Pink- well done fitting in that run and chilly dipping

Ant- good to see you are doing well. That's a tough way to start a marathon  schedule ,imagine that ahead of you for 18weeks 

Barry- seems like we had the same idea doing 10 today. Pretty similar conditions for me too. . Very true the spectre of injury haunts us. Hopefully Xmas will stop me /us overdoing it .  My kick boarding is stronger than most in my club too ...pity about my week arms. 22seconds seems very fast to me. 

So 10.6 today av 7.35 mm but excluding warm up and cool down 7 at MP

Barry/Free-I tended to run unfuelled and without water until I blacked out so have reverted to a regular sugar and water hit.Barry watch your nutrition now you've added swims to the list

Free-not suprised you felt it in the legs after all that.Not sure if a dog assisted 5K merits disqualification-maybe? The mention of the marathon schedule terrified me

Barry-great swimming-its coming together.Strangely mine is falling apart due to not doing it regularly.I was swallowing water all night in swim club.Good fast splits there

9 miles at lunchtime av pace 7.35ish including warm up so most around MP.Then last night 2.1k in Swim Club .All I can say is that the intensity hurt. 18k on the TM today mix of recovery and steady pace.

One of the swimmers was disappointed as his open water swim on Saturday was cancelled due to ice on the surface-wimp!

O4S- you missed the partridge in the pear tree from your list. Poor BA missing out on all that Turkey. Still he gets lots of cake.

Kiwi-I'm fine thanks ,if you can call recovering from my daughters 16th wild birthday party fine. I'm in a state of shock. I've always wanted to do a Santa run but they always look too cold....the off reader sounds challenging 

chick- and both of us are falling apart despite our heart rates. You did 50 miles last week so this week is ok 

 pink - I love the TM ...think it suits my OCD. It's exciting when you suddenly realise a challenging race is soon. Your swims will supercharge your race

minni- still high on pain killers ? How's the recovery ? Hope your being patient 

Barry - very impressed with your big mileage and consistent swimming. I seem to be able to do one or the other. Good nearly LR too

14.5 miles -7.53mm-in the rain and wind. Forgot how enjoyable being out in the elements is. Just over 50 miles this week but disappointingly only one swim. Bit worried that Xmas will curtail my training. 2Turkey dinners so far.

Barry- FB- not a chance I'm past it. I like twitter. Brave 10 in the wind. 

Minni- can you still see two kegs ...  Oops legs?  see you at the Green start.

Free-it's wild weather here. TM running compulsory ! Well done getting out there

O4S- Think I strained my hamstring on Monday doing breastroke so don't knock the mile . I'm sure if you'd put cake at each end you'd have gone on for ever 

Minni -hope it's less painful today. Consultant is going to review the 24ECG and let me know if I need further testing- MRI and tilt table were mentioned .

Barry- looks like your connecting to the world. An empty pool is a bit like open water swimming without the washing machine and weed. Good double session. Consistent swimming too. I'm feeling a bit guilty neglecting the pool 

too cold and windy to run outside so did 28k on the TM at av 7.56 mm . Mo tweeted yesterday that he'd run 20 miles on the TM yesterday so if it's good enough for him etc etc. Bet he was nearer 5mm than 5min km.

Barry-I had my swim watch for Xmas two years ago but never felt the need for it .its very basic but at least counts the lengths which I mix up easily . Can't recall the make at the mo.Rather you than me running out there. Mine are all on the TM . Doesn't Strava sync with Garmin Connect? It won't be long before there is one universal sports portal.

Minni- recovery run tomorrow?

Minni- hope all is well 

O4S- shouldn't have joked..I learnt today that my NHS 24 hour ECG showed my heart rate had slowed down significantly so I'm now to see another cardiologist. Still I can ask my private guy about it tomorrow.
