Hope you managed to get out on your bike today Seren. I couldn't ride today, by bike kit was in the wash.. and I went to the pub like you suggested
managed to get to Merthyr on my hybrid....first time out on the bike in over a month i think
great to be out and great to tick off week 2's training

I'll be getting to Merthyr on Boxing Day but it will be in the car Will have to make do with lots of runs and no cycling and swimming until I get back home New Year's Day.Managed a short gym session with my son this morning who decided that it would be a good idea to race me on the rowing machine with me doing 1000m and him 500m. Clever so and so decided to stop with 6m to go thinking that he'd be able to start again when I was almost finished and still beat me. He lost by 1m
Finally road my bike outdoors for the first time in ages and tried out my Garmin Edge. Quite chuffed with it. Managed 12 undulating miles in an hour.
I have swapped tomorrows rest day for Thursday, I don't think I will be in any fit state to move after boxing day/night
our council pool wasshut all over christmas new year last year but is much better this year..........so going in the morning for a swim and hopefully again on friday...........
I hate swimming and it will be hard after spin in the morning.but then i can finish cooking the turkey and ice the cake and sit down with a glass or two
week 3 kicked off with an hours spin and then an hour in the pool.which was painfully slow as shoulders a bit painful at the moment................followed by a sauna.
unfortunately forgot to take clothes with me so had to return home dresed in swimming cossie and a towel
What were you wearing to go there?
i went in my cycling kit to do spin first...........then changed to swim kit.............after the swim and sauna i could not put on my soaking wet smelly cycling kit from spin...........so a towel seemed the best option
You ladies worry to much, I'm sure the cycle kit has got another 2-3 weeks more use before needing a wash
.it was minging
Stanners - in case you're having trouble with google, chicken wings is when you bring your finger tips in to touch your armpit as you recover the stroke, for fingertips you trail your fingers through the water with a high bent elbow on the recovery. The idea is to get a relaxed hand entry, as if you were writing on the water. Whilst it looks as though it should be more effective to place your hand in the water on entry, blade like, it's actually best to let it enter in a relaxed fashion, fingers slightly apart. Hope that makes sense.
I too was wondering what Seren had worn to the pool! Glad that's been cleared up
45 min run done.
Going to the pub later, going to take my running jacket bike light and trainers, if I "run" back from the pub does that count as a double run day?
park run done and dusted
1 hour brick done, and now its turkey time, merry christmas all
45 minute run this morning.Skipped yesterday's run so added a bit extra to today. Actually felt that I could have comfortably carried on for at least an hour. Might have done if we weren't heading away later today and I need to sort out what clothes I'm taking.
At least the important stuff is ready to pack, 3 lots of running tops, leggings and socks plus 2 pairs of shoes.
long run done for me this morning........managed to stay in zone 1.....did 1hr 50 mins which is longer than fink but I am going to do longer for both the long run and bike as i am slow and have a few miles in my legs hopefully
17.3 mile ride done this afternoon, managed to do it in 56 mins which is a PB, quite suprised given the pissing weather, must have been all the energy gained from all the turkey yesterday.
Getting ready for boxing day drinks, rest day tomorrow
so is it onlt those of us in south wales training this week.....where is everyone.......come on get training....cutback week next week
