Thanks for the link Cake, will put that on my possibles list,

Thanks to a defective train giving me a journey of over 2 hours to get home, I did not turbo, but ended up doing some weight training in the form of moving a massive bag of logs into the trailer ready to take to my Dad for his fire. My arms ache already so not sure if I will be able to lift a cup of tea in the morning.

Finally managed to get out for a run for the first time in over 2 weeks (lurgy)  with my bessy mate Horse, we did 5.5 miles in z2 10:55 min/mile and felt surprisingly good apart from tripping up over a kerb,   no damage so alls well.  

I need to get on my bike and get in the pool sooner than later

I've heard of running in the pool when you're injured, but cycling???

Razor - well done on the run, good to hear you are over the lurgy

I have seen some kind of aqua cycling class at my local pool - like spin bikes in the pool. Never been tempted to join in though! 

someone crashed into me on the way to work I am not hurt but she has made a mess of my car - she crashed into the side of me on a roundabout, was very aggressive, shouting at me, blaming me (it was not my fault, was quite clearly hers) and I am very proud that I remained calm and didn't shout back. After she had gone and I got my car off the roundabout and parked up I rang my husband in tears though! He did the right thing and came and rescued me and spent the day sorting out insurance company etc. My poor car is only 4 months old

Maths that's horrible you ok? (((((hugs)))))


Did you get her details for the insurance? If not nows to time to report it even if you don't have the lisence plate there will be CCTV. If she hasn't given the details regardless of blame it's a hit and run and a criminal matter.

((MC))I did a tiny bit of running tonight at the gym, had a worrying night last night as couldn't get in touch with father in law, but Mr Steady spoke with him this morning, although he seems to have got another bit weaker.

Razor good to hear you have shifted the lurgy.

Thanks Guys, I really enjoyed my run, I need to get a better head torch so I can see the bloody kerb that I tripped over, got a bruised knee but it's ok.

Maths , sorry to hear about your bump, the car will mend, just be thankful you are OK.

Steady, Glad to hear your father in law is ok.

Bally, I'm a man of many talents.

I nipped out for a cheeky 23 mile bike ride today, averaged 13mph so very happy. Although I did notice that due to the cold I only drank about 250ml of fluid during the ride, so will have to watch out for dehydrating during these winter months.

I then went to visit my local running shop and ended up buying a new pair of trainers. That is my xmas pressie to myself sorted.

I am ok, just upset. Yes, got her details. The garage has said that it will take about a week, got a hire car today so back at work thank goodness, just feeling a bit upset and drained today, didn't sleep well (mainly snottyness from last night's swim) and feeling a bit frazzled. A 3 hour journey home from work today due to traffic chaos round Newark because of an accident on the A1 hasn't helped

Managed to drag myself out for a little 2 mile run yesterday, and about to do a cycle to the shops for supplies. Aiming for another run tomorrow, and possibly a swim too

Cake, plenty of room on the injury bench mate, I've just got my arse off it, heal well.

08/12/2014 at 22:07

(((cake))) rest it and ease back when it is healed


08/12/2014 at 22:07

Enjoyed my rest day today, even though I did no exercise at all over the weekend. Tomorrow will be swimming and pilates.

Cake give yourself some TLC and don't stay on the injury bench for too long.

Hope everyone has had a good couple of weeks training and no one has been injured to badly.

I have returned from 2 weeks in the sun full of energy and ready to get back into training and getting ready for the start of my 30 week plan at the end of December. 

I managed to go for a few runs on holiday and swam most days. Surprising how your swim fitness improves in such a short space of time.

Im off to sign up to a new gym tonight as the current one is doing my head in as the pool is rubbish so December is a new start for me in many areas.

Back training after extended cold/manflu. Friday 40 min run, Saturday 2 hrs on bike, Monday tri club swimming, 100 mins on bike today. None of it very fast but I'm not slow, I'm doing 'base training' (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)

Quite windy on the moors today, getting blown around a fair bit. Not used to it - it's a bit unnerving!

Didn't get out running or swimming today, though had every intention of doing both. Then got a text off mate asking if I fancied a mtb night ride. Jumped at the chance as I've been wanting to give my £15 eBay light a proper test run off road. Nice, muddy 13 miles, the first few of which were spent battling against a ferocious headwind!

where did everyone go? Durham I think I would be terrified on a muddy night MTB ride!

not done a great deal this morning - had a few long days at school with parents evenings/concerts and the like, but off swimming soon

Night rides are great. The route we took wasn't very technical, most of it was tarmac, with a few sections of very rough country road, couple of bits of muddy, but smooth, singletrack, and a few miles of rocky farm double track. Brilliant fun.
