Aw chili, your laptop sick too? Mine had the Mcafee removed as it was such a pain and then it refused to log onto Internet at all grrrrrr

Jude, ADs are morning dose usually but check with your GP . If you take it at night you will have the dip in the day rather than the right way around .

Jude, oh no, nothing worse than lack of sleep. Hope you get through the day ok

by eck - what happened to your toenail? Hope your toe isn't sore without it

It got damaged at abo. I knew as soon as I finished that it would go. It's mate on the other foot is also going to come off in the next few days.
MC, well done for getting out on your run. You must feel good
Jude, we are all here to support you. Huge hugs and Christmas cheer!
Moo is still not sleeping and his appetite is a bit dodgy. We're trying to decide if he needs to see a Dr. Mr by eck and I have set a line to review it

Loula, I hope you get your lappytop sorted soon.

Morning Jude, I hope your Happy Pills work for you.((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))

Hi Franny, I hope you enjoy your run.

Ouchie By Eck, sounds sore. How is our Moo today?

Morning Mathschick, how is OH today?

Just been out for a 3 miler. I am trying to build back up to the start of my training on the 31st Dec.

Oooooh so proud too of Middle Ecky. She has been chosen to be a Sports Captain for her house. My Ikkle shy baby is gaining confidence.

18/12/2012 at 11:09

ecky - that is great news about your girl

I left OH in bed this morning but he says he is feeling loads better, thank goodness

starting to feel Christmassy here now, no real teaching to be done till January, just fun lessons and tests - shame about the marking created by the tests!

18/12/2012 at 12:43


Jude-Hope you feel better soon.We are all here for you .Take care.

byeck-I lost a toenail last night. It has been black for months and then fell off.Mrs AF wasn't impressed when I showed it to her!!

Ecky-Well done on your 2 miler.Well doen to little ecky. 

Franny & LLB - good to here from you. I was wondering about you two as it has been so quite on here. I though may be you had got togeher somewhere and caused mayhem!!!!

MC-Enjoy your rest. You deserve a break.

RR-Well doine on all of your exercise.It must be paying dividends.

Hi Chilli ,Ultra etc

Went out for a 13.7 mile run 1st thing this morning. Now I havea  question- although I felt fine throughout the run I ran on an empty stomach as whent out at 7.30am. What do people do with nutrition before long runs 1st thing in the morning? I didn't bother with a drink as well!!! In the New Year I want to increase my long runs so that I feel confident for my Marathon in April. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi AF - I've definitely got more definition on my chest, and even on my back - somewhere I've never had any definition before - at least nothing I've noticed.

Hi! Back from school and I have a piano lesson this evening. Just hope I can keep my eyes open.  Have 2 presentations tomorrow.  Students are excited and bored with practising the same things for ages.

I know I must appear very silly but my doctor told me to take a tablet in the evening.  (Hubby was there too.)  Pharmacist wrote on the box 'morning' but we thought we should trust the doctor. Anyway, should get a good sleep tonight.  I'll try again with the tablets after my presentation. (Taking them in the morning.)

I'm up to date with all your posts and I'll try to come back later.....

Bye for now. xxxx

AF - I don't nowmally have anything before my morning runs but do take water with me. For longer morning runs I have a banana before going out and take gels/snacks with me. You need to experiement to find out what works for you

18/12/2012 at 17:53
Boss I have indeed been causing chaos
18/12/2012 at 19:26

AF - I shouldn't really comment as I don't think I've cracked the fuelling business. I often feel sicky and faint towards the end of a really long run.

Ecky - well done on your 3 miles and congrats for daughter's selection!

MC - Enjoy the Christmas countdown at school.  I really miss that here.

By'eck - sorry to hear Moo's still not sleeping...

Piano lesson went well.

18/12/2012 at 20:24

My laptop is fixed!!!!!!!  The hard drive completly died/fried/stopped working and the guy couldn't get anything from it. I do a back up once a month so I haven't lost everything, but I was actually in the middle of my back up when it died! Fortunately I have most recent essay and study journal on an e-mail cos it had just been marked. And the Christmas events I was responsible for are over so it doesn't matter that those are lost. And I have a paper copy of most of my curriculum's for the new term, so I'm hoping there won't be too much work to repeat.

Byeck - your toe!  I lost one a couple of years ago and found it fascinating lol!

Good running AF. I have to admit I rarely run more than 6 miles first thing in the morning cos most of my LSR aare done in the afternoon/eve. So I don't have much advice to give re food. Although I have been known to grab an Sausage Egg McMuffin as I passed McD!.

Jude - good to hear the piano lesson went well and I hope you sleep better tonight.

Ecky - great news on your daughter's selection.

Franny - have a great Christmas Hols!

19/12/2012 at 08:03


chili - good that you got your laptop fixed. I think I need to back mine up as it has started playing up from time to time

Jude - hope you got a good night's sleep

early morning turbo session for me - was a tough session and I was so sweaty, didn't think the rest of the family woud be pleased if I had opened up the patio doors though!

have a great day everyone

19/12/2012 at 09:02


Thanks too. Middle Eckys Dodge Ball team came second yesterday in the inter-house comp so she was very pleased.

Morning Mathschick. Those Turbo sessions sound tough.

Yeeeeey Chilli, you got your lappytop back.

No running for me today,went out for a meal last night with a support group which was lovely and then Costa this afternoon with my Bessie. Slimming world weigh in and party tonight which is guna be fun.

Well are we all ready for Christmas? I had confirmation last night that I can help out at our Church on Christmas Day for the Dinner they are putting on for the Homeless and those who are alone. I am so looking forward to it although it means Hubby will have to do our dinner and the kids are not impressed.


19/12/2012 at 09:05

ecky - that is a lovely thing to do on xmas day. I am sure your hubby can manage and the kids will be busy playing with toys/arguing anyway

19/12/2012 at 09:22


Ecky-I echo MC what a lovely thing to do. 

MC-Well done on the turbo session.

Flying visit no running for me today after my long run yesterday.

Have a good day folks.

Ecky...Aw that is a wonderfull thing to do..the gift of ones own time is so so precious..you are an ANGEL.

AF...well doen on your long run yesterday...I do my long runs earlyish and always have brekky..good old porridge usually before going out and take some gels and water withe me..depends on how far..don't usua;;y need gels if its less than 14 miles BUT i always fuel up with brekky before these runs and have my chocolate milk when I get back. But everyone is different..you will find your own ideal by trial and error.

MC..turbo sessions sound hard...had to laugh as I could picture you opening the patio doors and everyone else shouting Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum what are you doing..its freezing in here...lol...

My eye is still all red but getting better. I did 7 miles yesterday in an hour so feel i am getting my mojo back...no pain at all...went to gym for crosstraining this morning then swim and jaccuzzi.
