i get up and chases my black labrador round the field (he doesnt run properly with me, he just plays with me if there's no other dogs, which there usually isnt on a sunday morning), eat a large breakfast (usually spaghetti or noodles or something)then go to the animal rescue shelter and walk a few of the dogs there.

the afternoon is reserved for a long run in the pinewoods /sand-dunes, i live on the coast in merseyside which is great for running! if i'm racing, then i'll be walking the dogs in the afternoon instead!

Wow Ironwolf, can I come and stay...

(Specially as darkthings are afoot on the darkside and I'm feeling very homeless)

Tomorrow am running a 1/2 with Bear and Foxy in a hurricane/deluge at Stroud.

Running, running, running
how good that word sounds
[slinks back to the place where that word can not be mentioned and where no birds sing...]

Our Sunday usually starts with breakfast in bed, then snuggle down for another hour or so under the duvet. When we finally emerge (about halfway through Steve Wright sunday love songs), he goes out on the bike for a couple of hours and i go for a long run. We usually meeet up in the shower, then go for a wander and play hunt the sunday newspaper which may be from any of the local garages. After that we'll either walk or drive to a park/lake/stately home/cinema to have a wander/watch a film/find a cafe, then home for dinner and a snuggle on the sofa with a large pot of tea, packet of biscuits and good books. Bed when the heating clicks off!!

This Sunday I shall be mostly Running a light recovery run, swimming with Barklettes and then drinking to excess.
Followed by snoozing and similar stuff.

I try to keep Sunday completely for "me" stuff - rather than doing chores like shopping and all that.

Generally go down the gym or for a run in the morning, particularly approaching the marathon. After a twenty miler before lunch I wasn't fit for much else for the rest of the day - just a stretch, a sleep, and maybe a visit to the sauna at the gym and another stretch in the evening.

Worse thing - if I still have some marking or preparation to do for Monday - ugh!

Sunday morning am cycling then going to the gym. Once the necessary exercise is over its home for a huge Sunday lunch with lots of red wine. I deserve it as I will have exercised.

In the afternoon it is walking the dogs and allegedly studying. The lunch tends to kill of any ideas of studying and even if I do study the red wine ensures that I do not remember any of it.

Early bed in the evening as I have to get up at 6am on Monday morning.

Sundays for me are usually church, church, church, but I've now got a week off, and got the new puppy yesterday, so today is going to be about poo, wee, poo, wee. Oh joy!

get up about 8.30, make a cuppa tea, go back to bed, bonk the Mrs, get up again, buy a paper at the local Alldays, go back to bed, listen to the Archers omnibus, get up again, go for a long run, lunch, watch Sky Sports footy and telly for rest of day, bed again.

Hangover - sleep - read the paper - go on long run / race.

(in a variety of different orders)

Lie in bed and contemplate a long run - recently haven't managed to get out on one. Get up, shower, let the dog out, get the little one her breakfast, read the papers cover to cover,warn older two that the cafe is closing, help 10 year old with a Maths Common Entrance paper and a bit of maths coaching if she'll listen, hubby cooks a roast, open wine while waiting for Aga to do its stuff, eat lunch, wash up, go for a walk or lounge in front of TV, get kids to get their gym bags together, put their uniform out for tomorrow, warn au pair about the shape of our working week, get kids tea, bath them, check all three for nits/lice, put litte one to bed, open another bottle of wine, eat a salad, veg in front of the TV and wonder where Sunday went...

Daisy - similar to mine.
(Well apart from the au pair bit, oh and the hubby bit obviously plus I haven't got a 10 year old!).
Did a pumpkin for halloween today though - that was a bit different. Didn't realise how sticky they were inside...

PS Haven't got a dog either!

OK done the running bit, now doing the drinking bit in honor of our Dublining chums, as promised.

Spent all this Sunday sorting my computer out. Usually use the one at work but as we're off for half term I thought I'd better get home one sorted out. Now that I've found the forums would feel quite lost without it/them for a whole week. Now that I've done it though I think I'll go back to the sofa and finish reading Sunday Papers. No running today due to uninviting weather -did do nice 4 miles yesterday though so not being too lazy.

Sunday mornings at this time of the year always involve standing on the touchline of a rugby pitch. Both the youngs play and I am to be found in support. Afternoons are generally spent chasing youngs for their homework, preparing for Monday. Evenings are 'my time' I either run outdoors or on the treadmill at the gym (more likely in this weather).

I work a 10 day shift cycle so Sundays aren't always Sundays if you see what I mean. Today I was on morning shift 6am-1pm then off to Totton for a 10k. Now its time to veg infront of the telly, open some wine and eat lots! Feeling suitably smug having done my bit of exercise!
27/10/2002 at 19:40
Its all bloody swimming for me.
27/10/2002 at 19:47
I either go for my weekly long run, or if I'm tired after a night on the beer I take the dog for a long walk.

For the first time in ages my kids are spending half term at their Nans....

So, long lie in, no run (wind very gusty and many trees reported down), sunday lunch and vino at local pub, sorting xmas pressies and even wrapping some (don't think I have done that in October since being a teenager), watched King of Sports (some great ideas ther for our club midsummer madness night next year), ate soup, played on net.

Complete opposite of my normal long run, take nippers swimming Sunday but hey, how great it is to have a real rest day once in a while!
