The Cake Runners Athletics Club :-)
Mine needs to start again as I feel rubbish.
We have been invited out for a meal tomorrow night too.I am so fed up of rich fatty foods. I am craving Salad and I dont even like it that much.
Just been trying to get my team together for the Great Midlands Fun Run again this year. I love this one as we do it as a family. I just hope we get a really big team this time.
Oh my! four pages of posts already! We are well named the CRAC Team.
Welcome Limper, Mathchick, Deva and Liz. Great to have you join us.
Hi SLegs - so pleased you're back with us.
Jude - Congratulations for reaching 16miles
And Loula, another 20! Are you doing a long run next week? When does your taper start? Am so excited for you.
AF - well done on your race. Good to hear you are alright. Was MrsAF there to cheer you on? I know that was important to you.
Well, this evening I finally did my first run for a week. Felt wonderful. Just my usual 5 hilly miles in the dark. But it's so mild out there. I didn't need hat or gloves and I saw a cherry tree in blossom
My goals for the year are to improve my time on the marathon in July. Complete my first Ultra in Aug. Run with the CRAC team in Abo marathon in Oct and hopefully do the Druids 2 day in Nov. It's a bit scary and I've a long way to go.
I weighed myself this morning expecting to have put on a few pounds but I haven't! Am still the same 9st7lbs. But I do have a layer of fat round the middle. Is it worth trying to shift it? If I'm happy with my weight as it is, will it make much of a difference to my running if I lose a bit? I've never been overweight so it's never been an issue or something I've ever paid any particular importance too. I'm just trying to decide if I can be bothered to try and get a nice flat set of abs
Sorry I didn't make it back on last night to say well done to you AF! Sounds like a really tough race with all those steps. So... very well done! And so glad you are OK.
I love salad almost as much as cake and could easily eat it everyday as long as it had plenty of olives and onions, yummy! (I'm a veggy but I eat fish - I think that makes me a pescetarian!)
Anyway, normal day for me... work and then teachers meeting until 7 (every Monday, aaarggh) home by 8. No run today. But only 3 weeks until the end of term and then 2 weeks holiday. Yipee! (I live in Turkey for those who are new. I teach English here but I was actually a Music teacher in England. The terms are all different here.)
Have a good day everybody!
good morning all...didnt get back on here as took miss llb up to bed and promptly fell asleep with her!! was sooo tired after the festivities and guests etc. had a little lie in this a.m before the deccies come down today. mr llbs uncle sent me a text saying it shouldnt take too long....erm, he was in shock whn i said it normally takes 3 hours to take them all down and then clean up afterwards....it must be done today though as tomorrow im back at work and day after schools are back!..aw i miss having little missllb off school.
jude thats a long day for you! hope its not a crazy one, just keep thinking of our hols coming upwill you get to run then?
chili, yep next week i start taper , forgot that until i loooked at the schedule yesterday was my last really long run! next weekend i will do 12 , then week after 8 ..although i have recovered well the day after each LS i know my bod must be tired what with everything else in the past few weeeks. hoping the weather is ok that week of Jan or else i will have to find another mara. after it i plan to have maybe a few wqeeks of lower mileage and then wind it back up again towards May and continue for the rest of year
on the healthy eating front im pretty much ok, in fact ive had to really push to take more food on runs. we dont have takeaways or Mcds or anything much in this house so we are not too norty....i will just have one aim though ...to get my abs looking like gastanks.....*throws down the gauntlet to gastank*
*grabs coat to do a little runette to imers for tea and cakies*
aw, limper, i was only thinking i am petrified of miss llb going off to secondary school and its not for a while yet...cant believe where my baby has gone!..she is currently still asleep in bed -practising for being a teen already i think!!....we have big decisions to make when next school comes around. well, i say decisions...i have already made them lol but its IF she gets into tht school as we are not in catchment....we are just 1.8miles outside it..arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh........
i too am about to commence taking down decs and i think out fridge is pretty much clear of norties now but we still have copius biccies and chocs..my ecxuse is that they are my fuel on LSR...HONEST GUV!
its a very bright n sunny day here, looks chilly though.
morning phantom, have you run today?
mornin'all. first prop run on my schedule early am it was ok but my calfs ache a bit now hey ho
Dont forget to get an appointment tomorrow AF Its probally nothing at all but ive got to tell you that if id fitted it would freak me out and id have to find out why.
Just come back form Sainsburys with lots of healthy stuff I too am a veggie but do absolutely love cake n choccies but being a tad on the short side if i got round and fell over i wouldnt be able to get up so i dont indulge my passion very much at all
Have fantastic morning my amazing friends and newbie friends too.
Sorry never got back on last night...but was sooo tired after our meal at the in laws...Lovely Homemade steak pie.....yummy it was....and some champers too....
Well done AF on your race yesterday and gald you were alright.Hope you get that Doctors appointment.
Loula.......Took me ages to get our decorations down this morning....I am back at work tomorrow so really had to be done today...I will be glad to get back to a normal routine once again...

hi franny yep i have only just finished taking down the decs, moving furniture back to where it was, dusting, hoovering, then i start dusting one thnng and it just turns into a whole room blitz...the hall, stairs, kitchen, living rm, conservatory, ALL had deccies or lights somewhere!...have had todo a spiderman event climbing around the window sills of the conservatory to get down the tiny lights i fixed up above the blinds..problem is the conservatory is quite high...and im quite small, so it involves climbing on the dining rm table too.......which is why i always do these things whn mr llb NOT around........all hoovered now and clean again..phew...i was getting a bit tetchy with the clutter of cards....i think i have mild OCD....I LIKE TIDYNESS AND ORDER
phantom, well done on a run, was it a bit fresh out there today?...i think i too would be a very round lickle teletubby if i ate too much ..we would be like weebles
am going to do my nails all pwetty tonight...have had nice dark red and purple for last 2/3 weeks but may do some nail art tonight now all my mega cleaning done.
apart fom me and by'eck is anyone joining KKs monthly mileage challenge thread? its really a good way of keeping everyone at it and running throught the rubbish weather...i was in the lead yesterday and still lead female today...yay!!! i think my position may be shortlived though lol...
AF, have you any pics from yesterday?
Loula..glad you got all the cleaning and decs down...I like tidiness and order to I mut admit....
AF....Well done on your result..fantastic indeed........
Well we didn't go a family walk...no one wanted to and hubby wanted to go and watch football...he asked me if i wanted to go...erm No..so i went and did a 7.57 mile run...a different route through woodland and then back via the road...very nice but very muddy and slippy in parts.....very cold and strong wind to but glad i went out ..it wasn't the fastest run but was out for 1.18 mins so a good base bulid up for my mara training which starts in earnest the day after Loulas marathon...woo hoo....
Loula maybe i will join the challenge......
