Lurking no more!
Stripes - Stay strong I know you will get through it all, will be there for your family, do them very proud and will find time for your own grief, even if by hitting the gym or running the streets. Keep that chin high and remember he is in a better place now with no more suffering. Try and get you step daughter to talk about it, I know it is very very hard, but from personal experience bottling it up really doesn't help. My nan died in 2004 and I bottled it up until 2008 when I was with a counceller for something else. She got me talking and helped me to see just how much I wasn't living my life and how much I wasn't moving on or grieving. I wouldn't want her to go through the same.
Stripes, don't you know phones and water don't mix too well. Try taking it appart, ie sim, battery, phone and leave to dry naturally for a day to give it chance to fully dry out. Oh, and don't drop it in the bath again
Thats it, Great North Run deferred to 2013. Disappointed, but know need to get fit first. Here is to hoping I'm on running form over winter ready for Silverstone with the girls
I will be thinking of you on Thursday stripes. Good luck with the reading. It will mean a lot to a lot of people so good for you and don't worry if you get choked, or lose it halfway through - it happens to most people!
There's nothing you can do for anyone except let them do their thing - grief is a strange thing and it manifests differently in different people. Its particularly horrid watching people you care about so upset. I cry at complete strangers funerals!
Maam - GNR next year = more time to get stronger and more practice! The knee will be good as new by then!
Silver - FYI, i'm at 19 miles for July so far, but don't expect a vast increase for the next week - its 26 degrees at 6am in Kos, so any runs will be a bonus (and slow)
Em - have a great holiday x
Thanks - counting down the hours - sat at work trying to finish everything off..... why should I care though, I finish here end of July!!!
Because it is the kind of person you are, don't like to leave things half done
Lol - I could well be turning over a new leaf though.... didn't go for my run this morning, opted to water the plants and put a last load of washing on before we go!
Sure the run can be put on hold, after all, you've a holiday to get ready for, and by the sounds of it, fun and games balancing the weight of the bags
Em - have a fantastic holiday you lucky devil sooooooooo wish I was going away I am very jealous have lots of fun and enjoy the sun
Stripes - best wishes for tomorrow am sure your reading will go fine and its really lovely of you to do it, your OH will be proud of you on such a sad day
Didn't end up running last night I felt abit wierd not sure why but feel fine today so planning a steady run with the club later
Boo - take it steady, could be side effects to the meds that are making you feel a bit funny. Enjoy your run though, for that I'm very jealous
Yaay I got out for a run with the club last night, did the norm 5K but I felt good and was one of the front runners for a change I think sometimes having a good few days off can really help
We celebrated last night as we have been in our house 4 years had a chinese takeaway and a bottle of vino lovely oh and my lovely OH even got me flowers bless him
The steroid injection is defo working, first thing in the morning is so much better I am walking down the stairs normally again collecting perscription later to start meds
*waves* hope your all ok and Stripes am thinking of you today
Boo - that is brilliant news on everything
Stripes - you are in my thoughts today, hope all goes as well as can do and sure you'll do your family really proud, hugs x
Silver - What you up to?
Mal - How is married life going?
Em - Hope the hol is going well x
My mission for the weekend is to get out and run at least once!
Mal - sounds like a good plan, but did you give into the ice cream? Silver encouragement isn't necessary this time, Mal has a craving to overpower us all
Silver - I don't think I'm overdoing it, just doing what I need to so I stay feeling better. I did push it yesterday with 2 weight workouts, one in the morning that didn't feel like anything so did another one in the afternoon which felt really good and not sore today so cardio it is then having the weekend off to party!
Stripes - hope you are ok from yesterday and that your family are holding on.
Boo - how is the pain free (ish) going?
Enjoy the running everyone, put one in for me too
