How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Think Lotte is starting her crazy run tonight ... so GOOD LUCK, hope it's not too icy.
Glad you made it CM. I think we all understand/agree where you are coming from and why too. (())
Well my treadmill is apparently being delivered tomorrow rather than Monday, and even better, delivery time is a 2 hour window AND it's 9.30-11.30. Long run will have to wait 'til Sunday now, but yay, how excited am I ... although building it might be fun!!!
Oh CM, sounds like a bug so bed and starvation for you my love!! Hope it comes to nothing.
Second Camlo on the 'Running Mums' childcare scheme (even if I do live in Scotland!!), totally agree with the sentiment, AND what a fab mum you are.
RF to friend moving away, that's tough, and keeping a secret too.
I ran in long-sleeved thermal, gloves, hat etc and didn't remotely break into a sweat on my 6 miles.
yes, getting mine out of its packaging was the problem. assembly was easy. i am sure it runs too fast tho - 10kph kills me on there, but as i ran a 10k in 52mins, i don't think it's because i can't run at 10kph!
don't think i'll be doing any running today. woke up feeling bright and breezy after a good night's sleep and stomach was rumbling with hunger. have eaten two bits of dry toast and feel again.
hope Rosie is ok, sonya. awful when they are poorly... and worse when they are babies because you have to give them milk as they usually won't drink much else and that just prolongs it (in my experience)
hope lotte is still ok this morning. seen on FB that she is doing well - sore hip flexor, but if that's all that's sore, she's doing a grand job!!
camlo - no my screen isn't fixed. am using it with a crack but not letting the kids use it at the moment. i now have insurance (4.99 a month) and it says you can't claim for the first 2 weeks, so i'm going to wait until after xmas and then claim on it. i know that's bad but ... hope you don't shop me in for insurance fraud!
oh god Vixo - not nice, the sleeplessness, the competitive tiredness AND a husband that clearly has an answer for everything!!! Can still remember being bone-weary tired at that stage when waiting for S to arrive, and I only had a toddler to contend with!!! Hope the day passes quickly ... any chance of a nap at some point?
CM - look after that tummy
I slept v badly too - no idea why as for once not stressing about anything ... tossed and turned until 3am and then dead to the world until 7am alarm ... bit bleary-eyed.
Not as bleary-eyed as Lotte though but she is storming it as expected but I can't see all the postings I think so not sure if she's finished yet???
tell him that when he can be 37 weeks pregnant and up half the night with a toddler, then you will have some truck with his view that it's physiological. sorry you feel so tired. i have often found that night-time wakings like that one are teeth-related with little ones. they are fine when they are with you in bed but as soon as you try and put them back in their bed, they scream the place down. then a couple of days later - out pops a tooth. am sure it has happened a handful of times with my 2.
i am waiting in for my oven. the site which tells me which slot i have today isn't working and i can pay 5p per minute to phone them and find out but frankly EVERYONE will be doing that today if their site is down and i don't really want to end up paying £10 to find out!
it is also so cold in the house, but that may be just me being slightly under par. time to don the duvet jacket while i type up audit findings.
Fingers crossed this delivery company seem really good - rang yesterday to confirm today (even though I WAS told Monday) and then guy rang again this morning to confirm 9-10.30 slot ... we shall see.
Look forward to wrestling with the packaging ... but then if you'd seen me wrestling with this large plank of wood the other day when I was trying to make a bridge to cross the ford ... it weighed a ton and had some kind of rusted up trap on it that kept getting caught on things ... I did eventually see sense and decide not to cross said ford!!
oh, and I have no heating on a my fingerless gloves and a coat CM ... I assume you have a hot water bottle though - they are ace if sitting still working.
i haven't had any confirmation about my delivery. it said i would get a text but i haven't. of course it costs me to phone them to check and everyone will be on the line so it will cost a fortune. argh
no hot water bottle unfortunately. the kids have them but they have taken them to T's. don't know why he can't buy them hot water bottles tbh. save taking them back and forwards all the time!!
