I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Yes, the sleep fairy didn't get to me until about 5 in the morning but I'm up and about. I feel I'm not being sensible in getting up though! Does this mean I'm going to have to go for a run on my own?
Morning all. Thanks for the cake Solb.
Lovely to hear from you Mick, not seen much of you around lateley. Hows Phil?
Sorry the sleep fairy has been slacking in sleep duties. Its one of the worst things and I used to dread going to bed. Would spend an hour nodding off then wake up at 3.30. Thankfully things a lot better now and I'd hate to go back to that. I've cut out caffeine apart from my first cup of tea in a morning, I've managed to acquire a taste for redbush tea that has sleep properties and I can reccommend a great book
say goodnight to insomnia
All this talk about running........ I suppose I ought to get my kit ready and head out. I'll feel better afterwards. Thanks for the inspiration.
I think I'd better go sooner rather than later. Just another round of toast needed first. Then about another six excuses before I finally make it! I will make it though.
I normally avoid self help books too. I saw this one in a charity shop for 20p so it had to be worth a go and its the best 20p I've ever spent. Its based on propper research to not quirky.
Breakfast first, then a run with my husband. Soon. Honest, soon.
Actually I was thinking of suggesting that the forum should be renamed to 'Mental illness and running and cake'. I''ll have a run on your behalf today then By eck.
hi, were fine thanks - Phil is a man now, life's a little different now - i just have to rebuild after my lung operation
i do hope u are ok - i cannot place who u are - but most know me, i dont know many
This is a superb thread btw
Mick - you've zoomed past me on many a half marathon with your easy easy easy chant. Not had chance to chat propper, you are too fast for me.
next time u shout me, we'll run side by side and chat
my pb days are over - Consultants advise is to run and have fun, but forget pbs
Tewkesbury HM we clocked 1:43 one year -
Abingdon FM one year we clocked 4:03
we cannot complain, we've had fun, now its time to give a bit back and have fun and help and advise others
Thanks for the link to the insomnia book, SD. When I have been depressed lack of sleep was probably the thing that most disrupted the day. I am not having to deal with it at the moment but I like to keep an eye out for useful tips so I cannot prevent things early.
Hope everyone else is well.
Done the run - 32 minutes. Better time of day to go than last week - car park much quieter. Just as I was ready to go - a car went to pull into the car park causing me to flee into the woods. Got me off to a good start as it turned out. As previously, the ad's seem to be helping the legs more than the head at the moment so, although I was very nervous, the legs just did the work. A positive step from last Sunday.
I have no internet at the moment so am out of the loop!
Good to hear you're well micknphil.
SD, that insomnia book looks really good, I might get it for my girlfriend for christmas (Who said romance is dead?!).
I hope everyone's not getting too stressed about Christmas. I was first on scene at a horrific car crash the other day and it certainly put things in perspective. Though I don't think my new employers like my laidback attitude to punctuality!
Well done for the run LR.
Peace and love,
Well done, By Eck.
How about Soup Dragon and SOLB - can we make it four out of four - or is SOLB still hiding under the duvet?
Had my chat with my friend who thinks 'phase 1' is a good idea. Just a question of putting it into words and the timing. We have a social night on Thursday this week so I was thinking of after that as I think I would find that more difficult (i.e. too emotional) if I'd just sent the e-mail then.
