Lurking no more!
Ha Ha Ha.
I am trying to work out how much a Road Bike and all the accessories will cost. Can't believe how expensive it all is. May just stick to running!
Tripes - good to hear you are looking at a tri, I'd love to do one. For now I'd settle just for running. My progress is that I'm now allowed to cycle The not so good news is that my physio is not so confident on my running in time for silverstone. They are currently concerned since I still can't straighten my knee, if it doesn't get straight I'll have to be referred back for possible more surgery
As for my job application - they have extended the closing date to the 6th November so very much still waiting I hate waiting!
I'm loosing heart with everything at the moment, trying to stay positive but so tired it's draining me. Since I injured my knee I've had about 4 full nights sleep Sorry for being down, but just need a pick me up big style
Sorry to hear you are so down Maam. Hopefully the knee won't need surgery.
Are you into cycling? I haven't got a clue where to start
As for the job, I know how you feel. I have actually applied for one for the first time in over 20 years and am waiting to hear. The one I was offered wasn't up to much so have to sort something else out.
Maam! you can cycle. Then you'll straighten your leg, then you'll run a half marathon..... I bought my first EVER bike at the beginning of this year - a white boardman mountain bike and i love it!!! so much fun just finding the routes you can go on a bike that are scenic!! and nostly with a nice pub serving food at the end of it!!
When you are back out running and once you've done your first race back - we'll all have a little slice of cake to celebrate with you! its in all of our long term running goals to have you back out there!!!
Tripes and Maam - job hunting is bleuk - hope you both get something worthwhile and paying well!!!
Silver - your running mate does the ten miles the same speed as my brother. Pah - barely worth doing it if you're only running for an hour (lol).... I could not imagine being that quick. How must it feel??!!!
Anyway - my new thumbnail pic is of me with this years GSR medal.....
Maam, hope you're feeling in better fickle today, getting to cycle is good news and as Emma says it a step in the right direction.
Stripes, hats off if you're planning a Tri, I could do one as I swim like a brick!
Silver, you got a decent resitance session in, carrying that bad boy!
Emma, nice pic, how are the legs after the GSR?
Still no report done, I've been lazy! and a little crazy, I signed up for another race on Sunday evening, a 10 miler on the 10th of November, almost signed up for a half a week later but I managed too stopped myself. A gentle 3 miles last night, in truth a little slower than I would have liked, but its good to give a little back to the group, planning to do some intervals this evening at the track if it's free,
Emma - congrats on your race time thats brilliant very well done
Stewart - also congrats to you also an excellent time and well done
I had a fun packed Birthday weekend Saturday went to the Rugby and watched Saints v Saracens we lost lol but great atmosphere had a kebab after haha Sunday went to Northampton street fair and out for a meal which was great, I love the throw you upside down rides Monday Birthday and went into town and spent money had my make-up done and then purchased some had a lovely meal then family round in the evening
Now all that is over I shall endeavour to get in some serious running and lose some lbs hehe
Maam - try not to be to down your knee needs to be proper sorted so you can get back to running it takes time but I am sure all will come good for you.....keep your chin up
More intense club running now the dark nights are here
Silver - I fancy doing another half before xmas I only have one raced booked before and thats a 5 mile santa run
I'm feeling a bit better today thanks. Thank you for all your help and encouragement. I know I should stay strong and keep my chin up, just sometimes is easier said than done.
Today I have got quite a lot done. More Christmas shopping done, food shopping done, treat to myself (some nice new earings), ordered the new guest bed to be delivered in time for Christmas, loft stuff ordered for garage to create more space, fed fish, afternoon nap, letter written to seller of the apartment I bought and email to Watchdog in hope that I can claw something back and not sit on the fact that I've lost 60k Euros. It's a long shot but I'm living in hope of it pulling through or winning the lottery. Now to chill out and hide.
Stewart - your mad on your races, but go for it, sure you'll do great.
Silver - glad you've decided on the Bedford one.
Boo/Em - you two just keep going Hope you had good birthday too, sure you've both just had or about to have one. Boo, with you on the rides too, I did Alton Towers for my birthday
Mal - hope you are doing well xxx
Santa run - I'd love to, but slight snag, it's too far for me. Must get Carl to get the bike sorted for me so I can get out and about. Not looking forward to it being cold, but better than nothing. As for enjoying riding, not in the past, I'm afraid of bikes after falling off them, having broken ones, being knocked over by one. Things might be different now, you never know.
Ok, off for dinner before feeding the fish yet again. Should bake too but that can wait until tomorrow me thinks, or will do later if get the energy.
Swansea 1 up
I'm making macaroons Nom nom
Hey - Macaroons...... nom!
Just been out for a little run as 1) I didn't go out this morning as I laid in 2) I didn't go out at lunchtime and ate loads.
I ended up running at the back of the 'summer starter' group of my running club - it was a 11.5 min mile but nice to see how the new guys are doing and to remind me how far i've come (and how it doesn't take long to progress a lot).
Home now, showered and ate a tiny tea due to my nommy lunch. Got the ghost run tomorrow night. I have my head torch ready!!!
