Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 17/01/2015 at 21:00

No exercise for me today but my side is healing nicely.

Looking forward to hopefully managing a full week of cycle commuting next week. It's supposed to be getting colder though so looking at buying full length winter cycling bib.

MC - sounds like you've had a busy week.

Steady - great speed.

I got to sleep later and the later shuttle bus got me to work on time.

Not such a busy day at work, was nice for a chance.

Got a list back home.

Thought I got away with my fall yesterday although I felt my left side stretching when I went down. Later in the evening it started axing though and now I can feel it hurting all on that side. Will give cycling a miss today and taking the free bus.

Training for a shorter Tri

Oh I'm not fully fit either Barry but never mind that.

Took a fall with my bike today going to work. I have to cross a walking bridge and it's blocked for cars with barriers at either end. You have a small gap at either side which is at 90 degree angle. It also goes slightly down hill and is really gravelly. So far I've been dismounting but after seeing another cyclist cycling through the gap yesterday, I decided to give it a go. At the last minute, I decided I didn't want to do it after all, got left stationary with feet in clipless pedals and timbeeer! Got my hands on the bridge rail so only knocked my knees and elbow on the floor. Must of been a sight! I think I'll keep on dismounting until I feel bit more confident. On a mountain bike I wouldn't've thought twice...

Lovely yoga session tonight as well. Really stretches me out and feel so good afterwards. 

Have to say, I now look forward to the weekend and a break from cycling!

Steady - hope you have full recovery soon.

ButterCup - glad your body's liking it.

My commute this morning felt harder than yesterday, not really sure why but really struggled on the upflats. Breathing was better though. Rained again coming home but it really doesn't matter. Enjoying the time spent on the bike.

First cycle commute to new work. Route was much better than I expected. It's only 5 miles but it was nice to be out. Legs are fine but still not getting a full breath after my chest infection. Coming back a bit of wet hail was coming down but I was still enjoying it! And I was so dreading it in the morning...

Why aren't there parkruns in France, Germany, Spain, Italy etc?

No Peter, they just prefer their own company. Or is that just me???

Speaking for Finland (which I can - even though I've lived away for a long time), we don't really need a parkrun. Forests are easily accessible in most places and lots of people spend at least some of their free time out of doors running/walking/skiing/ice-skating... Plus Finns like to be on their own, not in groups.
