I lay awake in bed this morning waiting for the alarm to go off, I'd forgotten to switch it on . I've missed my spin class, but I suppose it won't do any harm. I had a hard long run yesterday. For some reason, it just wasn't happening for me, so much so that I was seriously debating abandoning running altogether at some stage .

It was very quiet in here yesterday evening!

A rest sounds just what the doctor ordered.

Monday. No X-box. Bleurgh.

04/02/2013 at 07:22


No XB, not untill that homework is done

Dragon, rest it was a long run! Well done

*brings Dragon tea in bed*

we cant have you thinking of ditching running altogether!

Mmmm, fish crumble  -scruummy. Good to  know you had a lovely time,  Sluggy and not too long to wait for more reasons to celebrate together

Umm, bad Spence boy - sounds like my two all over. No Xbox is the end of the world - only just short of Sharia law and chopping their hands off

Boo to ridiculously long days, Podds but hoorah to yesterdays whirlwind of bikes, running and hounds and yummy biskwits

Sounds like a good call on delaying the pld, Pippi - are you training for anything?

XB, I love the thinking on making a tough 6 the last 6 of the marafun - clever - when are you marafunning ?

Yes, Herr Klaggers was a sweet ickle thing before M....eldy got her hands on him


Date went well - well, I wittered a fair bit and date isn't conventionally attractive but such a lovely person - A seriously studying Buddhist unlike me but we have a similar take on life and, get this, she's an Osteopath and sports massage therapist - might come in handy one day!  Anyway, she's not local and we both have our own lives but initial plan suggests meeting up in a couple of weeks

WAIST well my lovelies

Nuff said

Working at home and not working the afternoon =

Sounds like a cheery date Yums!

Don't give up plodding Dragon! You ran 16 miles, you know you love it really!

Sun's shining here

Morning all

Dragon lady take a rest - as we get older (sadly!) we really have to learn how to train smart and not just SMART - quality over quantity; plenty of rest days (after all muscle adaptation takes place when resting not training) and listening to our bodies..........

...........but then you know all that and were just having a glum moment (quite understandable when running ) - you are our inspiration and you won't give in to a moment of weakness

Sounds like a nice run Cheesy and good for Roni getting longest distance to date under the belt

Date sounds about as good as it gets Yums and there's no need to rush anything after all...............slowly slowly catchee monkee or something like that!!

Well it's Monday and we're all back at work........what joy!!

Wonder if DL is on a train?

Morning each,

A day of faffing and fettling for me.  I have some hedging and tree work to do - I'll get on with that tomorrow.

It's still snowing in Austria Just over two weeks to wait

Still wine free - we had a lovely lunch yesterday but I opted to drive so was on the water.

i just need to stop eating and lose 10k more.  

Lovely and sunny here too so I guess a bike ride would be a good thing.


04/02/2013 at 09:47

Quick good morning. 

Sue, like XB says, you prolly needed that rest, espeecially with such a hard run yesterday. 

Spence, being a mother is a job for sadists really! But one day they will thank you for it,,,,,apparently... 

Wot Yums said about everyone else!

And Yums, I must say that date sounds like good news: an interesting person who already has a life, and isn't grabbing you to keep afloat! Sounds promising  And as you said, a sports massage therapist is always a good person to know! 

I've mainly been lurking over the weekend. It's birthday time: C2 was on Saturday, C3 is today, but parties will be postponed til everyone is home. I've actually been sat here in running clothes for an hour, but C1 in Melbourne wants to have a msg conversation and I wanted to hear what the doctor and back specialist said (neither really knows why her back hurts so much, but say it's good she has a hozzie appointment on Wed!). She's lonely and bored, I think, so if she wants to chat, I'm deffo here to chat to! Still may get out for a short troddle, we'll see..



04/02/2013 at 09:55

Dang, meant to post that an hour ago! 

Daffs, glad the sun is shining again for you---literally and metaphorically  xxx

Podds, you keep going like that, you're going to rival Noggs as our resident philosopher  But how very right you are. As you said, the Dragon knows it all, but sometimes it's relaxing to hear it from someone else. Hope you have fewer, um, interesting events at work this week than last!!! 

Nogs, two more weeks and back to snow?? What a great way to pass the winter!  Glad that the difficult family members seem to have crawled back into their holes for now. You and HL must know that you are, very seriously, making all the difference to your GD. 

What is this sun you all speak of? It's grey, raining and with a bitter wind here. BUT I thought of XB and his epic run at the weekend and shoved myself out the door. Only 4.5 km and very slow, but after 3 weeks of being mainly sat (inside with snow outside, in the car etc) it was good to be out. Now gotta see if I can find anything not to expensive but cheerful that I can get delivered locally to C1...

Morning All 

Was late to work this morning, slept badly, the slept well through the alarms  Oh well, at least I can make it up later, may skip my run tonight and try and catch up on sleeps 

XB, I thinks you earned and extra rest day for your 16 miler!

I suppose I better get on and look busy before anyone else notices ....

Awww, Cheesie, you must just be a bit short on sleep. Early to bed tonight )

And did we all see....the body under the carpark IS Richard III!!!! Very exciting!!!!! Xxx
04/02/2013 at 12:28

morning Oops afternoon all, that's me back so will have a quick read back but had a great weekend but a bit Knackered now anyway if you are interested you could have a look at this

back later

04/02/2013 at 13:26

 Westie: Love it! now why on earth would people want to run on roads when there are places like that to be had! Sort of thing that makes me want to move 

That would make a nice XCountry bike route too.

Thanks for posting it 

04/02/2013 at 14:26


(((C1))),I am sorry that she is in a lot of pain , I do hope they are able to make her comfortable toot sweet. I missed the news about Richard, how very exciting!

Yummy, your date sounds good. Two people spending time together because they want to, rather than because they can't tolerate their own company - that is a great start.

Sterkte Spence, it does get better, but no-one is promising that it will happen soon

(((Sue))) look after yourself.

Daffy, it is nice to hear you sound more like your usual cheery self .

Westie, you really are an inspiration - although the scenery certainly helps too.

There is a definite Monday feel to the lounge today, thank dog there is only one Monday each week!

I have aquagymmed and done a sluggie with MS (have switched days cos my bff is busy today). The sky is blue and spring is on the way .


WAISt well xxx

04/02/2013 at 14:30

Well dated Yums, you must have kept the real bonkers you under wraps

I've saved that to read later Westie

I have intervalled 4x800m blimey it felt tough, legs a bit stiff after Sats 10 & Fri's 4! but each half mile was under 10mm so I guess I should be pleased !

The deputy head told team 2 she is leaving in july, rest of school will know tomorrow big changes afoot!

04/02/2013 at 14:40

Had a quick read back and promptly forgot most but lots of (((((((((((((((C1)))))))))) and nice for you to have a pleasant time out Yumms. Have to dash out again as Eldest son is over for more hospital treatment and his mums with him and are now heading over this way so will be picking up off the bus. so will be out till morning again.

no rest for the wicked.
