    MM, why not do your bike sessions on the turbo. I used to do 2-3hr rides on mine. I have just upgraded mine to the IMagic version that allows you to ride whilst watching yourself on the computer screen and looking at the lovely (simulated) scenery!

    Good luck to everyone racing

    I feel quite good as well.
    Deal 5M tomorrow & looking for a good position.
    I'm refueling & carbo loading at the momment YUM YUM!
    Martin H take it easy & all will come back soon.
  • hi, what a miserable day in herts...

    managed to do 20 mins tempo run at the gym followed by a sauna and steam,

    I just cant seem to get my self in gear to do any long runs. I cant bear to run in the rain just yet... Will try and do an hour tommorrow if the weather isnt too bad. Im also a bit wary of going out at night due to our proximity to Stevenage.

    how does everyone motivate themselves on these horrible days.

    good luck to everyone racing tommorrow, I think youd be better in your wellies..

  • went to gym too
    What a wuss
  • Belated welcome back to Drew

    What: intended 4.1 mile @tempo pace - wimped out & did 4.3K acceleration run; not too hard - started at 6:40 pace (1st mile) & finished at 6:05 pace (last mile)

    Why: Had been a busy day - son's school X-C debut in Wavertree (Liverpool) a.m.; Mrs S decided to seek out some of her ancestors' former homes in Sefton Park on the way home; shopping in the p*ssing rain p.m., firework display early evening, so started late.
    Also domestic issues dictate that I now need to shift Sunday's long (well, ish - but lengthening) run to a.m. when the rest of the family is at church - so didn't want to take too much out of myself.

    Last hard day: Tue
    Last rest day: previous Sat
  • A little late.........

    Why : First run in 2 weeks due to flu, wanted to do something fun.

    Last Hard day : 20/10 10k run
    Last Rest day : tuesday as been doing spinning rest of the week.
