Mental illness and running

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

That's fair. When you have membership anyways does seem tricky to pay the extra. I think I'm going to write myself some sets to make me actually do them...I really do get bored when swimming by myself but i'll force myself to.

Also, as soon as it's warmer I'll go find some lidos

oooh ta

You can get more exciting ones if you pay, but I've only ever gone for the free ones.  laminate them or put them in a freezer bag so that they don't get wet on poolside.

Well done Bear

Thanks SuperCaz! Will try it. Ironically I am actually a swimming teacher and coach....i just can't coach myself well!

Congrats Bear

I need to get it now - should be in with a good shout

Good luck Bear.  Fingers crossed for you.

RWTW - I think it was you that was asking about the Bach flower remedies.  I don't know if that is the reason but I've certainly had a much better week since I started taking them.  It might just be that I'm keeping busy with interesting stuff at work at the moment which helps me.  Will be interesting to see how things progress over the next week or two, but it's certainly encouraging to be actually feeling reasonably OK ahead of a family visit this weekend.

Morning lovelies. Just popping in to say good luck to Bear on the job application and a massive congratulations to Solb for giving OCD a big kick in the butt. 

I get bored swimming in a pool too. I've started putting elastic hair bands on my wrist and swap the to the other hand every 100m to save me counting and it motivates me to see how many I've got still to do, or swap back over to the other hand again. But if you are doing 200 + lengths that might not work or you would be like Michelin Man on your arms lol.

Hi Soupy.

It was a major mudfest last night.  Sounds like I could be in for more of the same at the club event I'm at on Sunday where they're warning that marshy areas are now ponds.  At times like this my running shoes never get to dry out.  It's all good practice for Legends in a couple of weeks time though.

Stay clear. I have the lurgy. I feel pretty rubbish
15/02/2013 at 13:53

I might have the lurgy too.  Been sneezing a lot today

15/02/2013 at 14:05
This is aching, hurt, sore throat and head.
But I dragged myself to moo's hospital appt. Two weeks of waiting....

Been quiet on here today.  Is everyone taking the warnings of staying away literally.  Actually I had it first, but I did hold a handkerchief over my mouth when posting on here to avoid breathing my germs onto the forum. 

How did the appointment go by 'eck?

Away visiting family at the moment and I'm pleased to say feeling OK at the moment.

He has 2 weeks until his next appt eith her. She will then make a decision about tube feeding because his weight gain is static.

Hope people are feeling a bit better. Too much lurgy about

Got an 18 miler planned for tomorrow. Nervous. And it's silly...i know i can do it and it's going to be slow so will be fine and i shouldn't care about pace...but I can't help get nervous and doubt myself. Silly really.

Rwtw, I wish I were fit to run. I'm 90% certain I've got a chest infection, given the symptoms and the fact my dad and 2 friends have one.
I'm doing silly worrying about moo. Well, not really moo. Just trying to work out what I need to have in place in case he gets admitted
16/02/2013 at 19:36

by'eck that's no fun. Last year I had pneumonia for several months and so I really appreciate being well! (touch wood). I'm guessing the stress over moo isn't helping either . Planning is good. Know what you would need in case, and then if that does happen you can deal with it more effectively. As for the chest infection, I guess just try as much as you can to relax and rest...not easy when you have other worries I know . But do just think...once this is over, and it will be over and you will all be will appreciate being well so much more. It took 4 months to shake off the pneumonia, i had to pull out of some big swimming events that I had trained all year for and wouldn't be able to do again, and it was during my final year of uni and it just all felt like things would not improve....but once I was better it was a big weight off my shoulders and I suddenly appreciated things a lot will too, just hold on in there and lots of cuddles for the meantime

Thank you.
I will enjoy lots of cuddles
