Hi Ant, sounds like a P&D session.

2old - Great training, as always, from you.  Problem we've both got is staying injury free.

10 windy  miles this morning at 7:51 avg, felt harder than it should have, combination of working long late shifts this week and legs heavy from yesterday's 1 to 1 swim lesson, lots of kickboard work, managed 25m in 24 seconds just kicking which is good but shows up my 22 seconds for 1 length flat out including arms as a bit weak.

Freemers - Good running, my longish runs are unfuelled , no breakfast/gels, and will continue with this when they get longer. Will start taking taking gels if I push the pace and always carry an emergency gel on the 20's in case I start to struggle.

2old - Another good week from you and well done for getting out in the elements. 

1 hour in the pool yesterday, I was practising left breathing but then was joined in the lane so reverted to right breathing and did 4x100, 2 x 200 and 1 x 400,

5 miles this morning with middle 3 quick, first speedy stuff for a long time and not the best day to choose as slippy in places but happy enough with the splits, 7:06, 6:49,6:37

What Films make you cry?

Crash - The racial and social tension one,  2 scenes one when the daughter gets shot outside the house and the scene where matt dillon rescues thandie newton(who he previously abused), not the weird film about car crashes.

Marley and Me

Les Mis and a few more can't think of.

Kiwi - Well done on the 5 miler, any fancy dress?

Chick - try not to let work stress you out, have you a long break for Xmas?

Minni - Planning any new/different obsessions/interests for the next 6 months?

Put our tree up today, first time with a real tree, good job we did n't pick a bigger one as it looked a lot smaller in the field when we collected yesterday. 

Swim club Friday evening and yesterday afternoon no dramas this week.  15.5 cold/windy miles this morning at 7:44 avg.

Minni - Very well done on the mile swim, I'm the same the swimming seems easier the longer I am in the pool.  Rest well and come back strong. I'm tempted by a multi sports watch including the swim function.

2old - Yes as soon as you register with Strava and put in your Garmin user name all training is automatically loaded to Strava. 

An hour in the pool this afternoon, had it to myself for the first 20 mins or so then 50 mins on the indoor bike when I got home.

Minni - Good news and speedy recovery, did you get the mile swim done?

nell - good consistent pace on your runs.

2old - See you are getting some good mileage done, have you got a Garmin that logs your swimming or is there some other way of recording the swim training.

Kiwi - Good to have races planned, lets hope your knee behaves.

An hour in the pool this afternoon followed by 5 wet and windy miles slow. I have found a new toy to play with, anyone else on Strava?

Chick - Excellent mileage for the week and good news on Jantastic including bike and swimming will make it more interesting.

nell - Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera, used to love their music back in the 80s,  did he play any of their hits or just new stuff?

Swimming Club on Friday was a complete nightmare, worst swimming for a long time, won't bore you with the details but Pink had to put up with me ranting for over an hour when we got home, anyway emails back and forth between me and my coach and a good chat with him yesterday before the afternoon session and all OK now.  Well done to Pink she was put in the "big dogs" lane on friday and did very well.

Just under 15  miles this morning at 8:01 avg

Minni - Impressive distance on your swim, where we are both hopefully going I would rather be going long than short/fast. Yeah 2 pool sprint tri's booked for early season next year, then planning an OW sprint for July then OW standard in August.

10 miles this morning at 7:43 avg.
