Lurking no more!
Hello Mal by the way from earlier
Hi, thanks Stripes and Silver. Sorry for the short posts. I sometimes feel like I haven't got anything very interesting to say so I say nothing.
Hello Booey too.
Exciting things have been happening for us, we got a beautiful Dalmatian puppy this morning. She's lovely and has been really good so far. Hopefully I'll be able to run with her when she is old enough. For the moment I'm dying to get her vaccinations sorted so I can go for some lovely long walks with her and the kids.
I've had a go at planning a little route for tomorrow so lets hope I didn't miss any glaringly obvious problems and end up wading through streams etc! I'm excited to be running with my lovely twin sister on Friday, she has to slow her pace quite a lot to run with me but we're always more out of breath from laughing than running by the end.
Is that a bit better?!
Hey Mal, I've never got anything interesting to say but I don't let it stop me
Great news about the puppy, my partner and step-daughter keep dropping hints that we should get one but we are all working full time at the moment so it just isn't practical.
Its must be good that you can plan a run with your sister, hope it goes well. Sure that having someone you are close to to run with must be a great help.
I am hoping to do a race with my brother who is 7 years younger than me and very fit but he managed to break his ankle a few weeks ago so its not gonna happen for a good while. Can't believe the lengths he has gone to to avoid me
You two made me laugh!
Stripes, your brother's showing some fairly impressive dedication to avoid running with you. Or is it an evil masterplan to train lots while your brother can't? Just how competitive are you??
I'm lucky that even when I go back to work I work nights so they'll still always be someone here for the dog.
Sorry to hear your wife didn't want you to go Silver, no advice for you but have you explained how much your wife's continued support means to you? Sorry, probably been done to death but I can't see why she wouldn't be supportive of something you're working so hard to achieve.
I hardly ever get to run with my twin because we both have such busy lives but she only lives an hour away so try to every now and again. She's the one who got me into running. I've had cabin fever tonight with a clingy baby wanting to feed lots so can't wait to get out there and run for a bit tomorrow. I'm enjoying it a lot more now I can do a 15 minute stretch at a time, seems more worthwhile somehow.
Blimey don't you lot talk alot haha took me a while to catch up
Newquay was great, we got out loads and saw quite abit although the weather was very hit and miss. We arrived there Friday and it was a beautiful day, had a coffee at costa sitting outside in t-shirt unfortunately that didn't contine. Saturday was my Birthday and it was drizzling all day really, we went to a place called Gwithian to watch a windsurfing event, lovely place down very narrow roads. Went out for curry and drinks in the evening the next couple of days were spent at various places we had marked to look at, Surfing going on on Fistral Beach. Hubby windsurfed at two lovely spots, Stitians Lake and Loe Beach.
Without to much detail I had unexpected womens probs (sorry even thats to much detail but don't know how else to put it) which totally messed my plans for running as I felt like rubbish for 2 days but like I said I had a good time and its always good to get away
Felt bad once I got home for not doing anything but got out with the club last night, we did about 5K and I really enjoyed it so the weekend I will get back into it and push on
Thort I would post that then do another one about you lot
Silver - you have been doing some running in the last few days and all sounds good so whats the decision on the HM? Why don't you just drive yourself there then its easier you don't have to bother your wife? My hubby doesn't always come with me and I am ok driving, although I have not done a HM yet. I think you could do it ok as long as you really do pace yourself and don't mind walking etc
I still think for your first race you should do a 5 or a 10K just to get the feel of what its like, then there will be no stopping you
I hope you are not hungover today, all that wine
Stripes - so pleased you got out with the running club and it went well, will you try and keep going with then now. Nice there is so many people aswell as you can always slot in better where you are comfortable and the garmin is going well I always use mine even with the clubs as do a few others.
Mal - your new pup sounds lovely, like the others I would love a dog but not while we work full time
Silver's soon to be new home haha
Morning Ellie and welcome to our thread
I was treadmill running to start with, but gotta say once I went out on the roads I loved it and have got the bug
Give yourself time to get use to it and see how you feel then
I am a great believer in doing what you really love doing, you just won't keep it up if you don't enjoy it at all
