Uborka! Fitness Club

Who of you has been out in the wind and rain? Can you find anywhere to put your feet that isn’t under water? These are the burning questions of fitness club this week. Perhaps we should all be swimming instead, just in case. Or boat-building.

I have had a cold for a week, and did a lot of sleeping and now I’m waiting for the snot to subside before I get back out there. Maybe tomorrow, a short one. I had hoped to do another Really Long One before the 10k at Eton Dorney on 1st March, but it looks unlikely now, what with half term next week. At least now when life gets in the way, I am confident that I will be able to pick up close to where I left off.

Tell us your news…

  1. I cycled to my mate’s house for tea on Monday. Which just showed how unfit I am, and that I need to get back into cycling more often.

    Currently relying on my 10-15 minute walk to work to at least provide some activity, but that’s far from ideal 🙂

    Btw, once you’ve all built your boats, head North. Things relatively dry here in Liverpool (though we had a few minutes of snow yesterday…)

  2. Skin’s waterproof, innit? I’ve been cycling to work and running as usual, although it’s been a good deal windier and wetter in the last couple of weeks than it has been all winter. Wind is the worst and, as every runner knows, you always have the wind in your face, even if you’re running a loop. It’s just FACT.
    I’ve been inspired to try to get out of my super-supportive Brooks Adrenaline GTS and into a rather less built up pair of Brooks Pure Cadence. They’re not barefoot shoes, by any stretch of the imagination, but they’re a move in that direction. I’m trying to strengthen my ankles, you see. So far so good. Perhaps not entirely coincidentally, I’m also reading “Born To Run”, which is excellent and I highly recommend it to you all. Don’t let the weather put you off, people! I was out tonight and it was absolutely beautiful. Keep the faith!
