Thank you for the welcome, Maamalade and Silvertop  its such a high, isn't it, when you're wheezing and not sure if you can make it and you do.

Wow, what a cake! 

18/04/2013 at 19:43

The cake was a def WOW, made by my Uncle to my request of design, so pleased with how it turned out.

Still taking it easy as knee still not great, collapsed today

Eva - good to see you still have high spirits and are still enjoying.

Mal - how you doing? Fab I hope.

Boo - don't run in too hot a day but enjoy

I'm OK, doing the worlds most gentle exercise class for pregnant women. It's dull but better than doing nothing. I have a couple of similar DVDs too but I'd rather be running.

Are you alright after collapsing? Sorry to see you are still having such trouble. Not fair!

What a fantastic cake Ma'am - a masterpiece! Maybe you could do one for my boys next birthday.

I've been on a stag do to Brighton yesterday and feeling the worse for wear this morning BUT it didn't stop me running along the prom 3.5m this morning at 8am. Cleared the cob-webs away and the weather was beautiful. Now I need to sleep - out at a 40th birthday do at 8 this evening!

Loving the running again!

Hi all

Feeling a bit better, knee still iffy but survived chester zoo yesterday and full day diving today so can't be all that bad.

Silver - cake is not a problem, done to order, made by my uncle so let me know and he can give a quote. Very reasonable given work goes into them.  If you are on facebook his site is create a cake leeds, as you can tell they do travel as I picked up in leeds and drove to chester.

I haven't done kettlebell, have eaten too much but had lovely weekend.

Hope everyone is well x

hellooooo everyone - not been getting the updates from this thread so missed out on a few posts again.

Cake looks great Maam and love the outfit and - well, just fancy dress in general!!!

Marathon envy big style this week, so am going to do my first one next year. Either Brighton or hopefully, London.  Fingers crossed for the ballot!!

Had a few days off work, thurs/fri/mon so dreading going back tomorrow.  want to be a lady of leisure!!   I'd dedicate so much more time to running!!

Got my stretchy relaxing class tonight, may use the opportunity for a sleep, trying to walk more but I'm bored of "very gentle exercise" already.

Am baking cheesy bread, I was trying to be lazy and let the breadmaker mix and knead but I put too much in and it hasn't. Now I'm performing emergency bread rescue proceedures, wish us luck!

How's the running going fit and healthy running people?

24/04/2013 at 13:36

Good luck with it Mal, sounds like you are having fun!

I've been back at the hospital today to see the Rhumatologist, she says definately something wrong but doesn't know what, so blood tests, 4 x-rays now have to wait for another ultrasound, the Dr to consult with my Colitis specialist then to go back for a hopeful decision on what next.

Feeling exhausted so trying to rest some, but not working so well

24/04/2013 at 19:06

Mal!!!   mmmm cheesey bread!! send some my way.  its like my two favourite things in one hit!!!!

Maam - sorry you're tired! I hope they can fix you soon x

26/04/2013 at 23:33

Oh Maam, I'm so sorry you are having such a tough time. 

Em the cheesy bread take one in the bread maker went horribly wrong despite rescue attempts so I was forced to ditch the cheating machine and make it by hand. It was perfect (I hate cheesy bread or anything particularly cheesy but Mr Mal and children love it) and I felt angelic for properly homemaking bread!

Had a long 3 days with uni and my volunteering so hopeing to get out for a walk tomorrow to relax me a bit, shame it's going to rain, we were planning a beach trip.

Where is everyone, are they all to busy actually running?!

28/04/2013 at 19:01

Actually running? well only if you count the treadmill Mal.

Ive been at a wedding this weekend so Im knackered and haven't had time to run this weekend. I Waldorf eaten and drunk loads so the diets dissappeard for the weekend. 

Hope everyone is well and having fun!

Hi all

Been a mad weekend, friends over yesterday so food and drinks, then today bit more social.

Just finished packing as off to Edinburgh in the morning for work, back Friday.  Now time to chill out and pack the laptop away

Hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Hello from sunny Edinburgh, finally at hotel and glad to have kicked shoes off, first day in heals!!!

30/04/2013 at 20:29

Have fun Maam.

Tready counts Silver.


01/05/2013 at 18:22

Hi Mal, how you doing? Can't be long now, or does it just feel like its ages since you said?

Edinburgh is still sunny, and still loving it here, would much rather be here all the time

01/05/2013 at 22:01

Hi all..... so i've been procrastinating a fair bit of late - i went running at lunchtime today and did my exercise dvd tonight - its called Total Body Toner by the Firm and i am not joking, its a killer.  I only use the heavy weights for all the sculpting and I am feeling it in my arms and my thighs from the lunges.  Killer.

Plan on an early morning run tomorrow to set me up for the day.  I put my name in the ballot for London Marathon next year so all keep your fingers crossed for me.

Planning on doing the first ever Bournemouth Marathon in October this year too - its only half an hour down the road for me and even though I may get into London, there's 125,000 people in the ballot and nowhere near that amount get a place so..... fingers crossed!!

Mal - how big is your bump now?  Are you loving being pregnant again?  And not liking cheesey bread - wow, I am miss cheese.  I love all things cheesey!!

Maam - Edinburgh - how lovely!  My sis is going to a campsite called Sandy Balls in the new forest this weekend so we may go down there and visit her with our push bikes.... I had forgotten its the bank holiday - what a treat!

Stripes still about?  Stewart C?  Booey on her holibobs still?  can't wait for the pic of her new doglet when she gets back.  So jealous - I desperately want a dog.  I have loads of different pictures of random dogs that I use for my twitter picture now.  I will be the dog equivalent of a mad old cat woman in a few years time.....

Hope you're all good x

Maam, it's aaaaages yet, only 24 weeks pregnant due 22 August. Edinburgh sounds lovely, we went there a few years ago for a wedding, was beautiful.

Em, Total Body Toner sounds excrutiating, so probably brilliant! Good luck in the ballet. Bump is definitely bumpy, will post a pic when I get around to it. *shudder at mention of cheese, Mr Mal was scoffing cheese scones and making me feel ill earlier, blurgh*

Being a mad old dog lady sounds more fun than all the cats, at least there's all the amazing walks you could do.

Where is everyone, it's very quiet on here. Is it coz I'm here talking about all things non-runner related? 

*Quickly thinks of a sentance with the word running in*

I passed on my enthusiasm for the C25K tonight, it was lovely to watch someone else get really fired up about the possibility of doing something they'd never felt they could do. Am also a bit jealous, wonder if I'll ever get back in to running again!
