The Cake Runners Athletics Club :-)
Thanks guys. I also had a couple of 'false starts' with the pushups programme, as I did with the C25k, but this time I was very strict with myself.
Well done RR! That is very impressive.
Wow! AF! Lol!
Well done to Ecky too.
Jude, I bet the tree looks lovely. I thought of you as we put ours up. Sending hugs and hoping you feel tiptop pretty soon.
MC - commiserations on sick hubby, troublesome son, hair falling out and the dust! Sending big hugs your way too.
I amd feeling less anxious now the big christmas events I was responsible for are over. Hopefully I may even manage to unwind and relax.... but that is not in my nature so unlikely.
But I have discovered something wonderful this week. I have never really been a fan of high heeled shoes and the pregnancy and birth of the twins 9 yrs ago did unmentionable things to my pelvis which meant 30 mins of heels left me in a lot of pain. But since Feb I've been doing pilates once a week. On Wed eve we had our Chuch Christmas dinner and I wore a pair of heeled dress shoes for the evening. We were sitting for most of the time, but my back didn't hurt at all. So last night as I was hosting the Carol Service I wore my heeled court shoes I haven't worn since my last job interview 5 yrs ago. I was on my feet for the better part of 4 1/2 hrs with no pain at all
After the weather of the tpast 2 weeks today was positively balmy so I did a bike ride this morning and 5 mile run this evening. I even did a couple of intervals
Laptop is at the doctors awaiting diagnosis
Happy running everyone!
Can't believe it's soon time for 'just a little bit further 2013'... seems like just yesterday we were embarking on this one....they grow up so fast...sob....
So called 'happy' pill gave me 2 hours sleep.....Feeling very sorry for myself and hoping I can get through a day at work. Am wondering if the doctor should have said 'one to be taken in the morning'.
MC - thinking of you too! Hope the shampoo works. Do the windows look nice?
Hi to everybody else! xxx
Sorry not been on for a while but been v busy/manic at work etc...last day at work for me today until after Christmas...yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy..woke up yesterday with a very red bloodshot R eye (just in the corner) It looks weird..looks a bit better today.
Jude..aw so sorry you are feeling down and didn't get much sleep.(((((hugs)))) Bet your tree looks amazing. well done on getting your running in.
MC...hope your hair stops falling out....and hope your run goes well this morning...I cope better with routine too and once you are out of it..it kinda messes things up.

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.
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!
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
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.
