A warm place where everyone knows your name
Did 7.76 mile treadmill run, mainly run with the odd minute walk here and there for mouthfull of drink.
I've been getting tired to Booey i have uped my milage though, guess it's something us elite athlete have to endure.
hope eveyone has a good weekend
Any lurkers looking at this thread feel free to add to it's content
Morning all out there in running land, hope you all had a good weekend, judging by FB, Jo did, maybe you could give us a report of the race you did.
Got a hectic week coming up, just taking one day at a time at the moment, running schedule might be a bit hadhok, have had to cancel taking my Mum Dad into Coventry for a bus to go on holiday this morning cause i have an issue that needs to be addressed with one of my kids schools, my son has a disability and we go out of him friday what has been going on, and it's not the first time that i have had to go up to the school, this time i want something done or it will then be the school govenours, or if so i will go to the newspapers.
on the brightside have a good day
Well I had a disaster on Friday I was so drained and only managed to run about half of the ressy run had to walk the rest then to top it all and to cut a long story short, my hubby had locked his van keys and my car keys in the van, everything locked in including phones, keys, money, clothes etc The sailing club clubhouse (hubby windsurfs here) let us use their computer to google who the beakdown cover was with (hubby knew he had key cover) we waited 2 more hours for them only to be told sorry these T5 Transporters are impossible to get into and its cheaper to smash a window at home rather than the vehicle. So, decent fellow windsurfer ferried us about to get to home, smash a window collect spare van key back to sailing club to get into vehicles.....hey presto we got home at 8ish to clear mess up and board window.
Hence all the excitement I rested Saturday and boy did I need it, and did a short 3.5miles yesterday
Steve - sorry to hear about the school problems etc hope you get it all sorted
Jo - how did fab four go?
Sounds as though you had an interesting weekend Booey.
Ive been upto the school to see my lad's head teacher, think the two ladies on reception thought i was being a bit bulshie, should i say, again have been gtold that things will be looked into, but not hoping for anything to be sorted much, but amongst things, when you hear a young child on the playground tell my son that his mum, dad and sister are going to get it tonight, you wonder what sort of perants are bringing this child up. as soon as things are sorted with his statement i will be moving him on. Just get tired with it all, i shouldnt be falling to sleep at 11am.
hoping to get out tomorrow morning for a run a long steady one to.
If any lurkers out there look at this thread and want to join in then pull up a chair
I know the feeling Steve, I have had 2 days rest and feel loads better. Off out with another club 'Run England' tonight and see how I get on with them
'waves' to everyone
hiya, sorry not been on, i've been in the run liverpool thread ( cos of being in liverpool obviously ) and met so many runnersworld runners in liverpool it was just fab ( that thread is currently being updated quicker than i can keep up with lol )
anyway Fab Four run was brilliant, i have never laughed so much in all my life before a run, it was just a fun run not a serious thing ( no chips ) Run Liverpool who organised the run but a bus on for us all to climb aboard to take us to Sefton park where the run took place
then we all had to don Beatles wigs so funny, there about 50ish people doing the run but we all had our beatles wigs on, singing beatles songs, then we did the steady jog ( got lost in the park so ended up running 3miles in stead of four ) then they took us on a little tour to see penny lane and the barbers shop called sergent peppers
it really was a fab time, it rained, but we didnt care, made the liverpool echo
then watched the marathon on sunday my bf ( on here ulen madasaboxoffrogs ) did it in 4 hours 4mins which was a pb for him, had a fantastic weekend and really am looking forward to doing my bham half in just over a weeks time then the london marathon ( and not forgetting silverstone obviously inbetween )
Did a 6mile run today with some great hills ( in preparation for the bham half ) and am planning on doing a 3miler on friday ( we still havent managed a run together yet steve lol )
hope everyone else is ok
yes ok, have u used parent partnership services at all to help u with the st atementing process? we use them for Hannah and they were fantastic
sorry to hear u having such a hard time, is he in mainstream school at the moment steve?
Hannah - great to hear about your weekend the run sounded like loads of fun and well done on your OH's PB in the Marathon
Steve - sounds like you need a run to relieve that stress well done you on speaking up for your son re the women in Asda, how rude of her
Well I am more or less certain I am going to do the Buckingham 10K this Sunday
Went out with the 'Run England' local club last night, it was great really enjoyed it. Looks like I will be joining 2 clubs as I really like them both, should be out with the others tonight
right i am definatly doing a run of some sort tomorrow, treadmill or outside, diary is clear and should be over thebusy art of things by this aftrnoon.
thanks for the suport guys,it isnt easy especially when he is in meltdown, at least his school are doing somat now even though it took a kick up the bckside. parent partnership are going to be getting in touch jo and helping with his statement.
well our parent partnership is invaluable steve, couldnt have done alot of things without them
There is a Tamworth 10k this sunday ( i would run it but too close to Bham half )
I'm going for a small run tomorrow Steve but it will be first thing
going to tackle my hills again in preparation for the bham half
Did another club run last night with two different girls and got on great they were my pace which was excellent so all in all I feel happy now, I am going to join both clubs and run with whoever whenever I can. Hopefully one night a week with each
Doing the Buckingham 10K Sunday
I'm hoping that posting on this thread will find someone who knows about "The Run". I really enjoyed the run 11, and I had planned to do it again this year. Where has it gone? It seemed so successful and well organised. I'd even convinced my kids to get in on the fun run and possibly even get my whole Scout Group on the run to raise some money, and now the race has simply failed to appear. No-one's even mentioning it. I can't understand it.
They have already done it, they did it earlier this year, cant remember the exact date but march maybe, i was shocked as not knowing never realised, maybe they thought by having it earlier that they wouldnt have such a problem with the hot weather who knows but yeah guess they may try it again next earlier, i looked for it too, as it was such a good well organised event
Dont know where you live but Walsall are doing a Jubilee 10k run on Sept 22nd I think and they have a kids fun run as well I believe if thats any good
