Mental illness and running

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

It hasn't rained down here the last few days

Mine is horridable today, send rain

Got really cold last night at an orienteering event on the common.  Fortunately dodged the showers though.  Same again this evening helping out at a trail race that the running club were hosting.  Quite amusing watching the spot prizes being handed out to every 15th finisher.  On a couple of occasions there were two people racing each other in a sprint finsh who then found that the person who lost was the one who was in line for the spot prize. 

Unfortunately, looks like neither the running club nor orienteering club are doing their Saturday training sessions this week which they've been doing recently so I'm left with the challenge of trying to get out there on my own.

And in other news, I've got an appointment with a Psychological Wellbeing Practioner next Tuesday.

Good news LR


I've had too much caffeine

10/05/2013 at 22:20

Not usually too much of a problem for me.  About to start on the wine though.

I used to drink way more than this when I was teaching but I'm out of practice

10/05/2013 at 22:31

Well I'm justifying it on the basis that practice is needed for next weekend.

Oh and -

Ha ha ha parties YAY!

Looking forward to the party.

I've been feeling really lonely the last couple of days ... have decided to be a bit brave and go to a gay bar on my own tonight. Not really on the pull but I figured a girl on her own in a straight bar on a Saturday night might be a bit misleading! I just dont have any local friends and that sucks (though I am stupidly blessed with the incredible friends i have in far away places) that said the nearest gaybar is a 45 minute drive away so not that local anyway!
Kinda nervous and kind of excited, I've never been to a gaybar before (well except for a nervous one drink wonder when I was 19)

I'll be with you in spirit Solb, supporting you from afar.  You can do this, my brave little chicken.

11/05/2013 at 15:57

It was a bit of a spontaneous decision, truthfully though I've got nothing to lose. If I go and hate it I can just slope off home. Hope it's fun though *wibble* 

11/05/2013 at 16:10

Go for it SOLB and beat the wibble!  Hope it goes well for you.  I'll join Caz in the cheerleader squad.  Pom poms at the ready, Caz!

Just found out that there's an urban orienteering event on in Chesterfield tomorrow so I might get a trip out for that.  Certainly having an unproductive day today.  Even my usual can't get going till after midday rule hasn't applied today.

Thank you guys  

I sometimes have days like that too LR, sounds like you need a rest day or two. If you can't get motivated there's no point in beating yourself up about it, pushing against a brick wall will only make you tired for longer!

11/05/2013 at 16:23

Well that's why I'm thinking I might has well go out tomorrow as I'm struggling to achieve anything here.  Had a quiet three days last weekend which at least made for a better week at work this week.  Still difficult to get moving on days off though.  Just hoping that the change in medication may help things in a while.

On a positive note though, I have cheese.  Oops, wrong forum!

11/05/2013 at 16:30

Ha that's OK you can bring your nasty cheesy stuff here, the mundanies let me play over there despite my dislike of said flavoured fat (and I love my cheese loving mundanie Tshirt all the same)

Good call on the snoozy day LR, I think I might have a little walk, nowhere to go but the hayfever is still ganging up on me with asthma so I've not run all week. I have a docs appointment on Tuesday to beg for better antihistamines and to ask for some advice about a nasty trapped nerve in my back that has refused to heal by itself in 6 weeks - I love running. Hurry up and remember that body!

I skipped my a/ds yesterday and have only just taken them today. Forgot the dreadful sinking sick feeling I get every time I move my eyes in withdrawal. Ooops! I'm taking Duloxetine at 90mgs though the psych said there's no evidence to show that 90 is better than 60 so I want to reduce them. Anyone else take them?

11/05/2013 at 16:39

My hayfever has been bad too.  I've had three asthma attacks in the last 24 hours.  Prior to that it had been months since I needed my inhaler

11/05/2013 at 16:42

you OK Scaz? Sounds like you could do with a docs appointment too!
