The Cake Runners Athletics Club :-)
Wow, you guys have been busy.
Luckily we have had milder weather so running has been easier. I did 3 miles yesterday and walked into town which was another 5. I am walking again today as Middle Ecky wants to go to get some felt so she can make her friends something for Christmas. I am hoping to get out to run later today.
frosty this morning but went out for a little run/walk. Covered 4 miles altogether, felt tough, don't know if that is lack of fitness of whether I am just run down. Will be walking with the boys later as they have 'scout post' to deliver
Well done getting out ther Mathschick. I must admit I am finding it hard to be motivated at this time of year. I imagine its such a busy time for you at school so no wonder you are feeling a bit run down.
Ooooh I forgot there were Christmas smileys
I am determined to do more this week. Should be a more relaxed week at school. And I need to be more relaxed and less stressed about big boy. Hard to do, but I must! He is still on a high after the concert on Friday, so think I need to go with those positive vibes
Swimming training for daughter this morning but I had the boys with me so I couldn't run. Hubby picking olives again all day.
Well done on your run MC and on your run yesterday Ecky.
Now for some lentil soup.... yummy!
Jude - have the boys got bikes? could you go to a park and run with them biking alongside you?
mm, lentil soup sounds nice
annoyed because a friend sent a card a while ago (like months ago) with a change of address/phone number etc and I can't find it! Haven't got an email address for her either.
by eck - how lovely, hope you enjoy their visit
OH now has the norovirus
Sorry all ... my honey's computer has died. Believe me ... she's in mourning. I've tried all my whiz-bang tricks and it isn't responding. Sounds like a hard-drive issue, so the plan is to take it in tomorrow and see if the computer miracle man can lay hands on it and bring it back to life. Not sure when she'll be in touch, but thought you should know she's here and well ... just 'voice-less' at the moment. (Yes, she can use mine if she wishes!)
Oh MC, you are having it tough at the moment.
Byeck - have a lovely time with your brother and girlfriend.
Ecky - well done on your runs.
My laptop has broken Very, very terrible and I'm not coping be very well. Especially as I have to use the girls slow desktop with horrible keyboard!
This eve was our carol service which I was organising and leading t5his year. So was a bit anxious but it went brilliantly. All the readers, singers, soloist (inc hubby and big girl) sunday school, youth, puppets, poems, musicians were fantastic. We had loads of the local council there and raised a nice sum for the Mayors Charity as we do each Christmas. And apart from the girls tea-party on Wednesday that is all my Christmas workshops/services/activities complete. The ones I was responsible for anyway. Perhaps now life will calm down a little.
Looking forward to bike and run tomorrow.
Hahaha ... she was downstairs on the girls computer typing that while I was upstairs.
Have a lovely time with your brother and his girlfriend By'eck!
MC - Hope it's over soon.
Chili - Glad the carol service went well.
We decorated our outside tree yesterday. One week earlier than planned but the kids were keen to do it. Your decorations look lovely Chili - thanks again! We made a garland of Christmas stockings too - looks nice!
Off to work now........BOO!
Awwwww Mathschick, I hope you feel better soon. I am trying not to breathe at School as there is a lot of it going around.
Morning Jude, I bet your tree looks lovely.
Morning Mr Chill, I hope you get your laptop sorted soon. Hi chilli, sounds like a lovely Carol service. We had ours last week and little Ecky sang up on the Alter with a few others. Do you get to have a bit of a rest now.
By Eck, have a lovely time.
Well yesterday I managed another 3 miler up lots if hills and kept my pace at 10 min miles which I have not done for ages. I am dropping weight again which is good. We also got creative with me and my Girls making little Cushions with Christmas pictures on them. Middle Ecky and I did the sewing while Big Girl did the designs. Middle Ecky has made them for her friends at school. I hope they like them as she spent hours doing them.
chili - try taking the battery out then putting it back in - that sometimes works, no idea why
OH kept me awake all night with his groaning and whimpering - I should have just gone to sleep on the sofa. So tired but trying not to be stressed!
Fingers crossed big boy and I don't don't get it - or my parents, they are getting on a bit now and it would be worse for them
I need to read properly. Mathschick I hope OH gets better soon. I hope you manage to avoid it too.
Managed 7 miles yesterday morning @ 8.30 - not bad after getting into bed at 1.00am after my office christmas party.
Have a good day everyone.
100 pushups post Week 4 exhaustion test: (after being stuck on Week 4 for about three weeks. )
50 pushups! I'm well chuffed with that.
25 pullups post Week 3 exhaustion test:
Possible run later.
Hope everyone's doing OK.
Wow RR! Sounds brill. Well done!
Ecky - well done on your hilly run.
MC - hope you get a good night's sleep tonight and that you don't catch it.
Hi everybody else!!
I'm home early from school because I had a doctor's appointment. Finally I've given in and gonna try some happy pills. Hope they work for everybody's sake... Doctor also said lack of vitamin B can make you feel depressed and as a vegetarian I may not be getting enough. So she gave me some of those too.
RR well done
I haven't really managed to stick to the push ups or pull ups, and still can't do a proper one but can feel myself getting slightly stronger
oh Jude, hope the pills work, could be stress, you have a lot on and your work seems to take a lot of time. I have been to the dr about my scalp and he has given me medicated shampoo, I have been losing hair too, and he said that is probably stress
so I plan to get an early night after washing my hair and set my alarm for a silly time to get up and go for a run/walk. I think getting back into my olod routine will help me. Maybe the whole knee problem compounded with work and all the troubles with big boy have conspired against me
well, OH still not feeling well. Better go and make some food for the kids
kitchen is kind of covered in a film of dust though as they have done the kitchen window today. That was the last one though, they just need to do some finishing touches outside
