Welcome to November’s review. Tis December now, and the month of the lurgy and so I am full of cold and feel like I haven’t trained for months. It sucks…

I really picked up my gym work in November, banging out at least two gym sessions a week – one upper body, one lower but fairly low resistance. The plan for December is to level up the resistance training and knock out some intervals on the turbo trainer which will make up for the lack of miles on the open road.
Thank you very much for voting in the November Survey, it seems run training is the order of the day.
I have to say this does make sense. Riding in the wind and rain simply isnt enjoyable and neither is heading out into bad weather to swim and then returning to sleety, cold conditions. Running, however, benefits from the cooling conditions. My stats seem to support this in terms of my own activity. I’m going to run a new poll starting from this weekend on what you are all doing in terms of run training so please check back for the new poll.
Nevertheless, I’m definitely going to get the turbo trainer out. It might be a less favorable option to a quick 10 or 15km run but I’m certain the benefits will be felt in January/February.
Just need to get rid of this cold that has been hanging around for two weeks!
Wrapped up warm. Cinnamon tea with added fresh ginger, at least four a day. Hot manuka honey with lemon juice. Slow release effervescant Vit C tabs, twice a day. Seems to be working now so fingers crossed for next week but my stats are in a bad way. Any suggestions on how to shift a head cold gratefully received!
Until next month then
