Grrrrrrrrrrr. First day of my training programme for the tri in July and I have a stinking head cold. I think a large whisky is called for.
Maybe I could sweat it out on the turbo. Don't suppose I can get done for being drunk in charge of a bicycle indoors.

My IM story..

I have done a few half marathons and London marathon a few years back. I enjoy running because it takes my mind off other things going on, and this year so far has not been great.

I had a season off racing last year, having been back to university as a "mature" student, so didn't have the time (coundn't be arsed, and uni was a good excuse to be lazy) to enter any events or train, after doing Cardiff half in 2011 30 mins slower than my PB I thought that I was a little out of shape and needed something to motivate me. In Feb I made a bet with my mate in the pub (it was a good idea at the time) about who could do Llanelli half marathon quickest, the race went really well, I won the bet and only having done 4 weeks training set a PB for that course. So I thought need a new challenge, IM was the logical next step.

Not sure who's logic I am following tho...

Do you guys prefer to run with or without music?

If 'with' - favourite running toonz?
01/05/2012 at 18:28
Used to be with music, but have now changed to without, its a bit to dangerous running around the country roads where I live if you can't hear the cars coming.
Didn't really have a favourite for running just used to put my ipod on shuffle.

And idiots seldom differ

I run and cycle with music - I got tired of all the cars beping at me so now I just drown it out!!

I find I have to be careful what I listen to, because I start to run to the beat of the tune. A bit of Maiden can make it very hard work!

Ahh, but 'Hallowed be thy name' or '2 minutes to midnight' at mile 16 when you need your second wind beats any energy gel
