Just popping in to say well done to everyone for great training - very envious!

Did a very short jog at the weekend and another last night (20 mins) to test the ankle. Still not 100% but maybe its the aqua jogging that is bad for it! Getting a few miles on the bike too.

Great result NP!!

Stuart and Stewart it sounds like you are both having a hectic time at work. The Etape is the same day as London Stewart so I've not entered although the way things are going I maybe should have!

MG1 nice easy run this morning.

Michael, building the miles nicely there.

Tried a run on Monday but not happening so back on the bike. Got out twice at the weekend which was great fun. Hopefully the physio will shed some light on why the ankle is still so bad tomorrow.,

Stuart well done for fitting in the run.

NP nice to see you had an easy day.

OH, MG1 good easy running.

Michael I will not be doing any sort of long runs for some time! I don't think I'll start specific marathon training until about 8-10 weeks prior to London. Even then just one or two runs of 20+ miles - seems to be what works for me..

Loved the dark cycle although the downhill was pretty scary. Back out tonight.

Envious of all this running! Ankle still not right but must be patient....

Stewart Sunday was great for a cycle just really cold! I haven't taped up my shoes yet and I forgot how cold it is on the bike. Had a great cycle, just 46 miles but felt good on it.

NP great to hear you recovered fast, sounded bad.

NN that is a scary thought about doing 20 milers by Xmas. Going on the basis that I did one 20 miler before Frankfurt I think I'll stick to that as it seemed to work.

Bought lights for the bike so heading out tonight for my first group night ride  looking forward to it but terrified too!! Apparently you have to watch for moths, bats and deer.

Well done Stuart!! Like OH says don't be hard on yourself, that's a great run!
Laptop has died and I'm rubbish on the phone as I can only open one page at a time. Lots of great running going on. ???? new laptop should arrive next week.
No running here yet, didn't do much turbo work either last week ???? but did a turbo session today and club cycle tomorrow. ????

MG1 nice easy run.

Stuart I hope the long run goes well after the nocturnal weights!

NN amazing time and very well done on the prize, fantastic! That's what I love about running, just when you least expect it a good run comes along 

Well done on the cycle and swim kaz.

Stewart great report and well done, a fantastic time in tough conditions!

A productive day for you yesterday NP.

Nice 5k Michael!!

OH you are hardy still in shorts, 2 degrees here today and freezing on the bike yesterday.

The bike was really tough. Ended up through my own confusion not in the slowest group; they were picking up the pace to split the group up and I didn't realise and hung on. My quads just died on any uphill and we were going too fast for me to eat or drink so I was barely moving by the end, cycling back into a strong headwind/crosswind. 60+ hard miles but it has to be good training!!

Good luck at Eddies Stewart!!
First time out on the bike with the club today in a long time so I'll be dropped by the time we get out of town!
Pleased to hear you are on the mend Teknik
Will post more later but a 30 day plank challenge AGF? Interesting, I will look it up. F

Thanks everyone

Stewart it was a nice mild night last night but I am finding it really cold today!

MG1 Zurich sounds lovely, hope you get in. I seem to recall that with Frankfurt they were still taking entries on the Saturday.

Well done on the swimming Stuart - probably something I should be doing for the next 2 weeks but that will not happen!

Can't wait for cake in the park NN. I know training through the winter is hard but I am so looking forward to getting going again.

Ankle still swollen so I have been told that no running for 2 weeks. Will be cycling, turboing and cross-training.
