Welcome along Catboy and Mr_O JR Well done on losing the weight as well Catboy, I've put on 1.5st since quiting 14 months ago as I just appear to have moved my binging from from booze to food (although apparently it's not that uncommon to do that).
Have you banned yourself from all pizza Mr O, or just the takeaway type? You can make some lovely homemade ones with much nicer toppings than the dodgy ones you get down the local takeaway!
I had a girlie night in on Friday with some of the girls at my running club. It was my coach's birthday so a few of us were invited for the evening for a little Wii dance competition! It was fun, but unlike SL and Mr O, it only serves to remind me how much I miss it when I'm around people that are drinking. Maybe that's because when I go out these days it's with people who don't drink as much as I did so I don't see them totally hammered, falling over and repeating themselves, they just get drunk enough to have a good time. Still, at least I went as tend to avoid going out these days unless I have to.
Also had a good chat with my coach about my knee, and basically she's advised that I walk the VLM and has also banished me from running club until May, in the nicest possible way of course! She thinks I need to keep working with the physio to sort it out and if the physio is right that it seems to be the jolting of running which is making it worse then it's best to just do walking at the moment as running in the week is probably causing a knock on effect to my long sessions on a Saturday. It's disappointing and will take a few days to properly get my head round, but deep down I know I have to do what is right in the long term.
Cheers for the welcome folks, it's been a while since I have posted on here
@TST - Sorry to hear that your knee is giving you grief... can you do swimming as a low impact alternative? I have only banned myself from takeaway pizzas, so a homemade one sounds like a great idea!
@Sinbad - I think you've been had by a dummy company posing as Amazon? :-P I guess if you can get in touch with the company it might help? Post Office delivery should go to a depot if they can't deliver it to you...
That sounds really annoying sinbad, no contact details at all?
Hi Mr-OJR and welcome from me too
TST, sorry to hear about the knee. Do you know anyone else doing VLM to get round with?
SL, are you ok, saw on FB you weren't feeling well.
I've been gettting lots of dizzy spells over the past couple of days Cinders, I think it's just my ears and I'm all congested etc. I've been so tired all last week - bordering on proper fatigue but it was probably just this kicking in. I'm feeling a bit better today - yesterday night I felt like I'd been boozing all day and was staggering around when I stood up or felt I was going to fall on my head if I bent down!
I'd be inclined to listen to the physio before the coach TST, anyhow, doesn't matter if you walk it. It's still a fantastic occassion
SL - Hope you are feeling better today. The coach is really just confirming what the physio has already been saying, just waiting for the actual 'you really need to walk London' words from the physio when I go on Thursday morning.
Sinbad - hope you managed to stay off the booze last night. Why don't you go out and run anyway? You know how far your routes are and you can just check the time on the clock before you go out and when you come back. Sometimes what you need is a few sessions without all the technology to take a bit of pressure off yourself and remember why you're doing it in the first place Or maybe to go the gym and do a few miles on the treadmill?
Therapy/counselling tomorrow, then physio on Thursday so really turning out to be a stressful week for me
Hi Folks - thanks for your concerns, the dizzyness is a bit better today but woke up with a blinding migraine instead so took a magic pill and stayed in bed till 10.30 instead. Still feeling woozy (the pill knocks me out) so just taking it easy. I haven't run since last wednesday Sinbad - haven't felt well since then.
Hope you managed to stay off the booze sinbad - as TST said, you can go for a run anytime - you don't need to know how far or how fast all the time - just enjoy a run.
Hope it goes well at therapy tomorrow and fingers crossed for the physio's kind words. If she says walk then at least you've time to get your head round it before the day itself. xxx
Hope everyone is ok today x
Training, what's that?
Are you still ok for the weekend SL? How is HTF, not heard from her for a while.
sinbad, hope you get the order sorted soon. Can't you just go out anyway, without the Garmin?
Well done for getting out Sinbad
I'll be ok for the weekend Cinders - I think the fatigue last week was all part of this lurgy so it should be on it's way out now. I feel better again today - a bit woozy from the migraine as usual but just taking it easy and relaxing. HTF is fine too, chatted to her the other day and she's had a bit of a wobble because she hasn't managed to get in as much training as she'd like but we've said we'll walk as much of it as we have to but we'll be there
Morning, just. Went back to bed after droppping Thomas off. Feel very .
What time does it start on Saturday SL? Hope you both do fab
I think me & HTF start at 9am - it's staggered for walkers,normal runners and 'elite' runners
