Apologies for being so quiet! Cannot believe it is over 2 weeks since I came on here last. Usually even if I don't have time to log on and write I check in - but I haven't even had chance for that Not good. Lots going on with work and home life. And time is just flying by......................
Great tattoo Caz. Looks - or looked - painful though. How many people will look at that and wonder - 'why are you celebrating being 39.3? Weird!' - only us in the know understand
Good to see you speedy ones are still.........well, speeding. And chucking teddies. Lol.
Phil - say congrats to Jill for her job success and running success.
Less than two weeks now and I will be off to Phuket. Wanted to get a 15 in before I went but it may have to be less. Went over badly on my ankle last Tuesday flying down one of the mountains. Loud crack and for one awful minute thought I'd broken it. Due to speed (downhill) took me several painful steps to stop. Amazing how many things flashed through my mind. 'Oh S**t Snowdon! Oh S**t Phuket!' Thankfully - although still slightly swollen - managed a run Friday (5) and yesterday (6). Watched Julie do her Try a Tri. Definitely entering Tris next year. Was busting a gut to have a go yesterday. So my run ended up at the gym where Shaun met me with all the gear and into the pool to practice my swimming.
Still miffed I managed to book a two week holiday when the Olympics are on.
GE - terrific time. You are running really well. Looks like you will be propping up the bar first at Snowdon. Hmmmmm.....must remember to put my order in.
Fi, glad the injury isn't too bad..... unbelievably whilst you were writing about your ankle my daughter was sat in A&E having her broken ankle put in plaster having fallen down the stairs this morning.Fortunately my son, who'd been on a stag do in Spain, had got the day off and was able to organise the ambulance.... but not before she'd managed to put some make up on. Women eh?
.....you can examine my fridge anytime Phil. A bit of divine retribution hey? not being able to find it. Fancy giving me a sexy fridge magnet only to take it back. LOL.
GE - how weird.....hope your daughter makes a speedy recovery. Think I would've been inconsolable if mine had gone. Big hugs to her.
Well must dash. Got loads to do in work and out of work. Going on holiday is always an absolute nightmare. Haven't got out for a run yet this week. The weather is seriously depressing me - but apparently Summer is due to arrive next week...............when I'm going on holiday. Typical.
Take care all x
Speedy recovery vibes heading your daughters way GE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Speedy recovery vibes heading your daughters way GE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ see them there, they're speedy healing vibes they is.
Can somebody please put on their biggest boots and give me a right kick up the bottom...I have been serious skiving with a capital S... We were down in London at the weekend witnessing the Boss getting cut off in his prime but before then there was the small matter of sub 28 at Black Park parkrun... It was all going swimmingly until about half way when I got the worlds worst lady cramp, I said to Mr CS I was going to have to slow down a bit when what I really meant was I want to curl up in a ball & cry...not only was it in my tummy but it was radiating down the top of my legs... I managed 28:22 11secs slower than last time... Tuesdays run was cancelled...not due to the light drizzle in the air...honest...but due to cleaning for my brother & his kids visiting this weekend...so no running this weekend either. Must train....November 3rd isn't that far away.... *gulp*
What's this fridge magnet you're on about???
Dave/Darren I love how you two can just brush off sub 6min miles as a gentle run...oh to be able to run that fast...nah who am I kidding, it looks like bloody hard work.
Ooooh I can make up No.3 on the ankle hoo-hah....we went off over Shipley Glen the other week and not paying attention (as per usual) I went right over on my ankle...like you Fi I had that moment of "oh phuket" but after some tentative walking I figured there was no lasting damage and I could make it back without having to rely on a piggy back from Mr CS.
*whistles innocently* RW is having a dippy fit...it was nothing to do with me...
Brilliant Philby - that is just the sort of lame excuse I would have come up with as well. Still, it could have been worse - she could have been on the way to a modelling assignment for swimwear or even Ann Summers!
Marathon training getting hard now - went to track yesterday for 1x3200, 2x1200, 3x800 and 4x400 It was not pleasant!
400's were around 70 seconds after that lot - Could maybe squeeze a 66 out if I tried my bestest
OK own up who swapped my legs for a beginners??
My name is Caz and it's been 10 days since my last run.... We went out for a hilly little 5miler tonight and I thought my legs were going to fall off they felt that heavy. Really shouldn't leave it so long between training runs, especially if I want to get a PB in Las Vegas.
Teehee Phil, Jill is a right softy if you got away with just a death glare.
Dave which marathon are you lining up for??? I have Berlin in my head but I've just checked the date and it's the same as Nottingham HM and I'm sure you've said you'd have to sweet talk Jo to be able to do it as it clashes with erm.....something....
Yeah Caz, it clashes with erm.......... Macclesfield Half Marathon!
We're doing Amsterdam in October (21st) Really looking forward to it as Jo has family over in Holland so we're off over there for a few days and then to Amsterdam for the race.
WHAAAAAAAAAT - They have a red light district?
Yep, takes freakin ages to get anywhere....
Mental note to self..DO NOT search for red light images again without adjusting the search settings on the new laptop.
As Mr CS had been putting up with me for 10 years yesterday (not married for 10years just together for that long) we decided to go out for a meal & a couple of drinks...apparently chinese followed by cocktails is the way forward...managed to knock 28secs off my time at parkrun this morning...just another 20secs and I get sub-30 on the Bradford course....can get 28:11 on a flat one but I'd settle for 29:59 at Bradford with our 3 times up the "teeny tiny" hill.
