How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Lotte, hope you get the hols sorted out. We can't go away because irritatingly I am running a proof over the October break. So annoying but as I am defending I know that there will be no offers so it's not going to go away! Well, unless the pursuer chucks it in which I doubt although he truly ought to as his case is pants.
We're officially in last chance saloon for baby making. On the plus side my cycle has really settled down this month and I was back to peaking late on day 14 and got the peak on the monitor on 15 and today 16. Better than the last few months of having it on days 18 and 19! Confessing to having slight OCD about the whole thing and been using monitor, the lines OPK, the digital OPK plus 2 fertility apps that I update with temp etc. and What to expect before your expecting. Desperate, moi? actually I just stopped believing the monitor then I bought the lines kit but could never interpret the results and so got the digi one!
Had a nice day as met 2 schoolpals for lunch at Gusto then went and met Andy and Lou who had been to the guide shop to buy Lou's Rainbows uniform and we had a wee coffee then went to Debenhams clothes shopping for Lou. Spent a small fortune on madam as they had 20 - 25% off. Was pleased at getting a £41 coat for her for £28.50. that takes it into the just a bit more expensive than Sainsburys range which I'm happy with!
Andy's running Stirling 10K tomorrow so we'd better head up to bed now. I did 58 mins on the spinbike tonight cos I CBA to go outside. At least I did something!
Sorry to all who I've missed. can't remember if I said well done to MM so well done there! Janie, the Ted stresses sounded blown out of proportion to me. Night night ladies. xx
oh I knew there was one more thing - RF I'd be bloody raging! For goodness sake don't let her train!
Caro there's a boy of 8 or 10 who goes to my intervals. He beats me every time. It makes me want to cry!
Ha ha EF. You sound like me teaching Leila. I am def no teacher either. I tell her not to bother if she isn't going to write her name properly or make an effort!
Just out of interest, why is it no good if you peak at day 18 or 19? I would have thought a peak is a peak no matter which day it is in your cycle (sorry for being ignorant if I am way out)
Wow Caro... Osteopath on the NHS is a rarity. I am sure they will sort you in 2 or 3 sessions. Well done on the park run.
Good luck for tomorrow Sonya.
And RF, I would be annoyed too.Yes, discourage her as much as you can from training regularly.
Thanks for the kindle thing JT. My Dad wants one for his birthday so I will suggest to go halfs with my sister.
EF how on earth could you do 58mins on the spin bike. Don't tell me you could finish a run on 5.87miles or something Oh I so hope it works for you. I don't know the answer to your question either Anj by the way. And yes agree Edinburgh is fab but I would def want somewhere warmer for our commune. We will probably be stopping in Ed during our travels south.
Those forest campsites look great Vixo, far more up our street and I think price is ok BUT they won't let me book online as they say you can only have a max of 6 people on one site booking. Grrrr, will have to try and phone them.
Sorry to keep asking lots of questions but how feasible is a day trip into London from there? Probably drive as far as possible then get a train into centre. The youngest 4 kids have never been on a train!
Lotte - I would say you could probably get into Waterloo from a station nearby in the new forest, I am not sure how long that will take though. You could drive to Basingstoke and get into Waterloo from there though I think. Or you could drive somewhere like Reading which will take about an hour to drive and then get you into London Paddington in 45 minutes or so.
Ah, this ovulation stuff is so complicated. I tried using an ovulation kit and never got a peak. In fact the only time a bold line came up was when I did a test and was already pregnant and didnt realise.
Lotte, I probably couldnt finish a run on 5.87... however I am getting better at finishing on 4.60 or 4.75!
And Eric and I could come and meet you in London Lotte
21.10 Camlo, was aiming for sub 21 but oh well
Quick camping france question........when do you think we need to book for things like site and ferry given we are now tied to school hols? And can you guys (MM, JT) tell me where you stayed again this yr please!)
We've stayed at http://www.woodyhyde.co.uk/ a few times before and had a lovely time although there is a steam train that passes the site at regular intervals!
I used to peak late but when I was taking Agnus Castus it used to prolong the luteal phase so at least the darn things had a chance to stay in place for long enough! I used to have pretty long cycles consequently - consistently more like 30-32 days but thankfully did the trick (this was when conceiving Scarlett), J happened after a course of Clomid but I'll never know if it was the drugs or other holistic things I was trying at the time which did the trick! These days my cycles are shorter, but def short luteal phase but I don't care as I don't want any more children!!
Ummm - Camlo - fab going on all the domestic stuff.
RF - that would really pi** me off for sure.
Hubby drove me nuts yesterday as was knackered from driving my car back up on Friday and generally drifted around the house creating chaos and confusion! And I completely lost the plot at the whole family last night ... can't say it helped much as I couldn't even concentrate on my run this morning so proposed 10-miler became 5 but better than nothing I guess.
Right have roast chicken to sort so best be off here.
And WELL DONE on park run Caro
And hope Sonya is enjoying her half marathon - it's gorgeous scenery if a tad hilly!
We used to do ferry crossing with Norfolk Line ... went Dover to Dunkirk which is a little further along than Calais but not significant and journey possibly slightly longer, they came up cheaper than other ferry crossings. We usually did toll roads, yes, extra cost, but was better than the implications and domestic mayhem that arose from getting lost on back roads in rural France!!! The ferries were great too - had massive clear windows in the restaurant/eating areas so kids could see outside etc.
EF - no cycle would be really hoping for you
Vixo - missed bit about Eliza and the nose-dive ... ouchy ouchy!
