I think I fancy East Leake, very convenient for my first triathlon

pete - well done on the 10k

mikasa - great to hear you are going to be at wild boar with us all no time limits to worry about and it is great - I went there to support buttercup/cake/tired badger/joddly last year and had a great time

ran this morning, first day back at work and am now shattered!! Thinking of skipping swimming tonight and getting an early night instead. Eaten too many biscuits in the staff room too - need to stop doing that!

It's low key good bike slight hill on the run only bad thing got to say about the course is the pool is small if your a big lad. It's newbie friendly with a large field in terms of ability so sh*te folks like me there but always a few team GB types using it as a warm up for bigger races later in the year.

Maths if the busciuts are a problem you can always post them to me?

*perks up and looks around* did someone say biscuits??

23.65 Km Commuting today and 30 mins on the turbo.  Apparently Fink has released a baby Fink.  Am just sticking to the grandaddy Fink chipping away at it!

oh? The half distance one coming out in a week? I wonder how much overlap there is. Might get it as I got an amazon voucher for xmas.

Have just received Lore of Running - it is so big I think I need to do more weights just to hold it while I read it!!

well done on the commute in the wind buttercup!

Mikasa, I have ridden around the area of the Vachery Tri. It is good in a nice challenging way, but I had to watch out for competitors ignoring marshalls and road junctions where they should give way.

I am planning on going swimming in the morning, then wearing my wellies for the walk to the train station, my ordinary boots got ruined having to walk through mud this evening.

Another 4.5 miles done last night in the rain, deliberately stayed in Z2 and managed 9'40" pace .

Good job Razor!  60 lengths before work and 30 min run Z2 after work and saagwala for tea!  Suspect will sleep well tonight

Mr and Mrs Digger in for East Leake. Let's do this thing! 

I am currently poorly sick. Sinus and cough stuff. Getting most frustrated at not being able to train.

Well done to all plugging on!

MrsD - hope you get better soon

razor - well done

buttercup I have no idea what saagwala is so might go and google it

right, my plan was to go to running club tonight but the weather is awful, driving home in wind and rain has made me wimp out, but I will turbo instead. ran yesterday anyway so not too bad to skip running today, just seem to be having a week of skipping things. I don't normally mind running in the rain,  but I have a 20min drive home which wouldn't be pleasant in soaking clothes!

done a turbo... it was difficult to get myself to do it, but feel better for it. However, the kids have noticed I am in a good mood and have started asking for a pet....gerbil, hamster or a rat.....? arghhhh, we still have xmas hats!

07/01/2014 at 20:06

hehehehe I dont!

Finally off to a tentative start with exercise this year. Got shown my gym programme and then did a little run on the treddie. Only 2k as got bored and ran out of time but it's a start.

07/01/2014 at 20:44

Little steps are better than no steps Mikasa!!

Cheers Butter Cup. Felt OK though so will try to get out on Thursday and thinking about slow park run on Saturday. They recommend trail shoes when muddy though and I don't have any, will have to find out where the closest running shop is.
