exercise in on Xmas day if I can, even if its just a walk after lunch.
Well the week started off well but finished with a cold so I can't breathe so can't run. Did a 3 mile walk with one of my daughters this eve though.
Well done Steady. With hubby being a minister Christmas is a 'work day' for us, although rather a fun one and we have 3 elderly ladies from our chuch joining us for dinner. But I too hope to get in a run or walk later in the evening.
cat - I love rocky road
steady - I have loads of cleaning tidying wrapping to do. Also need to go with the kids to deliver scout post - we seem to have loads to deliver this year! Maybe not today as it is chucking it down and we all have colds
chili - I have finished the week with a rotten cold too which is going to mean no training this weekend. And the swimming pool isn't open again till Thursday - I feel like I have done very little swimming lately!
Shame you're oop norf Maths, you could have some rocky road; we have stacks of it now.
So a new PB at parkrun this morning, although only by 1s. I was hoping to crack the 20 min level today, but the entire course was waterlogged and hard going. Still, to be 1s quicker in all that since Sep can't be that bad.
A nice walk on Christmas day, with a run to in-laws on Boxing day (~10mi).
PB in this weather? Well done, and in a Santa suit as well ?
Well done Cat I was race director at our parkrun this morning and took our little tent so there was somewhere dry for folk to leave their coats.
Did a bike ride to a friends today. Hubby met me there with the kids. Very wet and dark on the way home but I had all the gear so was okay.
MC - haven't swam for two weeks either
chili - well done on the run and bike in yesterday's weather
I think the swim is the one that is easiest to skip/most difficult to do because we are restricted to the times that the pool is open - my pool doesn't actually have many public swimming sessions, and of course life/kids/family have a habit of needing me exactly when the pool is open.
I did a turbo this morning, but failed to check that the garmin was registering the sensor, so I did 30 minutes and have no idea on how far or what the cadence was. although I can state that my heart rate was spot on for Z2, I worked up a sweat and concentrated on doing even circles, not just pushing down on the pedals.Mr Steady has been in bed all day ill, FiL is not coming up to stay, so I can do the last bit of fresh food shopping tomorrow morning, then make mince pies. Hope to get into the Carol service in the late afternoon, last year it was full and didnot get in.I am going to watch loads of childrens films and chill out tonight. This week I have done 2 swims, 2 run/walks and a turbo.
Oo-er, haven't swum since about October, last bike was with Steady etc yonks ago and no turbo yet either. But at least it's set up! Just come back to running after a coupel of weeks pretty much enforced leave and managed 7 miles yesterday but REALLY feeling it today, which is unusual.
Maybe lager & kebabs are the solution?
thanks DB - I now feel better as it is only a couple of weeks since I last swam! trouble is I have never been very quick so really need to get the practice in
well, despite the cold I have I am going to go to the pool for half an hour tonight so I can get a 200m time for winterswim.
will probably run in the morning too
