Get away!  Most of the time Minni would opt for a bottle of wine....

Yes, Superman, tri booked for May - which is the only reason I'm doing all this!! I'm hoping after the tri I'll be able to get back to proper run training,

Great to have you back to keep us all in line. We've kinda lost our way without you. You may have noticed the posts have been down? Yeah, we've all been partying and drinking lots but we'll pull ourselves together now you're back...

Nell - only a Geordie! Lol. I got caught in the sleet too but now it's 5 degrees warmer than it was when I was out this morning,

O4S - how busy is it at the moment? Are the races arranged just for people at La Santa or can anyone join in?

Speedy - hope its nothing too serious. 

MsE - glad to hear the pacing is starting to feel right.  No niggles at the moment?

Things continuing to progress in the right direction here.  Wednesday was 5.5 on road, rested an achy calf (!!!) on Thursday, did a brick of 14 mile bike/2 mile run on Friday then 22 on the bike yesterday.  Went for an off road run this morning of 6 miles with some walking over muddy fields.  

Previously any 'brick' sessions I did involved preparing dinner, hanging washing out etc in the transition so this was the first proper one I've done.  Everyone says its hard to get going on the run and I found this too.  It was like running through treacle and I chose an off road path, which is slightly harder too.  However, I was please to see the fastest two miles recorded post op.  I'm thinking that as well as the tri training this might be a good way to introduce some speed into the running.  A good bike warm up followed by a short faster run. 

Tonight's swim club session was as hard as ever but I think I am seeing some improvement in my technique. 

Sam - how is your mega cycle training coming on?  Any running yet?

SK blimey well done!  That's a huge whack off your pb. You must be thrilled - happy days!  

Gingermagic cracking 20 from you there and a great confidence builder.  Well done. 

But Angela steals the show.  Not for the win (which is brilliant, well done!) but for sticking to the plan and not getting carried away.  Angela you must feel so good and to take a win when you know you had a lot left in the bag too.  Very well done.  I'm sure you won't struggle with motivation for the next few weeks anyway. 

For what its worth Angela I didn't pb at all in my last marathon campaign but felt a stronger runner.  I knocked 5 mins off my marathon time on the big day, and that's the one that mattered.  Trust in the training.

Freemers - good luck today.  See you're back to the speedy reps. 

AA - oh no.  My cold is still lingering.

Chick - my calf grumbled after my first proper road run the other day. 

Barry - yeah shame you didn't have your garmin to record that.  You Muppet! 

Pink - belated happy birthday.  I was looked at wetsuits last week and was advised to get an Ocra beginners and it has more buoyancy on the legs.  I need to go and try on. 

O4S - old? Never!  Looking forward to hearing more about your training camp. 

Nell - Hope you're ready for the blizzards coming in today?!

Great muddy running Jools and MsE.  MsE I'm confused - did you wear the spikes or not? Sorry to read elsewhere that Speedy took a fall.

We only had one lady there, she is the mother of Laura Weightman. 

You've had an exciting few days Lorenzo. I've never been to see the athletics but keep promising myself. 

OO your daughter is amazing.  How quickly she has come through, its only 5 mins since she was trying to break 20.  Oh to be young!
