So, we built a gym in the garden...



...now just need to move the toys in and start using it.

Thankyou Maca Lad. Last month when I was toying with the idea of building a garden gym (posted in "off topic") he said "it is well easy, it is logical". This was the comment that made me decide to go for it. Not sure it was easy, but I'd agree it was logical, and there is plenty of "how to" info, good and bad, on Youtube.



All available hands were recruited, big or small...



... and it was fun to build- a bit like Jenga.



Last step is to find an electrician to fire it up- that bit is for a pro! And then to plan a campaign... bring on the 2012 season!

Wheezy: that was then, this is now Wink Very Happy
SteveR: Absolutely, its something to do for fun and fitness, the races are just icing. At the moment I'm thinking a spring marathon and then Alpe de Huez triathlon again, family holiday permitting.
dhcm: Oh yes, and I feel we are sailing pretty close to both limits! Luckily the gym equipment we already have, although I do need a new turbo as my Tacx Flow died last year
Queasy: Chapeau, great IM result you had, will watch your next race with interest

It probably says something about my life when I say that I've been "excited" to see how this progresses Sad

Nice work.
