Happy 2013 everyone
Hope you're all well.... I smelt the talk of food and found my way onto here ... You're not allowed to talk of beef wellington though Pegg because I can't have it (although Mr T makes a mean vegan version of it and he's just as good at it as he is the beef version). I saw your piccy of it on FB... very good!
I'm a bit pleased with myself as I've started "sprouting". Haven't tasted my offerings yet as the first lot aren't ready until tomorrow but I now have a sprouting kit to do all beans and seeds. I have also found a vegan tuna recipe *drools* It's probably the only thing I really miss, so I'm giving that a bash tomorrow too.
So, (for those who don't know) I still have a pot on my ankle. It comes off Jan 15th (counting the days...) and Llanelli ultra (yet again) is out. Que sera...
UI. glad to hear you're back running again... you too Pegg, fab news! Have you picked a new target for 2013 yet S'berry?
I'm hoping to be "up and running" again ready for Connemara in April
Oops, sorry, forgot to say well done to you too MWW, hope things are well with the family?
Ta, Cabbey, did 10km yesterday - but very slowly! Still, it's a start.
I've managed three short runs and a swim session this week, so the year is off to a good start . Fingers crossed week 2 will be as good, although time might be an issue because I'm on a course for two days and we seem to have a couple of nights out - very unusual for us! If it all goes to plan, I should be playing squash tomorrow, running Tuesday lunchtime, yoga Tuesday night, climbing Wednesday night and climbing Saturday morning (if I'm not too hungover!). I'm hoping to get two more runs in somehow so that I can keep to 3 runs a week...might be tricky though!
Well done BI on getting back into it. Are you getting any pain, or does it feel ok?
We bought boxing gloves and pads yesterday Sberry. Your posts reminded me how much I used to enjoy that part of my old PT sessions
Only 9 days til it comes off Cabbey, and then you'll be flying again I'm sure
Pegg, I'm doing fine with the new hip, get a very occasional slight twinge around the scar site but what concerns me more is the other side either has developed sciatica or what seems more likely, piriformis syndrome. My right leg keeps going numb from my glute down through the hamstring and all the way down to my foot, sometimes the only way I can get comfortable is by sitting on a tennis ball! Going to see the doc about it. Maybe all I need is an injection and some massage therapy. I refuse to give in to something else just when I'm through with my hip recovery.
GP says it's a pinched nerve problem ad referred me to the orthopaedist.
Got an appointment for 09:30 Monday morning.
Here's an updated pic of our young dog Charly, now almost 8 months old and coming along nicely.
I hope you can get the nerve problem sorted quickly BI...especially when you've been counting down the days!
Well done Sberry - I keep seeing your blogs popping up, the progress you've made/are making is awesome!
I put off Tuesday's lunchtime run to Thursday night as I was snowed under with work. Thursday and Friday I was on a training course which put me in a really really bad mood - very unlike me - so Thursday night I just sulked, but last night I put the trainers on and went out for a mile. I ended up doing 2.5 so that psychology seems to work! I'm running again this morning with a friend - probably just another 3miles as I'm working up to bigger numbers slowly. I'm still getting shin splint type pains so I need to google what is causing them and how I stop them etc etc. although swapping my trainers seems to have lessened it. And then it'll have to be another mile on Sunday to fulfil my personal pledge - run 3x per week in January...minimum 1mile to count. It's certainly helping to push me out of the door!
Neither night out happened for us as friends were ill , so they've been postponed to February . I have managed to play squash, go climbing and go to my first yoga class since 1998! So although the mileage is building up slowly, I've certainly been more active than pre-Christmas. And two pear trees arrived in the post yesterday so at some point this weekend I'll be down the allotment digging holes for them to go in...
BI - hope you get that sorted quickly Lovely pic
SBerry - you are doing so well, I haven't done much swimming either...hopefully get back in the pool next week!
Pegg - well done on getting out there! Hope the shin pain eases.
I only managed a 4 mile run on the treadmill during the week as my neck was sore but I did some classes in the gym instead! I managed 12 very, very slow miles this morning (2 hour 24 minutes)...very windy and cold out there!
Ortho appt today, he said it sounds like a slipped disc and referred me to x-ray. The pictures showed deterioration of the padding between all my lower vertebrae. Doc says no actual slipped disc, it's natural wear and tear due to the aging process.
Got a series of appointments for physical therapy. But the good news is Doc Becker says to keep up my sports.
sorry have been on for a while, heating went in house, waited for a month for a new boiler, car was pranged before Christmas and wife had a wee health scare, but all ok now. Still running with works group and coaching kids hockey. No snow in Peterhead, just everywhere else !
We had lots of snow but now it's ice - very nasty. Thank all the gods we don't have to go to work tomorrow, it's an American holiday and as both of us work for American concerns we get both the German and the American ones.
BI - hope the healing process goes well and that is a huge plus getting to keep up the sports ! Hope you have enjoyed the time off !
Pegg - shin splints - not sure what the remedy is ? Hope the pain passes and you continue to build up your miles bud !
S/berry - keep going, doing well bud !
MWW- 4 miles on the treadmill ( dreadmill !), hats off to you, i find the treadie hard going, refer on the street. well done for the 12 miler !
Hi Granda Q !
I was out on Sun did 8.5 miles, some with work group and then on my ownsome. Nice and slow, but very cold, some patches of ice, but hardly any snow,Our base was winded off yesterday, strong winds and sea breaking over breakwaters, so our works group tried the track last night, some managed a couple of laps, but had to stop to bitter cold.Base still closed today .
Jantastic??! Whatever is that RP?
Glad to hear you're getting back to training properly again. Someone else mentioned too much high impact - I'm still doing the squash, yoga and swim lessons which don't give me shin splints at all, but I've not actually made it out for a run for two weeks now so I'll have to see how they are when I do go.
Good to 'see' you again WHH
I hope they're getting that back sorted out for you BI.
Have a good week everyone
Hubby swam 1000m in the annual triathlon gala yesterday - in 17:04! Won his age group and beat a lot of the younger ones too!
That's awesome BI
Yoga tomorrow night...
