Yes, I've recently started using Zwift. I've done a couple of FTP tests, some group training rides, designed a couple of short workouts, and done one TT. Have to say it takes the boredom out of turbo training. Great job in my opinion.

Could anyone recommend a turbo (mid level pricing) that is fully equipped to work with zwift? Been toying with the idea for a while but not 100% sure on turbo requirements.

Any turbo will work with Zwift once you have a Cadence & speed sensor.

If you mean a Smart Turbo that will adjust automatically if you choose a hilly course or create a custom workout - I use this one - https://tacx.com/product/vortex-smart/

Cheers, is that good to go straight out of the box? Apart from the zwift bit obviously.

Tried to search for running 'trails' with not much joy. Can anyone tell me if there are any round North Armagh direction?

I'd say Gosford Park would have plenty of paths in that area. Any forest park would have plenty, I would do a lot in Castlewellan forest park and Tollymore, do a good bit of it at night with a head torch - hard to beat it!

looking some advice - I purchased a mobile broadband router (O2) recently and as i had thought I am getting speeds 10x my BT broadband, only issue is the range within the house. Have any of you used a mobile router in a home/workplace that you could recommend?

Is anyone doing Tollymore 10K at the start of Jan? Or has anyone done it in the past? What type of trainers would be best?

Who is organising that? Wouldn't mind doing it, also looked at the night races, one there too...need something to get back at it. Have never done the race but would have done plenty of running round Tollymore (and Castlewellan) park, its trail running really, although I have never worn anything other than my standard trainers a pair of trail trainers (soloman or the likes) would probably help. Depending on conditions it can get quite slippy, took a tumble myself there a few months ago.

cheers, I will probably just use my ordinary runners - reebok nanos - given the proximity to Christmas

Assuming it will mostly be around the black path of tollymore? If so i ran it a few years ago. Just ordinary runners will do fine.

it follows the forest path so Im assuming so

Not quite the black path - mostly stays the car-park side of the river looking at the route, which is good in that it leaves out the climb half way round the black path, there is a stretch up to the exit gate that will be guttery but at least wont be slippy.

If you have to pay for parking do you not come out ahead taking the train?

You wouldn't - about 20 worse off

Brilliant stuff, sounds just like how Paris went for me, loving the first 20 miles then cramping up, dehydrating and limping over the line in near tears!

Butterfly's are kicking in now for Dublin...hopefully won't be (as) painful for the last 6 mile!!
