Lurking no more!
I've just got in from work, to do some more... work!
Have a run on the tready for me Silver, I'm really missing the tranquility of a nice run and the satisfaction of getting past the pain barrier
Sounds like you are having great fun there Silver.
As for FB I'm on there and it depends on what you want as to who you add. I use it to keep up with what folks are up to and to keep in contact with some of my friends around the world. I tend to ignore all the games and bits and pieces, but up to you as what you think. Hope that helps.
Ok back to the CV for me, got to be ready for the morning and I'm not with it to write. Bad news is my middle name, or is that 'doesn't sleep!'
CV all done and handed in. Job shadowing went really well I think. Now just to wait for the application to become available to formally apply Guess the headache will start again then Oh, and I don't put my photo on it. It shouldn't matter what I look like to do the role so not relevant, bit like dob and ethnic origin.
I get where you are coming from with FB, can be good and bad. I have kept threatening to remove me from it, but then I'd lose touch with some friends so good to keep and use as I want.
Drum roll please for the next big announcement! Today at physio I have been on a bike!!! How good is that???? To me this is such an acheivement in getting this far. They started me on a floor one, then to a normal style one which I still haven't got quite enough movement to use so stick to the floor one. I'm also allowed to try and use my stepper again The bad news is that it has made me realise just how much strength I have lost coz couldn't even manage 5 minutes on the bike with no resistance He is still hoping to get me to Silverstone though
Ok, now I'm off to finish the housework, make the beds, clean the bathrooms, cook dinner and get ready for parents landing tonight for the weekend before going to see a friends band playing. I feel exhausted just thinking about it all.
I've just realised my RW training diary doesn't cover the whole of 2012, it finishes on 30th December!!! How unfair is that? I know I'm sad but I have still been filling it in everyday to give me something to look back on in the future when I feel I'm struggling.
Off to do some sit ups while smelling the food in the slow cooker and wishing parents could teleport here so I can eat.
just been reading back, you were right a very entertaining thread, sounds like you're making progress, and I'm impressed with the crunches, I'm terrible when it comes to core exercises, I don't know if you read any of the other threads in the beginers section, but I ran the 10k on Sunday in 55:44, I was a little disappointed not to get below 55, but that only lasted for a few moments there's a race report in to 10k under 60 minute thread , if your interested.
I had a little mishap on Wednesday with my calf I was doing some intervals and I had just completed my second 800 fast while I was running down hill I slowed up too quickly and tweak it, I've been treating it with heat and a calf guard, It's still a little tight but not painful, I did a test run yesterday, slow 1 mile (12mm) with no problems, I'm just about to head out and try a quicker run over a couple of miles.
I'll let you know how things have gone when I get back, wish me luck.
Stewart - good luck and brilliant to see you on here. Knew you'd fit in well
Yeah getting on well but that for reminding me I've not done my crunches yet, got side tracked with housework. Crunches here I come
Everyone - this is Stewart
That is better, 60 crunches complete
Hope that everyone is having a good weekend. My folks have just set off back north so enjoying the quiet time. Been on my little floor bike thing (parents brought it down as friend has one, like one used at physio). That is 20 mins this weekend on it
Been bit naughty with the diet as went to The Boot Room last night, but was good night out.
Feeling little ropy now though, throat is hurting just hope not coming down with something.
Got some new clothes too for work, bank of Dad strikes again Helps me feel more confident for trying to get this new job Fingers, toes and everything else crossed.
Yeah - i've done no running or spinning since Friday. Officially I have had a lazy weekend apart from the welcome home to my OH of course too much information?
Silver - my heart rate goes straight up to 178 / 181 and neared the 190's during a tempo run. My brother also has a high heart rate and although it gets super high, I don't feel light headed or ill. Just blinking hot and like i've been working hard! 3lbs loss is good too! well done!!
Tripes - how was Paris? Did you get a good run in?
CV - I would never put a picture on it. People judge based on looks so either way - in your favour or against you, is not a good thing when it should be skills and competency based.
FB - I shut down my account. Found it too insincere....and didn't want to be just a 'number' on someone else's page to make it look like they had lots of friends. I kept on having friend culls then shut it down completely. I've had loads more time since then....
Maam - hope its nothing serious re your throat - maybe just a bit tired and an early night will put a stop to that? x
Mal / Booey / John / Margrit / anyone else out there - hope you're all well?
Em - good to see you've had a 'lazy' weekend. Bet good to have the OH home, and no more info needed Glad you're happy though.
On the strepsil to try and tame the throat but doesn't seem to be helping Oh well life goes on.
Hopoe all well. I'm full of cold and feeling very sorry for myself.
Thanks for all the replies to my first post, makes a nice change to other forums where things seem to get lost. I have been running outside and went out with my wife the other day, we just did a steady run of around 3.5 miles but I just about managed it ok. After that I had a few days off as felt I had come down with something, aches/shivers. Got back on the tready last night and clocked up 4.4 miles in 30 mins, not great but Im still only a month into my new regime. Looking forward to getting the kids into bed so I can do another run, knees feel a bit tender but really want to work up another sweat.
Maamalade - hope the cold gets better asap. And thanks again to everyone else for making me feel so welcome.
