awww poor by'eck wish you better soon.I got a kindle for Christmas and i love it.you download books and magazines newspapers etc from amazon.co.uk who own kindle.It takes about 20 seconds to download and is an excellent service.The only question i think is would is little miss use it enough to warrent the initial outlay.I use it when travelling like the tube or if i go on holiday.It saves space and is really easy to carry being so small.But i did buy a neaprene cover for it and also a little clip on light which i use at home.The screen is great and unlike reading on laptops,ipads, etc is matt not gloss so the screen is clear and easy to read. the price of the books is cheaper than the stores but still can be expensive if used a lot.Once charged you dont need to recharge it for up to a month which is brilliant.If ive forgotton anything please ask for more info. and no i havent got any shares in amazon
Well done mini llb and i can see you as a showbiz mum Loula lol
Had a great Gym session and used my heart moniter for the first time enabling my trainer to log all my heart rates which should prove useful soon.
Have good evenings guys and get well wishes to those poorly.
Oh deary me another sicky person....hope you feel better soon By'Eck...
Phantom....Glad you had a good gym session with your trainer..will be interesting to see results from monitoring your heart rates.....Don't use my one at all.....
Well done to Miss LLB..her name will be in lights soon..she must be chuffed to bits Loula.....Well done on your 10 miler....I wouldn't do 20 this weekend though as you only have 2 weeks till your mara......last run of that distance should be 3 weeks before although it has been known for some people to do one 2 weeks before....personally speaking I wouldn't...my last long run was 3 weeks before hand....you need to be tapering now.....maybe try 14/15...but no more......
Eckys are getting back to normal. Thanks everyone for your good wishes.
Little Ecky just ate a full plate of veggies so he is better. Keeping Big Girl off tomorrow as we dont want her to spread it round.
By Eck hope you feel better soon.People are indeed dropping like flies.
by eck, take it easy and hope you feel better soon
physio massaged and ultrasounded the sore bit in my arch and showed me some stretches to do. He thought it was funny when I said I 'just' did a short run of 3 miles, in that way that meant that 3 miles is a long way! 'You runners are a funny bunch' he said.
haven't got a kindle, and to be honest think I prefer a book, but can see how one would be handy when travelling etc, would really keep the weight down when travelling by plane.
Ecky...Glad all the ecky's are feeling better...what a relief for you..
mathschick.....thats good about the physio and getting some stretches to do for the pain..hope it helps....yeah i get funny looks from people when i say i have just been for a wee run and then they ask how far did you go...and they say how far...and follow it by saying they couldn't run for a bus...lol...they are the funny bunch I think...
well done for lillte llb - how exciting for her! (and for big llb too)
Franny - I know, and let's face it, 3 miles? you wonder whether it is worth it! Well, I am building back up, he didn't tell me not to run, so I am happy!! Well, he said see how it is tomorrow and if it is sore don't run for a few days, then start with 5 mins, 10 mins...
yay!! glad the eckys are getting better...hope you do too by'eck!
re:the kindle, my mum had one for xmas and i havnt even had a look at it..im not a techie really so doesnt bother me much. i rather have my books...i cant imagine having D karnazes on kindle..miss llb has enough xmas money to buy one but im nor sure itd be worth it. she loves her nintendo DS and WII so i think she would be better buying learning games for that at the mo
i am watching top gear at the moment-sooo funny!!!
yes i am so pleased for miss llb , will find out more when they go back to dance classes next week. extra rehearsals every saturday right up to april..was trying to find something on webabt it .think i found it its called 'stars in our eyes'..looks like it could be at sadlers wells...
franny, i will be a good girl and do 15 , is that ok? and then 10 the following sat/sun?
well, I will have a little run tomorrow, was planning a rest day Saturday anyway (well, spinning and gym), so I'll see they go and decide about Sunday
oh, better be a good teacher and plan some lessons for tomorrow - glad it is nearly the weekend already!
Hi all! Back from my Turkish lesson and had some supper. It was the last lesson tonight but it might start up again in March. I hope so! I couldn't squeeze in a run but I had a very productive practice with daughter and violin teacher for next week's violin and piano exams. I'll try to run tomorrow.
AF - I was watching Brokeback mountain - one of my favourite films, it's beautiful and sad and Heath Ledger is in it. If you don't know, it's about a love affair between 2 cowboys and most straight men have difficulty watching it
RR - Good news about the diagnosis and that your doctor knows what he is talking about but pretty lousy you are out of action for a little while. Keep positive, it sounds like it will mend just fine.
Franny and Loula - well done on your runs girls! And LLB - exciting news about Miss LLB!
By'Eck - get well soon! Gosh there is a lot of sickness going around. I am 42 (but I was only 41 in the photos!) How old are you?
Mathschick - Enjoy cake day! Gosh that's a good idea!
Phantom - well done on your gym session!
Limper - have a good rest!
Ecky - Glad your family are feeling a bit better.
