How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Thanks Vixo, I would love ideas of things to do so will certainly message you. Will you have time for a wee meet up?
Local marathon for me today. Hadn't really made my mind up if I was going to do it until friday. Tough course and lacking motivation, the forecast had been dire but suddenly improved so thought I would give it a go, very hilly and out and back so bound to get the wind in your face one way (today it was on the way back). Mini taper which involved cut back mileage thursday and friday and a rest day yesterday, my first no running day for 3 weeks ! Anyway pretty gobsmacked to clock a 3.08, only 2 mins slower than my London PB.
Supposed to be at a 50th birthday party at the moment in the hall, but sent hubby and kids on ahead and I will catch up after a quick shower, instead i am scoffing a cuppa and my mars bar from my goody bag. Anyway better move it, feel the red medicine calling
Lotte you are unbelieveable!! How many other people can get up in the morning, decide to run a marathon and clock 3.08??? No point saying the word nutter.........well done!
Bloody hell Lotte. You are amazing. There I was feeling proud as punch of my run and you do that. I just don't know how you do it. I guess you are quite a bit younger than me but the miles do me in now tbh!! Well done you! I ran 74 this week, I guess with a lot of quality running thrown in, but I am feeling it for sure even after standing in the cold swimming pool for 45 mins!! I assume you didn't drink last night mind, so must have made up your mind really before this morning?
Red medicine consumed here. Kids have been so hyper all day as the weather so awful. Hubbie is ripping apart our bedroom so red medicine was very necessary!
P.S. Love the
"worn out, grey, no bladder control hag nearing 40.... " Camlo. Sounds just like me, except I get the hairdresser to dye my grey hairs blonde!!!
The Britax Kid Plus has 15% off on Mothercare website which makes it about £106, Aidan is 16kg so he could go in one now I think. Mothercare have 15% off most things if you are spending more than £100 btw! We also got two john lewis booster cushions for the other car, they were £15 each and are just for the playschool run basically.
Lotte - speedy lady, well done!
No running here, I think i have a sinus infection but i can't decide whether to sit it out or go and get antibiotics, had it when I was pregnant too so I'm fairly pissed off to be ill again!
Camlo, your house build looks exciting, hope the rain isnt a problem!
Good news EF what happens next?
Kinsey, boo hope you are feeling better soon.
Tangy - I do fancy EMF again (it was my first marathon back in 2007) but always put off by the timing, I'm rubbish in the heat!
Camlo - yay to the boys and their winnings and on your race too. Your races always sound interesting!
MM - I guess its all quite new to me whereas your body has been taking the pounding for years! I actually had 2 wee glasses of red on sat night, purely for medicinal purposes, got to help the iron level any way I can It was on friday I decided if the weather stayed as it was I would do it. The guy who organises it had messaged me and I felt bad not doing it. What you doing to your bedroom btw?
So sad to think about Hegs, was anyone a FB friend with her? I have had my third (and final) letter telling me to go for a smear, I resolve not to ignore it this time and just make the damn appointment.
Anyway, at work, better stop skiving and get on.
Sounds like a fab weekend EF and good news on the ovarian reserve, not that I know what that means?
Just decorating Lotte. It's much needed. Desperate to get rid of minging carpet, fitted wardrobes and artex ceiling. None of which were put in by us, but we have put up with them for 3.5 years. Time to add our style and tastes. We have finally decided we cannot afford to do an extension so have to do up what we have ...
You are amazing Lotte. I drank quite a bit Sat night, but also had a lot of food which kind of helps doesn't it!!
8 very soggy, flooded miles this morning for me. Clock in our bedroom has obviously been played with by some little fingers though as we suddenly realised we were 15 mins late. I went out for my run at 6:15am instead of 6am. Ooops. Just about got to school and nursery on time!!
Ooh I forgot T tid - great news!
Next for me is a nurse's appointment on 15 Oct. On further reading (think google) it seems that quality is more important than quantity but that seems to apply to the under 35s in particular. For over 35 you could have neither and so therefore I am well pleased to have a high reserve even if they do all turn out to be a bit crap! Though I do then find myself thinking.....is there a decent reserve because bod doesn't actually bother to release the ruddy eggs half the time......?
Had hoped to have lovely relaxing evening pottering about on the pc. Instead internet packed in all over again so had to get out the new superhub virgin sent me last week and actually connect the darned thing. so 1.5 hours later here I am. It was actually incredibly straightforward except for the fact that you needed a bloody spanner to disconnect the old modem - the poxy plastic thing they included was useless.
MR cheers for the invite, Loulou very excited. We're in! Glad you're making progress. I did 11 miles over the weekend in that glorious sunshine so I'm getting there too. 5.5 of them were done on Sunday morning to pick up the car post wedding!
We have the Rodi xr too and a trunki boostapack as our spare. It will make carsharing virtually impossible if they insist on a full car seat for under 12s! At least you can chuck the booster seat in the back and it doesn't take up too much room but is there for emergencies.
WEll done RF and good luck in the novice tri. I admire anyone who does a tri. There's absolutely no way I could do it. I'd drown. Then I'd do all the downhills with my brakes on on the bike cos I'm a feardy!
Off to get a wee cuppa tea. Speak soon
