Lurking no more!
Some funny comments making me chuckle.
Tripes - sorry for the new name, was a typo, even though you do talk it especially when the phone goes into overdrive.
Boo - brilliant pic
Silver - good running, wish I had a tready, not that I could use it
Em - plodding on as always - how are the legs doing? is it this week your fella is back or have I missed a week? Don't know if I'm coming or going
I'm staying positive, Friday is hoping to be a good day, going to shadow a possible new job, hopefully move on to next stage of physio (The Gym!), folks are coming over and going to see a friends band Not a bad outlook. And all that after a 3 day week
Ok, off to review my CV
CV's are so hard!!!! I'm all worn out now Made a start though but need more info from work to finish
Booey - love the pic!!! why is your face not scarlet and where's the grimace?
Silver - the tready is meant to be really good for getting your general run pace up, so I wish I had one for that reason!
Tripes (I think this could stick) - how you feeling today? my legs were buggered after sat of spinning / vibration plate and kettle bells and sunday 11.5 miles.... I did a spin class tonight and my arms are seriously bruised from the handlebars.
Maam - legs are bit better now thank goodness.... OH fly's into Gatwick on wednesday night / thursday morning. To say I am excited is THE understatement of the century. I missed him but two more sleeps!!!! YAY!!!!!
Mal - hello lady! hope you're not drowning in coursework. How's the OU treating you? little'uns doing ok? xxx
Margrit - any more long runs planned? how long have you been running for??
Em - know I was excited to see my OH last year when I went on holiday for 2 weeks. Can't imagine how you must be feeling All I'll say is catch up with you next week
hee hee - yes!!! the long sunday run may have to be replaced with some other form of physical activity!!!
Just thought I would register and say hello. I stopped smoking around a month ago and have been running ever since, I tend to run every other day and Im slowly building my distance and fitness. I have to say that Im finding it very addictive and cant get over how good I feel. Im running 4 miles at a decent pace on a treadmill but got a rude awekening when I went for a road run, Im going to have to get outside and run as much as I can as I found it really difficult, guess its due to my muscles getting used to running on a flat surface (have only just started to use the treadmill on an incline).
Running was a big part of my life at school and was a keen member of Gosforth Harriers (god knows if they still exist) but I packed it all in, 20 years later Im wishing I never stopped.
First real target is to complete next years Great North run in under 2 hours but Im sure I will find something that interests me before then. As some others have said just hope I continue to feel the way I have, love it !
John - welcome and good running. Good to hear that you are enjoying it so very much. I too am looking to do the GNR next year after defering from this year with injury. Keep up the good work and let us know how you get on.
Em - love the post
Silver - agree there was only one answer
Tripes - how you getting on?
Boo - how are the hands? Is the colder weather getting to you, my hands hurt, as does the knee.
Mal - hope you are doing ok
As for me, I'm fed up, but pushing on. My car is annoying as it has an intemittant fault that hasn't happened since march and played up tonight signs of the winter months an unreliable car. My lotto ticket ran out on Sunday and I didn't get chance to renew with trying to sort the car Oh, didn't get my workout done either. Today is just not fair. Here is to tomorrow being better and maybe a nice big lotto win
Staying happy and stong, even if do have the odd grumble
First of all - massive congratulations on giving up smoking. Being an ex smoker myself, I know that its a big deal! Hopefully you're not getting any cravings and to substitute one habit for another is great - especially when your new habit is running. Stick with it!! I basically traded an unhealthy lifestyle for a much more health focussed one. Smoking was my biggest stupidest mistake to make but also my biggest achievement to give up!
Maam - hope the car is ok!!! I got two cars at the moment - one has a potential head gasket and the other one (both 10 years old) I got pulled by the police in as i'd missed the MOT. oops. that was embarrassing last week on the M27!!
Silver - lol - I must've caught it off you and your earlier posts (mrs silver in the garage??)
Hope everyone else is ok - i'm watching my recording of the great british bake off. Tonight i've been cleaning, painting, washing to get the place sorted for tomorrow when I bring home my man Cannot wait!!!!!
Come on then Maam and Emma which one of you'se has hacked my settings and changed the username?
Hi John. Welcome to the most serious thread on the forum.
First chance I've had since Sunday to upload the race and guess what. The watch clocked 13.09 miles so my total for the month was 99.99 miles. Gutted
Found this picture of me and my mate after 4 miles on Sunday(I'm 298), can't think what we are looking at
Tripes - loving the new name also when you enter a race you should always go by their mileage and time so you have done 100 miles garmins are not that accurate. Oh and love the piccie and yes you do look like you are looking right at her bottom haha
John - welcome to the forum and well done on quitting smoking we have a giggle on here so keep calling to see us and let us know how you are doing
Maam - my arthritis is great but I am getting side affects from the methorexate this past week or so I wont go into detail I am due my first injection today and hospital said they will talk to me about it when I get there so unsure what they will say until then and just when I thought it was all going well and I am a tad worried as I go on hols tomorrow
Em - enjoy your OH being home
Well I finish at lunchtime today and off to Fuerteventura tomorrow yeehaa cant wait so I will catch up with you all when I am back
Boo - have a great holiday.
Tripes - loving the new name.
Em - sounds like you have been busy
I'm on lazy day off and trying to motivate but in quite a bit pain, waiting for tablets to kick in x
Ok, housework done - ish, CV calling but first exercise and eating
Speaking of the tready - how is it going? The sessions getting any easier?
I'm fortunate in that my car alarm doesn't keep going off (touch wood it doesn't start), it is an electronic accelerator control fault, it is intermittant, flashes on and off occasionally but once it starts it does it every 15 secs or so for the whole journey. Push it for long enough (about 10 miles) and it cuts power, reduces throttle response and makes your top speed 19mph! Hence I don't go far in her anymore, it's been like this for about 2.5 years and even the ford garage can't fix it I'm lucky in that it has only cut power on me twice, unfortunatley both times on the motorway Praying for that big lotto win so can change car, but still hoping & praying. Would solve so many problems, but miracles just don't seem forthcoming
On the bright side I've got a job, a great OH, good ish health and brilliant friends
Really must go do this CV
Oh, did my upper body cardio again tonight followed by some crunches Arms are aching, heaven help my legs when I hit the running again
Tripes - LOVE the pic. I'd be staring at her bot too to be honest - she looks really perky!!!
Right - better pack the car up now - I'm off to gatwick!!! YAY!!! you all know why
See you next week Em - have fun
Enjoy the homecoming
