Nice one DB!

Quick recovery MrsDigger. 

I managed to get a virus from somewhere and slept all day Sunday. Have felt pretty rubbish and off work Monday and Tuesday. Starting to feel better now so back to work tomorrow but no exercise this week so no biking to work. Boo!

Hope you had your sleep Steady and are recovering.

I hit my target of 200 miles commuting in January. Unfortunately I woke up with fever on Sunday morning and have stayed at home today. There might not be any cycling this week as have a chesty cough as well.

I've found a nice 5 miler trail run to work towards in June which is cheap and local. Not entered yet as they have last year's entry form on website and online through this website it's £2 dearer. Maybe I should just use the universal entry form and get it done.

Oh I was so tired cycling to work this morning, legs like lead after training last night and therefore recorded my slowest time to work yet. Funnily enough felt refreshed coming back and although I thought I took it easy, I recoded my second quickest time coming back. Still on for 200 miles this month even if I just cycle 4 days next week. Monday's going to be tricky though...

Getting bit tired...


Training for a shorter Tri

I'm starting to get bit tired, all this regular commuting getting to me. Though I guess jumping from last 4 months average of 82 miles to 140 and counting is bit of a step up. Plan is to cycle to work every day this month. My commitment is going to be questioned  next Monday and Tuesday though. Have two hard matches on Sunday coming up and might be bit sore afterwards and on Tuesday we have a work event in Guildford. We're getting a minibus there from work but if I cycle I need to be leaving 6:30, not good when you're getting more and more tired...

As I've been away for awhile, what are you all training for this year?

I have no plans, just want to get back running and build from there.

So last week my commute took me to 50 miles because of couple of misturns. So after going to work today I had to cycle 7 miles, couple of miles further than my usual route back, to get to 100 miles. So I did an extra loop getting back home but it wasn't enough so I had to go and do another lap. I really wanted to see that 100 in my log rather than nearly 100. Last time I bike commuted the whole week was last May so I must be getting fitter. Or just means I've had a break over xmas and feeling fresher and vb training has just started so not had time to get too tired yet. But now I'm determined to cycle the whole month to work.
