How do you get going again after pregnancy?
if you like murders there is an author called peter james and i just bought no. 2 of the lewis trilogy for 20p!
missed Drs Thong and Thang, that's hysterical
Chocolate porrige I'm afraid.
Think it does include ultras but I hardly race any more, I have no social life ... I am very sad!!
I have ordered this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Branx-Fitness-20kph-Foldable-Treadmill/dp/B007VODZ28
Vixo - not surprised you are wasted, that sounds a grim night. I had S wandering around a 4am asking if it was time to get up yet! Tonight she has promised that if it's dark she won't come into my room and will stay in bed cos obviously it is still night time ...
Am here ladies. Thanks for thinking of me. I have read on the odd day but am so rushed off my feet I just don't have time for FB and come on here too. I know you all know what I'm up to anyway so thats fine.
Still running and racing. Ticking along at the mo around 60mpw until I ramp up just before xmas for marathon. Had fab weekend away with my friend and loads of stuff on the last two weekends with parties and races.
Nanna's birthday on Sat so we went down to Stourhead to visit her tree and celebrate her birthday. Yes hubbie doing a mad challenge to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. We tried to find an event the four (with SIL and BIL) of us could do an adventure race or such like but BIL has a malignant brain tumour now so thats not going to work until he is better (which he will be, all very positive on that front).
Been reading about EF. Thinking of you with all you are going through...
TT in the UK and so close. Next time for sure??
Nutella... Yuk!!!! I hate hazelnuts and praline so thats why. Almonds, walnuts, in fact all other nuts. But praline makes me feel sick!!
Yum. Just had some of my winning cake from Over the Hills race. We cracked it open on Sat for Nanna's birthday. Rich fruit cake. Very yum!!
How do you see the handicap on Power of 10? Can't see anything about a handicap?
Madam actually napping so best get on...
Oh and forgot to say wee S probably needs glasses like the other two, having the test done in Jan, just had preliminary check up. Feeling very emotional about that. No squint though like Harry so at least thats something ...
Given that I run vicariously through my sister at the moment, here is her latest write up in the local press
oh TT, you have my sympathies ... was a long night for us on Fri eve with us all in one room with a hideously overtired scarlett etc etc. Hope you get some sleep!
EF ... (())
Survived the day with four kids, in fact they all played really well after a bit of a horrible start! Loaded bike up with rack on the tow bar and took their bikes plus mine to forest for a little bike ride, saw some other friends there too. Then they basically trashed my lounge but were playing some wonderful make-believe stuff so I forgive. Then all had swimming lessons so they are pleasantly tired!!
Looking forward to getting out for a run tomorrow after five days of NO RUNNING - eek!!!
Treadmill arrives on 3 December
Off to order some proper pilates mats and some blocks and head cushions and sort out some proper insurance now - so that's where my library earnings will be going for the next month or so!
Good to hear from you MM.
Hope you are hanging in there Lotte.
Few quiet souls at the moment - TT is another ...
Hope you are having a better day Vixo
Oh, I remember the travelling with one room for all of us, hubby and I sitting in the dark waiting for L to go to sleep. I don't miss that bit!! Have a safe journey TT. Glad you are well, I am feeling heavier myself but well otherwise and still managing to plod out 4-5 times a week.
Treadmill looks fab CC. I am now torn between two... the one you are getting and this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Maxima-Fitness-MF-2000-ProFX-Auto-Incline-MF-2000-TM-XL/dp/B004B71U16/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top Think they are much of a much... and eek 4 kids CC!!
EF, the waiting is the worst part...kind of like you are in limbo. We had the wait with this one, when the preg test was positive but too early to show on a scan and I was bleeding. I had to have the HcG levels done and then go back a couple of days later, then wait for the call to see if they had doubled. Then have it done all over again. I think it took about 2 weeks in total before we had confirmation all was "ok." Really hoping all is good for you.
Feeling a bit less fed up today. Went to the gym, then shopping for bras without underwire and got measured in M&S... had a bit of a shock at how saggy my boobs looked in non underwired bras. And a laugh (to myself) at how some of the bras the assistant bought made me look like Madonna (in pointy bra), and not in a good way Anyway, ran out of the changing room without the ones she recommended and bought a couple of T-Shirt Bras that I have yet to try on!!
AND... I did some work this evening...which is possibly why I feel a bit better having at least made a start on the assessment. Just had hot choc and mince pie and heading to bed I think.
Vixo - glad E is on the mend, poor thing.
EF - totally feel your pain/madness/frustration. Hang in there and everything is still crossed!! Love the Drs .
Caro - porridge and nutella? Mmmmm....
Just a quickie really, am feeling full of cold this evening - kids' lurgy no doubt so hopefully not a bad one. N has been awful recently, although it is TOTM which doesn't help . He hasn't had a nap in 4 days and is not good with it with me! Grandma wound me up today, refusing to hear anything bad about him and telling me he's "probably growing out of naps dear" - yes that's why he's naughty as anything when he's tired! And breathe...
Anj - I was torn between the Maxima and the Branx ones too - spent ages deliberating and then almost just stuck a pin in the paper type thing!!!
Vixo - I think it's always amazing how quickly they perk up once they DO start eating/sleeping properly ... if only we responded so quickly to stuff.
Thankfully when my glasses are removed at hairdressers I am totally blind!!
Joshua is totally attached to the fake black plastic glasses I bought him for Harry Potter dressing up. Even though they are more Harry Hill than Harry Potter. He hardly took them off all weekend, and keeps putting them on to read stuff - like daddy and grandad do!!
Hot chocolate and mince pie - yum yum but well done on the studying though. Much better after plenty of procrastinating I find.
Just been looking up quotes for insurance and working out how much it will be to buy some of the kit I want ... but off to bath/bed now. And OFF here!
What are underworked bras Vixo? Just googled it and come up with all sorts of bizarre pages!
Can you get insurance through REPS CC? I think that is where I got my 1st PT insurance.
