Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
Sorry to hear about your Mom Bearsted
Mandie - I stopped wearing the top initially because the lycra was making me look like a very oddly shaped sausage but with a t-shirt over the top I don't feel so odd. They are good products though!
Hope you feel better soon CC2!
Where are you away to Fiona?
Hi mr sj
I wonder if Stringy got the parcel I sent him yet.....
Have a good time then Fiona
How's your Mom doing Bearsted?
Bearsted - I hope your mum is doing better.
CC2 - look after that cold and don't be tempted to get out for a few miles too soon and set yourself back.
Really busy at the moment in work and home, but getting out more for my runs now which is finally starting to help my fitness. I did 4 miles with the club last night without the need for any walking and my knee didn't give me as much trouble as it has of late. Off to the doctors tomorow to try and get it looked at properly though.
lfc - sounds bit better news on your knee here's hoping
On my way up to Stockton today will go and see my mam this afternoon and try and speak to doctors as it seems they are not surre what is fully wrong yet and what the growth is that is causing the obstruction.
Thanks for all the concern it is much appreciated. I may be getting a bit paranoid but my father died 18 years ago from cancer and that was only 2 months after going into hospital and being diagnosed. Stupid thing about that was he was a hospital chaplain and had known within himself that he had a problem with his prostate but told no one and waited until he retired to go and get it seen to by which time it had spread.
How is your Mom Bearsted?
BP - I hope your mam's operation goes well. Parents are such a worry.
Not been on the thread for a while as I've fallen a bit out of love with running at the moment and the marathon training has kind of fallen apart.
I'm just sick of running in freezing cold conditions all the time, it just seems like never-ending snow and wind. Coupled with the fact that I have pain behind my left knee most of the time, and I've just got some Nimbus 14s which I don't like ... they don't seem to have any bounce to them and are making running even more of a chore than it is already given the injury and cold conditions.
However, I'm just back from Elswick's Good Friday Road Relays, which I quite enjoyed. Plus I got a 'Come on Jarrow' from Steve Cram as I ran past.
Bearsted - log everything that's discussed as if you need to make a complaint then you have all the evidence ready to hand, rather than having to think about what you were told and when.
I'm getting messed around so much that I log things and take a witness with me to my appointments, plus my main doctor has now insisted that ALL correspondence is copied to me because I am not getting letters either
Generally, I think the NHS is fantastic, but there are areas where the left and right hand need to know what each other is doing.
Shielsy - sorry to hear you aren't enjoying your running at the moment. Wouldn't it be great though if you had a fantastic day at the marathon after all the hard hours you have logged. I'll bet MtM will be smiling down on you on the day
Shielsy- hope that Steve's support (isn't he Stringy's friend?) will have re-invigorated your mojo. Its not long to go now and we are tapering after this weekend- the best part of marathon training . Just think what you achieved already in the last months training.
Bearstead- hope things progress well with your mum.
OS - I have to say, I think that after some of the training conditions we have all had to endure, the race itself will be much more bearable
Vixx- I quite agree. Assuming that the conditions DO improve in the next 3 weeks
If there's no snow on the ground it's an improvement!
