(virtually, of course!)
Hello everyone hope your'e all ok x
Sorry haven't posted for a while running has been up & down (literally had a fall the other week, bruised grazed knee & felt a right twit) & a short visit to hosp for investigation.
Doing 10k in Devizes tomorrow & Bath half mara next week, will let you know if I manage to get round !!!
TTFN Nessie x
Im slowly getting back into it all....Plod already knows, but my mummy died very suddenly at christmas, i havent been coping at all well....so once again, im back at the gym and now the sun is out, so am i....not doing much distance yet.
Its nice to see you all and im sorry ive not joined in much xxx
Ah strump - it takes time to cope , you will manage eventually - don't rush yourself - one day at a time xxx
Glad you are back at the gym - just take it slowly you will get there, don't worry about not joining in much just pop in when you feel like it - I look in every now & again for you -- but am always thinking of you.
Did Bath Half Mara & managed to knock 3 mins of previous - & weekend before that I did Devies 10k & knocked 6mins off previous - Soooooooooooooo am getting there slowly
Hope a few of our chums look in soon xx
TTFN Nessie xx
eems to be getting harder, but i keep being told it will all feel less raw soon?? Well done on Bath, wow! Think im a long was off even a half mar yet lol
Don't know about soon ........... but given time things will get easier or perhaps not quite so hard to bear, you do have to take it slowly & I know how hard it must be for you but if at all possible home in on the good thoughts/time etc - easy for me to say but hope it hepls in some small way x
Before you know it you will be thinking of entering a half - I bet you !!!!!! Just progress steady - its not speed you want just the commitment to steady mileage & increase it ever so slowly - running gives me time to think & get away from worries , chores, daily grind etc - I never thought in a million years I would take up this malarky but just shows you you never know how things will pan out !!!!!!!!!!!
Try to enter a 5k to give yourself a goal, if I didn't enter things then I know I would probably just eventually dwindle down to doing nothing - It doesn't matter about your time now it just matters you finish - & don't forget if you want me to be with you I will - xx
I've messed about with my nickname as on another forum I tend to ramble on, so hence the new name Ramblin' Rose!!! but its still the same old Nessie x
Brilliant you have entered a 5k, so pleased - as you say its a start & we all have to start somewhere !!! I said I would be with you & if thats what you'd like I'll run with you - we are at a family wedding in Scotland 18th July so when is your run?
I promise you I wont be at all offended if you want to do this yourself - so please please don't feel you got to have me there - its just up to you how you feel xx Or If you want to wait till your'e doing longer runs thats fine, whatever feels good for you x
Have been off sick this week with a pig of a cold & terrible sore throat ( good for hubby 'cos I haven't been able to nag him!!!) so no running this week but may try one this week end as I have a couple of 10ks coming up soon.
I've also entered a 10mile midnight walk in June in aid of a hospice so need to brush up my walking skills soon.
Busy day yesterday at home, eldest lad moved out to live with girlfriend & youngest lad went off on tour with his rock band - I am pleased eldest has set up home as I think its good for them to stand on their own two feet eventually - youngest is going to Uni in Sept , so we are going to sell hous e& get a boat to live on (2 beds 'cos youngest will return home sometime in hols with his washing no doubt!!!!) Unfortunately we are still having to work so need to find suitable mooring to commute to work etc
Hope you are coping & remember take one day at a time Nessiex
Back again, and inspired once more by the marathon so have started a new thread...
Emma, know that feeling!
I have started a new thread so let's DO IT!
wobblers to runners...
Strump, how are you doing??(Running & coping??) Thinking of you, just pop in when you feel up to it.
Iv' got another sore throat, had one two weeks ago - must stop drinking out of damp galsses!!!!!!!!!
Doing Bristol 10k on Sunday 10th May & another 10k on Monday 11th May - (that should be interseting!! -) Will let you know how I get on.xx
BS - Howdt doody again ( I used to be Plodderama or Plod on the previous thread but I rambled on so much on another one I decided to change my nickname but its still the same old Nessie!!!. Will pop in on your new thread
Strump speak to you soon TTFN Nessie
Actually it's changed again, from beginner to marathon runner..Well a girl can dream!
Strump just wondering how your'e doing, running & coping with life???
Just pop in when you feel up to it - hope you are okay though.
I did Bristol 10k - 69mins which was 7mins faster than last year & 1min faster than the Devizes 10k I did in March - So getting there slowly but surely, I was meant to do anoter 10k the following day but when Ichecked their web site & saw it was nearly all fast club runners I chickened out BUT I did a run on my own 5.9miles in 64mins & if I had pushed on & ran a bit further I would have covered 10k in I think less time than the Britol one the day before - Soooooooooooooo theres life in the old girl yet!!!
Take care TTFN Nessie
Hi Nessie & fellow runners
Been a tough several weeks, it appears i wasnt coping re mum at all...kept blacking out etc, my heart wouldnt stop racing! Was banned by GP from running etc and driving. Im now on beta blockers which appear to be helping.
Ive returned to work on a part time basis (mainly due to my back problems) and work is helping me alot.
My 5k is 5th July, Nessie, please dont worry hun, just be with me in spirit....my friend is running with me to keep me going, because i know its going to be hard with so much time off running.
Wasnt the marathon great!! So wish i had got a place. *oopps forgotten to enter for next year* god is it to late do you think?
Hope everyone is well n dandy xxxxxx *loving the new nick name Nessie*
Well Hello everyone....
Strump - ((hug)) what can I say, sorry you are having a rotten time of it - good that you have a goal to work towards in July and fin aid of a very worthy cause
Nessie and Blithe
My hat off really and truly to all those who entered the Flora London Marathon. I went to support our local heroic runners and really entered in to the spirit of the day - it was fantastic. atmosphere.
Next race for me is the great south in October - is 10 miles & don't feel confidentat this stage as am a bit of a plodder at mostly 10k distances Did last sundays 10k in 1.8 minutes but had strong wind off the sea for the last 4k Really want to get under that 1 hour, my best time is 1.4minutes
Still must keep upping the mileage bit by bit
Ramblin Rose is great new name Nessie
Strump glad you have a friend to go with you, (but I will be with you in spiritxx) don't worry about having had time off you will be able to do it, just go slow & steady - Are you able to go out walking?, 'cos if you can that will help you build up your stamina & you can gradually increase your time out on your feet.
MRF welcome back, glad you popped in to let us know how you are, you will do the 10m no problem plenty of time to increase mileage before October.
We are on a par with times me thinks, I did Bristol 10k in69mins - (very hot day )& in March did 10k in Devizes in 70mins (BIG hill for 3miles then horrid head wind & freezing rain towards end of rn) & last year Bristol 10k took me 76mins. My next race is Bristol half Mara in Sept unless I find a local 10k before then as I would love to get nearer 60mins. I did a run on my own the day after the Bristol 10k & did 5.9m in 64mins - if I had just gone a tadge further I would have done the 10k in less than my last effort of 69mins???
God don't I waffle on sorry if youv'e all lost he will to live reading all that
Guess Ramblin' Rose is avery apt nick n\ame
Take care speak to you soon Nessie xx
Being back in my old job is helping, can walk miles on a shift lol, i will start training this week mind you.
Your doing great gals xxxxx
Hi Srump, logging on in work so haven't got my pic organized - still same old Nessie though.
Glad work is helping - all that walking!!!! but it will be good for you when you can get outside for a bit.
I ran 3 days on the trot last week , all ok, I had never done that before - ususally have a day or two between runs - Will have to start inceasing mileage again in preparation for Bristol Half mara.
You take care now & let me know how your'e doing & not just the running xxxx
Hello to MRF hope all is going well TTFN Nessie
Feeling very lazy today as usually like to get out there on a saturday..... have got a 5k tomorrow (one of the organised fun(?) runs which attracts every level of runner from local running clubs) and will want to get round it quicker than last year (which was 35m and it was a very HOT day as I recall)
How is your training going Strump?
Nessie did i hear you right about buying a boat ??? house or canal?? That is precisely what we are both considering.....selling up, downsizing and re-locating to the west country.
Take Care all
Strump hope you are managing ok, let us know how your're doing xx
Hey MRF - what part of the West Country??? We have put house on the market & have a mooring but can't get boat till we sell house, we are looking at a wide beam/dutch barge. Eldest lad left home to set up with his girlfriend & youngest lad goes to Uni in Sept - so thought we would downsize to a two bed & Hubby loves boats & water so........................................ Watch this space
Hope your running is going ok - I'm a bit sore in the hamstring dept as I did a hard / steep 5.36miles on Fri in 58mins & on Sunday did 10k run in 67mins & then walked 3miles home with a bit of riunning at the end cos it was pouring & I was getting cold.
TTFN Nessie xx
