Well, Michelle, after chocolate at 2am it can't get much worse!

Grotty chicken sarnies for lunch - resisted the nasty little individually-wrapped cake bars and had a handful of Hobnobs instead. They taste healthier even if they're not.

Swimming later as no more running before the GNR. Meanwhile...teaching, and trying to ignore pangs of hunger. Suspect a lot of toffees will go down the big red hill before I get to the pool. I think my body thinks I've given up running (despite 6.6 miles yesterday) and is trying to head for set point. Let it try. The GNR should see it off.

Back to work!

V-Rap - were they dark choc Hobnobs?? My favourites... haven't had them for ages.. want them NOW! Best of luck to you for Sunday for the GNR - you will probably need lots more chocolate before then for energy!! Mmm..do I need chocolate for the 10K on Sunday??? Yes I believe I do!! Might go for a walk later this evening.. I caught sight of my backside in the mirror in the bedroom and for a moment, thought someone had stuck the picture of the rear-end of an elephant on there.. where has my pert little peach gone???!! Heading down to reach the backs of my knees by the looks of it... ho hum... where's those hob-nobs??

11am Sassie ... you have to be there!!!

The Hobnobs were the plain variety. I like chocolate and I like biscuits, but I prefer to eat them separately.

I say "were" because the students have been very helpful in ensuring that I won't suffer the temptation of driving in rush-hour traffic with an open packet of Hobnobs in the car.

Michelle, you don't really want a pack of chocolate Hobnobs. You want a...OK, what have you got that's healthy? An apple? A fresh carrot, lightly peeled and dunked in tomato salsa? A boiled egg? A single chocolate Hobnob, eaten slowly?

Luckily for me V-Rap - all I have in is 'healthy' fruit, fruit, fruit.. Although I really do fancy some chocolate. I think it's cos it's the TOTM..no, that is a lie, I ALWAYS want chocolate, regardless...! But I am gonna be strong and resist the temptation to go and buy some.. I am going to save myself for tonight when I am gonna have a glass of bubbly..! Or, maybe a Baileys which has about a million calories I think!

The Mr. has just asked me whether I want to go out for a meal tonight - I've told him no, cos I'm don't feel like getting all dolled up so he said, what about pizza!! Now then.. what's a girl to do??!! Can't refuse a pizza can I... I mean, I always have the veggie one anyway.. and I do need those carbs for Sunday don't I?? That's it, I've convinced myself.. pizza it is.. and garlic bread.

Hope the pizza has LOaDS of cheese on
You need to find a restaurant where you can go in jogging bottoms
Was it the MR's turn to cook?
04/10/2002 at 18:37
Restaurant Benz..? No, he's bringing home a takeaway!!!! (Every night is his night to cook..!!!!) You had that gin yet?
04/10/2002 at 18:40
Yeah, nearly finished
Gonna make the gratin before the next one
I suppose Ill have to make the most of it today, shall only be able to have a bit of wine on Saturday before GNR
04/10/2002 at 18:43
I might have a drop of champers myself with the pizza!! Don't like spirits (the Mr does though - he drinks gin like it's lemonade!!). I'll be alcohol-free tomorrow night too (10K on Sunday) and I'll be thinking of you all at the GNR. What time does it start Benz? I might be back in time to see it on telly. M xx

Good luck to all of you doing the GNR. The rest of you just fill out the various race application forms. Got my number for the Wildlife Trust 10k today.
