Running (Abu Dhabi HHHs) 50:16 [3] 8.0 km (6:17 / km) +20m 6:12 / km
shoes: adidas adistar control

Run around the Port area of Abu Dhabi, quite a few slow sections while we were searching for the trail and a few faster sections too, sort of a slow and easy fartlek. Had some soft sand running early on too which was nice for a change rather than the bitumen and concrete running which is the main option here in Abu Dhabi.

Went to Wild Wadi water park in Dubai this morning which was really cool, had loads of tube slides which actually went uphill, certainly the first time I have been on an uphill water slide - they must have some impressive water pumps!

shoes: adidas adistar control

Easy run with kelly from the hotel up the hill. The sun was just setting and the view was superb, unfortunately we ran out of trail and the terrain was ridiculously rocky so only did 30 odd minutes. Looking forward to the Dhow trip tomorrow in the fjords!

Run to the Corniche from Mum and Dad's apartment with Kelly. She kept on surging away from me - bugger need to get back into shape!

Mountain Biking (freezing) 1:30:00 [3] 30.0 km (3:00 / km)

The sandwich bags did almost nothing to keep my feet warm, definitely need to get some decent winter booties. Had the full spectrum of rain, sleet and snow. At least the two pairs of winter gloves managed to keep my hands relatively comfortable. Despite the rigid forks i was surprised how smoothly the bike rode, only problem was when my brakes stopped working on the biggest descent of the ride but some quick maintenance sorted them out.

Sheffield is just awesome for mountain biking, definitely have to get out more often, hopefully next time the weather will be better.

Running (Richmond Park) 50:00 [3] 9.49 km (5:16 / km) +117m 4:58 / km
shoes: nike zoom elite 3

Run with Kelly around Richmond Park. Two big nights in a row before this and I could tell. Kelly tried to hurt me (successfully) particularly when she got pissed off at some guy who came flying past us and didn't pay her any attention, so she ran next to him for a few hundred metres trying to get a reaction and left me in her dust.

BTW she got nothing out of him, typical grumpy londoner.
