Mental illness and running

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

I'm putting off getting dressed.  Once I'm dressed I'll have to go to the gym

I know the feeling.  I can never resist using song titles and lyrics in that way.  I have to confess to even consulting the 'Guiness book of British hit singles' for some assistance there. 

Gotta move now - er maybe in a bit.

I'm too lazy to lace lyrics and titles in, I always have to Google it. I've passed the last decade in a bubble - I know no music or films or well anything.

I'm hating all the news coverage of Saville though I hope it will make children believed and help them to know they have the power to tell. I think it's good its being talked about I just wish I could avoid hearing it.

Soupy if you haven't run yet I'm heading out in an hour. I'd like to sleep more cos I haven't slept much in the last few weeks but I have boring domestic stuff I want to achie(d and sleeping all day won't help with a night routine

Morning lovelies. Today is clearly a bit od a lazy day cos I'm resisting getting out of bed at the minute. Busy night at work last night, on the whole positive, but only a smidgin of anxiety symptoms which is good. Just considering my options now for the rest of the weekend as a rarity I've got nothing in. Considering one of those long adventure type runs tomorrow morning where you head off with a camel bac, food and iPod and see how far and where it takes you. I'll see how motivated if feel (and if its snowy!) In the morning! It's days like this I wish I still had my gym membership caz, I really fancy a bit off a work out followed by a relaxjng sauna/swim after!
Hope everyone has a positive day whether that involves running kit, Jim jams or anything in between. Big hugs all around x

Lazy day indeed. I'm dressed, cooked brunch and changed the bed linnen and now flopped again. I'm tired so going to have a lazy rest day. Got to clean the chickens out before it gets dark but thats the only essential. Might go back to the tribute club tonight. There is a Duran Duran tribute on but they have sent out a plea for an audience cos nobody has booked. 

Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand..........

I love the Stones though, sadly I'm old enough to remember Tumbling Dice and Brown Sugar when they first came out.

I need to run but it is cold and miserable out there
12/01/2013 at 14:38

No its not by 'eck.  Use some positive thinking and do it.  Think about how much worse it could be out there and how fortunate you are not to be running in that.  Not promising that it will work but it might do.

have planned my run for after the children's tea - an 8 mile run between a couple of villages. It will mean a headtorch and pavements but it is a run
12/01/2013 at 14:55
And if it is windy and rainy then I will be giving my jacket a good test

Ok I need help with my three things. I'm not sure what counts.
So far we have
Taken something to the tip (I pointed out it was on our way to point 2)
Looked at kitchens and bathrooms and found possibilities
Done the supermarket shop and put it away

It just feels like things we have done together rather than my effort

Also, moo's dietician is going on maternity leave in April for the full year. Her replacement is the woman we now refuse to see

By eck no rules about the three things, no reason why you should have to achieve them all by yourself ... to be honest most days doing something with someone else counts as a thing in its own right in my book!

I smiled at the lazy days, mine is too but not really in a good way. I'm making myself miserable not getting on with stuff. In fact with that in mind - I'm off to start a 'thing' it'll all suddenly get easier once I get on with it

What Solb said!

Am cheerleading by 'ecks run by lying on my back here doing pom pom push ups.  It's the best I can do.

Got a friends birthday drinks out this evening.  Was thinking of giving it a miss but think I'm going to make the effort.  I have the excuse of catching the last bus home so it's not too long or late one.

SD - can't find any Duran Duran related song title puns so you're getting a reprieve from those this time.

SOLB - just catching up on the news and I do appreciate how difficult it must be for you hearing so much about this stuff so big hugs - ((((SOLB)))).

'eck - an 8 mile run is worth 3 things in a day in my book.

I fell asleep again. Had an awful headache too so not going to Duran Duran. This rock n roll lifestyle obviously doesn't suit me.  Didn't clean the chickens out.  

Hope you manage your "thing" solb.

Mr f your adventure run sounds fun. I love making up a run as I go along. There is a real sense of freedom to it, in fact might do that tomorrow, unless I do a bike ride. I've got to get up to 50 miles by April so I ought to get some miles in really, but running takes much less planning.

I know soupy, I'm concious that I have a hundred to run at the end of march so I really need to pull my finger out.

I've always wanted chickens. Either chickens or alpacas. I think they'd make just lovely pets.
12/01/2013 at 18:35

I chickens, don't know why - that's why I've 'adopted' Chicken who lives near me. 

Thing went ok, two more to find - I am tired and a bit sad today but it's OK.

My big focus next week is on routine - I am really struggling to get back on my feel after the mini episode. I would like to run and pull my sleep back into order and I am going to nag Sally about the appointment with the Richmond Fellowship who might know if there is a way that i can make going back to uni financially viable. 

100 in one go mr f or a hundred by? 

12/01/2013 at 18:35

You are running 100 miles!!!!

I'm biking the 50 miles in April on a sportive then a half ironman in May and June.

Some friends of mine have chickens - watching them forage around is just great therapy.  It's just great to see them in their natural environment doing what comes naturally to them.  They can be quite comical as well.

Oh well, better head out into town.  Do I sound keen enough!
