Mental illness and running

I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

I have a plan! I am going to be a lazy bum until about 2 then grab my bike and cycle towards the gym. If I get a magic energy surge then I'll go along to the gym, pop in do a little resistance then cycle home which should be plenty of exercise for one day. (I'll take it easier on the hill at mile 6 though cos that's where I got the asthma attack last time) If I still feel like I'm running on empty I'll just go a few miles out then turn around and come home. I can then choose whether to drive to the gym later or just leave it alone. I am going on the something is better than nothing principle with exercise and I suspect I'll feel better once I get on with it. 

It's weird how draining social stuff is, it's a million times more draining than running a marathon though it sounds ridiculous.

changed the plan, did 6 1/2 miles on the bike and I'm going for a gentle bimble with SOLBsis later.

I feel much better for going out. 

Did you get to the shops bear?

Wafts another Christmas in Solb's direction

Solb, Frodo, I made a Christmas cake for you to eat now cos I thought you might want to try some now rather than waiting until Christmas eve.

I have done SOLB yes, well done on your bike ride



oooh did I hear cake being mentioned?

30/10/2012 at 16:13

I don't really like Chrismas cake but I think it's illegal to turn down cake isn't it? (except chocolate cake of course cos everyone knows that's yuck!) 

by 'eck SOLBsis would like to go to on Saturday. We should arrive about 11ish but we're taking lunch so we'll still be about in the afternoon if you and the mini's fancy it. If not there'll be plenty of other adventures, now I'm better I'm hoping to spend lots of time with my beautiful nieces

I would never turn down any cake, even choklit


Off out with some mates tomorrow so that's another social day

30/10/2012 at 19:58
Ooo that's brilliant bear. I'm really proud of you

Fab news bear. Remember to be kind to yourself, don't expect too much, and remember they are your mates and want you around cos of who you are, not cos they see you as a charity case who needs watching/entertaining

Thanks peeps!


I've been invited to something fun over the weekend too but unfortunately have had to turn it down due to my knee op

I'm off to bed now, night night

I'm sad today I need to run or something. I don't want to though *sulks*

31/10/2012 at 17:33
Huge hugs Solb. I've been stuck in all day with a poorly moo

I can hear all the trick or treaters screaming at each other, creepy neighbour on the doorstep, rain hammering down and weirdly church bells ringing. It's all making me feel really unsafe. Feels like all these unseen demons are circling

Hope Moo feels better soon

SOLB, tonight is All Hallow's Eve which is a super holy day in the Christian calendar.

Everything seems so much more scary and loud because your spidey senses go into hyperdrive when you are worried or scared.

Evening peeps!


Back from a day out with friends - seriously sleepy
