*too foggy (not that foggy!)

Boo to black clouds, dust, etc. but lots of good stuff too for a change - great running, swimming (go M!), new wetsuits, PBs, anniversaries and riding lessons. 

All ok here. I'm so glad I stopped work earlier this pregnancy (& resigned!) as I've felt heaps better physically even with the heat. But things are a bit hectic/stressful as wan accepted an offer on our London house so if it all works out we will be leaving Londonat the end of September - 9 days before my c section! We haven't got anywhere to move to yet so it looks like we will have to put our stuff in storage and live with my parents for a bit. That might be ok as I've heard you can't do much for a few wks after Caesarian. But not indefinitely! And golly, moving/selling houses is stressful! I've never sold a house before and I'm paranoid they will change their minds! 

Missing exercise badly at the mo for stress relief. Doing loads of walking and cleaning and stuff so I'm active but it's not the same as a run!

I'm off...... I may be some time....




going to Yorkshire to climb the 3 peaks tomorrow.

But hopefully you'll be back Camlo! 

Enjoy yorkshire

We're off to France Sun evening.  Still have sooooo much packing and organising to do.

Ohh good luck Camlo. I did that once many moons ago!

The surgery went well and I am recovering pretty well. It's less painful and I'm more mobile than I thought I would be. Still pretty sore though and have to be very strict about not bending or lifting for ages. Luckily hubby is being great at the moment

Wishing you a speedy recovery Hoggle

So I'm very impressed with Happy Little Soles who Vixo told us about - I was looking on there for school shoes for M, but procrastinating and never got round to buying them while they were on sale.  Plus I only had her feet measured this wk, and I didn't trust myself to do it properly so wanted a professional to do it as well before spending £40 on shoes!  So once I'd finally confirmed what size I wanted I then googled them and found them a bit cheaper on another website, so I e mailed Happy Little Soles, and told them I'd found them cheaper so would they sell them to me at the sale price - and they said yes!  And then I cheekily asked if they would mind not posting them for 10 days as we're going on holiday, so they're hanging onto them for a couple of wks for me.  That's what I call good customer service.

Au revoir all - see you in 2 wks!

Bonnes vacances Caro!

59:47 for me at York 10k - yippee!  First time under an hour since before Sophie was born, very pleased!  Nice flat route, loads of people (it's a Jane Tomlinson race) but enough room and I felt good most of the way round really.  Had to keep pushing in the last couple of km (did 5k in 29omething so wasn't going to lose out on a sub-hour 10k!), then didn't see the 9k marker so didn't speed up till I saw the finish.  Feeling very virtuous .

Camlo - enjoy the Peaks!  Give me a wave if you pass Sheffield .

Hoggle - great that the op wasn't as bad as you thought.  Fingers crossed you'll be back to normal in no time.

yippppeeeee I have peaked, not once, not twice but a whopping 3 times!!! 

Left the house at 4:45 to drive to the start and signed out at 7:15. Walking in group of 4 but actually felt like I was walking in a group of about 100 as there were so many forming a stream up the 1st hill to penygent. Had to scramble a bit to reach the peak by 8:15 (good start). Few bits of rain but not enough to worry us as we picked our way down and then marched the 8 or so miles to the butty van for a bacon roll. Seemed to take an age and i was concerned that we were falling behind schedule. Long, long climb onto the top of wernside which was blowing a gale and then very steep descent into the valley and another tea. Thankfully eldest had taken the rucksack off me at the top of wernside as it had been digging into my back so I felt a bit lighter to climb the final peak ingle borough. Mad scramble with scary bits but the view from the top was amazing and we could see the sea at Blackpool! I knew it was a good way back to the car but I hadn't figured on the difficult terrain lasting nearly all the way! Ankles and hips were sore especially as I had the rucksack back..... eldest jogged the last few miles so he could have a fag and time for a call to mates. We finished in 10hr 45 and could have paid £6 for a certificate and badge but couldn't be arsed......feet were dry and not a blister in sight! ok today, bit stiff but nowt much.  4 hour drive home today but then had 10mins on my new vibration/ power plate - not sure if it is garbage but think it helped ease the tightness?

 Hoggle - so glad the op went well. take it easy. 

Boo to courier JT but yippee to PB for Joggergirl! 

Enjoy all the holidays folks!

Well done Camlo! Was it a specific 3 peaks event somewhere? I did the traditional 3 Peaks many years ago (not the race but later in the year) with some work colleagues. It was definitely an 'experience' as it turned out I was the only one who could read a compass (necessary several times in complete whiteouts!). Most of my colleagues were proper London-ites who had no experience in the outdoors (one brought a plastic rain poncho out of a packet which was interesting when it snowed at the top of Ben Nevis. I enjoyed it but we were woefully under-prepared and had such huge ability differences in the group. As I was the only one who had a clue what I was doing which was amusing when trying to convince my boss that what he thought was completely wrong and I knew better!! We spent one night in a backpackers during it as well so didn't do it in the 24 hours.

Recovery is going well. I can pretty much do everything except lift and bend excessively. So I can get down on the floor with Matilda etc. Mum has been staying which has been wonderful. I think she will go tomorrow and then next week I will go own to the farm with Matilda for 5 days to make sure I continue taking things easy.

Well done on race RF!!

Hmmm who else - did I spot on FB that it was MM's birthday? If so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

JT your neighbours sound seriously annoying!!!

no Hoggle it was the 3 peaks in Yorkshire and we just did it for ourselves. Saw lots of organised groups though (last week they had 2000 walkers in the area). back to work this morning....... already threatening the kids that I WILL get rid of the TV if they can't get dressed and breakfasted without taking their eyes off it..... 

05/08/2013 at 13:20

Yep Hoggle 40 today. Not feeling great about it, but having a down day anyway. 

05/08/2013 at 14:35

Aw hope you have a good day MM, I am 40 next year and not looking forward to it already!

05/08/2013 at 18:00

Trip to docs and am now on HRT. I soooo hope it works. Off out for dinner which is nice as grandad here to look after Sophie tom. Was hoping to go out on bike with hubbie but torrential rain not inspiring

05/08/2013 at 23:07

I really hope HRT starts to improve things for you MM and that you managed to have a nice evening.

Cant believe school holidays are ending soon CC - seems like they just started (well probably doesn't feel like that for you!

good luck with the HRT and hope your birthday was ok after MM. 

yippee to good dentist visits, excellent orienteering placing and fab exam results in TT's house (saw on fb)!

Boo to going to work....... 

06/08/2013 at 21:59

Thanks cc.  Doc thinks it will do the trick, but does mean I'm on them for 10 years if the 3 month trial works. Better than getting stress fractures and osteoporosis later on though. My GP runner friend convinced me. Also being checked for coeliacs and having a scan of my ovaries just to cover all options am sure both fine. Being 40 not worrying me. This is awful though and I've had enough!

eek not looking forward to getting older at all...... 

had a lovely yomp over some hills with club last night but 5 miles took well over an hour and my knees and hips were screaming!! I am also getting hot flushes, headaches, nausea and bad moods but was putting it down to work stress. 

CC well jealous...... hope I can give my kids the same experiences as yours.
