Was it the wheat in the scone SL?  Sounds like a very quick reaction.  Hope you feel better soon from it.

This one is 4 mornings a week, same hours as the other though.  It's the sorting of holiday child care that will be a pain!

A run this weekend would be nice

I don't know Cinders - it's likely that it was the wheat but it could just be because I've been eating natural unadulterated food then had something cooked and processed.  Still in agony and needing to be sick but it's not coming up 

A run this weekend might be a miracle for me

4 miles done this morning across the common.  2 massive mozzie bites on my legs though.  Not an attractive look.

Hope everyone is feeling great this morning.  Already watched our first gold medal.  

Off to do some gardening!

p.s - my legs are back

Yay HTF   You'll be the fit one at Beachy then   I will get out for a run this weekend!

Watching the diving at the mo....

Hope you're feeling better this morning SL.

Great stuff cinders

Yay, we'll all get together at last - I've run with both you lovely ladies but not in the same race 

Yes HTF - I ate a scone and boy have I paid for it, still peuking up yesterday and had a detox migraine - just when I'd got over them all, I was calling myself some very bad names Friday night!  Good news about the legs, I was feeling almost ready but set myself back by my own stupidity.  Have you had any cooked food, if you haven't don't be tempted - I made myself really ill 

Just saw on fb that Spence did the North Downs 50 Ultra - good man!

We had a fantastic day yesterday, me & kc went to the most fantastic wedding reception ever - I let hubby stay at home to build the retaining wall in the garden so I can carry on with it .

 It was held in a field with lovely woods next to it and ponds/lakes all around.  There was a marquee  but the weather was so nice everyone was outside listening to music.  We all bought our own picnics or barbeques (bananas, watermelon & dates for me) and people just chilled out in the sun.  The bride was one of my son's friends since he was 13 and she's in a band with her hubby so there were lots of musical people there and in the evening the band did a few songs then all the musician mates just got up when they wanted and jammed.  

The woods were all lit up in the evening with tea lights and strings of lights in tubes - just magical, and instead of maing normal swings in the trees they used armchairs and sofas plus there were two treehouses.  One of them was the 'bridal suite' and was like a posh hotel room inside with an en-suite - about 50ft up in the air!  

The dress code was 'vintage glamour' and most people made a really good effort so lots of girls in floaty flowery dresses and gents in hats and braces, it was so so good, most people were drinking but no one was stupid drunk.  I went to a wedding reception at a golf club last month, she'd spent a bloody fortune doing it all 'properly' and it wasn't nearly as good as this one 

This was the invite incase you didnt see it last time and this was the venue.

 Apart from that I ended up with another peuking migraine last night, still the fallout from Friday.

Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine again today x

Sounds an amazing reception SL.  Can't get the link to work but remember you talking about the invite before.  Sounds like she really got the day she and the groom wanted

No running here, made the most of the weather and been down the beach  

12/08/2012 at 20:47

Double bonus there SL, a good day out, and hubby doing jobs.

Cinders - move your arse!

No running here, but fully expect to get out tomorrow.  London was fab today with such a special atmosphere.  Will try and get tickets for the paralympics.

12/08/2012 at 21:09

I've been a lazy git today and done nothing but in my defense I have had a headache today - still paying for that bloody scone 

Sounds like you had a great day HTF even with the nose bleed 

I'd have been at the beach too if I had one near Cinders  It's been a gorgeous day hasn't it Cinders.

Try googling whetsted farm weddings and you should see some piccys of the place


12/08/2012 at 22:40

ps - have a look at my fb wall, my daughter posted a short video of her mates swinging in the armchairs in the woods - gives you a feel for the day 

12/08/2012 at 23:18

Will have a look SL

Been gorgeous and my face is glowing!  Watching the closing ceremony now, it's a bit bonkers!

13/08/2012 at 11:42

I missed half of it but got the last hour - not really sure it was worth staying up for, the opening was better - apart from Sir Macca .  I've just dropped kc off at athletics club for the start of the Startrack week - wish I could chill today but got to do mega clean up for social worker coming early tomorrow morning, it's my supervision, they say it's to support me but I wish they'd just sod off a let me get on with it, if I need help I'll ask for it 

What's everyone up to today?  And where are Yeo, ST, Apps et al?

Hi all.   Hope we are all well.   I pop in now and again to give you an update.

19 months booze and ciggie free now.   Been a bit depressed recently but still managed to do 7 marathons and 2 ultras so far this year.   Completed North Downs Way 50 on Saturday in 12 hours.   Think I could do that in under 10 next year.

Fantastic going Spen on all fronts - inspirational  

Oh well, today didn't go as planned, I took kc to athletics then went to the supermarket.  There was a message waiting for me when I got home saying she wouldn't join in and kept running off out of the field so they asked me to take her home.  When I got there she'd joined in something and calmed down so they said seh could stay but she had to behave.  Within an hour of getting home I got another call, she'd been running off again and punching and kicking people   So  back I went again, the head coach said she was in the reception area sitting on the sofa but she wasn't there so I spent half an hour searching a blooming great field for her.  She found me in the end, she was gutted that she had to come home and really wanted to stay, she thought it was me making her so I put her right and said that it was the coaches who'd said she can't stay and went on a bit about punching people etc.  It would have been easy to let her veg infront of the tele all afternoon but I said she couldn't do that or the laptop and she finally entertained herself.  Oh well, my unpeaceful day was pretty hectic in the end and the rest of the week won't be much better now, especially as the weather's turned and I can't even chuck her out into the garden - There's a nice thunder storm going on now, lightening and all 

I've stuck to my raw food all day and had 2700 cals, no migraines, headache or sickness - I reckon that scone's worked it's way through

Hi Guys!  I'm back!  Cyprus was wonderful - extremely hot but I didn't go there for rain!  Managed to keep on track with my GNR training schedule - 42 miles over 10 runs in 16 days so managed to burn a few calories too!  As for the booze - well I didn't get drunk but we did have wine with most meals.  That was then.... holiday's over now so I'm back to not drinking at home.  I seem to be able to manage that - I don't think I'll ever give up booze completely but am happy with the control I now have over it rather than it has over me.

Back to fat club tomorrow - don't think it'll be too bad as I only had 3 icecreams all the time I was out there - and those were on the days after I'd finished that week's training schedule so I figured I earned them.  Not bad going considering that the icecream van visits the complex every day.

Missed most of the Olympics - did manage to see Mo Farah in the 10k though.  The locals thought I was some kind of loonie screaming at the tv!  Watched the closing ceremony but have yet to watch the opening ceremony.  I thought it was just me that didn't think the closing ceremony was all that.

Hope you're all well - can't pretend that I'm going to read back over the posts - my 19 year old managed to save me some washing and ironing to return to and I have a 4.5 mile run to do this morning.  Have fun everyone

Welcome back Trigger, great holiday running

Well done spen, fab going

Hope today is calmer SL.  Is she allowed back next time for athletics?

Got an interview at 11am and I feel totally  

14/08/2012 at 10:15

Good luck Cinders - fingers crossed xx

14/08/2012 at 11:46

All done, phew.  In and out in 10 mins, don't know if that's good or bad.  Tripped down the steps on the way out, oops!
