How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Oh Camlo, I really hope hubby makes it up to you somehow over the weekend! That doesn't sound like the jolliest of birthdays (())
Lotte - hope things get better for you too, sounds like you are being a fab friend though.
Ummm forgotten loads now ... will come back later about trail-type shoes.
Glorious day here but very windy and pretty chilly. Was meant to be doing 15 today after yesterdays 10 BUT I seem to have pulled something in my calf was niggling midway through run yesterday but didn't effect stride or anything but was sore last night. So iced it, massaged it, rest it for a couple of days and see I guess. Pi**ed off though, two weeks of decentish training after three weeks of bugger all and now this. Not sure if cycling on it is a good idea so going for rest and I have an orienteering comp on Sunday so that will tell me whats what I guess.
Treadmill arrives on 3 December though so better be up and running again by then!
Hubby home tonight ... first weekend at home for three weeks (I know I saw him in Edinburgh last weekend but not quite the same!). Will go too quick though.
Sonya - good to hear you are getting out. LOL to Jeremy Clarkeson
Great speedy workouts from Lotte and CM
Christmas fair - yes, I like them too, think there might be one at Brodie Castle, must check that out. Christmas shopping - no, none done, Will be Amazon I expect for most. S wants a DS which is fair as her brother has one and she plays on it all the time so it will be an investment. And she wants some more Zoobles (Lotte, that was inspired as she loves them!) so easily pleased. J is keen for a guitar now he's started learning and apparently wants a microphone too. Best get ar*e in gear with all of this soon I suppose, plus stuff I need to send South.
Hi all, crazy busy couple of weeks so not been on for a while so had totally missed EF's brilliant news - congratualations !!!! So pleased for you .
And Happy Birthday to Camio for yesterday, hope your family treat you to a fab birthday weekend to make up for the lack of pressies!
My at home day today (yay) but Anna is being a right grumpy madam so I've told her that I'm not going to talk to her if she keeps using her grumpy voice. Definitely one of the down sides of having 3 is that the youngest has 2 older siblings to learn bad behaviour from so is more likely to pick up stroppiness at an early age. She's still super cute when she's not being stroppy though .
So I thought it was about time I made use of the fact that I have my very own resident PT (although I think he's expecting payment in kind ) , so my hubby has written me a program and I'm actually really enjoying both the running and the weights sessions right now. Have been following it for the last 2 weeks and already lost 4lb which is good. Not so good is he's banned me from cake, chocolate, sweets and crisps , although to be fair my snacking had started to get a bit out of control and I do have a very sweet tooth!
CC - so you're now our qualified queen of pilates? Well done! I love my little pilates man, he always plays dodgy pan-pipes music during the class which I thought was a little odd to start with but when we had a replacement instructor the other week who didn't use music I really missed it and found it was much more of a slog with the only noise in the room being her talking and people grunting!
Will try and read back properly over the weekend but hope everyone else all good.
CM - uh oh to the ipad!
Vixo - I have been having an enormous clear-up today. My husband has so much cr*p hoarded, can't believe the amount of stuff I've unearthed that I thought he'd got rid of. We have loads of storage space but definitely don't utilise it properly and I need to make room for the treadmill too! Hope hubby enjoys his birthday.
J has got some Merrell barefoot type trainers which I got off Amazon, last time he wore them for Orienteering he said he found it much easier to run in them than normal trainers,although they have no water resistance at all but not fussed about that!! Agree price-wise there is very little difference, I think Clarkes are pretty expensive these days and I find their shoes very uninspiring. If I've got to spend that kind of money it's surprising what else you can find. S has some great waterproof long boots for school which are a german make and fabby warm and were cheaper than the Clarkes offering for starters and much more lightweight. Phew end of waffle there!!
Karen - great to hear you are enjoying some PT, enjoy the payment in kind too!!

Of course, I am so awful when I don't get to run so after one day of niggles I have turned what is probably a mild calf pull into some kind of drama that will last months - serves me right for googling it ... all I was looking for was some kind of massage/rollering suggestions - but there is so much info from people saying they have been out for weeks on end with what appeared to be something minor
Anyway, meant to be checking bus times for collecting hubby from somewhere once J has finished badminton
CM I have a camel outfit. When do you eed it for? Can post it Monday? PM me your new address, or text me lovely. In fact will text you now!!
Will read more later about to collect boys and jump in car to go to my bro's for my Mum's birthday weekend...
Have yet to discover if we need an outfit for an xmas concert. If it's a camel I know who to ask!
I think we have another birthday girl........
Tangy Twirley step right up! Happy Birthday to you
