    Winter is nearly upon us, the nights are drawing in and the mornings are close to the point that my motivation to commute vanishes. What do you guys do for winter training during the week?

    I lodge during the week so a turbotrainer is out.

    It doesn’t look like anybody does any winter training, but here’s what I decided on;

    Monday: 30 mins plus last lap best effort on a loop round the estate I live on. Currently, that’s 6 laps (8.5 miles) in about 33.5 minutes. The idea is to keep pushing until I do 7 laps then increase the time to 35 minutes plus last lap and so on.

    Tuesday: 30 day fitness plan (bodyweight exercises)

    Wednesday: as Monday

    Thursday: As Tuesday

    Friday: Rest (mainly because I have a 2.5 hour commute on a Friday evening)

    Saturday and Sunday: Fundays. Either a few hours of off-road fun or a few hours scuba diving on both days. Unless the long haired general has the day off and insists we go shopping or some other such hell.

    Well, at least it’s a plan. 😀

    And as long as you do your best at sticking to it then at least it should see you come out of the other side of Winter with still a modicum of fitness and conditioning. Go for it. 😉

    Sticking to it won’t be too hard and it’s way more than I’ve done the rest of the year…

    Then you can only improve. 😉

    My commute is under 2 miles so I doubt it’s beneficial enough to be worth getting soaked.

    Good point. 😆 😆
