I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Or in the case of today, SuperCaz jumps in the water and was so worried about her costume coming off that she forgot that breathing was supposed to be difficult.
Solb, are you thinking about your asthma when you run? I used to find that if I worried about it then I was certain to have an attack. If I forgot about it then often (but not always) I didn't. In my case I think the expectation caused the reality.
Well done caz. I hate that cold water can't breathe feeling and I get that in summer lol. I hate the feeling of losing my cossie to lol.
Mr Soup has now safely returned from Devon is a lot lot lot lot better.
One of my freinds has her photo from today in Metro newspaper. They got that in quickly
Yay to Spotty's paw and to Bricki's return. Sorry you're taking 2nd place there Bricki - but I'm like that when it comes to animals.
Good social trip today - if slightly weird at times . Can't even begin to explain.
Photo from yesterdays event taken after I had completed my width (50 yards) of the lido
Hi Bricki. Nice to see you back.
Spotty hugs all round.
Lovely photo Caz with your usual lovely big smile. You are quite mad though.
Got to dash back to watching tennis now. Murray needs to hold serve to stay in the set.
Pooch to 5k...that's funny
SuperCaz - that looks amazing!! I am definitely a fair weather swimmer though! How can you deal with the cold!?Had a big old cry last night. Over nothing really. Just anxious and blue. But it seemed my wishing for the snow to go had an effect - heaps of rain last night washing away the good few inches of snow...meaning I managed a 15 miler today. Got rid of that blue feeling for sure!
The same way as you deal with the cold or tired muscels when you run 15 miles! I was only in the water about 30 seconds.
Really I don't know why everyone makes such a big deal out of the cold. You are all fighting much bigger issues on a daily basis. I know I will be warm again shortly but you are all delaing with stuff that has been going on for weeks, months or years and has no set finish date.
I am so proud of all of you for what you achieve every single day. Don't try to tell me that I'm any more special than that.
Caz, That's very true, well said. Still, I'm not a fan of the cold even if I know i'll get warm later... Why I still live in England is beyond me...
